WHY YOU NEED A BOARD CERTIFIED PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY IF YOU ARE INJURED IN AN AUTO ACCIDENT
If you are injured in an auto accident because of the negligence of others, there are good reasons you should hire a board-certified personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
While you are laid up in pain, the insurance company for the negligent driver that caused your personal injury will have professional investigators and lawyers immediately begin working to prevent you from being justly compensated for your injury. They will be contacting witnesses, investigating police officers, photographing the vehicle damage, and trying to get a recorded statement from you.
You need someone looking after your best interests by gathering all the relevant evidence to prove your entitlement to recover damages and to document your damages. You will benefit from knowing all the various insurance that is available to pay for your damages.
You will benefit from guidance to make sure injuries receive adequate documentation of proper medical attention, diagnosis, and treatment from qualified physicians. Too many victims procrastinate, and later learn long delays in getting diagnosis and treatment creates doubt about whether they were injured in the auto accident, or elsewhere.
When you are in pain with physical limitations, and a physician is not adequately documenting your condition, the negligent driver’s insurance company will use the lack of such documentation to claim you were not injured or that your injury is minimal. You need to understand what evidence is important and how the presentation of the evidence is important to help you get a fair settlement.
