Moving Swiftly To Protect Your Claim After A Car Accident
Car accidents are the most common type of personal injury case that usually results in the hiring of a personal injury lawyer. It’s pretty safe to say, we’ve all had a “fender bender” or two if we’ve been driving for an extended number of years. With that in mind, the basic first things that come to mind immediately following an auto accident in Hillsborough County, Florida, are checking the severity of physical harm or injury to all drivers and passengers involved, assessing vehicle and/or property damage, and contacting the insurance companies.
Sadly enough and perhaps the most important thing to do immediately after the accident doesn’t even come to mind – is to contact, consult and/or hire a personal injury lawyer who focuses on auto accident claims.
How We Can Assist You
Your personal injury lawyer can review your case in a manner in which you cannot and aren’t trained to do so. Your lawyer can obtain critical information that you ordinarily may not be able to, such as police reports, documents from the guilty party, video footage and photos of your accident scene if/when available, names of bystanders and/or witnesses, as well as further possible supporting evidence a bystander may have in their possession, such as cellphone photos and video recordings. Your attorney is also trained to properly assess medical expenses, lost wages, vehicle damage and repair costs to ensure fair compensation. Most importantly, your lawyer can even contact the other driver, their insurance company and their lawyer on your behalf. Whether your car has been rear-ended, involved in a T-bone accident or another serious car wreck, it is critical that you get skilled legal assistance.
Accident and personal injury laws vary from case to case and state to state, and oftentimes unrepresented victims get the short end of the deal, usually because they’re unable to adequately interpret the laws, they’re not familiar with the laws, and they’re simply not aware of all that they may be entitled to. It’s for those reasons that it’s imperative you hire a personal injury lawyer in Hillsborough County, Florida. He/she will know the various legal arguments to present and how to properly counter the other driver’s defense team and insurer. Your lawyer will also know the “loopholes” of the “system” that can be beneficial to you as well.
Not hiring a personal injury lawyer as quickly as possible will be detrimental to receiving all your entitlements, a fair trial and the overall outcome of your case. The longer you wait to hire a lawyer – the more your opportunity will decrease.
