When you’ve been in an auto accident, you experience a myriad of emotional reactions including shock, anger, sadness, loss and trepidation for the future. If your injuries are severe, you may wonder when you will be able to return to work and how you will care for your family if you’re unable to return quickly. All the while your brain is experiencing all these powerful emotions, it’s impossible to think rationally, let alone research all the legal implications of your accident.
- An attorney will know the personal injury laws in your state. Even if you possess some knowledge of how personal-injury claims work in California, every case is different and laws change all the time. Only an experienced attorney will be able to research your case and get you the compensation you deserve.
- You will no doubt receive a higher settlement with the aid of a personal injury attorney than without. Insurance adjustors have one job: to get you to settle for the least amount possible. A lawyer knows what you’re entitled to and will fight to make sure you get it.
- Most auto accident lawyers in Los Angeles will settle your case out of court, but if you have to go to court, you will need representation. Representing yourself is an option, but you will likely receive less of an award than if you hired an attorney.
You should consider hiring an attorney after any serious accident or if you feel you are not being fairly compensated by an insurance company. And if you’re negotiating without the help of a lawyer, chances are you aren’t getting all that you deserve.
