If you have been hurt in a car wreck, you may be wondering whether you should handle the claim and deal with each of the insurance companies on your own or if you should contact a car accident attorney.
While handling a car accident claim on your own can be challenging, it can be done by learning about the process—from making sure there is clear liability to understanding what your damages are, identifying and locating which policies of insurance are available to pay for the damages and the injuries, and understanding how to communicate those damages to the insurance companies.
An experienced injury attorney serves as an advocate for his or clients by
- Allowing clients to focus on recovery rather than dealing with the insurance companies.
- Gathering the documentation needed to understand your injuries and prove your claim.
- Having a familiarity with the claims process and paperwork.
- Negotiating with the insurance adjuster for a fair settlement with a full understanding of the damages.
Most car accident attorneys offer a free consultation if you need more information.
