Four Signs You Need An Attorney After An Auto Accident

When you’ve been injured in an auto accident, you have a tough road ahead. First, you have to focus on your health and healing from your injuries. Then you have to deal with the financial stress of piling medical bills and oftentimes, being out of work. You’ll also have to fight with the insurance companies who are trying to get out of paying you by burying you in paperwork and bureaucratic rules. Finally, you have to repair or replace your damaged vehicle. This all can be very challenging to deal with, but fortunately, you are not alone. An auto accident attorney can help you at every step of the way. Here are four signs you should call an attorney after your accident.

Your Injuries Are Catastrophic

Vehicles are incredibly heavy and we drive very fast. Oftentimes, this leads to a force of impact that can cause catastrophic injuries. Catastrophic injuries are injuries that are so severe they keep you from leading your normal life. This can include everything from broken limbs to organ damage to even permanent disabilities like paralysis. Catastrophic injuries are fundamentally life changing and they are very expensive. It is imperative if you’ve had a catastrophic injury as the result of a car accident you speak to an attorney who can help you get your life back on track.

You Feel Overwhelmed

When you’ve been injured the only thing that should be on your mind is healing. Trying to negotiate with insurance companies and filling out all their paperwork when you are injured is too much of a burden. Even if you are healed enough to do so, the paperwork is intentionally difficult and they have a number of arbitrary rules all created to get out of paying fair claims. Both of these scenarios can lead to feelings of being overwhelmed. In these cases, it’s best to work with an attorney who knows how to navigate these complex systems. Further, when you work with an attorney, they will take everything off your plate. You will no longer have to speak with the insurance companies or fill out paperwork, giving you more time to focus on what matters most: Your health.

The Insurance Company Is Lowballing You

When we purchase insurance plans, they seem like the best people to work with in the world that will always be there to protect us. That is until we file a claim. Then we learn the hard way that insurance companies are just out to make money and paying for claims is the opposite of turning a profit. One of the many tactics that insurance companies will use to get out of paying a fair settlement is to lowball you. They do this in the hopes that you are under so much stress and pressure from your injuries and medical bills that you’ll accept any kind of help. Never take that lowball offer. Instead, speak to an auto accident attorney who will fight for the settlement that you are entitled to by law.

The Insurance Company Has Denied Your Claim

Insurance companies will also look for any excuse to deny a claim. They often deny legitimate claims hoping that you’ll just accept their decision as law and shoulder the burden of the expenses yourself. If your claim has been denied, you are not without recourse. An auto accident attorney can help. They will review your claim and find the reason for denial. They will also help you collect the evidence needed to appeal the denial. A good attorney will fight for your right to a claim all the way to court if needed.
