Suing a negligent driver, by no means, is the only reason that you should consider contacting a car accident lawyer. A car accident lawyer can also handle insurance claims that are proving to be far more difficult than ought to be the case. There are some instances where insurance companies become convinced that they do not need to pay out on a claim when that is not at all the case. If you're in any of the following situations, consider contacting a lawyer.
The Company Falsely Claims You Were at Fault
Insurance companies, for obvious reasons, are much more likely to listen to their own adjusters than they are to you. Sometimes, the people who investigate car accidents on behalf of insurance companies simply get things wrong. Unfortunately, it can be very difficult for a claimant to persuade an insurance company that the investigator isn't seeing the truth of the situation. Attorneys have their own investigators and, because of that, they can give you some leverage when dealing with these situations.
The Company Claims You Were Not Covered
Sometimes, insurance companies will try to claim that a particular situation that led to you being injured or suffering a great deal of property damage was not a situation under which you had coverage. What an attorney can do in these situations is serve as a contract expert. They understand the obligations that insurance companies have to their clients and, because of that, the attorney can make certain that the insurance company cannot falsely claim that you were not covered. If the damage occurred in a situation that was under the terms of your coverage, the attorney will most certainly figure that out.
Not Enough Compensation
Insurance companies may also not give you as much compensation as you justly have coming because of an accident. Again, lawyers can help you in these situations.
Attorneys know enough about car accidents, insurance contracts and all of the other factors involved to make certain that you get competent representation and that your rights are respected. If an insurance company is going out of their way to avoid paying you money that you are owed, make certain that you speak with an attorney about the matter. They have a much better chance of getting an insurance company to honor their contract and to provide you with the compensation that you deserve than you do on your own.
