If you are injured in an accident caused by someone’s negligence, you not only have to focus on healing but on dealing with the insurance company. Depending upon the severity of your injury, seeking compensation may be the only way you can recover financially. Here’s why talking to an attorney first can help you do this with less stress.

Attorneys have experience dealing with the insurance company

Personal injury attorneys know what it takes to talk with insurance companies. Your emotions will probably be running high in the days and weeks after the accident. This can cause you to be confused or say things that can be misconstrued as you admitting fault. Attorneys know exactly how insurance companies will try to work against you and how to fight for you.

Personal injury attorneys understand evidence

The most important thing for you to focus on after an accident is healing and recovery. If you do not work with an attorney, you must become familiar with the laws in your area as well as everything it takes to make a claim or lawsuit. Here are some pieces of evidence that you and your attorney will need to file a solid claim.

  • Witness statements
  • Photographic evidence
  • Medical records regarding your injuries from the accident
  • A statement from you about the accident
  • Information about lost wages

You won’t have to learn the laws

If you file a claim on your own, it would be best to understand all of the laws that could affect your case. But, this is difficult, especially if you have been seriously injured. A personal injury attorney already understands the relevant laws in your area. They also know how to deal with the insurance company when they try to use the laws against you.

The timing of your claim can be better

Working with a personal injury attorney after your accident means that you will not have to wait too long to get your claim going. These professionals understand that you need compensation as soon as possible, but also that gathering evidence takes time. They know that if a settlement is offered too quickly, it could be too little and mean the insurance company is not taking you seriously.

Personal injury attorneys can get better settlement offers

When you speak with an insurance adjuster, they may see you as just another person trying to get money from their company. It is their job to give you as little compensation as possible. If you are not prepared with the right knowledge and mindset, they may succeed at this. A personal injury attorney, on the other hand, has the experience and knowledge to get the compensation you deserve. Insurance companies don’t want you to work with an attorney because they are tough and will not settle for less.
