When Should You Hire a Car Accident Attorney?
A common question we see involves whether it is necessary to retain an attorney after a car accident, and if so, when. This question has an easy answer. Yes and right away. There are a number of reasons for this:
1. You are unlikely to be able to settle your case for as much money without a lawyer. The insurance company won’t take you seriously without legal representation. It will offer you as little money as it thinks it can get away with. Most of the time, the lawyer will more than pay for his fee by the results he gets for you.
2. You can easily destroy your case. The insurance adjuster will act like s/he is your friend and try to get you to say something that will damage your case. You should let your attorney handle your case. We will protect the value of your claim from day one and make sure that any communications with the insurance company are handled properly.
3. We are prepared to litigate your case. In order to prepare an auto accident case properly, we assume we will have to go to trial from the beginning. A lack of proper preparation from the first moment can cause issues and again, decrease the value of your case.
