Car accident cases are rarely as simple as they seem. Not seeking legal advice is one of the most common mistakes those involved in car crashes make. It may be tempting to keep the process simple and comply with the requests of insurance companies on both sides of the accident, however, this can often backfire. Insurance companies do not have your best interest in mind and will actively work to minimize the severity of property damage, pain and suffering, and injuries in a car accident.
When you work with an experienced car accident lawyer, you will immediately be in a stronger position to get the compensation you truly deserve. Injury attorneys are well versed when it comes to working with insurance companies. Attorney Caruthers has over three decades of experience avoiding the traps insurance adjusters layout in front of car accident victims to pay them less than they deserve.
If you have been involved in an auto accident and are looking for a free consultation from a trusted personal injury attorney, look no further than the Law Office of Beverly R. Caruthers.
What Happens When I Hire An Attorney After A Car Wreck?
After a car accident, once you’ve made the decision to hire an attorney, you’re probably wondering what the first visit will entail. There are two main reasons for this meeting. The first is for the attorney to assess your case. The second is for you to make sure you’re comfortable having this person represent you.
Even if an initial consultation has taken place online or over the telephone, the attorney will not have a full picture of the facts and circumstances surrounding your car accident case until the two of you can sit down and talk.
The first step will involve you explaining the facts of the accident, and the damages you’ve sustained. This conversation will probably be with the attorney, and/or one of the attorney’s representatives, such as a legal secretary or paralegal.
After you’ve provided your story, you’ll answer follow-up questions, such as:
- Have you spoken to any insurance company representatives about the accident? If so, which representatives, and what did you tell them?
- Have you spoken to anyone else about the accident? This can include friends, family members, first responders, and anyone else involved in the accident.
- What car insurance coverage and/or health insurance coverage do you have?
- Were there any witnesses to the car accident, and if so, do you have their contact information?
- You’ll also need to provide any documents you have relating to the accident, such as medical bills, car repair estimates/invoices, photographs, police reports, e-mails and letters from insurance companies (and copies of any insurance claims you’ve filed related to the accident).
Don’t hold back any relevant information about the accident, even if you’re worried that it’s embarrassing or will hurt your case. Even if you haven’t hired the attorney, your first meeting is protected by attorney client privilege. Not to mention that if you withhold information that hurts your case, it will come back to haunt you.
For instance, your attorney may agree to represent you based on the information you’ve provided, but if that information is incomplete, sooner or later the truth will come out, possibly after you and your attorney have spent hundreds of hours preparing the case (and thousands of dollars on expert witnesses and court costs).
