I've been in a wreck, do I need a lawyer?


If you have been seriously injured in a car accident, then it is highly recommended that you talk to an attorney. If you personally have not won a lawsuit against an insurance company before, they’re simply not worried about you filing a lawsuit. They have no reason to fairly negotiate with someone who will not beat them in court. When you’re represented by an experienced attorney, they take your claim much more seriously.
Not only is this period stressful, but it’s also emotionally draining. Unwittingly, motorists can give incriminating statements, incorrectly assume a degree of guilt, and fail to provide evidence all at the prodding of an opposing insurance agent. Insurance agents are in business of saving their employer money. They actively discourage court proceedings and will attempt to settle out of court for a fraction of what you’re owed before you have time to speak with a lawyer. When your livelihood is on the line, you simply cannot handle an injury case by yourself. You will be taken advantage of.

Legal experience is irreplaceable.

There are a million reasons why you need a lawyer if you’ve been injured in a car accident, but the most important is that we do this every day. We know how to work with the insurance companies, and we know how to get our clients the cash they truly deserve. If you were to try and negotiate a settlement yourself, trust when I say that you will not get a fair settlement offer. These adjusters use a thousand tricks to get you to settle quickly and cheaply, and again, they’re simply not afraid of your threats to bring a lawsuit.
Do you know how to file a Stowers demand? How about responding to a list of admissions? Do you know the procedures of getting evidence accepted into court? There are certain steps that need to be followed by anyone looking to bring a case to court. If you decide to go ahead and do it without a lawyer, your case might get thrown out simply because you lacked certain things that needed to be done before bringing it in front of a judge – and you only get one chance to bring your lawsuit.
The law is extremely complex. Lawyers, just like doctors, must go through years of additional schooling to learn the intricacies of law (not to mention learning specific case law and attending ongoing education). Surely you don’t believe that you can successfully handle a lawsuit. I mean, you wouldn’t try to perform surgery on yourself would you?

Proving liability.

A lawyer can be very helpful when it comes to proving liability. A favorable police report is not all you need to win your case (and oftentimes police reports are inadmissable due to the officer’s limited knowledge about liability law). You need an attorney who understand the intricacies of the law so that they can prove by a preponderance of evidence that the accident wasn’t your fault. A lawyer can provide references to cases as well as statutes and citations which will all contribute to you proving your case.
