There are a number of reasons why calling a lawyer after a serious car accident is a good idea, the most important of which is that, on average, a lawyer will get you more money than if you go it alone. However, there are a couple other important reasons why you should call a lawyer that you may not have considered.
You need to focus on your recovery. Have you ever tried to do something important while being distracted by something else? We all have. Handling your own injury claim can be all consuming. From filing deadlines to constant battles with the insurance company, you’ll be spending the majority of your time defending your right to compensation if you try to go it alone. Hiring a lawyer to handle your injury claim for you will free you up to focus on what’s most important: getting better.
You need to get every dollar you deserve. The biggest risk of handling your own injury claim is leaving money on the table. That’s money you’re going to need to pay medical bills, offset lost wages, and more. Determining what this accident is going to cost you on your own is very difficult. You need an experienced lawyer who can estimate not only your current expenses, but future expenses as well, to ensure you don’t run into a financial nightmare later on.
