Why You Need a Car Accident Attorney
After your car wreck, you may receive a settlement offer from the insurance company. However, this offer will likely be less than what you need. The insurance company knows you are likely in need of the money and will take just about any offer they send. But once you accept it, you forfeit your right to seek greater compensation.
But do you actually know how much compensation you may be owed? Sure, you can calculate your medical bills and other expenses. But what about compensation for pain and suffering? Or physical disfigurement? Without the help of a Town ‘N’ Country car accident lawyer, you may be asking for way too much — or way too little.
What’s more, an experienced car accident lawyer knows how to negotiate with the insurance company to get the compensation you deserve outside of court, so you get money faster. If you try to represent yourself, the insurance company likely won’t take you seriously and will instead take their chances in court.
Of course, once you get to court, trying to actually argue your case is extremely difficult if you don’t know what you’re doing. Sure, you can read all the laws and precedents that are related to your case. But you may have no idea how the courtroom actually works — because TV and movies usually get it wrong. The judge won’t appreciate you representing yourself since you won’t know the procedure of the court.
What’s more, the lawyer representing the insurance company can use any number of tactics to make sure you don’t get paid. They might make arguments that a lawyer would object to, but you may have no idea that you’re supposed to object. In the end, it’s always better to hire a Town ‘N’ Country car accident lawyer to represent you.
