Robert Koenig, Esq.
The Accident Attorneys Group
If you’ve just been involved in an auto accident, hiring an attorney may be the last thing on your mind. You may be injured and left without a vehicle, wondering how you’re going to pay for the repairs and medical bills. Even when you’re not at fault, an accident can result in increased insurance premiums and criminal penalties. The good news is that you don’t have to go through this alone. Depending on your circumstances, it may be time to hire an auto accident attorney.
The aftermath of an auto accident can be a difficult time as you’re dealing with emotional stress and painful physical injuries, making it difficult to focus on the important aspects of your case. Your attorney will offer objective advice and help you determine the right course of action.
Insurance claims can seem like a never-ending maze of paperwork, documentation and deadlines. An attorney can help you deal with your insurance claims and make sure that everything is in order. The insurance company’s goal is to offer you the smallest payment possible to resolve your claim. Your attorney, unlike the insurance company is on your side, and has every reason to get you the biggest payment possible because they get paid when you get paid. If your case is strong, your attorney may accept it on a contingency basis, which means that you pay nothing upfront and they are paid a fixed percentage of the settlement you receive from insurance. Your attorney will work hard to get you the best settlement available. In the event that your insurer is unwilling to settle, it may be necessary to file a lawsuit. While it is possible to file a small claim on your own, you’re more likely to get positive results with legal representation. Your attorney will file court documents, organize the evidence, and appear in court on your behalf.
Once you’ve decided to hire an auto accident attorney, there are some important things to consider. First, it’s important to choose an attorney who is experienced in auto accident claims. The attorney with television commercials and catchy jingle may not be the best choice. Ask friends for referrals and ask the attorney about their trial and settlement record. Experienced attorneys know the system and the best way to negotiate with insurance companies to get you the best possible settlement.
Once you’ve decided to hire an auto accident attorney, it’s important to act right away. If you wait to hire an attorney for your case you risk missing the statute of limitations and losing valuable evidence and witnesses.
