Car accidents are common. Most people don’t understand how the car accident process works. They simply exchange contact and insurance details with the other party and don’t have a clue as to what to do next.

Although some accidents are minor, some can be life-altering. Sometimes you sustain injuries that may prevent you from working or leave you with heavy medical bills. Sometimes insurance companies don’t pay enough or refuse to pay at all. In either case, there are times when you have to pursue a claims action with the other driver.

When considering a car accident claim, it is best to consult with an attorney specializing in personal injury, who has experience handling car accident cases. Hiring a car accident attorney increases the odds of obtaining damages when there is a case for negligence.

An attorney can also help you recover any economic or non-economic damages, including lost income, medical bill reimbursement, “pain and suffering” and harm to your car or property.

Before you consult an attorney, think about the following questions. These questions could influence the value of your claim and shed light as to whether you should hire legal representation:

You can file some personal injury lawsuits or compensation insurance claims yourself, especially if the value is low. But it is always better to consult a car accident attorney knowledgeable about your state’s laws regarding accidents.

Most personal injury attorneys offer a free case evaluation to review your situation. It won’t hurt your pocket to reach out and ask the attorney whether or not they can help you with your case.

Still not persuaded that you need to hire an attorney? Continue reading to learn about some of the benefits.

If you attempt to file a suit by yourself, you are unlikely to know what rights and compensation you are entitled to. Being well-versed in the law, an attorney can help identify the various damages that result from car crashes and which apply to your case.

Types of damages may include:
You may also be able to recover compensation for your family’s “loss of consortium” – a remedy you probably wouldn’t consider without a lawyer’s guidance.

Many people claiming personal injury underestimate the level of their damages, but an attorney can help you quantify just how much your damages are worth so you can be compensated fairly.

As a layperson who does not know the law, seeking an attorney’s help is crucial in making a case. With the expertise and insight personal injury lawyers bring, you can collect admissible evidence, file your case, cite precedent and understand the workings of the legal system in your area.

All this can be achieved in a short period with the help of an attorney in a situation that would otherwise be confusing and time-consuming.

Many insurance companies offer initial deals that are not fair or equitable. In some instances, they may offer you an amount that doesn’t cover your damages or deny your claim altogether.

Personal injury attorneys will evaluate your case along with any evidence, and they will help you receive fair compensation for sustained injuries and property damage, for example. Should the matter go to court, your attorney will conduct legal research and help you obtain witnesses, fill out paperwork, and present your case effectively to the court.

Pursuing a personal injury claim requires extensive legal knowledge. Not only can an experienced attorney analyze potential legal issues, but they’ll be able to evaluate your case, advise you of your rights and help you obtain the best possible legal solution.

Since they understand the claim process and have advanced negotiation and advocacy skills, a personal injury attorney can review your insurance policies and subrogation rights, conduct a comprehensive investigation, assist in negotiating with insurance companies, help you prepare for trial and more. In essence, they understand the nuances of the law and will work hard to protect your rights and obtain the best outcome for you.

Finally, many people are under the impression that hiring an attorney to represent their personal injury case will cost them a pretty penny. However, most attorneys charge a fair fee of one-third of your total claim. They work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you’ll pay nothing upfront and will only pay the lawyer if they obtain a monetary award for you in most instances.

As the claimant, you are likely to recover what is due to you should you hire an attorney to settle your medical and personal losses. It is better to hire an attorney and pay their fees rather than settle for the probability of a significant financial loss.

Car accidents occur daily, and although you may be able to obtain a settlement offer through your insurance company, there are many benefits to hiring a personal injury attorney.

Not only will they help you evaluate your case, but they’ll usually also help you obtain higher settlements.
