Want Peace Of Mind In Regard To Your Car Accident Claim?

By Timothy Young

No one likes to hire an attorney even under the best of circumstances. When you hire an attorney it usually means that you are faced with a difficult situation and you must seek help. It is particularly difficult to pay a portion of your settlement to an accident attorney following the settlement of your claim. However, as serious injury lawyers who routinely successfully handle injury claims each year, we know that clients receive several benefits when they hire our office.

The first benefit that brings peace of mind immediately after hiring a good injury lawyer relates to dealings with either your own insurer or the other driver's insurer. These days insurers have well trained adjusters and many have in house lawyers who are skilled at adjusting claims for the benefit of the insurance company. Almost immediately after any serious accident you will receive phone calls from the adjusters and perhaps even their attorneys. When you hire a skilled injury attorney following your car accident, you will immediately avoid having to deal with the insurance company or its attorneys.

Since we are lawyers in Louisiana, we are allowed to advance expenses for medical treatment and testing for our injured clients. Our clients immediately receive any type of medical treatment which is necessary relating to their accident. This allows them to prove their claim. Many clients do not have health insurance or money available to pay for expensive medical treatment and testing. In this way, our office is able to "invest" in our clients' claims in order to maximize their recovery.

Finally, a good lawyer can properly evaluate your claim and give a recommendation on the value of the claim. It is difficult if not impossible to properly judge how much your claim may be worth. Typically the value of your claim will depend upon the seriousness of your injury which may not be known to you if you have not had proper medical testing. Additionally, the value of your claim can depend upon your legal rights under the law. In Louisiana, for example, you can receive penalties and even attorney's fees if your insurer acts in bad faith in regard to handling your claim. If you do not have this specialized information available to you it is impossible to properly judge how much you should receive for your settlement.

Rather than viewing lawyers and attorney fees as expenses or costs associated with your claim, it is better to view lawyers as consultants or experts that you retain in order to maximize your recovery. These consultants/experts handle all aspects of your claim including preparing for trial and arguing as your advocate in order to maximum your recovery. When you view lawyers and attorney fees in such a way, it is clear to see that they are on your team trying to help you rather than the insurance company. Even the best business man knows that it pays to hire the best consultants and experts for specialized jobs. - 30457
