Over 3.9 million Emergency Department visits are a direct result of auto accidents yearly, according to statistical data collected by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Most likely you have taken steps to protect yourself and your loved ones in case of a motor vehicle accident by becoming an insured driver. But is that enough?
Being involved in an auto accident can be, at the least, very frightening. Injuries sustained can be a major cause of disruption to your health and lifestyle. Added to the physical challenges that result, often victims of auto accidents find that the insurance policy for which they have paid does not completely protect them from the financial problems of auto injury.
The outcome of an insurance settlement after a car crash can vary widely due to several factors. Because of this uncertainty of outcome, it may be a good idea to consult auto accident lawyers to help you negotiate a reasonable settlement with your insurance company.
Often your settlement can be affected by the quality of the auto accident investigation at the time of the crash. Most often, police professionals at the scene of the accident do little or no independent accident scene assessment or vehicle damage analysis unless a fatality or catastrophic injury has occurred. This is where an auto accident attorney can really help you by knowing exactly which proven accident experts to call to determine exactly what happened and who may be at fault for the accident.
It is important that this be done quickly before your vehicle is salvaged or altered in any way. An attorney specializing in auto accident litigation can help you prepare to prove your side of the case. With solid proof of this sort, the scales of justice are balanced. It is a certainty that your insurance company has a team of experienced litigators acting on its behalf in any settlement discussions. Having a skilled attorney on your side does much to ease the anxiety of negotiation with your insurance company.
