Right after an accident, you may not be thinking, “I need to hire a lawyer,” but you need to consider it soon. You may have already been approached by a representative of the person who caused the accident, like an insurance adjuster or a lawyer, offering you a settlement or simply asking for a statement. As you’re lying there, hurt and worried about your recovery, you may not be able to make the best decisions for your claim. A Rockville, MD, accident lawyer can help you in many ways, including talking to that pesky insurance company for you.
What Does A Rockville Accident Lawyer Do?
Accident victims have many legal rights. You have the right to demand compensation from the party that caused the accident, whether it was the other driver, their employer, the municipality responsible for keeping the streets safe to drive, or a mechanic whose faulty repair made your vehicle fundamentally unsafe.
An attorney can investigate your accident and determine if it was caused by someone else’s negligence. If so, such as if the other driver was texting and driving or the county failed to remove dangerous ice and snow from the roads in a timely manner, then they can prepare a case demanding compensation from the negligent party for your losses.
Your Rockville car accident attorney represents your interests, including helping you respond to the other party. You aren’t required to give the other driver’s insurance company a statement, for example – did you know that? Your lawyer can talk to the other party so that nothing you say can be misconstrued as admitting you were to blame for the accident.
Your Attorney Helps You Get Top-Dollar For Your Case
Sometimes, the other party’s insurance company may offer a settlement. If you’re facing mounting medical bills and unsure when you’re going to be able to get back to work, then this money may look like a godsend. However, the money they offer is probably a lot less than your case is truly worth. It may not include the cost of future medical care and likely doesn’t offer much for your pain and suffering.
A Rockville accident lawyer can properly value your case, including an appropriate amount for the pain from your injuries and the emotional trauma the accident caused you. They fight for a higher settlement offer from the insurance company so that you have the money you need for your needs today and anything else you need because of the accident, like modifications to your home or vehicle if you’re injured badly enough.
