4 Reasons to Work With a Lawyer After a Nueces County Car Accident

Posted on in Car Accidents

Texas car crash lawyerThe time period after a car accident can be very stressful. Trying to handle a claim yourself while you are injured will only add to your stress - and it could lead to a reduced award. You probably do not get injured in car accidents very often, so the process of recovering damages might be foreign to you. Even trying to add up the amount of money you have lost as a result of the accident can become complicated. When you have been hurt in a car accident, working with an attorney can take a lot off your plate. It can also help you make sure that the amount of compensation you demand will actually cover all your expenses and losses. The sooner you make a call to a lawyer, the better. Ideally, you should call the same day as the accident. 

How Can Working With a Lawyer After a Car Crash Injury Help Me?

When you have been injured, the last thing you want to be doing is handling the claims process without assistance. Here are some ways an attorney can help: 

  • Complete compensation - A common mistake is to settle a car accident claim for an amount that does not fully compensate you for the entire amount of money you are out. You probably know to add up your medical expenses, but there are plenty of other compensable losses to consider. Your attorney can help you figure out how to factor in things like lost wages, future medical expenses, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. 
  • Experience - Car insurance companies are notorious for trying to take advantage of people who are not represented and do not have experience with car accident claims. They may do things like making a lowball offer and calling it “generous” when an experienced lawyer would know better. 
  • Legal knowledge - There are a large number of legal rules about negligence that most people are not aware of. An insurance company may try to intentionally mislead you. For example, they may suggest that you should not get any compensation because the accident was partially your fault. This is not true - you can recover for the portion of the accident that was not your fault. 
  • Even footing - The insurance company you are up against has lawyers. They have experience and expertise. It is hardly fair for you to try to face off against them alone. Having your own attorney levels the playing field.
