If you're reading this, you've probably been in an auto accident recently. Hopefully this will be the first and last accident that you'll be in. Thankfully, most people won't be involved in multiple serious car accidents in their lives. As such, this whole process will likely be new to you. Your first question will probably be whether you should hire a lawyer or not. This can be a stressful decision to make. Unfortunately, lawyers don't have the best reputation in society. Due to the many legal shows on TV which show lawyers behaving badly, it's understandable that you may not be eager to hire a lawyer. After all, you don't even know if a lawyer is even necessary. Please get over the fear of lawyers as soon as possible. You will definitely need a lawyer if you've been involved in a serious car crash. In a perfect world there would be no need for lawyers. If someone hurts you in an accident they should simply compensate you for your pain, suffering, wage loss, medical bills, etc. If they have insurance, than the insurance company should fully compensate you without giving you a hard time. Sadly, insurance companies care much more about making as much money as possible than they do about doing the right thing. They will do everything they can to minimize your claim and accuse you of exaggerating your injuries. They will try at all costs to not compensate you for all of your wage loss, all of your medical bills, and all of your pain and suffering. This is why you need a lawyer. You need someone on your side. You need someone who will fight with the insurance companies to get you every cent of compensation that you're entitled to. You need a professional on your side who has years of experience in dealing with insurance companies. You need a lawyer who can take your case to court if necessary. Someone who will not only take your case to court but who will obtain a great jury verdict for you. There aren't any good reasons not to get a lawyer if you've been injured in an accident. One of the best reasons to hire an attorney is because you don't have to pay them until they win your case. Personal injury law is one of the only areas of law where you don't have to pay your lawyer unless he is successful. Also, he is being paid a percentage of what he gets for you. This means that you can rest at ease knowing your lawyer will get you as much as possible for your injuries because he'll receive a percentage of the money. Please don't try to handle your insurance claim on your own. Don't think that you'll give it a shot and then call a lawyer if you run into trouble. Most likely if you try to handle the case on your own at first, you'll end up making a mess of your claim and then you'll have a very hard time getting a lawyer latter. Lawyers don't like to get involved in a case late after things are already messy. They like to get involved right from the beginning so that they can make sure that everything goes smoothly. Hopefully we've convinced you to hire a lawyer right after your accident. Now you just need to decide which lawyer to hire. Thanks to the internet, researching which lawyer to hire is easier than ever. You can start by reviewing their webpages. That will give you a feel for the type of lawyer they are. Next, you can read some of their online reviews. Lastly, you can start calling them to talk about your case. Most lawyers won't try to pressure you to hire them, so feel free to call several lawyers to see how you feel about them and whether you'll want to work with them on your case for the next couple of years.
