Why Do I Need to Contact an Attorney After a Car Accident?

Understanding What Motivates Insurance Companies

After a car accident, you could be facing serious injuries that will lead to substantial medical bills, time away from work, lost wages and a lengthy recovery period that may include months of rehabilitation. You may also be looking at thousands of dollars in damage to, or the total loss of, your car. While it would be reasonable to expect that the other driver's insurance company would simply admit liability of your losses and reimburse you, that's not usually how it goes.

Insurance companies don't make money when they pay the actual value of a claim. They make money when they are able to settle claims for as little as possible or avoid paying them completely. The truth is that insurance companies don't care about your long-term well-being. They care about their own bottom lines and nothing else. They will approach you with a lowball settlement offer and make it sound like they went above and beyond the call of duty to get it.

Don't Go Into Battle Alone

The insurance companies have teams of lawyers whose only job is to defeat your claim. In some cases, that means putting the blame on you for an accident that you did not cause. By having an experienced attorney on your side from the start, you can feel confident that you have done everything in your power to ensure that your rights are protected.
