Should I Hire an Attorney for an Accident That Wasn’t My Fault?

Why Hiring an Attorney May Be the Most Important Decision You Make 

California is an at-fault insurance state, meaning that you can pursue a claim for damages against a party that caused your injuries. However, it can be challenging to get the compensation you deserve without the help of an attorney. It is always in your best interest to consult with an attorney before accepting a settlement or making any statements to the insurance company.

5 Reasons You Should Hire an Attorney After an Accident:

  1. An Attorney Knows the Law

Legally, you are not required to hire an attorney to represent you after an accident, but it is usually a good idea. A personal injury attorney will know the law and will help walk you through the legal process. 

Accident and injury claims can be complicated. An attorney helps to ensure that you receive a full and fair settlement. If a favorable outcome cannot be reached during negotiations, an attorney will set the matter for trial to ensure that you receive the largest recovery possible.

  1. You Won’t Settle for Less

Insurance companies routinely try to downplay accident claims. They may try to put you at fault for the accident or argue that your injuries were not severe. An attorney can help make sure that you do not end up settling for less than your case is worth.

  1. You Pay Nothing Unless They Win

Personal injury attorneys generally accept cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning there are no fees unless they win. Therefore, you can hire an attorney to represent you regardless of whether you are in a stable financial situation. 

  1. Your Rights Will Be Protected

One of the most important reasons to hire an attorney is that your rights will be protected. An attorney will follow all statutory timelines to ensure that your claim is not denied or dismissed. They will work with you to collect the evidence necessary to prove your case and will ensure that your rights are not violated throughout the process.

  1. You’ll Get the Care You Need

Finally, working with an attorney can help make sure that you get the medical care and treatment you need to fully recover. Without the help of an attorney, you might end up settling for less than your case is worth. This means that the compensation you receive may not cover all of your accident-related medical expenses such as rehabilitation. 

Injury victims often end up leaving treatment early if they cannot afford to continue. An attorney will work tirelessly to ensure that you receive compensation to cover all of your losses and future expenses.
