Car accidents cause a lot more damage than simply putting a dent in your vehicle. Additional damages include expensive medical bills, lost wages, loss of enjoyment making it impossible or difficult to do many of things that you enjoy doing and most importantly, not being in the same physical health that you once enjoyed.
Unfortunately, all too often insurance companies do not take most of these life-changing factors into consideration when they are presenting a settlement offer. Most often it is in your best interest to have an experienced personal injury attorney with extensive experience dealing with car accidents on your side.
What Does My Car Accident Attorney Do?
A personal injury attorney will provide valuable assistance during your claim process by taking away the frustration of dealing with the insurance company. This will allow you to focus on what is important, getting better.
Your attorney will be the main point of contact with the insurance companies and file the necessary claims. Additionally, insurance companies will often deny claims and/or medical treatment in order to save money. Having an experienced personal injury on your side can minimize the likelihood of insurance companies using questionable tactics.
Your attorney will also be able to ensure you get a fair settlement for your accident. Most people do not get into auto accidents every day. Therefore, it is hard to know what a fair settlement is. Experienced car accident attorneys live in the car accident world every single day. They know what the average settlement amounts are and know how to maximize your settlements. Your attorney takes into account all medical expenses, all wage loss both past and future, the damage was done to your vehicle and also how this accident has affected your life.
