Do I need a lawyer after a car accident?
Every 14 seconds, someone is injured as a result of a car accident; they’re no small matter. If you've been involved in an automobile accident, and you've been injured as the result of the negligence of another person, you need a lawyer. The reason is because most people, 9 times out of 10, have never been involved in a serious accident before. Even putting the legal matters aside, it’s a complicated, chaotic situation for someone to be in. They don't know what to do, and there’s so much that needs to be done. They have to get their car fixed. They need to get their doctor, get seen by the doctor. They need their bills paid. They have to deal with their insurance company, and the other party’s insurance company too. All of that could be too much for anyone, not to mention someone who’s recently sustained injuries and potentially been through emotional trauma. Handling all of those moving parts, along with your everyday life, you career, and any injuries you might have sustained seems almost unreasonable; and that’s why you should call in professionals. Relieving all of that pressure is one thing we prioritize for our clients. When you come into our office immediately after an accident and entrust us with all of those concerns, we take care of all of that for you. We take control of everything from your case, so you can move in the right direction towards recovery without all the added stress; our goal is to get you better. You just focus on that, and we’ll deal with the rest.
Without an attorney, the victim of a car accident can find themselves injured, emotionally distressed, financially strained, and constantly bombarded with more demands and questions and phone calls from insurance companies. And make no mistake, these insurance companies aren’t out to do right by you, to help you the way you need and ought to be helped. They do right by their bottom line, and people get raked across the coals in the process every day. The stress and anxiety alone would be enough to sabotage anyone’s recovery. Dealing with a car accident alone means going against all of this chaos and all of these outside forces essentially defenseless. You might have a loving, supportive network of friends and family, but at the end of the day, they can’t do for you what a lawyer can. Having a lawyer by your side ensures three things. The first: you don't have to worry about dealing with the insurance companies; we do that for you. The second: you don't get taken advantage of by the insurance companies, because we will never let that happen. And third: you can sit back and try to get better from the injuries and the suffering that you’re going through. One of the worst feelings an injured person can deal with is the feeling of being alone and defenseless. There’s no reason to feel that way, and if you do, please reach out to us so we can step in on your behalf.
