2 Benefits To Hiring An Attorney After A Car Accident

If you get in a car accident, insurance companies don't always want to pay you the money that you feel you deserve. The other driver may want to sue you because of the accident, or you may have to end up taking them to court because they need to pay your medical bills and to replace your car. If that happens, you shouldn't try to handle it yourself. You will need to have an attorney who specializes in the law surrounding car accidents help you out so that you can get what you deserve. Here are a couple of reasons why hiring a lawyer can be a good option:

Quicker End

One of the biggest benefits to have an attorney on your side is that you are likely to have a quicker end to the entire process. That's because insurance companies don't want to spend a lot of time in court or risk that the settlement ordered by the judge is going to be more than they want to pay. When presented with the fact that you have a lawyer, they are more likely to want to settle out of court because they know the risks of a long court case. 

Better Settlement

When the insurance company or other driver offers you an out-of-court settlement, they are likely going to low-ball you. That means that they are going to try to get you to accept the smallest possible amount. Your lawyer will help you to get a much better settlement. They can negotiate with the insurance companies and all the lawyers for the other side for you. The way that they will do that is to lay out the basics of your case and show where you deserve more and then ask for more. The attorney generally won't show the other side all the evidence when they are in negotiations. That's because it's possible that your attorney won't be able to get a settlement for you and showing them all the evidence of your case means that the other side can better prepare their case against you. 

Getting in a car accident can end up causing you a lot of money. If you are trying to get what you deserve and the insurance companies and/or drivers from the other side don't want to pay you what you deserve, then you need to get an attorney to help you. That can help you get the money you need in order to pay medical bills and replace your vehicle.

Texting driver caused my accident

Have you ever picked up your phone and sent or read a text message while you were driving? Do you know just how dangerous that is? All that it takes is one split second for your life to change forever and to change someone else's life forever. I was hit from behind because a well-dressed business man couldn't wait until he was stopped to respond to a text message. I saw him coming in my rear view mirror, but there was nothing that I could do about it. This accident happened over a year ago and I still suffer every day. My blog is filled with information that can help others that have been injured by texting drivers.
