I was recently injured when a drunk driver crashed into me. The medical bills are piling up and I haven’t been able to go back to work yet. I know I need to hire an auto accident lawyer, but I’ve never had to do this before and I’m worried about what it might cost. I live in Mobile, Alabama and don’t make a lot of money.
Automobile accidents raise a lot of questions.
Who will pay for the damage to my car?
Will I get a rental vehicle?
Who will pay my medical bills and when?
What about lost wages?
Hiring a personal injury lawyer can help ease the stress and confusion involved with handling an insurance claim.
Lawyers do most of the legwork.
There is a lot of information needed to prepare a claim for settlement, including police reports, witness statements, medical records and bills, and lost wage information. Gathering the necessary evidence to support a claim can be difficult and time-consuming. An attorney has the experience and resources available to gather all required information as quickly as possible, and to prepare your claim for settlement negotiations.
Drunk driving accidents can secure more compensation.
In a case involving a drunk driver, an experienced attorney will gather further evidence to support your claim, including arrest and court records for the drunk driver. In addition to compensation for medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering, your lawyer will seek additional compensation, or punitive damages, due to the drunk driver’s conduct.
An experienced personal injury attorney will have handled hundreds of car accident cases, and dealt with many insurance companies and claims adjusters. Your attorney will be your advocate throughout the entire process, and will know the best strategy to successfully resolve your claim. Should a lawsuit have to be filed, your attorney will know the relevant laws and procedural rules that apply to the facts of your case, and will prepare your case for trial.
