If you were not at fault in a car accident, you may still encounter legal problems that require the help of an attorney. Many people think that because they called the police and their insurance company after an accident, everything will work itself out. Unfortunately, that is not typically the case. It is always a good idea to hire a personal injury lawyer to represent you if you have been in a crash, even if you were not at fault.
The first thing you should know is that the other driver’s insurance company is going to do everything it can to prove you were at fault. If they fail, they will try to minimize the amount they pay out for damages. This is simply the nature of the claim process. Insurance companies want to pay as little as possible, and unfortunately, many are even willing to be dishonest about the process.
Having a professional in your corner is a powerful thing, and can offer great peace of mind. A personal injury attorney can determine how much compensation you deserve. This goes beyond just damage to your car, although that is part of it. If you were hurt in an accident, you are entitled to have your medical bills paid, as well as financial costs or losses that result from your injuries (time lost from work, pain and suffering, and so forth). The other party’s insurance company will fight tooth and nail to pay you as little as possible. Your attorney will work to ensure you receive the full compensation you are entitled to receive.
Your attorney is also going to gather evidence to help prove your case. This will include police reports, photos or surveillance footage, medical records, and witness statements. A good personal injury lawyer will then use that evidence to prove the other party was at fault, and you are entitled to receive full compensation according to the law in Arizona.
Here is an important question to ask yourself: Who is really on your side after an accident? If your own insurance company wants to pay as little as possible, and the other party’s insurance company wants to pay as little as possible, then you do not have anyone looking out for you!
