Car Accident - Why You Need Legal Representation

Being in a car accident can be a frightening experience for you and any passengers in your vehicle. You will have to deal with the immediate shock of the accident, but you may sustain injuries, and your vehicle may sustain serious damage or even be destroyed in the accident. It is in your best interest to have a consultation with a personal injury attorney to determine if you should be represented. An attorney can look at the police reports, talk to witnesses, and look at all the evidence. An experienced lawyer will take into consideration all the medical costs, repairs to your car, wages that are lost, and your emotional suffering.

When you retain the services of a personal injury lawyer after a car accident, your attorney will be able to talk to the other driver involved, and their insurance company or lawyer in an attempt to reach a settlement. If a settlement is not able to be reached, your lawyer can file a lawsuit on your behalf and represent you when you go to court. If you are involved in a motor vehicle accident, you should never try to represent in court. A qualified personal injury lawyer has the experience to represent you and has handled auto accident cases for other clients.

By hiring a personal injury attorney to represent you after a car accident, there are benefits that you don’t have access to if you attempt to represent yourself in court. Lawyers that specialize in this field will at least be familiar with the other driver’s lawyer, but may know them personally. They will also be familiar with local judges, the police department, and expert witnesses that may be called to testify in court. Another factor to take into consideration is that when you retain the services of a personal injury attorney, the other driver involved in the accident will know that you are serious about your intent.

Since the circumstances of each car accident are different, it’s very important for you to contact an attorney that specializes in motor vehicle accidents, because only an attorney can get all the pertinent facts about your accident and the circumstances surrounding it. When the attorney has evaluated all the information, he will be able to tell you what your rights are and will know how to proceed with your case to get the largest settlement for you that’s allowable under law.


Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
