Do I need to hire an injury lawyer after an accident?
We recognize that hiring a lawyer may not be the first thing that leaps to your mind after a severe collision. Many people worry about the cost of hiring an attorney but do not consider the cost of not hiring one.
Fact: Having a lawyer on your side will prevent the potential loss of your insurance benefits.
The insurance industry’s research demonstrates the importance of hiring a lawyer. It’s a known fact that an insurance company will pay 3.5 times less on average to an injured victim who is not represented by a lawyer than to a person who is represented.
Fact: Hiring an attorney will help to ensure that you don’t lose critical evidence.
Like anything else in life, waiting to hire an attorney can cause real, meaningful harm to your case. At Roberts & Roberts, we have a “no stone left unturned” investigation policy, which has helped us to discover unlikely, but critical evidence after an accident, such as a faulty seat belt or defective airbag inflator that, if working correctly, would have saved the life of the accident victim or victims.
Keep in mind that insurance companies react quickly to start their investigation of the collision, allowing them more situational control over your case. Moreover, critical evidence may get lost or destroyed. That’s why it’s essential to hire a lawyer to preserve evidence that supports your claim.
How does a personal injury lawyer get paid?
You only pay after you win! In other words, we do not get paid for your case until and unless you do.
Put simply; we work on a percentage of your ultimate recovery. If we don’t win, then you don’t owe us anything. We believe this is the best system for making sure our clients have access to justice after an accident.
Even better, we take care of everything after an accident. Unlike some firms, we are a “full service” law firm. In other words, we deal directly with the insurance companies, handle your vehicle damage claim and rental vehicle, send our in-house investigators directly to the scene, and more.
What should I do if I’ve been in a car accident?
After a car crash, your priority should be to seek medical treatment for yourself and other victims. At Roberts & Roberts, we recognize that any automobile accident injury, including what may seem like a minor injury, can disrupt your life and make it difficult to work.
An injury can make it hard to provide for your family and affect your enjoyment of life. Many injuries require weeks or months of rehabilitative therapy and extended time off work.
After a severe injury, you may be admitted to the East Texas Medical Center, the UT Health Science Center emergency room, Mother Frances Hospital, Longview Regional Medical Center or other nearby area hospitals. If you aren’t taken to the ER, you should visit your doctor and describe what happened, even if you don’t feel injured. Some types of auto accident injuries such as concussions are not immediately apparent.
Also, you should report the accident to the police and wait for them to arrive (learn more about how to interpret your crash report). Be sure to get the names of the other drivers and their insurance information. Also, write down contact information from any eyewitnesses. Use your phone or camera to take photographs of the accident scene if you’re able. Take a picture of the license plate of the other vehicles involved.
It’s important to report the accident to your insurance company as soon as possible. However, you should not give a recorded or written statement until you have consulted with a qualified Texas personal injury attorney.
If an insurance adjuster contacts you about settling your claim, don’t make a statement or sign any documents without first speaking with an experienced attorney. The insurance adjuster’s job is to make your claim go away as cheaply as possible. By signing a bad settlement agreement, you may prevent yourself from recovering the compensation you are due.
Here is a brief checklist on what to do after an auto accident.
It’s not necessary to hire a legal pro after every car wreck. However, you should always consult with an experienced legal professional after a car accident.
