Why You Need a Texas Car Wreck Lawyer
Many people believe that hiring a Texas car wreck lawyer after they’re injured in a crash is a waste of money. They believe that the fees will take most, or all, of their settlement. The truth is, however, that with a lawyer’s help, you can actually collect much more (even after fees) than you would be able to on your own.
Keep reading as the Car Crash Captain describes the ways that a lawyer will reduce your stress, streamline the process, and ultimately land you a larger settlement after a wreck.
5 Reasons You Want a Texas Car Wreck Lawyer
Not all wrecks necessitate legal help. Generally speaking, if you weren’t injured in the wreck, then you likely won’t benefit from having a Texas car wreck lawyer help you out. This is due to the fact that compensation is directly tied to the damage done – it’s pretty easy to figure out how much you need reimbursed based on the value of your vehicle.
However, when injuries occur, there’s a whole lot more that goes into an insurance claim. Now you have damage to your property, injury, and also pain and suffering that can be difficult to put a dollar amount to it.
Along with that, your Texas car wreck lawyer will help you with:
Investigation and Gathering Evidence – Most people know the basics of gathering evidence after a car wreck. We know to get pictures of what happened (video if possible). We know to document, perhaps get information from witnesses, and all of that. But when you don’t deal with car wrecks often, sometimes things can slip through the cracks. Knowing the right questions to ask, whom to speak with, and what evidence needs preserved is a huge benefit that a Texas car wreck lawyer helps with.
Negotiations with Insurance Companies – Insurance companies are counting on a few things to move your claim along quickly. They expect that you won’t fully understand the costs associated with your wreck, and they expect that you won’t have the savings available to get by until a settlement is negotiated. A personal injury attorney knows how to negotiate and keep the claim moving fast enough, but in your favor.
Understanding Statute of Limitations – We know that there are limitations on when a person can be held accountable depending on how much time has passed after a crime (or on this case, a negligent car wreck) has been committed. Without checking Google, do you know how long you have to file your personal injury claim? Your Texas car wreck lawyer does.
Litigation and Court Representation – Are you prepared to go to court against an insurance company if they fail to uphold their end of the bargain? If they adamantly deny all claim settlement negotiations, do you know how to handle court proceedings efficiently and effectively? The lawyers at Herbert Law Group do.
Client Support and Advocacy – When you have questions about your case, when you need someone that will stand up for you, or when you are stressed beyond belief, your Texas car wreck lawyer is on your side.
