If I Wasn’t at Fault, Do I Still Need a Car Accident Lawyer?
Yes, you most likely need an attorney if you were hurt in a crash, even if you weren’t at fault. Some car accident victims assume that an absence of fault means that insurers will offer a fair amount of compensation, but this is rarely the case.
Insurance companies make big profits partly because they don’t pay out the full amount injured people deserve. Unfortunately, many injured victims don’t realize they don’t have to accept the insurance company’s first offer.
By hiring a car accident lawyer, you’re simply protecting your best interests. When the stakes are so high, you don’t want to risk going it alone. Let our Carmel car accident lawyers give you a case assessment in a free consultation. Contact us today to get started.
What You Need to Know About Dealing With Insurers
You are NOT obligated to speak to the other driver’s insurance company representative. They want to get you on record making a statement that hurts the value of your claim, and they have many tactics to do this. The best strategy is to tell the insurance company representative that they should speak with your lawyer and say nothing else.
You should also know that the insurance company’s first offer to you is likely far less than you’re entitled to. By accepting that offer, you are closing the door on getting additional compensation. That’s why it’s so important to work with an experienced car accident lawyer, so they can make sure you don’t get taken advantage of by insurers.
Lastly, know that insurance companies will look for every opportunity to deny your claim or offer you less than you deserve. They will look through your social media accounts for anything that hints you’re not as injured as you claim. Don’t do the insurance company any favors; stay off social media until your claim is resolved.
