Whether or not to hire a personal injury attorney for an automobile accident case is one of the most common questions most personal injury attorneys receive from prospective clients. For many accident victims, the insurance companies involved offer a settlement right away, so they may wonder why they should bother hiring an attorney when money is readily available without an attorney.
There are a number of reasons you should hire a personal injury attorney. First, an experienced attorney can help you calculate a fair value of your case. Attorneys know what types of damages to which you are entitled, and what you can expect to get from your case in court. In addition, an attorney can help build a strong case to prove the damages to which you are entitled.
An experienced attorney can help you evaluate any settlement offer that you may have received to determine if it was fair. Also, your attorney can help serve as a buffer between you and the insurance company. Insurance companies have an interest in minimizing the amount that you receive, and have a number of tactics they commonly use to try to avoid paying you. An attorney can help prevent that.
Finally, if you have been injured in an automobile accident, it’s likely that you are not feeling well and you may have been emotionally damaged, as well as physically injured. You need to be able to focus on your recovery, and leave your case in your attorney’s hands.
