Many people who are involved in a car accident are not sure whether they need to hire an attorney or if they can handle the claim on their own. After all, isn’t that what the insurance company is for? Although less serious car accidents are generally easy to handle, more serious accidents may require legal assistance. Car accidents often result in serious injuries and extensive property damage, and although Florida law allows victims to recover financial compensation, the injured party must prove that the accident was a result of another persons negligence.
Other aspects of a car accident that may determine whether you need to hire a car accident lawyer are the insurance companies involved, severity of injuries and damages and lost wages. Occasionally insurance companies deny claims for no good reason or attempt to give us the run around, not allowing those involved in the accident to receive compensation. In this case, hiring an attorney may be necessary to ensure that your claim be approved and you are compensated appropriately. Accidents that involve serious injuries and tremendous damages may require an attorney to make sure that insurance companies are not underpaying you for your medical bills, lost wages and damages.
