Why Do I Need an Attorney for My Auto Accident?

After you are injured in an auto accident, an attorney can look out for your best interest while pursuing maximum compensation for your injuries. Although you can file a claim on your own, insurance companies tend to offer unfair and inadequate settlements when an attorney is not involved.

Even if the accident was not your fault, you will still have to face the consequences of a serious injury, including:

  • Missed work
  • Lost income
  • Medical bills
  • Physical pain
  • Emotional suffering

When you deal with the insurance company on your own, you will most likely be offered a paltry sum that doesn’t come close to covering your expenses. Also, if the person who caused the accident is an uninsured or underinsured driver, an attorney can help you determine sources of compensation other than the driver’s insurance. If you have automobile insurance, you can make an uninsured motorist claim.

At Walner Law, our attorneys do more than just pursue a check. We support your full recovery by helping you find the medical care you need, and by providing attentive and personalized legal service.
