Experienced Attorneys Helping Accident Victims

man holding his injured neckAfter an accident, you may wonder if you need to speak with an attorney regarding your case. After all, your injuries appear to be minor. Even if this is the case, you should still speak with an attorney. Failing to consult an attorney could actually impair your ability to receive compensation later – especially if those minor injuries turn out to be much worse than you originally thought.

An Attorney Can Help with Your Insurance Settlement

While you may not need to file a lawsuit, you may still have to deal with insurance companies. An attorney can help you with this process. In these cases, the responsible party’s insurance company will need to make a lump-sum offer to you in order to reimburse you for your damages and medical costs. Insurance companies, however, are still businesses – this means that they are going to consider their bottom line more than your financial needs. Typically, an insurance company will offer less in their settlement than a victim actually deserves.

This is where an attorney’s role is critical. An attorney can help to negotiate with the insurance company, calculate how much you deserve, and obtain that amount on your behalf. The legal professional will work as your advocate with insurance companies, which are more likely to settle for higher amounts when an attorney is involved than when a victim goes it alone.

Also, if you are approached with a settlement, you will want to speak with an attorney to make sure that settlement is fair. Even an amount that seems like a good settlement could be much lower than you deserve – and an experienced attorney can help you see that.

Your Injuries Could Worsen Over Time

The most important reason for hiring an attorney is that even minor injuries can worsen over time. Whiplash, for example, can take several days to fully manifest, and you may eventually notice that the pain becomes unbearable, or you are unable to work as you once did. If you accept a settlement, you will not be able to seek compensation when your injuries worsen. These are all aspects that an attorney can help you assess.

Additional complications can also arise from seemingly minor injuries. What you think is a bruise could actually be internal bleeding, or the headaches you have been suffering may be the first sign of a traumatic brain injury. Regardless, even if your injuries seem minor, you need to speak with an attorney, since he or she will protect your best interest – not the insurance company’s bottom line.
