When is a Car Accident Attorney Absolutely Necessary For Your Claim?

After an accident, you might be suffering from injuries but wonder what options you have. The question that many people tend to ask is: "When do I need to have an attorney on my side to help me get results?" Some people might assume that it is safe to get started on their case immediately without realizing that insurance companies often have teams of lawyers and adjusters on their side that can and will attempt to build a case against you so that they don't have to pay out to their highest ability.

The primary goal of the insurance company is to save money and force them to run up costs. This is why, if you have been injured in a severe accident, you don't want to handle your case yourself. An attorney will typically tell you that if your injuries are more than minor, you should turn to an attorney without hesitation.

Aspects That Make an Attorney Necessary

Severe Injuries Present: The extent and severity of your injuries dictates if you need an attorney. If your injuries were just minor or worth very little, you might not have to turn to an attorney in your time of need. However, if they are more severe, it is a good idea to have an attorney backing up your rights. The severity of your injuries is dependent on many aspects, such as the type of injury, the length of time a doctor has determined it will take for you to recover, or the cost of your medical bills.

Long-Term Injuries: A long-term injury is one that lasts for a year or longer. If you have sustained a long-term injury or one your doctor has deemed permanent, it could seriously affect you for the rest of your life. You will have to consult with medical professionals on your side who can help make these determinations.

Disputed Liability: What if an insurance company investigates and is disputing liability and believes that the other party is not at fault? However, you know differently, and so you need an attorney backing up this information and proving your claim. This is one more reason to turn to a knowledgeable attorney in your time of need.

Refusal to Pay: Perhaps the insurance company in your case refuses to make any offer at all, or they have offered way less than what you deserve when it comes to your situation. When you believe the insurance company is not being fair to you, you should have an attorney on your side.

Every case differs from the next and involves unique situations. If you are feeling a bit lost when it comes to your case and don't know where to turn, or you have been having issues or questions regarding liability, it is essential to speak to an attorney.
