Below are the most important reasons. Please contact Guajardo & Marks after reading this article if you have been in an accident and want a complimentary case evaluation.
Assess the Claim
Personal injury attorneys handle car accident claims every day. They can quickly and accurately assess your car crash claim. Attorneys with experience in this area of the law know quickly whether your potential claim is viable. If it is, they can offer to represent you so you can recover medical costs, lost wages and pain and suffering compensation. But if it is not, you will know quickly and will not have spent much time, and no money at all.
Work With Aggressive Car Insurance Companies
Once you have been in a car accident, dealings with car insurance companies can become contentious, whether it is yours or the other driver’s. Car insurance companies maximize their profits by reducing or denying claims. Also, if the other driver did not have insurance, you may have to make an uninsured motorist claim on your own policy. This can be a confusing matter best handled by an attorney.
Your personal injury attorney can handle all communications with the stakeholder insurance companies. It reduces the load on you so that you can focus on your recovery from the accident.
Recommend Medical Treatments
After your car accident, you may have very serious injuries that you do not know how to handle. Personal injury attorneys have seen many accidents and most injuries over time in their legal work. They probably can offer you advice about tests to have to confirm your medical diagnosis and what to do going forward medically.
Estimate the Value of the Settlement
Personal injury attorneys deal with car accident cases every day, so they usually have a better idea about what a proper settlement amount is for your particular case. They can let you know whether you have unrealistic expectations about the claim, and whether it would be better to settle or go to trial.
Compete on Fair Ground
You can bet the insurance company for the defendant has an attorney. So you want to have a personal injury attorney working your side as well. This increases the chances your claim will be successful.
