You or a loved one has just been in a major car accident, and the damages are extensive. The first response is getting the medical help those involved will need. After the dust from the accident settles and you’re ready to move forward with your insurance claim, you may find resistance either from your insurance company or the other driver when trying to handle matters in the best way possible. What should you do?
First, realize that you can get help. As much as you may want to, you simply cannot do it alone. Three reasons you need an attorney:
- Someone has to be your investigator. After an accident, so many questions are up in the air, especially if another driver is claiming they are not at fault. You need an attorney to probe the ins and outs of the case in a way that you would not be able to do so yourself. Gathering evidence like witness and expert testimony, medical records, police and vehicular damage reports and photos all help your case. With the serious medical battles you’re facing, we know how difficult it will be to do it on your own.
- Someone has to be your communicator. Think of all the back and forth phone calls or letters and emails you have to do with any minor car accident- the long hours on the phone, waiting to hear back from the insurance company, calling an auto repair shop, etc. Now imagine the complicated communication is increased exponentially because you’ve had a major accident and now there’s medical complications involved. As much as you may try you won’t be able to consult with the proper professionals in as much detail as an attorney would be able to.
- Someone has to be your fighter. Surviving your major car accident should be the only fight you should have to fight. Your energy is best spent on recovering and focusing on getting better. You need someone who can assess the damages caused by an accident and in turn prepare for your trial. Maybe you aren’t the best person to do these things, and that’s ok, because you need an expert who has done it multiple times and know what it is going to take to win your case.
