As we have discussed at length on this blog, the moments and even days after an accident can be a confusing and stressful time for all involved. You may face hospital time, large bills and time off from work. One thing you should never have to worry about is receiving the compensation you deserve from the negligent party. Though there is a temptation to just take on the reckless driver yourself, we have three reasons why it is in your best interest to hire a professional to represent you and your needs.
Why Hire a Lawyer?
- Champion Your Case: A lawyer, whether dealing with insurance companies or representing you in court, is there to champion you and your case. What better way to make a case for your claims than to have an experienced professional represent you with the facts and evidence that matters most?
- Apply Knowledge and Expertise: When facing an insurance company that has, no doubt, had experience defending itself from claims in the past, hiring a lawyer is not only smart; some would say it is borderline necessary in order to have a fair shot at winning your case. Experienced attorneys have an intimate understanding of state and federal laws that could make all the difference if your case does not settle.
- Work for You: From medical bills to police reports, an experienced lawyer knows exactly which documents will be important to your case, and where to procure such items. If you are seriously injured, you may not be ready, willing or able to conduct the legwork that this requires.
Why hire a lawyer? In the simplest terms, they ensure that you are not taken advantage of when facing opportunistic insurance companies, whose primary goal is to reduce your claim. You deserve an expert to who will put in the work, apply the knowledge and champion you throughout the claims process. Before recording a statement after an accident, be sure to consult an attorney in order to protect yourself and safeguard your recovery.
