Many car accident victims can feel overwhelmed in the days and weeks following such an incident. Everything from being treated for injuries, to having property replaced or repaired, to tending to time-sensitive personal affairs can take up most of an injured person's time and energy after an accident.
Often, the idea of taking legal action takes a backseat to matters that are seemingly more pressing. Perhaps finding an experienced attorney seems daunting, being compensated for injuries is a secondary concern to getting well, or the injured person is simply not sure if they even have a legal case. The best thing someone in this situation can do is reach out to a knowledgeable attorney who can discuss their case with them and determine what rights they have and how to protect them.
An Attorney Can Help
There are many benefits to seeking the advice of counsel following a car accident. An injured person likely has a long list of questions relating to the incident, and a good accident attorney can help to put their mind at ease. An attorney working in the best interests of their client allows the client to focus on other things, like rehabilitation and medical care
A personal injury attorney will be familiar with the areas of the law that are relevant to your case and also know the procedural steps to take in order to have your case properly brought to court. The average person is likely not be aware of time limits on claims and pleadings, or what material and information needs to be included in the documents submitted to the court, but an attorney will be familiar with this information and will take action on their client's behalf. Not only can a knowledgeable attorney counsel their client on his or her case, they can also let their client know what they can expect from the other side.
There is a lot of time consuming work and specialized knowledge that is required for a successful personal injury case. Even if an injured person possesses the requisite knowledge of the law and procedure, they may not be able to afford devoting such a substantial amount of time to bringing a lawsuit. In addition to appearing in court and filing documents, personal injury cases almost always involve negotiations for settlement purposes. Having a legal professional advocate on their client's behalf against the other side gives the injured person a better chance at a fair settlement offer.
