Were you at fault for the accident?
One of the biggest questions an insurance agent will look at is whether or not the accident was your fault. This may come into dispute if the other party insists that it was when it wasn’t. Hiring a personal injury or car accident attorney at this point will help you win a case against you if you are wrongly accused of being at fault for an accident.
What can a lawyer do for me?
A personal injury attorney will step in and speak on your behalf so you no longer have to deal with the complicated paperwork and phone calls with your car insurance. Most lawyers work on a contingency basis, which means you won’t accumulate fees because they get paid once you win a case. However, talk to your lawyer about the fees before you take any steps because each attorney will work differently. This will also depend on your case.
If you were injured due to a car accident, a lawyer might be able to get you medical benefits, compensation, and have your car insurance reimburse you for other expenses accumulated due to the car accident. Talking to one will give you a better understanding of your case because each car accident is different. How much you can expect to receive due to an injury also depends on your current car insurance policy.
