3 reasons to work with an attorney after a motor vehicle accident

You were passing through a local intersection when a young driver failed to stop. She slammed into your vehicle, leaving you with injuries and your vehicle in bad shape. You wanted to deal with her insurance company directly, but your family members suggested that it might be better to work with an attorney. What should you do?

One thing you should know is that attorneys do specialize in helping individuals who have been hurt in car accidents. They're familiar with the laws and helping individuals get fair settlements or payouts for their claims. In the case that the insurance company isn't fair or in the case that the driver doesn't have insurance, the attorney can go to court and fight on your behalf.

Why should you work with an attorney? Here are a few other reasons.

  • He or she has your best interests at heart

Instead of wondering if you've really gotten everything you deserve, your attorney will make sure of it. He or she has handled situations like yours and knows what to expect from different insurance companies. Your attorney can handle negotiations and help you recognize when you've received a fair settlement offer.

  • Your attorney handles the details

Your focus has to be on your health. Why spend hours on the phone with an insurance agent or hours putting together a claim? Your attorney is there so you can rest, recover and get back to your life.

  • Your attorney protects you from mistakes

The last thing you want to find out is that you got less money than you need for future care. You don't want to find out the payout won't cover a new vehicle or your needs. Your attorney protects you from making financial mistakes that could cost you thousands of dollars in the future.

These are a few reasons that working with an attorney could help you. The helpfulness of an attorney can't be overlooked after a serious injury.
