Three reasons why you need to hire an attorney, even for a basic rear-end auto accident.

If you get into an accident, don’t make the mistake of trying to handle your claim on your own.  Injury claims have evolved into a complex legal situation that needs to be taken seriously.  Injury claims can possibly affect the rest of your life, depending on the severity of your injury.  It is important that you get the full value of your claim.

1.You need an advocate.  Insurance companies are a for-profit organization, thus they will act in the interest of the insurance company.  Their main incentive is to make a profit and each insurance company has policies in place specifically for the company to make a profit.  Same as in poker, the house always wins.  The insurance company will profit no matter what.  Each auto accident victim needs a representative to fight powerful insurance companies.

  1. Filing an insurance claim is complex. There are many laws, rules and regulations that are related to filing an injury claim. If you have been injured in an auto accident, you need to be knowledgeable about the legal issues involved, especially statute of limitations or other legalities that may prevent you from getting the full value of your claim.  Each auto accident victim needs an experienced representative to sift through the complexities of an auto accident injury claim.
  2. Proving your case. You will have to provide proof or evidence to show liability of the Defendant and your resulting injuries. Your injury claim will ultimately be determined by the amount of damages that you have sustained, physically, emotionally, and any loss of compensation, due to the auto accident that you were involved in. Each auto accident victim needs an experienced representative to make their case.
