If you’ve recently been injured in an automobile accident there’s no time to waste. A personal injury attorney can assist you in the following ways:
Communicate on Your Behalf – After an accident, you’ll be contacted by various parties such as the insurance company, auto repair shop, and healthcare providers. When you work with a personal injury attorney, they can take some of the burdens off your hands by speaking with the insurance company in particular. This leaves you more time to focus on your health and managing your family’s transportation arrangements and so forth.
Determine Damages Owed to You – Most people don’t know the full scope of what they can collect after an automobile accident. Depending on the severity, the types of compensation you may receive include: Current medical expenses, future medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, pain & suffering, mental anguish, and loss of consortium. Depending on the specifics, an attorney may be able to identify wrongful death damages as well. Wrongful death claims require the family to prove the same facts as the deceased, had they survived and pursued a claim on their own.
Offer Advice and Explain Your Options – The main mistake people make after an automobile accident is not fully understanding their situation and the options they have for compensation. Often, people attempt to handle matters on their own, resulting in missed opportunities to receive damages in full. The sooner after an accident you speak with an experienced personal injury attorney, the more likely it is they’ll be able to collect key evidence to help get the compensation you deserve. They know the questions to ask and the information to gather and will present you with options to consider.
