After being in an accident, it can be unnerving making your next steps. Should I call a lawyer? Is it worth hiring one? You’ll find yourself uncertain what a car accident lawyer does and whether they can help you.
Car accident lawyers are also called personal injury attorneys. When the victims of accidents or injuries deserve the money to pay for medical care and other costs, personal injury attorneys fight to recover what is owed to them by the insurance companies. While some attorneys focus only on helping victims, others take all kinds of cases. There are even lawyers who will represent car accident victims on one case, then turn around and represent the insurance company on another case.
Premier Law Group believes that our clients deserve the best experience and results from an attorney who work exclusively to help the victims of such cases.
What do car accident lawyers do?
Car accident attorneys are well versed in the law and the process around auto accidents. If you’ve been injured in one, here are some of the things an attorney can help you with:
- Help you understand your legal rights and options, often in a single free session
- Recommend a doctor who specializes in your kind of injury and will give you the full treatment you need
- Help you hold off medical bills until you have received your insurance money
- Negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf
- If needed, take your case to court to get you the money you need
Throughout the entire process, the goal of your car accident lawyer is to get you the most money possible, so that all of your needs are taken care of.
Do I need a car accident lawyer?
You are not required to have a lawyer after a car accident. You can make an insurance claim on your own and attempt to get the money you need. Unfortunately, what we see in many cases is that the insurance company will offer a lowball figure—especially to a victim without legal representation. At first, this money may seem like “quick cash,” but you may be dealing with your injury for months or years. It may even affect your ability to work. That’s why we believe in assessing the full cost of all treatments before giving the insurance company a number, and then bargaining hard to get that amount. This amount is often much larger than what the insurance company initially offered.
