If you have been in a car crash, you are probably focused on healing. You are probably not focused on hiring a personal injury attorney.
However, if you have been in a car crash, hiring an attorney could be just as important as resting and recovering.
Afterall, insurance companies use attorneys – why shouldn’t you?
If you are recovering from a crash, here are three reasons you need a personal injury attorney. Read on:
You were seriously injured
If you were seriously injured in the car crash, meaning you have broken bones, a head injury or more, you need an attorney. He or she can help you get the compensation you deserve: For medical bills, lost wages and other necessities.
You need someone on your side to communicate and negotiate with insurance companies so you can simply focus on recovering and getting back to your active life.
You weren’t at fault
If you weren’t at fault in the accident, great. However, you probably are now faced with getting your car fixed or replaced and healing from your injuries. You might also find you are faced with whether to sue the at-fault driver. A good personal injury attorney can explain the process to you and make sure you get the compensation you deserve – in a timely manner.
You WERE at fault
If you were the at-fault driver, you may need a personal injury attorney if you did not have insurance coverage! You could face legal action that could bankrupt you, and navigating the legal system alone is never a good idea. Your lawyer will help you understand the process and represent you if there should be a trial.
