What does a car accident lawyer do?

You have been hurt in a car accident. You know that the incident was not your fault. You now have medical bills and long-term disability concerns. You have been told to hire an attorney, but what does a car accident lawyer do? Why is this person worth the investment of your time and money?

If you have been in a car accident, set up a consultation with a skilled Lafayette car accident lawyer to discuss your case. We do not charge you anything for this consultation, and we can answer any questions you have. This is the best way to learn a bit more about what you can expect from us.

Why do I need a lawyer after a car accident?

There are some minor car accidents in which you do not need to have an attorney by your side simply because there is little damage and the insurance company for the responsible party is willing to work with you. That is rarely the case with more challenging cases where there is more loss on the table.

Hiring a car accident attorney provides you with several benefits:

  • You know what your rights are under the law.
  • You never have to feel bullied or abused by the insurance company of the other driver.
  • There are fewer risks that you could say or do something that could jeopardize your case.

You get results. At our law firm, if we do not help you to win your case, you do not pay us anything for our legal services. That should provide you with peace of mind going forward.

How we help our clients navigate their legal options

So, what do we do as your car accident lawyer? There are several ways we work to stand out in helping you to get the compensation owed to you.

We help you determine who is at fault

Fault is not always just the other driver. It may be the other driver’s employer or the company that failed to load a truck properly. We want to ensure we fully understand all of the people responsible for your losses. We work to understand why the accident occurred as well, including what circumstances caused the accident to happen.

We help you calculate your losses

Most of the time, the losses our clients have are far more than just medical bills. You may have lost time at work, or you may not be able to go back to do the work you used to do because of your long-term injuries and losses. In some situations, you may have chronic pain, and you likely suffer pain. These are all potential damages that you may be able to recover.

We handle communication with the insurance company and will go to trial if necessary

Whenever possible, we work to negotiate and settle your case with the insurance company. Doing this helps to save you time and frustration. However, there are many cases in which we cannot come to an agreement that is fair to you. In that case, our attorneys will seek out compensation through a trial. Going to court for our clients is critical to protecting their future.
