The Top Reasons You Need An Accident Attorney On Your Side


It’s easy to poke fun at lawyers, but the reality is that when you need legal services they can truly be your best friend. There are more than 19.5 million people living in Florida, and millions more visit each year. Thanks to the high population, the state is also home to millions of accidents each year. Some are serious, some are minor. Some are auto related, others slip and falls, and some are as simple as cutting yourself while slicing an onion. But if you’re injured and you don’t feel like it was your fault, you could deserve financial compensation. That’s when an accident attorney is important.

There are several key reasons that turning to an accident lawyer to help you is worth considering, and taking a look at all of them is a good idea. The sooner you speak to an attorney, the faster you can get started getting the help that you need and the compensation you deserve.

Here’s a rundown of the main reasons you need an accident attorney on your side after you’re injured:

  • First, they’ll help you figure out whether or not you even have the right to seek compensation and what your odds of getting restitution are. It’s important to know this since the process of filing a personal injury claim will take time and can be rather stressful. Knowing ahead of time what your odds will be of receiving compensation could save you that stress, as well as disappointment.
  • Having an attorney on your side also helps you avoid a tremendous amount of stress throughout the process. Instead of having to try to determine if settlement offers are fair, stress about heading to court, and more, your attorney takes over. You are able to recover and focus on your life while the lawyer does the hard work.
  • They’ll also protect you and ensure that you get a fair deal. It’s far too common for people who don’t have representation to just accept the first offer that they’re given from an insurance company. Of course, those insurance companies are in the business of saving themselves money, and that first offer likely isn’t the best you could get. Your attorney will be able to determine what you’re really entitled to. In other words, having an attorney on your side will help you get more money.
  • Your attorney can also speed up the process. Studies have shown that when an attorney represents an injured party, the insurance companies are far more likely to settle out of court than they would be if the injured party didn’t have representation. This means that instead of the process being dragged out for years, you’ll likely get your money much more quickly.
  • An attorney will also know more about any class action lawsuits that you may qualify for. In doing so, they can help ensure that you get the best with a minimum amount of stress.

If this all sounds impressive, it should. An attorney really can do a lot of work for you and help you get the best settlement for your situation, and they won’t charge you until you’ve actually won your settlement. At that point, they’ll deduct their fee from your settlement. This way, you don’t have to pay out of pocket expenses.
