There are many complications you may encounter after a car accident, especially when it comes time to deal with the insurance company. It’s difficult to understand what to expect when you’re dealing with an insurance company that is often more focused on their own profits over your well-being.
In these situations, it’s wise to have a lawyer on your side. Not only is it a good idea, it’s your legal right to have representation on your side to help you through this process and protect you from the actions of the insurance company. Here’s why it’s so important.
The Insurance Company Wants You to Say the Wrong Thing
Insurance companies will often look for any problems in your statements and reports that they can use against you. They’ll call you quickly to try and get a recorded statement, even after you have already reported the accident and provided your initial statement.
With a lawyer on your side, you have strong counsel and protection that helps you and prevents you from having to provide multiple recorded statements, where the goal of the insurance company is simply to try to get you to say something slightly different in one statement than what you may have said in an earlier statement.
The Insurance Company Takes Advantage of a Vulnerable Situation
The insurance company knows that this is a difficult time for you. It’s a time when you are suffering from an injury, dealing with medical bills, unable to work, trying to get your vehicle repaired, worrying about a rental vehicle, and more. As such, they feel as though they can take advantage of your unfortunate situation.
Having legal counsel during this time can level the playing field and help you safeguard your rights. An attorney can help you see where a settlement offer may be insufficient and advise you with regard to whether you should accept the offer or pursue additional compensation.
