Do I need a car accident lawyer to file a claim?
There have been times where people have been seriously injured in auto accidents and they don’t get a lawyer involved for a long time. They say, “Why do I need a lawyer?” Well, because the insurance company for the vehicle that may have hit you are not thinking about your best interest. They’re thinking about their best interests and how they can save money on the claim. We’ve had cases where insurance carriers reach out to clients early on and offer them a minimal settlement, even though they may have been seriously injured. You need a lawyer to protect your rights. There are certain time limitations in doing certain things, and we talk sometimes about no-fault applications. Also if you’re hit by a municipal vehicle, you have even shorter time limits to file a claim. Usually there’s a 90-day limitation on filing a notice of claim, and then you only have a year and 90 days to file an action.
If you wait to get a lawyer involved, you’re hurting your chances of getting your full recovery. If you don’t get a lawyer involved, you’re not making sure that the case is investigated properly, and a properly investigated case leads to better recovery.
