After a car accident, you might be considering representing yourself in court or negotiating with the other insurance company yourself. We do not recommend this, as it’s been proven that people who represent themselves in court do not get as much settlement than those who have a lawyer on their side. Apart from the increase in compensation, here are several more reasons why you need a car accident lawyer:
Investigate the Car Accident
Most car accidents have many different factors that contributed to the wreck. Several common factors we see include unsafe driving behavior, the weather, lack of proper road signs, and more. Your car accident attorney will investigate the incident and look at all aspects of the wreck, not just who hit who.
Act as Your Voice
Your car accident attorney will be your representation and voice when dealing with the other parties insurance company and lawyer. The wording is very important when communicating with the other side, so having an experienced lawyer who knows exactly what to say and how to say it will benefit you immensely. This also takes the pressure off you, allowing you to focus on medical attention and getting better.
Conduct a Negotiation
Most car accident settlements are negotiated outside the courtroom. If you don’t know how much you should be compensated for your accident, you won’t know what amount is acceptable when the other party offers you compensation. Your car accident lawyer will know when to deny or accept an offer and make sure you receive an adequate amount.
