The Importance of Having a Personal Injury Attorney After a Car Crash
Dealing With Car Insurance Companies After an Accident
Oftentimes when it comes to car accidents, there is a dispute over who was at fault. Insurance companies are typically quick to process claims and try to do so for as little cost as possible. Dealing with these companies without the assistance of an attorney may cause your needs to glossed over as the company tries to rush through the claims process. A good lawyer will force the insurance company to slow the process and do a thorough job.
Furthermore, our experienced attorneys will assist you in communicating with the insurance company. While it may seem like these companies are trying to be helpful during a stressful time, they could be collecting information that can be used to potentially pay you less compensation than you deserve. They can use words out of context or twist your words to make it seem as though you are accepting responsibility for the accident.
How Insurance Companies Could Cheat You Without A Lawyer
Even though insurance companies claim to be on your side, they are businesses at the end of the day and they operate as such. Their job first and foremost is to make money, and their primary duty is to their company. Instead of immediately contacting an insurance company after a car accident, first talk to an experienced attorney and provide the details of the accident. Contrary to the insurance company, your lawyer’s primary duty is to you and their job is to protect you, your rights, and your interest.
Additionally, in many cases insurance companies will try to dispute blame. Without the advice of a lawyer, you could be accepting blame for an accident that was not your fault. A good lawyer will be able to prove that you were not at fault and get a fair amount of compensation for your injuries.
