What Does a Car Accident Lawyer Do?

A car accident is a traumatic event that often results in injury and vehicle damage or loss. According to the latest statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are 3.4 million emergency department visits annually due to injuries from motor vehicle crashes.

If you are hurt in an auto accident, it is essential to know your rights. A car accident lawyer reviews the facts and consults with you about how to proceed. These are important ways an attorney helps you after an accident.

Provides Legal Advice

People injured in auto accidents may not know where to turn for help. It is important to speak with a car accident lawyer right away to have legal protection throughout the claims process. There are many decisions to make after an accident occurs. An attorney walks you through each step of filing a claim, so you don’t have to manage important decisions alone.

Attorneys inform you of your legal rights and options. They advise you on how to proceed based on the available facts. Some claims can be negotiated with an insurance company for a fair settlement. Sometimes, it is necessary to move forward with a personal injury lawsuit. Personal injury cases can be complex, and you will need an experienced attorney to litigate your case and provide sound legal advice.

Reviews Your Rights

It is imperative that you understand your rights under the law when involved in a car accident. During a consultation, a lawyer covers laws pertinent to your case. One important aspect of auto accident law is deciding who is at fault.

Determining liability in a car accident can be tricky. In some instances, liability is clear-cut when a driver is ticketed at the scene. In other situations, a case may go to arbitration or court. A lawyer keeps you informed of your rights throughout these proceedings.

Negotiates With Insurance Companies

Typically, you are contacted by insurance companies that offer a quick settlement. People who try to negotiate with insurance companies directly often become overwhelmed by the process. Insurance companies want to settle as quickly as possible with the least amount of compensation.

You may incur a lot of bills from your accident and have ongoing medical needs. You need an attorney who works aggressively to defend your rights with insurers.

Builds Your Case

Building a solid legal case is essential for the best outcome. Attorneys are methodical about gathering information that meets the criteria of auto accident and personal injury law. Here are ways they work for you:

  • Collect evidence regarding fault and liability in an accident
  • Negotiate with insurance companies
  • Organize paperwork related to your case (medical bills, insurance forms, legal filings, requests for information)
  • Coordinate with private investigators to gather facts
  • Bring in expert witnesses to support findings
  • Gather medical records from healthcare providers
  • Keep you informed of ongoing developments
  • Discuss the details of settlement offers

A tremendous amount of time and effort goes into proving an auto accident claim. Your attorney knows the law and how to negotiate the terms of a fair settlement.

Represents You in Court

Your attorney may need to file a personal injury lawsuit to collect your rightful compensation. A court case can be a long and arduous journey. Court proceedings where serious injury is involved frequently require many negotiations and motions outside the courtroom.

Experienced car accident attorneys know how to litigate these cases and relieve the burden on their clients. If you are injured and recovering, having an attorney guide you through a lawsuit is an enormous relief knowing your interests are protected.

Gets You Fair Compensation

According to the most recent data by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 94% of accidents are caused by driver actions. Getting fair compensation is a primary concern when you are hurt due to someone’s negligence. Whether your case is decided in or out of court, you need help navigating the settlement process. 

Your lawyer understands all the factors that go into getting a fair settlement, such as medical expenses (current and future), wage losses, vehicle damage or loss and pain and suffering. These issues are all considered in conjunction with car accident laws and personal injury lawsuits.
