Unfortunately, car accidents happen, and chances are they’ll happen to you one day. But how do you know if your car accident claim can be handled on your own or if you need to get a lawyer involved? Here are some instances when calling a lawyer can save you money and make sure you are getting a fair deal:
Disagreement on fault
If the other driver isn’t admitting fault and/or if the car accident happened in such a way that it is initially unclear who was at fault, it is worth your time to contact a lawyer. An auto accident lawyer will help you build your case so you don’t end up owing thousands of dollars for an accident that wasn’t your fault.
High out-of-pocket costs
Sometimes it’s worth it to just pay the out-of-pocket costs connected to your accident and move on with your life. But when those costs start skyrocketing past a point that you can actually pay, it’s time to call a lawyer who can work to reduce the out-of-pocket costs associated with the accident including medical bills, loss if income for time off work, and increased car insurance premiums.
It is crucial to call a lawyer as soon as possible anytime you or your passengers are injured in a car accident. This is especially true for large claims that are the result of a serious injury that has limited your mobility and/or caused you permanent damage and pain. Even if you aren’t sure whether or not your injury will result in a big claim, call a lawyer for a free consultation to go over your options. Our auto accident attorneys will make a visit to any home or hospital to discuss your accident and talk to you about what legal action should be taken.
