Being involved in any type of accident can be stressful and frustrating. You are left trying to figure things out, while the insurance company keeps hounding you for information and to take a settlement on your claim. While you might be considering taking their settlement offer to put an end to it all and get the funding you need to pay your bills, it might be one of the worst mistakes you could make. Here’s a few reasons why you need to hire an accident attorney to handle your case for you.
They know the ins and outs of the law.
With an attorney, you are getting someone who knows the specifics of the law. They aren’t going to let the insurance company try to use their jargon to confuse you and make you feel like you have no other option than to settle. They know their tactics and will fight hard for what they know is right and what you deserve.
When you have an attorney working on your side, you can make sure you are compensated for everything that you deserve. Insurance companies will often try to shortchange victims on their claim. They don’t like to tell you all of the things that you are eligible for compensation for. Things like mileage to and from the doctor, prescription costs, co-pays for medical appointments, lost wages, pain and suffering and much more can all be rolled into your claim. You deserve to be fairly compensated, which is where your attorney can come in and make sure nothing is left to chance.
They will do the legwork for you.
An attorney will handle collecting documentation and evidence to substantiate your claim for you. This allows you to spend time focusing on healing and getting back to doing the things you love without having to feel stressed out about everything going on with your case. They know what paperwork is needed and where to get it to make sure the insurance company doesn’t have a leg to stand on when it comes to defending your claim.
