Dealing with a car accident can be scary and confusing. You may be facing injuries, medical appointments, and a loss of income. You have an essential decision to make: whether or not you should find legal representation. We’ll discuss when to contact an attorney after a car accident.

You Sustained Serious Injuries

Serious injuries from a car accident may mean expensive medical bills and a loss of income if you’re unable to work. If you or anyone involved in the accident suffered serious injuries, an attorney experienced in auto accident cases can help you navigate the complex process of seeking the appropriate compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. 

You Have Long-Term or Permanent Disabilities

Car accidents that result in long-term or permanent disabilities are likely to require ongoing care and future medical expenses. An attorney can work with your medical professionals to assess the long-term consequences of your injuries and pursue compensation that will cover your current and future needs. 

You’re Having Insurance Company Issues

Dealing with insurance companies can be difficult and frustrating, especially if they try to undervalue or deny your claim. If you are having issues with an insurance company, it can be wise to seek legal help. An attorney can negotiate with the insurance company for you and take legal action if necessary. 

There is a Wrongful Death

In the event the car accident results in a wrongful death, it’s essential to contact an attorney. Wrongful death cases involve a complex legal process and emotional distress for the family of the deceased. An attorney can shepherd the surviving family members through that process and help them seek justice and compensation. 

There are Complex Legal Procedures

If the legal procedures involved in your accident are complex and overwhelming, it’s best to consult an attorney. Your attorney can explain what is happening in simple terms and what your rights are and make sure that you meet any required deadlines for filing claims or lawsuits. 

There are Disputes Over Property Damage

Disputes over property damage, like the valuation of your damaged vehicle or disagreements with repair estimates, may require legal assistance. An attorney can help you deal with these issues and make sure you’re fairly compensated for the damage to your property.
