How A Lawyer Can Help After A Car Accident

Obviously, there is a big difference between a fender bender and serious car crash that puts you in the hospital. You don’t need a lawyer to oversee a minor repair of your vehicle. But when serious injury or even death is involved, getting a skilled lawyer on your side is critical. You don’t want to have an insurance company or some other party take advantage of you, leaving you without the compensation you deserve.

That is why, at Sbrogna, Brunelle & Donius, LLP, we offer a free initial consultation for you to discuss your situation with one of our experienced attorneys. Please complete our contact form or give us a call at 508-809-7555 to discuss your specific situation. With offices in Worcester and Milton, we serve clients across the Commonwealth.

Resolving Insurance Issues

Let’s start with the issue of insurance in car accident cases. If you were in an accident, you may very well have already exchanged insurance information with the other driver.

Don’t make the mistake, however, of thinking the insurance adjusters will always take care of everything in an even-handed way. Even your own adjuster doesn’t work for you; he or she works for your insurance company, which has a financial incentive to minimize the amount it pays out to you or to others on your behalf.

This is why you should be wary if you are offered a quick settlement after a car crash. Getting a lawyer involved can help you protect your interests.

A lawyer can also be of help if the other party was uninsured or underinsured. In that setting, it may be necessary to make the case to your own insurance company as to why it should pay out on the uninsured/underinsured (UIM) coverage under your own policy.

Liability Issues Regarding Comparative Fault

It also is good to get an attorney involved when it is clear that liability may be in dispute. In many accidents, more than one driver is at fault. It will be important to establish what percentage of fault each bears by making a thorough investigation.

An experienced attorney can assist with this and make sure your rights are vindicated throughout the process.

Taking Action

Don’t let your guard down just because an insurance adjuster is on the scene. Give us a call to discuss your case in a confidential consultation with an attorney experienced in handling car accident cases: 508-809-7555. Or, if you prefer, complete our contact form. We can help.
