If you should ever be unfortunate enough to be injured in a car accident through no fault of your own, you would do well to be selecting among auto accident lawyers for representation of your case. You will undoubtedly be suffering from pain and discomfort, loss of time from work, damage to your vehicle, and possible medical bills.
Auto accident lawyers specialize in their line of work and do not practice in any other field of law than litigation on behalf of their clients who are injured in a car wreck. Their fees are based upon the scope of the trauma and injury of their client, and they receive a part of the proceeds. If you do not win the case, they generally are not paid.
Therefore is is of great interest and incentive for them to prevail on your behalf. An auto injury case can be quite involved and detailed legally. Your lawyer will be working against the lawyers of the insurance company of the defendant, and that is why it is silly for anyone to think that they can handle such a situation on their own, if they expect to receive anything other than hello and good bye from the defendant’s insurance company.
Your lawyer will investigate the accident on a second by second basis in order to prove where everyone involved was prior to and up to the impact of the vehicles. In this way it is possible to prove negligence by illustrating the timing and the proximity of the vehicles.
The investigation will include obtaining the police report and the interviewing of eyewitnesses to the accident itself.
In many cases, the litigation is resolved by a settlement from the opponent’s insurance company, but if that does not occur, your attorney will not hesitate to go to court to obtain justice for you.
