Welcome back to our four-part series on a few of the primary areas of practice in personal injury law. It is important to note, that representation at Hastings & Hastings is by no means limited to these four specific areas of practice. Simply, these are four areas of practice in which we are often asked questions.
In our last post, we looked closely at wrongful death lawsuits. We answered what a wrongful death lawsuit is, how we go about proving fault/liability, and what damages are associated with wrongful death lawsuits.
Today, we will be taking a closer look at one of the most common areas of personal injury law – car accidents.
Why do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer if I Have Been in a Car Accident?
Car accidents are unfortunately frequent and often car accident victims believe they do not need legal representation. They believe that matters following the accident will be straightforward and that their insurance provider will manage everything. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case.
Car accident victims almost always suffer injuries ranging from broken bones, concussions, whiplash, soft tissue injuries, and even open wounds. Accident victims deserve to receive financial compensation for their pain, suffering, and hardship.
The resolution of the events following a car accident involve a large number of parties and quickly become complex. Just at the scene of the accident, the parties involved will include everyone involved in the accident, law enforcement officials, medical professionals, witnesses, and more. Soon, multiple insurance adjusters may become involved, not to mention mechanics, doctors and more.
The primary reason to retain the services of a personal injury lawyer following a car accident is to have someone on your side, fighting for your rights as you move through all of this mess. A personal injury lawyer will help you navigate the legal process, protect your rights, and see that you receive the compensation you deserve.
