Do I Need a Lawyer for a Car Accident?
Suffering a serious injury in a car accident is more than just inconvenient. Depending on how severe your injuries are, you could be out of work, racking up medical bills, and unable to earn a living while you recuperate.
During this time, you are more than likely looking into what your options are for getting the at-fault party to compensate you for the damage they’ve caused. Thankfully, there are a few different ways to go about monetary recovery, but if you want to ensure that your case has its best chance at success, you’ll want to retain highly trained legal representation.
Though you are not legally required to have a lawyer when you want to seek compensation through a civil claim, having one can have a significant impact on the outcome of your case. Continue reading to learn more about why you need a lawyer when you’ve been injured in a car accident.
Building Your Civil Claim
Part of your attorney’s responsibilities will be to examine the details of the accident to determine who is ultimately responsible for the cause of the collision. While you’re recuperating, your lawyer can obtain the evidence we’ll need to establish culpability, whether it be on the part of an automaker, the driver who struck you, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), parts manufacturers, or someone else.
How Much Is Your Lawsuit Worth?
As the person who was injured, you know better than anyone how your injuries have negatively impacted your life, but you may not know how much these damages are worth.
In addition to quantifying both your non-economic and economic losses, your lawyer will inform you of other damages that you may qualify for. This way, when you head into negotiations with the insurance company and/or go to court, you’ll have a better understanding of how much you could be awarded.
