Trauma and anxiety can be overwhelming in the moments after a car crash. For a time following the accident, worry and uncertainty persist. These feelings can only be relieved when the injuries and damages are assessed, and a proactive plan emerges for dealing with the fallout.
Just as accident victims seek the help of medical professionals to determine the extent of the injuries, the victim must also seek help regarding the other areas of their life the accident impacted as well. Doctors and hospital staff will address the physical harm to the victim’s body, but what about the other consequences of the incident?
A common expectation is that car insurance will make everything okay again.
Despite the friendly commercials promising that your auto insurance carrier will help you after an accident, the company also employs representatives whose job is to save the company money by finding ways to get away with paying as little as possible, or to deny your claim altogether.
Someone on Your Team
For this reason alone, it can make sense to speak to an attorney familiar with insurance companies. A knowledgeable lawyer can advise you on your rights and devise ways to beat the insurance companies.
A good car accident lawyer will have the experience to suggest things that you have not considered. Timely contact with an attorney can mean you have someone immediately on your side. As you focus on healing, your chosen advocate can be preserving evidence to support your case, fielding calls from insurance representatives, and keeping you from making costly mistakes.
Having a lawyer speak for you will allow you to avoid saying anything to insurance companies that could be used against you.
A lawyer with experience pursuing car accident claims can advise you against accepting undervalued settlement offers, calculate a fair amount that will cover all current and expected costs and personal damages, and fight for what you are due. A fair settlement should include current medical bills and property damage, and costs for ongoing treatment and an accounting of future economic impacts of the accident, such as lost wages, including the loss of potential for future earning growth.
Live Your Life
A lawyer on your side allows you to focus on your life. Whether you need to concentrate on healing and rehabilitation, or you simply want to be able to enjoy your time without agonizing over a process that can easily become overwhelming, handing over the dizzying legal details of the case to a qualified legal professional can alleviate stress and speed your recovery.
