How to protect your rights if you’ve been in an auto accident

October 6, 2016

Let’s face it. At the very least, auto accidents are no fun, and at worst, they can send your life spinning in a hundred different directions…none of them good.

Dealing with damages to your car, injuries to you or your passengers, lost time from work, medical bills and much more, all of which can be intimidating and overwhelming.

That’s why you need to do the smart thing and retain an experienced auto accident attorney after you’ve been in an accident. An attorney can help you sort things out, protect your legal rights and shield you from the other party and their insurance company.

In addition, if the other party is at fault, then having an attorney on your side is even more important. If you’ve been injured or sustained major damage, then you will definitely want to be made whole from the accident by seeking compensation for medical bills, recovery from property damage, lost wages, rehabilitation costs, pain and suffering, and much more.

Rather than playing defense on your own, an attorney can be your aggressive partner, defending your interests in a process that could take weeks or even months to sort out.

And the sooner you can retain an attorney, the better. Your rights are at risk from the first time you speak to an insurance company, all the way through to the time that you actually receive funds to cover your accident-related losses. Not only will an attorney protect your rights, but they are also in the best possible position to effectively negotiate the highest possible settlement amount you are entitled to, using years of knowledge about auto accidents and how the insurance industry works in your favor.
