Why Should I Hire A Car Accident Lawyer?

By Keith Stachowiak on October 27, 2016 // Leave a Comment

MP_blog_car-accident-image.jpgWhen you are involved in a car accident, the last thing on your mind is hiring a lawyer to help you. You may only have minor injuries (to start) and you may consider just calling your insurance company to determine your next steps. 

What you may not know, however, is that insurance companies are hoping you do just that. Don't think about hiring an attorney and take a really low monetary offer to help you manage expenses, medical bills and lost wages. 

Milwaukee car accident lawyers work on many different and varied cases every day, and their experience combined with their knowledge of the law makes hiring an attorney following the events of an accident a necessary step to get the justice you deserve.

How Can An Attorney Help?

In general, hiring an attorney to represent you provides your case with credibility. Our team of lawyers are well versed in the law, and will be able to identify whether or not you have a strong case.  Some cases are more complicated than others, and legal representation will help identify what aspects of your situation can strengthen your case.

In addition to the law, experienced attorneys know how to interact with insurance companies to make sure that you are fairly compensated for any bills, repair costs or wage loss following an event. They know how to interact with insurance adjusters to make sure your needs are covered.

An experienced lawyer will also provide advice on the legal process, including what you should expect as your legal case begins. Too often cases are settled out of court, leaving the plaintiff unfairly compensated.  

A locally based car accident lawyer can help you navigate through a complicated legal system, and work to make sure insurance companies do not take you for a ride. If you believe that you have a case, and are in search of legal counsel, contact us today. 

What Should Expect During Your First Phone Call with A Lawyer?

For our team of lawyers to help you after an accident, we usually start by asking a lot of questions. On that first phone call, we’re simply gathering information about the accident, any injuries and basic insurance information.

Take a look at this short video that explains what you can expect during your first phone call with a lawyer on our team.

After that first phone call, we’ll likely schedule an in-person meeting to gather more detailed information so we can determine the proper next steps for the prospective client, always working in their best interest.
