5 Ways An Accident Attorney Can Help You
If you were involved in an accident through no fault of your own, it is natural to seek redress for whatever injuries you may have sustained. While you can file for a personal injury claim on your own, it is always a lot better to seek the professional services of accident injury lawyers like the ones at Aronberg, Aronberg, & Green Injury Law Firm to help you in every aspect of your case. Here are 5 ways an accident attorney can help you and make things a lot easier for you.
An Accident Attorney Has In-Depth Knowledge of Pertinent Laws
Your case, be it a vehicular or traffic accident or even slip and fall accident or any other form of accidents that resulted in your injuries, will be governed by a set of laws that are specific to such cases. While the principles may be similar, their application can be sometimes changed to reflect the nature of the accident. There are a lot of laws that may come into conflict with other laws. For instance, you may have been involved in a traffic accident wherein you were hit by another car. This should already be a clear case of you being the victim. Unfortunately, if you were under the influence of alcohol at the time of the collision, this can change the complexity of the case. Only an accident lawyer can help you navigate through such loopholes.
Avoid The Pitfalls of Statute of Limitations
Every legal action has a prescribed time frame upon which legal remedies can be applied. For instance, you are only given a certain length of time to file a complaint at the time of the accident. If this period of time has already lapsed and you did not file any complaint, you can no longer file a complaint related to that accident. Getting an attorney to help you with your case means you don’t have to worry anymore about such statute of limitations since they are already well-versed with such limitations.
Communication and Negotiation With Insurers
From drafting the letters to negotiating with the insurer of the other party as well as its legal representative, your accident attorney will be doing this part to make sure that your interests are properly represented. The important thing to understand is that the other party will always employ tactics to adversely affect your claim. As much as possible, they don’t want to claim liability since this will typically mean they will have to pay. In many instances, the lawyers and insurers of the other party will resort to dirty tactics often involving tarnishing your reputation and painting you as an unscrupulous individual whose action caused the accident. At Aronberg, Aronberg, & Green Injury Law Firm, you can bet that any dirty tactic employed by the other party’s team of lawyers and insurers will also be checked and managed appropriately.
Accurate Estimation of Your Total Damage
It is natural for the insurer of the other party in an accident case to lower the overall value of the damage. After all, this is often viewed as a financial loss on their part so they have to minimize the losses as much as possible. As such, they will be very fast in offering you compensation for the injuries you sustained because of the accident. In many cases, because of the emotions still running high from the accident, plaintiffs immediately accept these offers thinking that it is already good for them. Unfortunately, this is only a fraction of how much you can actually recover from them if you let an accident attorney make accurate computations of your overall damage.
Prove The Liability of The Other Party
The other party, as we have already mentioned, will assign part of the blame on you. Your attorney, on the other hand, will exhaust every means necessary to gather and obtain all the different pieces of evidence to help build a solid case. There are 4 things that your attorney will try to prove based on the evidence gathered. First, the other party has a duty. Second, the other party breached this particular duty. Third, the breach of this duty caused the injury that you suffered. And fourth, your injuries led to damages. Only an accident lawyer will know just what kind of evidence will help prove these 4 points to help you build a solid case.
