If you’re unable to work due to an auto accident, or if an auto accident took the life of your loved one, you’re entitled to compensation for the physical and emotional damage. A car accident injury lawyer can help you get just that. A lawyer isn’t required in a personal injury claim but is highly recommended. These types of claims are challenging to win, especially if you do not understand personal injury law.
Thinking about filing a personal injury claim after an auto accident? Here are three reasons to hire an experienced car accident injury lawyer.
Why hire a car accident injury lawyer?
1. Fair representation.
If you’re not a lawyer, you may not know the ins and outs of personal injury law. You can educate yourself and read up on this subject, but without a personal injury background, you will be ill-prepared to fight the insurance company. A personal injury attorney knows the law and can level the playing field with the insurance company.
2. Negotiate a fair compensation.
The insurance company wants to settle your claim for the least amount of money. If you don’t have an experienced accident attorney on your side, the insurance adjuster may undervalue your claim or refuse compensation altogether. A car accident lawyer can estimate the value of your injuries and negotiate with the insurance company until you receive restitution.
3. Contingency fee.
Don’t put off hiring a car accident lawyer because you don’t have money. Many car accident attorneys offer free consultations and do not charge upfront fees. These lawyers agree to a contingency fee, wherein they get paid upon the successful completion of services.
