Although drivers know the dangers of using their cellphones to talk or text while driving down the road, many do so anyway. Unfortunately, other drivers on the road are often innocent victims in what are often very serious crashes. If you were injured by a careless driver who cared more about sending a text message than your safety, you are now dealing with lost wages from your job, thousands of dollars in medical bills, and daily stress from worrying how you will support yourself and your family. Rather than continue to worry, here is why you need an experienced personal injury lawyer on your side.
Insurance Company Negotiations
Since insurance companies are in no hurry to compensate you for your injuries, you will need an experienced lawyer working for you who knows how to give insurance companies a sense of urgency to settle your case. By working with an attorney who uses the evidence associated with your accident to build a strong case on your behalf, insurance companies suddenly become more than willing to provide you with the compensation you deserve.
Due to the stress you are now under after your auto accident, you are probably not thinking clearly about what to do next. By hiring a lawyer who understands how these accidents can be so devastating to victims, you can receive sound legal advice you can trust. For example, your lawyer will likely tell you to avoid making posts on social media until your case is resolved, since many victims say the wrong thing online or post photos that are later used against them by insurance companies.
In most accidents, there are multiple witnesses who can provide details that may be the difference between winning or losing a case. By immediately hiring a skilled personal injury attorney, they can contact these witnesses and interview them to get information needed to make your case stronger.
To make sure you get the compensation you need while also holding the other driver accountable for their negligence, schedule a meeting today with personal injury and car accident attorneys here at Gary Phillips Accident Law.
