Being injured in a car accident can severely impact your life and make day-to-day activities difficult. However, this already overwhelming time can become even more stressful should you attempt to go through this difficult period alone. After being injured in an auto accident, one of the most important steps you can take is to consult a personal injury attorney to help guide and support you during this difficult time. Here are just a few of the reasons why it is important to consult an attorney after being injured in an auto accident.
Get Help Proving Liability
Even if the other driver is clearly at fault and should be liable for your injuries, more often than not the other party will not claim liability. It will then fall on your shoulders to prove to the insurance companies, and potentially the courts, that the other driver is at fault. A skilled attorney can be of great benefit here as they will have the knowledge and experience to know what to do, and they can collect statements and other evidence that can help to prove liability.
Ensure Your Claim is Not Undervalued
Even if the other driver claims fault, or you have been able to prove the other driver’s liability, many people are presented with settlements that they do not realize are much lower than they are owed. Fortunately, a personal injury attorney will have experience valuing claims similar to yours. They will take factors such as your medical bills, property damage, and time off of work into account to determine a fair settlement amount, and they will work hard to get you the settlement you deserve. Hiring an attorney will ensure that you are not taken advantage of during this difficult time.
Get Help Navigating The Legal Process
Filing a personal injury claim can be a complex legal process that requires endless legal documents to be filed within the specified statute of limitations. An attorney can be particularly beneficial here as they can take care of the legal process for you, allowing you to focus on your recovery.
