If I’ve Been in An Accident, Do I Need a Lawyer?

Without hiring a lawyer, you could lose out on compensation. But, with that said, there is no set answer because each car accident is different and distinct in its own way.

When you’ve been in a car accident, you have a lot on your mind. The foremost thing is most likely the injuries that you suffered and how they get better. But, in addition to that, an auto accident brings a host of other questions. Those questions could be like: “Who is at fault?” “Who pays for the damage to the car?” “Who will pay the medical bills?” “What happens if you miss work?” “Do you get paid for those lost wages?”

That’s one reason why you might want to talk to an attorney. A Reno car accident lawyer, experienced in handling auto vehicle accidents, can be very helpful in navigating through this process. Hiring a lawyer to represent you after a car accident means that you have somebody working for you who knows how to do this, knowledge about the law and procedural rules that affect your case or your potential case, or your claim with the insurance company.

There is a lot of work that goes into negotiating with an insurance company. Having a lawyer who is knowledgeable in how an insurance company should act and has experience negotiating with an insurance company brings a lot of value into the case after your auto accident situation.
