When Should I Call a Lawyer?

The short answer: any time you’ve been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else.

However, we should pause a moment and let you know that not every situation is grounds for legal action. Here are a few things we’ll want to look at:

  • Did the at-fault party owe you a duty of care? In other words, should they have taken action or reasonable precautions to keep you safe?
  • Did the at-fault party break that duty? For instance, a driver disregarding traffic laws would be breaching a duty to keep other drivers safe.
  • Were you injured because of that breach? As lawyers, one of our primary tasks is to make a connection between the at-fault party’s carelessness and your injuries. In considering your situation, is this something we could prove?
  • Did your injury result in damages? Damages refer to the tangible and non-tangible ways you were harmed. Examples of damages include missed wages, medical bills, pain, and suffering.

The higher your damages, the more urgently you should reach out to a personal injury lawyer. It’s important that you have someone who can fight for fair compensation on your behalf.

Can’t I Just Work with the Insurance Company After an Accident?

Following an accident, you will likely need to file a claim with the insurance company. At first, it may seem like the insurance company is on your side, and sorry you were hurt. But make no mistake: the insurance company’s primary responsibility is to their bottom line.

In our years of experience, we’ve seen insurance companies work to discredit, delay, and even deny injury claims. When you work with a skilled attorney, you will have the option of filing a lawsuit should the insurance company’s offer come in too low. Our team has extensive courtroom experience and will not hesitate to argue your case before a jury or judge.
