Do I Need a Car Accident Attorney?

According to research done by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), there were over 6.75 million car accidents reported to the police in 2019, so the actual number of accidents is certainly higher since not all accidents are reported. It’s a sad fact that even if you are a careful and cautious driver, you can’t control the risky driving habits of those around you. So, what can you do if you are in an accident? And should you hire a car accident attorney?

Is hiring a car accident attorney worth it?

If you’ve been involved in a minor car accident, you may not need to hire a car accident attorney, but it really just depends on the circumstances. If, however, the accident resulted in injury or property damage, a car accident attorney is absolutely worth it. It’s in your best interest to consult an attorney so that you are protected and your physical, mental, and emotional well-being are properly attended to.

How do I know if I have a case?

You don’t need to determine beforehand whether or not you have a case. If the accident resulted in any property damage or personal injury, an attorney can help you determine your next steps and assess whether your injuries are due to the other driver’s negligence. If you contact us with the details, we can advise you about how you should proceed, even if that means telling you that our services aren’t required in your situation.

Won’t the insurance claim cover my costs?

In an ideal world, all of your costs will be covered by your insurance or by the other party’s insurance if they were at fault. But remember that insurance companies may not want to pay for everything you need. Sure, they’ll probably cover the costs of repairing your car, but they may not want to cover your chiropractic care or therapy to deal with any mental trauma you’re experiencing.

What should I do if I’m in a car accident?

While no one wants to think about getting into a car accident, it’s best to be prepared in advance. If you haven’t already thought through who to call and what information to collect, you may find that you’re too rattled after the accident to think of the right things in the moment. So, if possible, be sure to follow the steps we’ve listed in the car accident checklist. There’s no harm in being thorough, so following those steps will make sure you have all the necessary details documented just in case you need them.

How can a car accident attorney help me?

If you’ve been in a car accident, you don’t need to go through it alone. A car accident attorney will advocate for you and your needs, and will work hard to make sure your expenses are covered.
