Why You Should Hire an Attorney for Your Car Accident Case

Being involved in a car accident tends to be a complex, frustrating, and muddy process. Luckily, you don’t have to handle it alone. Read on to learn why it’s in your best interest to hire an attorney to help with your car accident case.

A Skilled Attorney Can Make All The Difference

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, you may feel confused, agitated, and hopeless. However, a skilled attorney can help make the process a lot easier for you.

An experienced car accident attorney has the legal knowledge and resources you need on your side.

Insurance Companies are Shady

When you call the insurance company to file a claim for your car accident, you’ll most likely be greeted with a warm and inviting tone from the representative on the other line.

Don’t fall for it.

This is a shady tactic insurance companies use to try and garner your trust so that they can exploit you later on.

Skilled attorneys know all about these unethical strategies and have methods to maneuver around them.

Did you know that it’s possible to have your attorney talk to the insurance company for you? That way, you don’t make any statements that could inadvertently hurt your claim later on. You see, your statements to the insurance company are legally binding, but the claims your lawyer makes are not held to the same legal regard.

Additionally, you’re allowed to make your statement to the insurance company in writing, if you so choose. That way, your attorney can help you prepare your written statement and you don’t run the risk of saying anything that can be blown out of proportion later on.

If you insist on speaking with the insurance company yourself to provide a statement, it’s a good idea to record your conversations. Insurance company representatives have an interesting way of forgetting the things they say but can remember every word that comes out of your mouth.
