After you have been injured in a car accident, there are several reasons why one of your first actions should be to contact a New York car accident lawyer. Your ability to get all of the medical treatment you need to recover, as well as to get full compensation for all damages, will in large part depend on the skills employed in negotiating a settlement. Read the five top reasons for hiring a lawyer if you or a loved one has been injured by the actions of a negligent driver:
Your lawyer will take care of all the legal issues while you focus on recovering your health. There are many issues to resolve, including addressing the property damage to your vehicle; negotiating a fair level of compensation for you; ensuring that you get compensation for all of your medical costs; coordinating all the benefits you are due from the insurance company of the negligent party, as well as your own insurance policies; engaging in a full investigation into the accident with the help of independent investigators when necessary; valuing non-economic damages such as pain and suffering; managing issues about your medical records for you; ensuring you get fair compensation if the injuries caused you permanent damage; consulting with financial experts and others in valuing your claim; and other critical issues.
If the insurance company does not make a fair offer within a reasonable period of time, your lawyer can file a lawsuit to seek justice through the civil court system. This puts pressure on the insurance company, and often leads to a fair settlement offer prior to trial.
Don’t take any chances if you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a car accident. Get legal help to manage the entire process, and to protect your right to the compensation you deserve. Ensure that you are protected by a highly skilled New York car accident attorney. Your final settlement or a jury award will be the result of the hard work and dedication of your legal representation.
