Reason to call an attorney after a car wreck

You've just been in a bad car wreck and you aren't sure what to do next. Well, you certainly aren't alone! There are roughly 6 million car accidents every year in the United States -- and roughly 2 million victims will end up with permanent injuries.

In the immediate aftermath of the accident, you may not have any way of knowing how badly you're hurt. So here are some reasons to consider calling a car accident attorney right away:

1. You need the support

The police officers, emergency medical technicians and hospital workers may all help you in the short-term, but it takes someone with experience to understand the burdens you may face as you head down the long path of recovery.

2. You need someone to gather evidence

You may know that the police report regarding your accident is important -- but an experienced attorney knows that it's also important to gather information from first responders, witnesses on the scene and passengers. Photos need to be taken of the wreckage and the scene, and video evidence may need to be preserved to prevent it from being erased. You can't gather all of these things from your hospital bed without help.

3. You need someone who understands the value of your claim

You cannot expect the insurance company to offer you the full value of your injuries and losses without a fight. The insurance company will look for every possible way they can to devalue a claim, and you probably don't know precisely how to put a dollar amount on your pain and suffering. If you have permanent injuries, you may need access to financial experts and others in order to predict your future losses.

4. You need someone to handle the insurance company

It's wise to keep a buffer between you and the insurance company's adjuster. Adjusters have a lot of tricks up their sleeves when it comes to discouraging people from pursuing a claim with any kind of aggression -- even when it's warranted.

If you've been in a car accident and you're seriously injured, continue contacting our office to discuss your situation.
