Should I Hire an Attorney for My Car Accident?
Should I Hire an Attorney for My Car Accident?

Just after a car accident, your goal will be to seek compensation for your damage and any bodily injury you may have suffered. Should you hire an attorney or just let the insurance company handle it?


By the end of this article, you should have a better idea of whether you should hire an attorney for your car accident.


What Type of Accident Did You Have?

If more than one car was involved in your accident and the other driver was at fault in your crash, you need to file a claim with his or her auto insurance provider. The compensation for your no-fault accident should come from their liability coverage. Insurance companies equate payments for liability coverage as losses and thus have an interest in paying the minimum to rectify the problem.


The faulty driver’s insurance adjuster will be looking to pay as little as possible or deny your claim altogether.


Receive Full Compensation from the Insurance Company

Two common tactics insurance companies use is offering a quick settlement and using your statements against you. The insurer may contact you shortly after the accident when you are dealing with the recent shock of the accident. You may feel overwhelmed at the time which can lead to mistaken decisions or statements.


The insurer may take advantage of this difficult period by offering you a quick settlement. The stress of vehicle damage, medical bills and loss of wages add to the allure of the quick cash. However, this offer may be much less than what your claim is worth.
