Why You Should Hire an Attorney After a Car Accident

After you’ve been injured in a car accident, you may think you know what steps you need to take, from seeking medical attention to exchanging information with the other driver(s) involved. However, if you wish to secure the compensation you deserve after accruing damages, you should hire an attorney. A personal injury attorney knows exactly what evidence is needed to support your claim and has the resources to conduct a thorough investigation of your accident. We’re able to collect evidence including medical records, crash reports, eyewitness testimonies, and more – evidence many everyday individuals wouldn’t think to gather.

A personal injury attorney is also able to handle all communication with insurance companies moving forward. Many individuals who communicate directly with insurance companies mistakenly believe the agent is on their side, only to have something they said used against them to deny them compensation. An attorney can serve as your go-between so you only have to focus on healing.

Statute of Limitations

A personal injury lawyer is well-versed on their state’s statute of limitations, which is a law that sets a time limit on how long after an accident a victim can file a personal injury lawsuit. An attorney can work swiftly to move your case forward so you’re able to secure your desired results before it’s too late. In Florida, the statute of limitations for car accidents involving an at-fault driver is four years, meaning victims have four years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit.

Recovering Your Damages

An attorney can fight for your rights to the full amount of compensation you need to recover from your injuries. Injuries can range from minor to serious and include cuts and abrasions, sprains and fractures, broken bones, head and brain trauma, spinal cord and neck injuries, and more, and can be expensive to treat.

Over the years we’ve successfully recovered the following damages for our clients:

  • Medical bills, including ambulance rides, surgeries, hospital stays, prescription medications, physical therapy, and more
  • Lost wages or future income from having to miss or quit work as a result of injuries
  • Property damage, including any costs associated with car repairs or replacements
  • Pain and suffering

When you hire an attorney, you can avoid the stress that comes with trying to understand the complicated legal system on your own. Our lawyer is more than happy to sit down with you and explain your unique situation in a way that makes sense.
