Car accidents are very common and happen every day. Thousands of vehicles are involved in accidents every single day. From minor fender benders to major injury-causing accidents, vehicle mishaps can often be complicated for all the parties involved. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, around 16,000 car accidents happen every day in the U.S.
The following scenarios may make you want to consider hiring a personal injury attorney.
Almost everyone has their vehicles insured (for those who don’t, learn more about car accidents with no insurance), but not many know the nitty-gritty of the policy. Unfortunately, you only get to use the policy in case of an accident, so if you get into your first crash, the terms and conditions of the policy may surprise and shock you. If you aren’t well versed in technical and legal jargon, you certainly won’t be on equal footing with your insurance company. In this case, hiring an attorney is a good decision. The attorney will not only explain all the terms and conditions of the insurance policy but also help you through this difficult ordeal.
A car accident will frequently involve the police, regardless of how minor or major the damage was. Unfortunately, laws vary from one state to another, and not many people are familiar with them. An attorney will be of great benefit helping you understand the rules and regulations where you live and to help you successfully navigate the accident process.
Insurance companies are in the business of making money. Like most businesses, they don’t want to pay a cent more than they have to pay. If you feel like the insurance company has mistreated you in any way or has underpaid certain expenses or car repairs, then hiring an attorney may be a great idea.
