Why You Need an Attorney After a Serious Accident?

car accident claimWhen you get seriously injured in an accident that was caused by the negligence of another party, you may have rights under the law. You need to make sure that you take every necessary step to protect these rights so you don’t end up paying for someone else’s careless actions and behavior. In some cases, it may even be necessary to file a lawsuit against the at fault party. This is exactly why you need to hire an experienced personal injury attorney to protect your legal rights and ensure that you obtain the full compensation that you deserve.

This article discusses the top reasons why you need to hire a lawyer after an accident.

5 Reasons Why You Should Hire an Accident Attorney

Below are five important reasons why you should hire an accident attorney:

  1. You only have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit. Every state has its own time limit (known as the statute of limitations) for filing an accident claim or lawsuit after an accident.
  2. You may need to comply with certain rules. In some cases, you may need to take certain actions before you can file a lawsuit. For example, in most government claims, you will need to file a claim with the government agency within a specific time period before being able to sue that agency in state court.
  3. You may need help finding the right medical providers for your injuries. If you have never been seriously injured, you may not know what type of medical treatment you need. Although an attorney cannot provide you with medical treatment, he can provide guidance as to which types of doctors you may need to seek treatment.
  4. Proving liability may be difficult. Even if the police report is in your favor and you have eyewitnesses, the opposing party may still deny liability. There are many elements that go into proving a personal injury claim and obtaining a favorable outcome. An experienced attorney will have the knowledge and resources to prove your case and ensure that you obtain the full compensation that you deserve for your injuries.
  5. You need to understand your settlement options. Most cases settle without going to court and a lengthy litigation process. This means that the at-fault party or his insurance carrier will likely make you a reasonable offer before you file suit. An experienced attorney will understand the implications of accepting an offer. He will help you properly evaluate and value your claim so that you don’t accept an offer that you may later regret.

Client Testimonials

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
