Why You Need a Lawyer After a Car Accident

When you’re hurt in a car accident, you may first think you don’t need a lawyer’s help, but that may be a big mistake. The insurance company may not be willing to help, and without legal aid, you may have trouble proving you’re due compensation. 

The Kindley Firm, APC is here to help you recover when you’ve been hurt in a car accident. Reach out to our lawyers to learn more about your options after a car accident and how your lawyer can help. 

Answers from the Insurance Company

If you’ve been in an accident and suffered injuries, you may need to take legal action regarding your claim. Lawyers have the experience to help you get financial compensation to cover expenses like medical care, vehicle repairs, and lost wages if you’re unable to work.

If you’re in an accident, you may already have tried to handle the insurance company on your own. Sadly, you found the insurer is lowballing you, ignoring you, or taking advantage of your lack of practical knowledge about the law. When this happens, it’s time to get legal representation. 

Lawyers have practical knowledge and information about how much your case is worth. Your attorney will be able to negotiate on your behalf and help you increase how much money comes out of this situation into your pocket. That’s a massive aid when getting compensated by insurance companies and dealing with insurance adjusters. 

Adjusters work for insurance companies, and their job is to save money for the insurer. An adjuster may be willing to negotiate with your lawyer so that you get a fair settlement and don’t have to go through a lawsuit. 

Avoiding Liability After a Car Accident

If they negotiate but there’s no agreement reached, your lawyer will represent you in court and seek more money than the insurance company would otherwise offer you. This includes preparing legal documents such as motions and briefs, as well as arguing points of law before a judge or jury.

If there’s any argument about who caused the crash, lawyers will help you avoid liability so you don’t have to pay for any accident that wasn’t your fault. They may do any or all the following: 

  • Identifying all involved drivers
  • Gathering evidence from witnesses, other drivers, and the police report
  • Preparing expert witness testimony or car accident reconstruction to prove your case
  • Photos or security footage from the crash
