If you have suffered injury as the result of a car accident, you may be wondering whether you need an attorney or whether you should try and settle the claim on your own with the insurance company. While you may file a personal injury claim yourself, for the best possible outcome in your case, it is best to consult with an experienced motor vehicle accident attorney.
A qualified NJ accident attorney can significantly improve the outcome of your case
Having a qualified car accident attorney can significantly improve the outcome of your personal injury case. A skilled accident attorney knows the evidence needed to prove liability in your case, and that attorney will gather the necessary medical records to demonstrate the damages you sustained. An experienced car accident attorney knows how to navigate the complexities of dealing with insurance companies and will advocate on your behalf, effectively negotiating the most satisfactory settlement in your case.
What can I expect from an accident attorney?
While much depends on the specifics and the complexity of your case, generally speaking, an accident attorney will perform the following with regard to your motor vehicle accident claim:
- communicate with the other driver’s insurer
- communicate with your health care providers
- obtain missing medical records from your health care providers
- organize bills and medical records
- collect the evidence necessary to demonstrate liability
- work with medical professionals to ensure they provide the necessary information to prove damages
- organize and present the evidence to prove liability and damages
- negotiate with lien holders on your claim to reduce the amount of liens
- negotiate a satisfactory settlement with the defense attorney or insurance adjuster
Can’t I negotiate a settlement myself?
You may try and negotiate a settlement yourself. But in most personal injury cases, doing this on your own will not result in the best settlement possible in your case. A qualified car accident attorney will draw upon their knowledge of personal injury law, their experience in handling similar motor vehicle accident claims, and their understanding of what your car accident case is worth to skillfully negotiate the best possible settlement on your behalf.
