Ways an Attorney is Useful After a Car Accident
Sustaining an injury during a car accident usually brings with it lots of questions that aren’t always very easy to find the answers to. How will the at-fault driver be decided? Will any portion of your medical bills be covered if you were the one at fault? Are you able to collect financial compensation for pain and suffering if you weren’t? These questions and other questions like them are all able to be answered by a qualified car accident attorney. Because of the complex quality of accidents where injuries were involved and the challenges involved with attempting to recover your damages from the insurance company, it is always in your best interest to have a educated, experienced attorney from the Los Angeles Injury Group in your corner to fight for your personal rights and to ensure that you get all the financial compensation to which California law entitles you.
Have Knowledge of All Applicable Laws
When you hire a personal injury attorney you are employing a professional to work for you. A good personal injury attorney will bring with them complete knowledge of all procedural laws and guidelines, as well as any relevant laws that might affect your case in any way. A personal injury attorney will be responsible for seeing to it that you are aware of any time limits that apply to your case. They will also be able to file a lawsuit on your behalf and will professionally manage any doubts or questions that might be voiced by your opposition. Once the proceedings have begun, your personal injury attorney will also be the one who will prepare your case for trial in the event that you are unable to settle out of court. Usually, the simple threat of legal action gives you enough clout when it comes to settlement agreements. A trial is not always needed. Finally, the insurance carrier will have a team of investigators and attorneys on its side, prepared to take on any case that comes their way. If you want to have a positive conclusion to your personal injury case then you are going to require legal representation on your side as well.
They Do the Running Around
Hammering out a settlement with the insurance company is a slow and tedious process. If you have just been hurt in a car accident, then taking on a task of this size is probably not on your list of Things To Do. You need ample time to rest and recuperate. Plus, instead of having someone (read: you) who is inexperienced with the twists and turns of filing a claim, you will have a diligent personal injury attorney fighting for you, one who has had past experience with various insurance companies and multiple types of insurance claims. They have the knowledge when it comes to collecting police reports, medical records, bills, and witness accounts. Your personal injury attorney will also handle the writing of a settlement demand letter and filing the appropriate paperwork to start your court case. Basically, your attorney is there to make your life a little easier.
