Your day started out like any other, with work and other responsibilities. Then in an instant, your life is changed forever because of a car accident. Ever since that day, you’ve been in pain and your bills are mounting. Beyond the healthcare costs associated with the accident itself, you have needed to take time off work which means other bills are getting harder and harder to pay as well. You’ve lost the enjoyment in life you used to have and your hobbies have had to be dropped. To make this entire situation worse, all of this is the fault of someone else. 

You suddenly find yourself confronted with life-altering health challenges and massive financial burdens, both of which you did nothing to cause. This is where a personal injury lawyer can and should be brought in to help. Hiring a lawyer is your best chance to get the financial compensation you deserve. This is true for several reasons, including:

#1 You won’t be dealing with the insurance company alone. Too often, insurance companies want to take advantage of injured car accident victims. We won’t let this happen to you! The only reason insurance companies have for dealing with you directly is that they believe it will give them a better chance of not paying the money you deserve. Having an experienced car accident attorney on your side helps prevent that from happening.

#2 A lawyer is well-skilled in negotiations. Often, insurance companies representing legally-liable parties try to sidestep dealing with an accident victim’s lawyer by approaching a victim right away with an offer to settle a claim immediately. They do this because they know you won’t be able to negotiate for yourself as well as a lawyer will be able to. Lawyers engage in these negotiations every day, so they know exactly what to say and do in order to fight for what you deserve.

#3 It shows you’re willing to go to trial. Hiring a lawyer shows the other side that you mean business! Realistically, most car accident cases settle out of court through negotiations and mediation. That being said, getting the most money possible requires showing the other side that you and your lawyer are ready, willing, and able to take a case to trial.
