Why You Should Hire a Lawyer After a Car Accident
Posted By Todd Miner Law || Sep 19, 2016
Every year, tens of thousands of drivers are involved in preventable car accidents caused by negligent and reckless driving behavior, costing hundreds of billions of dollars in losses. At Todd Miner Law, we believe that innocent drivers should not have to suffer – financially or personally – for the irresponsible driving behaviors of others. This is why we work hard to protect the rights of our clients by seeking maximum compensation on their behalf.
The aftermath of a car accident can be overwhelming, which is why it is beneficial for car accident injury victims to have someone on their side who can put their mind at ease and guide them through what comes next. Here’s why it is important to consider working with a car accident lawyer:
- It levels the playing field. Insurance companies employ teams of lawyers to fight claims. They know how to diminish the value of a claim or deny liability outright, and they know they are likely to achieve success if a person attempts to make a claim without good legal representation. In order to potentially increase your chances of success, it is wise to get an attorney who knows how to fight insurance company tactics and present a strong case on your behalf.
- You may not know the true value of your claim. Many car accident victims are unaware of just how much their claim is worth. Insurance companies know this, which is why they may be quick to offer you a settlement that is much lower than the true value of your claim. Without an attorney to fight for maximum compensation, you may not be aware of all of your potential legal rights to recovery.
- Proving your case can be difficult on your own. Filing a case can be complex, but proving it can be even more so. In fact, it often takes a team of experts to determine who was responsible for a crash, how much physical damage it caused, and how much compensation you will need to cover present and future medical needs.
- You run the risk of not receiving any compensation at all. If you wait too long to file a claim or have a claim denied because you improperly presented your case, you could lose your right to pursue further legal action. This means that you will be stuck paying the costs of an accident that was caused by someone else’s carelessness.
