Situations When You Need a Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyer

by Liesanne Martin

Your car is very useful when it comes to helping you get to wherever need to be quickly and conveniently. However, you can never rule out the possibility of getting involved in an accident because your safety on the road can be compromised by other motorists, if not by you. In the event of a motor accident, you can settle compensation claims on your own. But you may sometimes need a good lawyer to defend you against compensation claims that may be made by the injured parties or to seek compensation for your injuries if you think it is the other party at fault. Therefore, you have to understand under which circumstances you will need to employ the services of a motor vehicle accident lawyer.

Here are 2 circumstances that may call for the assistance of a motor vehicle accident lawyer when you are seeking compensation for your car accident: 

When you are having trouble with your insurer.

Typically, your insurance company should step in and handle all compensation claim issues arising from a motor accident you are involved in. However, it is sometimes not business as usual with motor vehicle insurers. Maybe you were not able to gather all the information required to make an auto accident claim because of being too traumatized by the ordeal. As a result, you might not be able to gather accurate information on the extent of damage caused to your car. In such a case, your insurer may refuse to settle the claim no matter how sufficient the information you have provided is to consider your compensation claim. This is when you may need a motor vehicle accident lawyer as they can work with the available information to negotiate compensation claims on your behalf.

When you have sustained bodily injuries.

At times your car accident may result in more than just damage to your car; you may sustain injuries that may be much more complicated than you think. In the long term, you may suffer immense physical and mental pain that can prove to be far costlier than the refund of medical expenses, lost remunerations or car repair costs that the other party may be so quick to offer. Engaging a lawyer will ensure that due diligence is exercised in such cases. They may hold off settling of your compensation claim until such a time when sufficient medical tests have been performed to determine the true extent of injuries stemming from the accident.
