Do You Need a Lawyer After You Were Hurt in An Accident?

If you were hurt in an accident, you should at the very least speak with a personal injury lawyer. There are so many ways a lawyer can help with your case and allow you to focus on getting better. An experienced personal injury attorney will initially discuss the case with the other driver’s insurer. They will obtain all the evidence necessary to prove the case which will include getting and organizing your medical records and bills. An attorney will negotiate with both the health insurance carrier and the other person’s insurance company to globally resolve all the  claims. They will confer with doctors to make sure they get all the medical information necessary to prove  the damages in the case. Finally, they will go to court and fight to obtain compensation for the damages. Car accidents can result in very serious injuries that can be permanent. For that reason it is important to receive total and complete compensation. An experienced personal injury attorney will assist in navigating the legal system to insure fair recovery for all the damages suffered in the accident.

The following is a list of injuries resulting from a car accident:

  • Whiplash
  • Broken bones
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Internal injuries
  • Burns and lacerations
  • Pain and suffering
  • Death

If you are fault free in a car accident in fault based States, you are entitled to compensation for your damages. This can include medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. The amount of compensation you receive will depend on the facts and circumstances surrounding the accident and whether you enter a negotiated settlement or litigation. Recovery through negotiated settlement is meant to cover losses and put you back to pre-crash status. The settlement value will take into account the past and future medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and property damage.

What Should You Do After You Were Hurt in An Accident?

If you are in an accident it is imperative that you speak with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. You want to preserve evidence and avoid missed deadlines. A skilled attorney  will greatly benefit from this evidence if needed later on in the case. An accident is time-sensitive. As such, the sooner you have an attorney in place, the sooner they can begin the process to resolution. Most states place a time limit on how long you have to file your case. Some insurance policies may require immediate notification of the accident.

When you are in a car accident, the most asked question is how will I get my medical bills covered? The first step is to confirm your health insurance coverage. This is generally provided through your work. If covered, have the health care provider submit their bill to your health insurance company. This way you will  get your medical  bills paid to prevent collection activities from occuring while you go through the legal process. If you don’t have health insurance, then look to your own automobile insurance policy for medical payments. That coverage will reimburse your medical bills up to the limits in the policy. If none, then you can send out a protection letter. If there is a recovery, you promise in the letter  to reimburse the health care provider out of the settlement.

A second common concern is understanding the  legal process for recovery. When you are in an accident and hurt, you are most vulnerable for being taken advantage of by the insurance company. Retaining an experienced car accident attorney protects you from the insurance company. They will explain the legal process and obtain all the necessary information and documents  in your case. They will then send all that to the adjuster and negotiate the settlement on your behalf. If unable to settle the case, they will fight for your rights in a lawsuit.
