With millions of drivers on the road, car accidents are an inevitable part of life in the Southland. You can be the safest driver in the world, but every time you get behind the wheel, you are still at risk because there are other drivers who don’t always follow the rules and who can cause an accident at any given time.
Some accidents are little more than fender benders, while others are more significant causing injuries to you and your passengers and doing major damage to your vehicle and other surrounding property. In some cases, who is at fault will be obvious and a case may appear to be one that can be easily settled. Others can be more complicated, requiring many resources to prove a case. Regardless of the size and scope of an accident, in a vast majority of cases, it makes good sense to hire an experienced car accident attorney to protect your personal and financial rights.
Even in minor accidents, attorneys can far exceed their value in terms of any fees you may be required to pay. That’s because they are highly familiar with the types and amounts of damages that you may be entitled to when someone else is at fault. They can negotiate a maximum amount that you can receive for pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and other related compensation.
Just as important, in cases where liability may be in question, an attorney can ramp up efforts on your behalf to make sure that any lingering doubts are resolved, proving the other side was negligent, which clears the way to collect damages. If needed, an attorney can call upon expert witnesses to support your point of view, and will be able to also use case law and help a judge or jury interpret evidence in a way that sides with your arguments.
Having an advocate that understands all of the complexities of the legal system and meeting deadlines in a timely manner is a wise investment to ensure you have the best possible outcome if you are involved in a car accident.
