Welcome to my Site!

A few years ago, I was in a pretty serious car accident. During the aftermath, I became really familiar with a lot of different types of lawyers. I worked with personal injury lawyers, insurance lawyers, and many others. Perhaps the most important, though, was the estate planning lawyer. I was really young, and neither my wife or I had thought about starting a will. But the accident kind of scared us into it. What would happen if one of us were to die? Even when still in the hospital, I was working with the lawyer to draw up a will. Now, I have some peace and security about what the future will be like if something should happen to me. And I have a lot of experience working with various types of lawyers! The accident was kind of a blessing in disguise in that way.

Which Route Should Your Personal Injury Case Take?

Trying to cope with injuries and everything else after an accident can be tough. Most accident victims are frustrated by the way the at-fault driver's insurance carrier is handling their claims but are not sure they need to speak to an attorney. To help you decide what to do, take a look at the below signals that will show whether or not you need legal help or not.

You Might Want To At Least Speak To A Personal Injury Lawyer If:

  1. Your medical claims are being taken less than seriously by the insurer. Insurers are good at ignoring claims and delaying payment, in some cases. Sometimes, all it takes to get them to act is a letter from an attorney.
  2. You are pretty sure that the other driver was in the wrong but you are worried that your own actions could come under scrutiny. The tiniest chance of being partially at fault should mean you need legal help with your case.
  3. You are alarmed and confused when the other person's insurer asks for permission to review your medical records. Insurers often try to mitigate the potential of having to pay claims by alleging that your injury was preexisting.
  4. You are badly enough injured that you are uncertain about how to handle your case. To promote a quick recuperation from your injuries, placing your legal issues in the hands of an attorney is a smart idea. That way, you will avoid making mistakes at such a vulnerable and stressful time.

You Should Waste No Time Before You Speak To An Attorney If:

  1. You have medical claims that are being disputed by the insurer. Medical expenses often rise to an exorbitant level and non-payment could seriously damage a victim's credit. You are entitled to pay for all medical expenses but you may need to take legal action to get it done.
  2. You have injuries that will continue to affect you well into the future. You are also entitled to be paid for medical expenses that happen long after the case is settled. Your medical condition should be evaluated and an estimate of future needs should be demanded of the other side.
  3. Your injuries are so severe that your quality of life has been affected for quite some time. You can be paid for what is known as pain and suffering when your medical treatment costs are high and your injuries are severe.
  4. You have been counter-sued by the other driver. This automatically complicates your claim and you will need representation to avoid being held responsible for an accident you did not cause.

If you are unsure of what steps to take, speak to a car accident lawyer about your case.
