If you’ve been involved in a motor vehicle accident, your first priority should always be to ensure that your medical concerns are taken care of. It is then always important to consider the legal ramifications. A personal injury lawyer can be an excellent resource to help you navigate the complicated outcomes.

When Should I Call a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Once you have received the proper medical care, you should contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. The quicker you are able to connect with a personal injury lawyer, the faster you’ll be able to get started on the necessary legal procedures.

To be clear, we recommend that you speak with a lawyer any time you are injured in an accident, no matter whose fault, no matter the situation, no matter the severity of the injury. Even if we ultimately cannot assist you, we can at least explain the complicated systems to you and let you make an informed decision about what is best for you and your family moving forward.

What Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Assist Me With?

There are many situations that a personal injury lawyer can help you with if you’ve been involved in a car accident. While the following list is not exhaustive, it provides a general overview to the ways in which a personal injury lawyer can help assist your case.

  1. Injuries to Drivers or Passengers

If the motor vehicle accident was severe enough to cause significant injuries to any individuals involved, a personal injury lawyer will most likely be necessary. Quickly healed injuries such as scrapes and bruises don’t necessarily call for a lawyer's assistance. However, severe injuries like traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord trauma may require a lawyer’s expertise to fight for the fair injury classification and appropriate compensation.

  1. Confusion Regarding the Claims Process

The insurance claims process can be overwhelming at the best of times, let alone when you’ve just been involved in a car accident. It’s easy to make small mistakes that could put your claim at stake. An experienced Beckett lawyer can help you with the complex forms and processes to ensure that your claim is completed properly and in a timely manner.

  1. Insurance Company Denies Your Claim

Insurance companies have countless resources at their disposal that may result in attempts to deny your claim. If this happens, it’s a good idea to connect with a personal injury lawyer. They have the knowledge and experience to fight for fair compensation and defend your legal rights.
