Being in a car wreck is a confusing time, especially if you are not sure of your rights. The first thing to know is that you have the right to receive medical treatment, and to fully recover from your injuries. If you are unable to reach a full recovery, you are allowed to ask for compensation for the difference in your condition now as opposed to before the accident took place. In order to seek compensation, you will need to determine which party caused the wreck. To do this, you should look to the factors that led up to the accident and identify acts or omissions directly causing the crash. Acting in a way that is outside generally accepted standards for driving, or failing to so act, is referred to as negligence and it is the negligent driver that is held accountable for the damages caused by a wreck.
If all of this sounds complicated, don’t worry, there are qualified professionals who can help you reach a full recovery and be fully compensated for your injuries. Three reasons to hire a personal injury attorney include:
- A knowledgeable attorney will know how long you have left to file a case. If you do not file by a certain time, you are not allowed to do so later. Failing to file a case can eliminate or decrease your ability to recover.
- Skilled personal injury attorneys have experience investigating the facts and presenting them in a light most favorable to your position when trying to reach a settlement, or when trying your case to a jury.
- A qualified personal injury attorney will know how to initiate a claim with the insurance company for the negligent driver, and what forms of persuasion work best when negotiating on your behalf.
