Why You Should Consult with a Mississippi Personal Injury Attorney
Car accidents can bring a whole host of problems into your life, especially when the accident was not your fault. Your car is totaled, your back is sore, maybe you suffered a broken bone or two; whatever the injury, no matter how small or serious, you may encounter financial trouble
Trying to get compensation from an auto insurance company can be quite difficult, but having a personal injury lawyer represent you can often smooth out the process and may result in a more favorable outcome.
Lawyers Working With Lawyers
No matter how big or small of a claim, the insurance company who is processing your claim will have experts working for them, which may include attorneys who specialize in personal injuries involving car accidents. The attorneys working for the insurance company are actively working against your interests, seeking to protect the insurance company from any liability in having to pay out for your injuries. It makes sense to have your own experienced attorney who can work solely to represent your interests in the matter.
Quick Payouts are usually Low Payouts
While it is true that most cases tend to settle outside of court and accepting a settlement may be in your best interest, the first offer from an insurance company is most likely not the best offer that they will make. Many companies will often use to their advantage the fact that claimants may need immediate access to funds and therefore lowball their offer. They do this in the hope that the claimant will just take the quick payout rather than fight for a better offer. An experienced personal injury attorney can fight for a better settlement offer and signal that you are willing to pursue the matter further.
Sometimes there is No Payout
A lowball offer for settlement is better than no settlement at all. Some insurance companies may entirely deny your claim for compensation and assign the fault of an accident to you instead of the other driver. Having a personal injury attorney who is familiar with the workings of insurance companies and their investigative techniques may make an insurance company more likely to be open to a settlement or an approval of your claim.
Representation at Court
If the worst happens and an insurance company refuses to pay, you will most likely end up at court in order to receive any compensation. When this happens, a personal injury attorney will not only guide you through the process of going through trial, but also prepare the evidence, investigate claims, cross examine the other side and represent your case.
