Decatur Car Accident Attorneys

Car accidents are exceedingly dangerous and can leave you wondering where to turn for the help you need. If another driver’s negligence leaves you injured in a car accident, an experienced Decatur car accident attorney can help ensure that you obtain the compensation you need to cover your full range of damages and to achieve your fullest recovery.

Do I Really Need an Attorney?

After being injured in a car accident, many people wonder if they really need the additional expense of a car accident attorney – as they watch their medical bills pile up, and they continue to miss work during the course of their recovery. An experienced car accident attorney has the skill, legal knowledge, and resources to help effectively and efficiently guide your claim toward its most favorable resolution. An important point to remember is that reputable car accident attorneys typically work on a contingency basis, which means that you won’t pay for their legal services until after you have reached a settlement or have been awarded compensation by the court. This means you have nothing to lose by seeking legal assistance.

After Your Car Accident

You’ve been injured in a car accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, and while every such accident is unique, there are certain basic steps you can take to help maintain the integrity of your claim, including:

  • Seek the medical attention you need and carefully follow your doctor’s advice.
  • Don’t talk about the accident at the scene unless the police ask you direct questions, which you should answer as honestly and succinctly as possible.
  • Take a break from social media in an effort to ensure that you don’t provide the insurance company with unintended ammunition.

Your Damages

The damages associated with a serious car accident can be immense, including:

  • Medical Expenses – Your medical costs can range from emergency care to surgery and hospitalization, treatment from doctors and specialists, prescription medications, physical therapy, and much more.
  • Lost Wages – While you recover from your physical injuries, you’re very likely to miss hours on the job and to experience a loss in wages. If your injuries are very serious, you could be facing a decrease in your earning potential or even an altered career path.
  • Pain and Suffering – Both the physical and the emotional pain and suffering associated with a serious car accident can be debilitating. These are important damages that shouldn’t be neglected in your car accident claim.

A skilled car accident attorney will help ensure that your full array of damages is well represented in your claim.

Dealing with the Insurance Company

You’ve been injured by another motorist’s negligence, and it may seem like the simplest path forward is to allow the insurance company to do its job and cover your losses. Unfortunately, it’s often not this simple. The insurance company is invested in turning a profit, and toward this end, it has a wide variety of tools at its disposal, including:

  • The insurance company will very likely ask you to provide a recorded statement about the accident. While they do want an account of the accident, they are also hoping to lock you into statements that could come back to haunt your case. Insurance reps are skilled at prompting statements that can be misconstrued – especially from vulnerable accident victims like you. Your dedicated Decatur car accident attorney will communicate with the insurance company on your behalf.
  • If the insurance company makes an early settlement offer, it’s very likely an attempt to get you to settle before you become completely aware of the full extent of your damages. Never accept a settlement offer before you’ve gone over it carefully with a knowledgeable car accident attorney.
  • Conversely, the insurance company could stall the process in the hopes that you’ll simply give up or ultimately accept a paltry settlement.
  • The insurance company may also attempt to make the process so complicated that you lose your will to continue moving forward with the claim.

With an experienced car accident lawyer by your side, you won’t need to worry about what the insurance company is getting up to because he or she will do so on your behalf.

2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
