    Do I Need  A Car Accident Lawyer?

    Many people wouldn’t consider getting a lawyer if they were in a car accident.  That’s understandable – taking the step to hire legal representation is a pretty big deal and changes things a lot, right?   At Ritchie Reiersen Law in Ephrata, we hear this often. People are concerned that when an attorney gets involved the costs will be too high and the timeframe suddenly becomes way too long. 

    Having heard many of the concerns out there, we wanted to put some of those fears to rest for you.  Do you have to hire an attorney if you’ve been in a car accident? No, you don’t! We will be the first to tell you that not all car accidents require the services of an auto accident attorney.  However, having said that, we will also let you know that if you’ve been injured in an accident, you might find that the outcome of your claim is more favorable to you if an experienced lawyer is on your side.


    What Is My Injury Worth?

    Receiving the money you deserve after being injured in a car accident is not quite as easy as opening a claim and waiting for the check to arrive.  Unfortunately, the world of insurance claims was intentionally built to be confusing for the general public to navigate. This is beneficial to the insurance company, which is trying to make a profit, because the fewer people who can figure out how to navigate the claim and get maximum benefits awarded to them, the less money they end up paying.  

    Putting a dollar amount on your auto accident and injury can be a complicated process.  This figure takes into account the medical costs you have and will accrue, the physical and property damages, loss of wages and future earning power, pain and suffering, impact on relationships, and other ways that the injury has impacted your life.  As you can see from the list, it isn’t easy to calculate what that amount should be.

    At Ritchie Reiersen Law in Ephrata, our personal injury attorneys have had many years of experience helping people after they have been injured in a car accident.  We have the tools necessary to help assess the many ways the injury will impact your current and future life – and we are dedicated to work hard on your behalf to make sure the insurance company pays you a fair amount.  

    In the past several years we have helped clients recover over $25 million in damages due to the injuries they have received.  We have a long record of working with insurance companies and know how important it is to keep the needs of our clients at the front and center of all negotiations. 

    If you’ve been injured in a car accident and aren’t sure you’re getting fair treatment from the insurance company, call Ritchie Reiersen Law today at (509) 658-7000.  We offer a free no-obligation consultation and are happy to answer your questions. Working with insurance companies to settle a claim can be hard – but you don’t have to do it alone.  Ritchie Reiersen Law is here to help.
