Chances are high that you will be involved in some sort of traffic accident at some point in your driving career. In fact, over 25% of all drivers are involved in a wreck in any given 5-year period. Many of these accidents result in the injury of at least one of the drivers or passengers, and some even cause death.
It is the aftermath of an accident that can be difficult to deal with. Many people believe that recovering losses due to a Lancaster car crash is as easy as calling the insurance adjuster and waiting for a check to come in the mail. It usually is not this easy. If it is, you most likely are not getting the compensation you deserve. In fact, there are instances where the insurance doesn’t even pay enough to cover all of the damages.
Many choose to forego the benefits of using an experienced attorney to settle their claim. But, studies have shown that using a lawyer generally pays out at a much higher rate than not hiring one. A Lancaster car crash lawyer can seek compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Future medical bills
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Past and future wage loss
- Mental anguish
- Pain and suffering
- Any other loss you incurred due to the accident
In many cases, in order to receive the full compensation deserved, one must provide certain documentation to prove the value of the claim. Without legal representation, a victim’s lack of knowledge or inexperience could mean not submitting needed documentation to support your claim. An experienced attorney will make sure you have the following documentation to back your case:
- Witness statements
- Accident report
- Medical records
- Expert testimonies
Don’t make the mistake of not using an attorney and, in so doing, risk hindering your settlement and receiving less than you deserve. Put the stress and difficulties of trying to reach a settlement on an experienced car crash attorney in Lancaster. An experienced attorney can take the burden off your shoulders.
