Why Are Car Accident Lawyers Hired?

Car Accident Lawyers Queens

It’s an unfortunate truth that car accidents can’t be avoided, even if the majority of drivers keep caution in mind when behind the wheel. Sometimes, it’s impossible to stop an accident from happening, as in the case of sudden icy road conditions causing a driver to lose control of their vehicle. In this instance, the driver may not hit anything when they lose control, but most of the time loss of control results in a collision of some kind, either with another driver, a pedestrian, or an object.

But just because accidents are unavoidable doesn’t mean drivers who cause them should bear no responsibility. While there are some “no-fault” states—where parties in an accident don’t sue each other but instead take things up with their respective insurance companies—a lot of states are “at-fault” states. In these states, parties to an accident sue each other for damages.

But bringing a claim against another driver, or drivers, after an accident can be difficult for a variety of reasons. It’s not a difficult process, however, if an accident victim hires a car accident lawyer to help them navigate the claim process.

Call 1-800-HURT-511 now! For more than a decade, our car accident lawyers in Queens have been helping victims of car accidents and their families, and we’ll do whatever it takes to develop a compelling case for you so you get the compensation you deserve!

 

How Does a Car Accident Lawyer Help Their Client?

Parties to a car accident are not required to hire lawyers, but having a good lawyer on your team can prove beneficial in a variety of ways. For example, a car accident lawyer will streamline the process and ensure an accurate compensation amount is pursued. Moreover, dealing with the aftermath of an accident can be stressful for all parties involved, and injured parties usually lack the physical and/or mental capabilities to efficiently deal with everything that needs to be done regarding the claim process.

For all these reasons, hiring a car accident lawyer who can navigate the claim process on your behalf is a good move. Moreover, most car accident lawyers work on a contingency basis, which means a client doesn’t have to pay their lawyer unless they secure a settlement. Below are some more important reasons why getting help from a car accident lawyer is recommended.

 

Providing Legal Advice

Liability and traffic laws can be complex. Moreover, different states have different laws and regulations. For this reason, if you get in a car accident, you should hire a lawyer who practices near where the accident took place, as this lawyer will know which laws and regulations pertain to your case.

For example, if you’re injured in a car accident in Queens, you should see a car accident lawyer in Queens, as they’ll be familiar with the area and the spots where accidents occur often. Moreover, they’ll know how local cases that are similar to yours were resolved, so they’ll be able to utilize local precedent to make a compelling case on your behalf.

 

Meeting All Deadlines

There’s usually a statute of limitations in car accident cases, which means parties to an accident have a limited amount of time to get the claim process moving before they’re unable to file a claim. A car accident lawyer will know the applicable statute of limitations inside and out, so they’ll be able to get everything in motion on time.

Moreover, a car accident lawyer will always be on time when submitting documents, and they’ll be prompt during the crucial evidence-gathering stage. Sometimes, medical experts, witnesses, and other relevant parties will need to be reminded multiple times before something gets done, and a good lawyer will have no problem pressing for what they need.

 

Gathering Evidence

The evidence-gathering stage is one of the most crucial. At this stage, a car accident lawyer will gather all relevant information so an airtight case can be developed for their client. They’ll get police reports, witness statements, medical records, and necessary photographic evidence to make the case a strong one. The more detailed a case is, the greater the likelihood that the case will yield success for the plaintiff.

 

Calculating Damages

An experienced and skilled car accident lawyer will be able to determine how much compensation their client deserves for injuries sustained from the accident. They will base the total compensation figure on medical expenses, vehicle damage, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other expenses. It’s critical to have a lawyer who knows how to calculate a total compensation figure properly, as improper calculation may cost a plaintiff thousands of dollars.

 

Dealing With Opposing Attorneys and Insurance Companies

Dealing with your own insurance company can be hard enough sometimes. Dealing with another driver’s insurance company can be even tougher. If your accident only involved one other driver, that driver’s insurance company will not want to be on the hook for paying out restitution. Therefore, they may try to get you to admit fault without realizing it.

It’s best to have a lawyer handle dealing with the insurance companies, as a lawyer will know what to say and what to keep secret. They’ll also be able to negotiate without emotional attachment to the case.

 

Presenting a Case in Court

If a settlement cannot be reached between the parties to an accident, then the dispute may end up in court. While most car accident claims don’t go to court, if yours should, you’ll need a car accident lawyer on your side, as they’ll know how to present your case in front of a judge and jury. A lawyer will ensure your case is not lost because of a technicality or procedural error, and they’ll also show you how to withstand cross examination.

 

Should a Car Accident Victim Pursue the Claim Process Alone?

Choosing to pursue a car accident claim on your own—instead of getting help from an experienced lawyer—is like choosing to walk up a near-vertical incline when you could’ve walked up a small hill. A lawyer will make the claim process so much simpler, and they’ll only get paid if they yield a favorable result.

I was an UBER passenger and the car got rear-ended by a utility van. I called 1-800-HURT-511 since a friend dealt with them before and I was glad I did. My attorney was extremely professional and aggressive when necessary. He was transparent from the start and didn’t complicate things unnecessarily.

I highly recommend HURT-511! When the insurance companies turned me away after a scary scooter accident that nearly killed me, a lawyer at HURT-511 stayed and fought for me and recovered the entire policy! Their staff is well-informed and always available to answer my questions. They treated me like one of their own and I made the right decision to stick with them. Thank you so much!
