Top 5 Reasons to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney After a Car Accident
The average number of automobile accidents in the U.S. every year is six million, with three million people suffering an injury every year, and over 90 people a day experiencing a fatality. When you or a loved one are the victim of a car accident where injuries are involved, you need an experienced car accident attorney to protect your interests. At Whalen Hersh, we successfully represent car accident victims every day. Over the years we have recovered millions of dollars in settlements for our clients. Our goal for every case is to establish a direct, meaningful, trusted and reliable relationship with our clients, and achieve a settlement for your injuries and other losses that is fair and just compensation.
If you or a loved one have been injured in a car accident, you’ll need a car accident attorney to properly pursue a civil lawsuit against the person responsible for the accident and your injuries, and to ensure you are adequately compensated for those injuries and losses. Car accidents can be costly and complicated, and if you’ve been injured you may not be up to the task of fighting an insurance company to get a fair settlement and could be vulnerable to pressure to settle your claim for less than you deserve. That’s where Whalen Hersh can assist you.
Here are the top five reasons to hire a personal injury attorney after a car accident:
Having someone to interact with insurance companies
We understand that a car accident can be life changing, especially when injuries are sustained. Our firm exclusively represents clients against insurance companies and corporations in personal injury matters. When you are injured in a car accident you should be free to focus on receiving treatment and healing as quickly as possible. Insurance companies will often pressure accident victims to settle quickly in the days following an accident, and that may not be in your best interests.
Protecting your legal rights
While you focus on healing, we will work diligently to prove liability for your injuries to ensure that you receive the medical attention you need, and that the driver at fault for the accident is held responsible. Without the services of an experienced, qualified car accident attorney, proving who was at fault can be very difficult.
Assessing the value of damages and injuries
Determining the proper value of the damages and losses you suffer in an accident can be a complex matter. An experienced accident lawyer is skilled in determining the value of your injuries and can advise you when a settlement offer from an insurance company is too low and will not cover the full extent of your losses, which can include past and future medical expenses, lost wages, reduced future income, and property damage.
Receiving a fair settlement
In addition to assessing the value of your losses, a skilled personal injury attorney knows how to negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf. Because of our experience working with insurance adjusters over many years, Whalen Hersh has the advantage of knowing how to negotiate for you to ensure you receive the compensation you are owed.
Filing a lawsuit
If the insurance company for the at-fault driver is not willing to offer an acceptable settlement, the team at Whalen Hersh is prepared to file a personal injury lawsuit to help you get the compensation you deserve. This will often result in a fair settlement offer being made before the case goes to court. At Whalen Hersh, we are prepared to take your case to court if that is the best way to get you the compensation that you deserve.
