Don’t Leave Money on the Table: Have a Car Accident Lawyer Get It for You
We’re in the business of being fair, meaning we won’t lie to you: hiring a car accident compensation lawyer after an accident isn’t always necessary.
If someone taps your bumper in a parking lot or stop sign at low speed, you likely won’t have any injuries, and there will be minor or no damage to either vehicle. In these types of situations, reasonable parties often agree not to file a claim.
If you have minor injuries, like a scrape or bruise, filing a claim may be more trouble than it’s worth. However, there’s a big caveat: car accident injuries can be insidious, hiding at first before progressively worsening over days, weeks, or even months. If you are unsure whether you’ve been injured more severely than it first appears, the wisest decision is to seek medical attention and contact a car accident lawyer.
For any collision involving more than minor injuries and/or vehicle damage, a car accident compensation lawyer is your wallet’s best friend and, for most people, an invaluable source of stress relief before, during, and after the claims process.
You might be thinking, what will an attorney do for me that I can’t do for myself? It’s a fair question, so let us answer it.
1) Exceptional Investigative Skills And Easy Access To Make-Or-Break Evidence
A competent car accident compensation lawyer will thoroughly investigate the accident and comprehensively review the police report, witness statements, photographs, and medical records. They will also closely examine the location of the accident to look for possible causes that fit with the nature of the accident and injuries. For example, potholes, faded road paint, broken streetlamps, and obstructions to visibility are just a few of the environmental factors contributing to collisions.
Lawyers can obtain surveillance footage from nearby businesses much more quickly than you’d be able to on your own. Some companies require you to complete paperwork and follow specific instructions before they hand over any footage. In the meantime, crucial footage could disappear (most surveillance footage is overwritten or deleted relatively quickly).
Another invaluable resource at a lawyer’s disposal is the use of accident reconstruction experts who can provide deeper insight into the collision, often tracing the events back to the at-fault driver.
Ultimately, a lawyer will build a solid case to support your claim and justify the maximum compensation possible.
2) Clout With Car Insurance Adjusters And A Sharp Eye For Their Ploys
A car accident lawyer well-versed in auto collision cases will have extensive experience dealing with insurance adjusters, whose only goal is to save the insurance company money by denying or minimizing compensation claims.
The mere presence of a well-respected attorney on your case will send a silent threat of litigation to insurance adjusters. In other words, insurance adjusters know they can’t take advantage of lawyers like they would try to take advantage of you, an injured plaintiff who is not only in need of money but without legal representation.
A qualified lawyer will be fully equipped with knowledge of the law, legal strategies and tactics, and a network of professionals who can assist them in more effectively navigating the car accident claims process and negotiations with insurance adjusters.
3) Time And Energy That You Can’t Afford To Spend
Since car accident lawyers are already familiar with the car accident claims process, including the requirements for filing an injury claim with one or more defendants, they can complete the process more efficiently and accurately than ordinary individuals.
They can also speak on your behalf during negotiations with difficult and unfair insurance adjusters, so you don’t even have to be present. If the case goes to court, they will pull from decades of experience to present the evidence, cross-examine witnesses, and execute persuasive arguments.
Accomplishing these things well is incredibly time-consuming and nearly impossible without a legal background.
There’s one more point to make about the benefit of hiring a lawyer after a car accident in Florida: you won’t pay your lawyer a penny unless you win your case. Once you win your case, you will use a percentage of your settlement to compensate your attorney.
