Why Do You Need a Car Accident Lawyer?
If your car accident resulted in minor property damage worth less than $5,000 and no injuries, you may not need the services of a New York car accident lawyer. In most situations retaining a car accident lawyer will benefit your case by:
- Providing honest counsel, so you can determine whether you should proceed through insurance or file a lawsuit.
- Investigating the factors leading to the crash, uncovering crucial facts and ascribing any third party liability.
- Interviewing eyewitnesses, bystanders, and defendants, procuring expert witnesses to testify on your behalf.
- Paying all upfront filing fees and litigation costs up front; ensuring that all appropriate deadlines are met.
- Fighting tenaciously against insurers for maximum compensation during settlement negotiations.
- Building a strong, persuasive case to go before judge and jury.
- Overcoming defense appeals, objections, and blame games that seek to tarnish your reputation.
- Holding defendants accountable for paying their court-ordered settlement or award in-full, on-time.
The likelihood of success and amount of money you receive will depend upon the severity of the crash, the property damage, the number of people injured, the severity of the injuries, proof of negligence, the trustworthiness of your story, and the reputation of your selected legal team. Our car accident attorneys have secured millions of dollars for our clients. Contact us to find out what we can do for you and your loved ones.
