What Are My Rights After an Accident?
If you’re reading this page, you probably haven’t been in a fender bender. You’ve had a serious accident. Your life hasn’t been the same since the wreck. However, you may have some unanswered questions.
- Do I have a case?
- How much is my case worth?
- Do I need a lawyer?
A personal injury attorney who specializes in auto accidents can help you. Trained legal staff can evaluate your case with you. From there they can decide if there’s a valid claim of negligence by another party. As for the value of your claim, that will vary depending on the severity of the accident. No lawyer can instantly size-up a case and give it a value. The severity of the accident and your losses must be reviewed.
And, finally, do you really need a lawyer? That one is up to you, but it is generally a good idea for a few reasons. Like you have strong indicators the accident was due to negligence. The wreck was very bad and caused a lot of damage. Or, if the insurance company is being shady or if the person who hit you had no insurance. In these types of situations, a car accident lawyer can be invaluable.
