Should I Settle My Auto Accident Case Without A Lawyer?
After being injured in an auto accident that was clearly the fault of another driver, you may think it is obvious that you will receive a settlement for your injuries and that there is no need for a lawyer. This belief is false as it is highly critical that you hire a lawyer before settling an injury settlement.
We recommend hiring a lawyer as soon as possible after being in a vehicle accident. There are several factors that a lawyer can control and use to help strengthen your case. When you call a lawyer after your accident, the first step they will take is to get all of the necessary information about the accident. This includes accident reports, statements from witnesses and first responders, and medical reports. They will also take over communication with the insurance company so you don’t end up unknowingly jeopardizing your own settlement.
How a Lawyer Helps Your Settlement
A lawyer will help your settlement in several ways. One of those is ensuring that you are seen by the most trusted doctors. This will ensure that the injuries you are including in the lawsuit are correct. There have been cases in which injured victims have not known the true extent of their injuries due to the fact that they saw an inexperienced doctor. This can greatly affect the amount of compensation that you receive.
A lawyer will also help you to file all of the appropriate paperwork by their deadlines. The lawyers at our office are experienced in the practice area of vehicle accidents so they know the several deadlines that must be met. They will also read over all documents before you sign them, ensuring that you do not unknowingly give the insurance company access to personal records that could jeopardize your claim.
If you would like to make sure that you receive the full amount of compensation that you deserve for your injuries, you should definitely contact a personal injury attorney after your vehicle accident. They deal with cases like yours every day and know each and every step of the legal process.
You are going to have professionals working against you, trying to keep the insurance company from paying out the full amount that you deserve. Don’t you think that you should have a professional working for you to make sure this doesn’t happen?
