When you are injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, medical bills and lost income are often not the only things you are after. If you are like many people who have been hurt by careless drivers, you want justice. After all, you didn’t cause the accident, why should you be the one paying the price?
Some personal injury claims can be fairly settled without the assistance of an attorney. If the accident was a mere fender bender or the injuries were very minor, an attorney might not be needed. You may be able to reach a reasonable settlement with the insurance company on your own. On the other hand, if you have been seriously hurt, the last thing you want to do is to try to navigate the complex legal system alone.
After an accident, you need an experienced attorney on your side.
There are many benefits to having accident attorney Shane Smith in your corner. Here are some reasons why you may want to reach out to a personal injury attorney after a car or truck accident:
Hiring an experienced attorney levels the playing field. You may have the right to full and fair compensation for injuries and property damage caused by another person, but the legal system is complicated, and insurance companies are not going to be looking out for you.
Insurance companies would rather offer the minimum payout for property damages than give you a fair settlement, including payment for lost income, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
Many DUI victims don't know how or when to file a civil suit. If a drunk driver injures you, the person responsible may be sentenced by a criminal court, but does that pay your medical bills? Your auto accident attorney can explain the laws and settlement options for DUI victims.
