Here Is Why You Need a Lawyer If You Are Involved in a Car Accident

By John Page on June 23, 2017

Car Accident Lawyers in MOCar accidents can be life-changing events, especially when they result in serious injuries. If you have been involved in a car accident, you are likely confused, scared, and upset. You may also have no clue how to proceed without damaging your case. By contacting an experienced accident attorney, you level the playing field against the insurance company and their team of lawyers. Your attorney will protect your legal rights and help you obtain all the compensation you are entitled to.

Here are some of the specific ways a lawyer can help you after a serious car accident.

Evaluate and Investigate Your Claim

Not every car accident entitles an accident to compensation. When you retain an attorney, your lawyer will evaluate your case and determine whether you have a viable claim. In some cases, an attorney will conduct an initial investigation to establish whether your accident was caused by the negligence of another person. Some of the evidence your accident lawyer may collect includes:

  • Police investigation
  • Scene photos
  • Vehicle photos
  • Eyewitness statements
  • Vehicle maintenance records
  • Cellphone records
  • Surveillance footage
  • Determine How Much Your Case Is Worth

When you retain an attorney, they will determine the damages you are entitled to, based on the specific facts of your case. Common damages available in Missouri and Illinois car accident cases include medical expenses, property damage, loss of quality of life, physical and emotional pain and suffering, past wage loss, future wage loss, and diminished earning capacity.

A Lawyer Will Deal with the Insurance Company for You

Retaining a car accident lawyer will help tremendously with the claims process. Insurance companies often make the claims process difficult for the accident. They sometimes engage in tactics designed to wear injury victims down or to get them to say things that will destroy the case. Your lawyer will keep this nonsense from happening and will deal directly with the insurance company so you don’t get tripped up.
