/ Blog/ Four Reasons to Hire a Car Accident Lawyer
Most auto accidents are simple fender-benders with damage claims that can routinely be handled through insurance companies. Unfortunately, some accidents involve significant damages to vehicles or property, and/or serious injuries or death. When this occurs, the process of recovering damages becomes much more complicated, and a car accident lawyer will be beneficial to you in a number of ways. Here are four reasons why:
1. Your lawyer will negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf.
Your lawyer will handle negotiations with the insurance agencies. This will allow you to focus on the most important thing: your recovery. A lawyer will negotiate on your behalf, and will not be intimidated by insurance company tactics.
2. Your lawyer will guide you through the legal process.
A lawyer is knowledgeable of state laws, and will help you avoid legal roadblocks. Your lawyer can also help you discover all the potential damages available.
3. Your attorney will protect you.
Some insurance companies will delay proceedings in order to avoid paying damages. They may attempt to deny your claim through technicalities, or simply refuse to pay medical bills. Your lawyer can protect you from these tactics and help make sure progress is being made on your case.
4. Your lawyer is there to serve and assist you in a troubling time.
Your attorney will handle all of the paperwork involved in recovering damages, such as taking statements and depositions, acquiring police reports, and managing all correspondence with the insurance companies.
