If you’ve been hurt in a car wreck, you may be considering whether or not to hire a lawyer. Although you are not required to do so, it is a good idea to consult with an attorney after a crash, even if you were not at fault for the collision.
The cost of a car wreck can be devastating. You may face mounting medical bills, expensive vehicle repairs, and lost wages due to time away from work that you and your family can’t afford. An experienced car accident lawyer can make sure your rights and best interests are protected every step of the way and help you seek the full and fair compensation to which you may be entitled under the law.
A Lawyer Will Determine the True Value of Your Claim
After a car crash, the cost of your vehicle repairs may be relatively straightforward; a body shop will provide an itemized estimate of how much it will cost to fix the damage to your car. Medical bills will detail how much it costs to treat your injuries. However, this only reflects a portion of the losses you may experience due to the other driver’s negligence.
In addition to your car repair and current medical expenses, you may also be entitled to compensation for:
- Future medical bills
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
A Lawyer Will Fight on Your Behalf
Insurance companies are not on your side. They are in the business of making profits, not paying out accident claims. They will do whatever they can to diminish, delay, or outright deny your claim. The experienced attorneys at Holder Susan Slusher LLC understand the tactics used by insurance companies, and we know how to fight for the maximum compensation you need to get back on track.
We will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf to ensure your settlement fairly reflects the true extent of your damages. If a fair settlement cannot be reached, our lawyers are prepared to fight on your behalf in court. This is critical to your ability to obtain the maximum compensation you rightfully deserve.
