    Auto Accident Injury Attorney

    When someone has been in a car accident, there are some things that they often think that are not true. These are things can often lead to misunderstandings and mistakes with your case.  Below are four of the things that people often think about a case that are untrue.

    You will get rich thanks to your auto accident injury attorney

    This is not going to happen most of the time.  The auto accident injury attorney is going to make sure that you are fairly compensated for your losses and expenses, which includes property damage, lost wages, and medical bills. Judges aren’t dumb. They are not going to award you huge amounts of cash unless you need the money for your medical bills or the negligent party’s acts were really heinous.  So don’t believe that you are going to get a lot of money like you won the lottery.

    You’ll need an auto accident injury attorney for every accident

    This also is not true.  If you’ve got a case that is straight forward and you have minor damages and injuries, chances are that you won’t need an auto accident injury attorney. If there had been really serious injuries, or lots of damage to property, or if there had been questions about the way that the accident happened, it’s usually a good idea to hire an auto accident injury attorney.

    Your insurance company is going to treat you fairly without an auto accident injury attorney

    The truth is that the insurance company’s not going to treat you fairly. They are in the business to make the most money that they can rather than pay out fair amounts to the people who have been injured, and that is why people will hire an auto accident injury attorney.  If you don’t hire an auto accident injury attorney and you try to go it alone, you aren’t going to get the money that you deserve or anywhere near it. Although you may think that hiring an auto accident injury attorney is going to be expensive, since you will more likely get more money with one than without one, you usually will come out ahead.

    You don’t need an auto accident injury attorney

    Even though there are a lot of cases that may not need an attorney, there are also a lot of cases that can be helped by having an attorney. The best thing to do is to evaluate your case and see whether or not it will be helped by having an attorney. Look at the second tip listed above and if you have one of the incidents that are listed there, chances are that you will benefit from having an attorney.
