A ‘simple’ car crash is a serious event that brings together a lot of people, from the car owner, the police, the judicial system, and the insurance firms. What a bandwagon.
Insurance is a delicate area that needs the touch of an expert on the job and when it comes to car crash insurance it involves a lot of intricate policies that the insurance company has hidden which you the car owner will not understand. But not so with a lawyer, who knows all the ropes and how to twist and turn the bends.
The insurance companies will do anything within the law to reduce the amount the victim is to be paid. Most times they blame the driver of such cars, citing negligence on their part. When such occurs it is best left to a competent lawyer to deal with the insurance firm, so that proper compensation can be paid to the victim(s).
One thing a car crash victim should avoid is taking the law into their own hands and going forward to try and do self representation. It may sound good at the first instance but the application of such laws as stated in the policy guidelines may turn against you. That is the reason lawyers are specially trained to handle such matters. It will do you well to observe that insurance firms have the interest of there company at heart and will do all at there disposal not to pay full or partial claims, hence you can be misled into collecting what is not worth the amount of loss suffered.
It is a proven fact that victims who went solo in filing for claims for their car crash compensation have come out short paid or better still underpaid by the insurance companies, this is a far cry from those that a highly sought after or well trained car crash lawyer handled their case with a compensation of two or thrice the amount insured been paid by the insurance companies.
Yes car crash lawyers are on the high side, hence the reason why many back out of hiring them. But they still remain the best bet in helping you get that car crash compensation from the insurance company. Chances are that if you go it alone you may end up been short changed and under valued, but with the help of a good skilled lawyer you get full rights and can even buy another car better than the one that crashed. How about that?
