You only have one day in court. You only have one time to get it right. Mistakes made early in your case can be devastating to your claim. Insurance laws are complex, there are deadlines that have to be met and if you’re not aware of the deadlines you can lose or waive valuable rights.
While you’re in the hospital or at home recuperating, the insurance company springs into action. They send their investigators out and get witness statements from witnesses to the accident. They try to get those statements in a manner that shapes them and a story that helps their insured, not you. They also go to the accident scene and photograph it from angles that help them, not you.
Sometimes people accept a settlement from an insurance company thinking that their medicals are open but in reality, you look at the release that they signed and they’ve waived each and every right they have and when they have future complications they’re out of luck.
One of the main reasons you need to call an attorney is to see what needs to get done. There are many things that happen in an accident. Who’s at fault? Are there witnesses? Is the accident scene the same? You have to call an attorney to talk with them about things like insurance coverage. Is there going to be insurance coverage for the accident? Are they going to dispute liability? Is this a claim that is going to have to be taken into the courtroom? None of those questions can be answered unless you call and talk to an attorney.
