I Was Injured in a Car Accident. Should I Hire a Car Accident Attorney?
If you have been injured in a car accident in Florida, you may be wondering if it’s a good idea to hire a car accident attorney. Not all auto accidents require legal representation, but if the accident resulted in personal injuries and/or financial loss, it’s a good idea to at least consult a car accident attorney and have him/her review your situation to determine if you have a case.
In general, you should consult a car accident attorney after an auto accident that results in:
- Severe injuries
- Long-term or permanent disabilities
- Expensive medical bills
- A significant loss of wages due to the injuries sustained
- Disputed liability (when the insurer says their policyholder was not at fault)
- Refusal by the insurer to pay damages or refusal to pay a fair amount
How A Car Accident Attorney Can Help You
Most drivers understand that they can file a claim against an insurance company on their own. Indeed, many drivers do this for fender-benders and minor accidents that only involve property damage so they can get help paying for repairs. But when personal injuries are involved, the situation becomes much more complicated. The stakes are higher and the insurance company will do everything it can to avoid having to make a payout. That means bringing in teams of lawyers and expert witnesses to try and get the case tossed out or the compensation lowered.
Hiring a car accident attorney is the best way to stand up for yourself in these types of situations. He or she will fight for your rights, advocate your position, and follow all procedures and rules to ensure the case isn’t tossed out on a minor technicality.
Hire A Car Accident Attorney With Personal Injury Experience
Many car accidents are subject to a statute of limitations, which sets a timeframe within which a claim must be filed. So it’s important not to wait too long before hiring an attorney and proceeding with a claim, but you want to hire the right attorney.
The very first thing you should look for in a car accident attorney is personal injury experience and specifically, car accident experience. This will help ensure you get an attorney who is familiar with the ins and out of car accident cases that have resulted in personal injuries and the peculiarities of such cases.
