After being injured in a car accident, you may wonder about what to do next and whether you should go forward on your own. You know you probably need to make an insurance claim. However, if you have never been in this position before, you may not know your rights or how to file an insurance claim. This is a reason to hire a car accident lawyer. An experienced attorney can take the burden of the insurance claims process off your shoulders. Yet there are a number of other reasons why you should contact Studinski Law, LLC. Call us at (715) 343-2850 to find out how we can help you.

You Should Hire a Car Accident Lawyer to:

  • Investigate your accident
    Sometimes car accidents are simple. Sometimes they are complex and you have to investigate to decide who caused the crash and who is liable for compensating you. You need evidence to prove why the collision occurred, who caused it, and who is responsible for paying for it. A lawyer knows how to conduct an efficient and in-depth investigation into a car accident so you have the evidence you need when you file a claim.
  • Learn the law
    You may think the law regarding personal injuries and property damage is simple until you have an insurance company or at-fault driver fighting back, not wanting to pay for your injuries. Then, it takes a complete understanding of your rights, the law, and insurance contracts to aggressively pursue compensation.
  • Handle the insurance claims process
    The insurance claims process should be straightforward. However, an insurer may try to make things difficult on you or take advantage of your lack of knowledge regarding the law and the insurance policy. By hiring a lawyer to represent you during the claims process, the insurer is less likely to violate your rights, delay claims, or give you low-ball offers.
  • Protect your rights
    In an ideal world, you would file an insurance claim and within a few weeks, you would be offered a sizable settlement. You would be able to cover your medical expenses and lost wages right away. Unfortunately, many car accidents lead to less-than-ideal circumstances. You may end up trying to fight with an insurance company that is acting in bad faith, wrongfully denying your claim or harassing you to accept a low-ball offer. By working with a lawyer who knows your rights, you have an advocate who can identify unfair and unlawful situations and work to correct them immediately.
  • Represent you in court
    Some car accidents cannot be resolved quickly through an insurance claim. You may have to file a personal injury suit to try to recover the compensation you deserve. Without any prior legal experience, this can be a daunting process. However, an attorney can handle the paperwork and administrative tasks for you. They can also attend all of the necessary court appearances throughout your case so you only have to go to court for specific hearings or the trial.
  • Fully utilize the discovery process
    You may need to file a personal injury suit because your insurance claim was denied or there was no insurance, to begin with. However, you may also need to file suit during the insurance claims process to utilize the discovery process. Discovery is the phase during a lawsuit where you and the other parties exchange documentation and information. This can advance your investigation into the accident and liability, helping you gain evidence to support your claim for compensation.
  • Negotiate a settlement
    If your insurance claim is approved, you may not
    receive a fair and reasonable offer right away. Many insurers will make an initial low-ball offer to try to minimize the claim pay out. They hope you accept the first offer right away to save them time and money. However, a lawyer will know how to determine the value of your claim and can assist with negotiating a fair settlement.
