Can I Move Forward Without a Lawyer?

The Gatti Law Firm

man signing legal documentsThe common misconception many people have is that they’re able to go through the car accident claim process without legal help. While some situations may be easier to handle, and you can get through it on your own, some situations require a better understanding of the law.

For instance, in a small accident where you only suffer minor property damage, you may file a claim and get what you need. In other situations, though, the insurance company is looking to protect their bottom line. In these cases, a lawyer proves to be beneficial in numerous ways.

A Lawyer Understands the Insurance Company’s Tactics

Many insurance companies hope that you’ll try to go through a claim on your own. If you have never identified tactics that insurance companies use to limit compensation, you wouldn’t recognize it happening to you.

With a lawyer on your side, you can understand ways insurance companies will try to take advantage of your rights. Your lawyer brings a powerful presence on your side, and most insurance companies won’t even try denying your rights when you have someone with legal experience on your side.

A Lawyer Helps You Seek Maximum Compensation

One of the most common mistakes you can make when filing a claim alone is not recognizing the full scope of your losses. You may only file a claim to get your vehicle fixed, but you may not consider other expenses that you incurred, or that you may still incur.

A lawyer puts together your case with all damages in mind. You can pursue maximum compensation with a lawyer on your side, factoring in the following:

  • Expenses associated with medical care, medication, specialized equipment, etc.
  • Expenses associated with property damage, such as totaling your vehicle
  • Expenses associated with being unable to work, including past and future wages and benefits

Your lawyer can help explain what options you have to get the outcome you need.
