Is A Personal Lawyer What You Need After An Accident?

Accidents are usually the start of something bigger for those involved. Aside from the injuries and the mounting hospital bills you will pay, you can bet that you’ll be hounded by insurance companies and the other people who were involved in the accident. The truth is that you can defend yourself from what comes next but if you don’t want to get taken advantage of, it might be wise to find a personal injury lawyer.

A personal injury lawyer will guide you through what comes next after an accident. If you’ve never been in one before, you need to understand that there could be court hearings and investigations involved. As such, it’s important to find a lawyer to protect yourself. Here’s an overview of what you can expect upon getting a personal injury lawyer.

An Assistant For All Your Documentation Needs

Once the legal interventions step in, you will need to immediately secure many documents including insurance claims, medical records, and more. Aside from that, you’ll have to consult with various entities including the authorities and the legal team of the other party involved in the accident if there are any.

To cut it short, what comes after is a stressful and trying process of getting your things together. With a personal injury lawyer however, those things will feel like a breeze. Aside from defending you from further legal harm, these lawyers will also assist you in everything else you need before, during, and after the legal proceedings.

Handle Legal Proceedings The Right Way

As we’ve said, insurance companies and other legal entities could take advantage of your condition and your lack of legal knowledge. While you can easily handle things on your own, keep in mind that there are a lot of things to consider when push finally comes to shove and you have to go to court.

Having a personal injury lawyer at your side at all times will be a great step moving forward. Not only will he or she help guide you on what is happening and what could happen, they could also prevent other entities from taking advantage of you.

Save More Money

One of the reasons why you could be hesitant about getting a personal injury lawyer is that you don’t want to spend more money. We get it, you’ve been through an accident and you’re currently paying for auto repairs and medical bills. However, what you might not know is that by foregoing legal assistance, you could be losing more money.

Aside from the fees and penalties you’ll have to pay, you’ll also lose more money as you take time off work to handle things on your own. If you invest in a lawyer immediately, you’ll avoid these losses from the get-go. True enough, legal assistance is always one of the best investments you can make at this point.

Get Higher Settlements

You can also see these lawyers as a negotiator for the settlement that you can make. Keep in mind that you still have medical and auto repair bills to pay. If you are aiming to make ends meet, then you’ll need to find a way to maximize the settlement that you’ll be receiving from the other party.

Lawyers will do that for you as they make sure to give their clients only the best results. Whatever the outcome may be, you need to keep in mind that what you’ll be getting is definitely higher than what you were initially offered before you got a lawyer.


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.
