Do You Need a Lawyer to Recover After a Car Accident?By Stewart J. Guss on September 5th, 2017
If you’ve been injured in a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you should first seek medical attention and then consult with a Texas personal injury attorney. Car accidents are notoriously complex and establishing and proving fault can require many resources. A car accident is no time to assert your independence and it is always wise to retain an experienced Texas car accident lawyer before you even file an insurance claim.
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, you will probably be required to give a statement, to complete attendant paperwork, and to provide documentation. All these tasks are important to your claim and how they are handled may have either a positive or negative effect on that claim. A personal injury attorney’s skill and knowledge can ensure that all tasks are completed accurately and in a timely fashion, protecting your rights and safeguarding your interests.
If you incurred injury or property damage in a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you know how difficult such an experience can be. You need an experienced personal injury lawyer to skillfully guide you through the process, preserve your right to compensation, and fight for the best possible outcome.
The Insurance Company and Your Claim
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, you probably recognize the outsize role that the insurance company or companies will play in your claim’s outcome. These companies assess accident damages but they are not in the business of protecting anyone’s right to compensation. Before you were involved in the accident, you probably weren’t sure exactly what your insurance provider covers in such situations. After you’ve brought a claim, however, you may find that your provider is less than proactive regarding your compensation. Don’t let an insurance company intimidate you. Instead, allow your experienced personal injury lawyer to skillfully fight for your rights and your recovery.
Your Rights and Your Recovery
If you’ve been injured in an auto accident, you know just how painful and disruptive the aftermath can be. Whether the injuries or property damage you suffer are relatively minor or significant, a car accident is likely to upset your world. Every car accident is unique but if someone’s negligence caused you to suffer an injury, you are entitled to compensation that can cover a variety of incurred losses, including:
- Property damage
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Incurred general expenses
You should have an attorney determine the full value of your case and review any settlement offers to ensure they are adequate before you ever accept payment.
