Hiring a Lawyer For Your Car Accident Injury Case

Why hire a car accident lawyer? If you are injured in a car accident, you have one claim and one time to get compensated for your injuries. Many times, people try to handle these claims on their own and many times they can. However, in our experience, insurance companies are out there to collect as much as they can in premiums and pay as little on claims. They are there to pay you as little as possible.

As a lawyer, I have represented hundreds of people on these types of cases. We take cases, we file suit, we put our gravitas and our energy behind your case and zealously advocate for you to get the most that we can for you. And really it is to get you fairly compensated.

I just settled a case for Sharon and Len Cossey. Literally the trucking company in this case had someone at the scene, a lawyer and an investigator, before they were taken away in the ambulance. So, when lawyers and other folks say “hey, you have got to get to us soon because the insurance company is working against you,” it is really true, because they are.

The other things I can help you with and lawyers can help you with is that we can:

  • Help you navigate the different types of insurance that may come into play: the defendants insurance, your insurance, what to do with your medical health insurance,
  • Give you guidance and suggestions on the kind of medical care to get
  • Make sure you are fully compensated, tell you the value of this is
  • What are your wage loss damages worth?
  • What if you have future medical needs?
  • How to deal with Medicare or other insurance issues.

You will find as you navigate yourself through this process that there is a host of legal questions that a person like me can help you answer. And I’ll tell you, I have folks that come to me and if I am not able to help you, if I cannot add value to your case, I’ll say go handle it yourself. I will write a letter for you for free. I’ll help you. I’ll give you guidance. It is only in those cases where I think with my contingency fee that I take –because you don’t have to pay me to hire me, I only get paid at the end of the case—I only take those cases and help those people where I can add value to their case and put more in their pocket than they would get otherwise.

So those are some of the reasons why you should hire a car accident lawyer. I would be happy to visit with you and talk about your case. Thank you.
