Why You Need a Personal Injury Attorney After an Accident

More than 352,000 individuals were involved in an Indiana collision in 2018. 873 were killed, and nearly 20,000 others suffered incapacitating injuries.

These accidents are often caused by drivers who are distracted, intoxicated, and/or speeding. Navigating the legal aftermath of a motor vehicle collision can be challenging, especially when serious injuries have occurred.

Consult an Expert

In the confusion and devastation that result from a serious accident, you may be tempted to accept a check from the insurance company. However, it’s important to understand your rights. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you understand your needs and prepare for a future that may be severely impacted by your injuries.

Here are three of the top reasons to consult with an attorney after an accident:

  • Get expert guidance regarding your specific situation
  • Understand your legal options
  • Get answers to all of your pressing legal questions

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in an accident, it’s time to call an expert.

Focus on Recovering

A personal injury attorney can help you in many ways. By managing the legal aspects of your case, your attorney frees up your time to focus on recovering. Your attorney will investigate the accident, collect evidence, consult with experts, and fight for justice on your behalf.

Additionally, having an attorney protects you from being taken advantage of by the defendant’s insurance company. Your attorney will also help you complete and file any necessary paperwork, negotiate with insurance representatives, and provide the support you need as you recover.
