In the context of an automobile accident: if you have been involved in an automobile accident and have been injured, it is important to contact a personal injury lawyer.
When liability or fault is contested in an automobile accident, the insurance adjuster for the other side will try to prove your fault or diminish the value of your claim. It is important that you use caution when making statements to the opposing side because it can be used against you during settlement negotiations and/or the litigation process.
Additionally, there are certain situations in which the insurance carrier for the other side will offer you compensation for the injuries or damages that you have suffered to avoid litigation, but it is possible that this amount is significantly lower than what you actually deserve. Many cases do not actually go through the litigation process. If this happens, a personal injury lawyer can still negotiate fair compensation for the injuries you have suffered as a result of the accident.
There can be a situation in which the negligent person, entity or organization has multiple types of insurances and policies, which you, the victim, may not be aware of. A personal injury attorney can seek to recover all the necessary information from all applicable insurance companies, to ensure that you are properly compensated for your injuries.
