5 Reasons to Get a Lawyer After a Car Accident

Anastopoulo Law Firm

In the aftermath of a car accident, recognizing what needs to be done and doing it in a timely manner can seem difficult. If you filed a claim against the negligence driver’s insurance company and it has been denied, having legal representation is important for a number of different reasons.

1. Understanding Timelines

Did you know that if you intend to file a lawsuit to seek compensation after an injury, there is a statute of limitation that limits how long you have before you can file a claim? Failing to do so within this time frame can result in the forfeiture of your right to file the lawsuit completely. Having a lawyer can help you meet these deadlines.

2. Filing Proper and Accurate Documents

In order to help prepare a case for potential success, you want to ensure that all of the documents and papers you have are accurate. You don’t want to have anything that contradicts previous statements or information as this could be used against you and hurt your chances are securing compensation.

3. Access to Additional Resources

If you attempt to go through the process of holding the negligent party accountable on your own, you could be missing out some important resources such as accident reconstructionists, expert witnesses, and medical experts. A lawyer can help you gain the access you need to have these resources help build your case.

4. Protection from the Insurance Companies

Filing a lawsuit after a car accident means going against the negligent party’s insurance company. As such, you’re going against a large corporation with their own legal team. To best protect your rights, you should have your own legal advocate who can properly prepare and protect from any tactics the defense may try to use against you.

5. Peace of Mind

This is a stressful and often very difficult time for anyone who has been injured due to someone else’s actions. Not knowing what to expect can put a lot of burden on you. Having legal counsel can give you peace of mind that you may not have on your own.
