When it comes to car accidents, the chances of winning are better with a lawyer than without a lawyer.
There are a number of important steps to take after a crash to create the best outcome for your case. In addition to seeking medical care, filing a police report, and notifying your insurance company, your next step should be contacting an experienced Tampa car accident lawyer for legal representation. Working with an experienced car crash lawyer is highly advised, even if you think that your case is straightforward and that you are guaranteed a settlement.
Remember, insurance companies are in the risk business and they never lose. So why do you think they will treat you fairly?
Why You Should Work with a Tampa Auto Accident Lawyer For Your Best Chance to Win
Many people hesitate to contact a Tampa car accident lawyer after a crash. They wonder whether working with an accident lawyer is really necessary. While you have no legal obligation to contact a lawyer, doing so can improve your chances of recovering the maximum amount of money that you are owed, and can also provide you with a sense of confidence and comfort throughout the process.
Here are some important ways that our Tampa car accident lawyer helps you after a car accident:
Investigating your accident. Fault in a crash is not always clear, and even when it is, the right evidence must be collected to prove it. Fault, or negligence, can have a big impact on the amount of money that you receive in a settlement offer, and unless you prove the negligence of the other driver (or other at-fault party), you may be unable to recover compensation at all. The investigation starts as soon as we learn around your accident, collecting all evidence. This includes physical evidence, pictures of the accident scene, police reports, video footage, witness statements, and more.
Filing your claim. Filing can be tricky. You may have questions when filing your claim after an accident, or against whom. This is especially true if the accident was caused by a party other than another driver, such as the manufacturer of a defective auto part. Our Tampa car accident lawyers help you file your claim against the appropriate party in a timely manner.
Proving damages. If you are injured in a crash and suffer losses, you may assume that the insurance adjuster responsible for processing your claim will recognize this and you’ll be compensated. Unfortunately, you will need to prove the full extent of your losses in order to recover any compensation. Our Tampa car crash lawyers can assist you in gathering medical bills, working with experts, and proving damages.
Negotiating for a fair settlement offer. Frequently, insurance adjusters offer claimants less than they deserve, hoping that the claimant will take the money in desperation and frustration. When your settlement offer does not address the full amount of damages you have suffered, we will aggressively negotiate for a more suitable settlement amount.
Getting the Right Doctors for Therapy. If you do not have a doctor in mind that can treat you for your injuries, our firm will recommend 2 or 3 your home and 2 or 3 near your work and then let you decide which doctor you will go to.
File a lawsuit. Taking your claim to court is sometimes the best or only option to win. When a settlement cannot be reached, our Tampa car accident lawyers will be prepared to take your case to court.
Types of Car Accident Claims
Most car accidents happen because of negligence, which is the failure to exercise a certain level of caution while operating a vehicle. The Tampa car accident lawyers, along with your insurance company, will conduct a preliminary investigation to identify whether you were negligent or not.
