Do I need a lawyer for a car accident claim?

By  Randall E Reinhardt |   | Posted in " Car Accidents, Personal Injury "

If you've just been in a car accident, then you may be wondering if you should hire a lawyer to represent you. Some accident claims are simple and will give you no trouble. Others, however, require counsel from an experienced car accident attorney who will protect your best interests.

If you are experiencing any of the following scenarios, then you should seriously consider retaining a legal representative.

  1. The other driver and their insurance company are trying to hold you liable for the accident. If fault is contested, then you will have to go to court to prove your case. An experienced attorney can guide you through the process and argue on your behalf.
  2. You were injured in the accident and are trying to recover damages for medical bills, lost wages, and emotional trauma. While claims for property damage are usually somewhat minor, claims for other damages can be extremely costly. You don't want to risk losing out-of-pocket expenses that are more than a few thousand dollars. If you have been permanently injured, then you may be able to obtain compensation for the rest of your life. A car accident attorney can help you determine a fair settlement amount and negotiate with the insurance company.
  3. The insurance company denied your claim. If you have already filed a claim that was denied, then you need a laywer to step in. A legal representative can help you compile the necessary information to prove that you are entitled to compensation.
