Individuals involved in a motor vehicle collision will likely have contact with and/or hire a car accident lawyer to guide them through the maze of the legal system at some point in time. When motor vehicle accident victims hire a lawyer to assist them in obtaining compensation to which they may be entitled, they become entwined in an adversarial system. Most clients will not have had any experience with this system and will not understand its subtle and not so subtle nuances. A very common initial perception among clients is that ultimately everything will work out satisfactorily because they are insured under a policy. Clients quickly learn that simply because there is an insurance policy available to potentially pay them compensation, this does not mean that compensation will be paid. There are many hurdles that the car collision victim must overcome to obtain compensation. Insurance companies are in the business of making money. They owe a duty to their owners and shareholders to do what is in the best interest of the insurance company. Compensation is not paid out “just because” a person is involved in a motor vehicle accident. When injury victims begin to deal with the insurance companies and the legal system, they quickly learn that it is sometimes best to hire a legal professional who can advocate on their behalf and ensure their legal rights are protected.
How to Choose the Right Car Accident Lawyer
Many motor vehicle accident victims have little idea how to choose the right lawyer to represent them. However, care must be taken to hire the right lawyer because motor vehicle accident cases require specific expertise. The family lawyer who helped the client with his or her house purchase and/or Will may not be the best lawyer to take on the collision claim. Most motor vehicle accident clients are involved in the health care system
before their involvement with the legal system begins. This affords the clients an opportunity to ask questions of experts in the health care system such as physicians, doctors, and others about reputable and experienced lawyers who handle these kinds of cases. If you are thinking about hiring a lawyer and are unsure of which to choose, consider meeting with different firms and asking them some important questions to finalize a choice. Here are some basic questions you may want to consider asking an attorney before agreeing to hire them for your car accident case:
- How long has the lawyer been practicing law?
- How many personal injury cases has the lawyer handled?
- what is the lawyer’s success rate?
- Does the lawyer have the time to take on the case?
- Is the lawyer easy to contact?
- How does the lawyer calculate fees and when will they have to be paid?
