Can an Attorney Help Me Get a Better Car Accident Settlement?

Sadly, serious automobile collisions are an all-too-common occurrence in Michigan. For example, in 2022, Michigan State Police reported 70,281 injuries from traffic crashes, with over 20% of those (15,682) occurring in Wayne County alone. In addition, approximately 1,123 people died in car accidents in 2022 in the Mitten state, with the largest numbers being in Wayne County (216) and Oakland County (79). 

If you or a loved one was involved in a car wreck and suffered a serious injury, you should strongly consider contacting an experienced car accident injury attorney. Why? Because claimants with legal representation often receive a larger settlement from their accident and may recover a more substantial amount of damages. There are several reasons for this, which we’ll address in this post. To discuss the potential value of your specific injury claim, contact our team to request a free consultation. 

Legal Strategy and Planning

Experienced personal injury attorneys do much more for their clients than file legal paperwork; they act as advocates and strategic consultants. A skilled attorney understands how to determine an appropriate settlement for your case, taking into consideration things like long-term medical needs.

An experienced attorney can also help identify all liable parties in an accident. For example, take the case of a traffic accident that occurs at a four-way stop sign. Because one of the stop signs is obscured by trees, another driver misses it and plows into you. You may be eligible to sue the driver who ran the stop sign, but you may also consider taking legal action against a local government entity if negligent maintenance allowed the signage to become obstructed. A knowledgeable injury attorney can help you identify any and all negligent behavior that contributed to your accident.

Building Your Case By Collecting and Presenting Evidence

If you are seriously injured in an accident, you likely have enough on your plate just trying to stay afloat financially while trying to make a full recovery physically. You probably do not have the time to invest in contacting any witnesses, speaking to the police, reviewing the accident report, contacting local businesses to see if they have video surveillance footage of the accident, and so forth. An attorney is ready and able to complete these tasks to help build a compelling case for you.

Lawyers Know How to Handle Insurance Companies

In most auto accident cases, financial recovery is obtained by filing a claim with an auto insurance company representing the reckless driver. Insurance claims adjusters are particularly good at trying to shortchange unsuspecting, unrepresented claimants by making low-ball settlement offers. An attorney representing you will help ensure you receive maximum compensation.
