Why you need a lawyer for a car accident with only vehicle damage

When you get into a motor vehicle accident, one of the most important things to do afterward is speak to a personal injury lawyer. An attorney can help you receive fair compensation for your injuries from insurance providers and the responsible motorist.

However, what if you got into an auto accident but only experienced damage to your vehicle, not your body? Even if you did not sustain any injuries, you still need the assistance of a lawyer for the following reasons.

Insurance companies do not want to pay

Even though the claims process may be straightforward enough to handle on your own, you can rely on the insurance companies trying to get out of paying you the amount you deserve based on your coverage and the coverage of the other driver. Attorneys have more experience dealing with insurers and holding them financially accountable so you receive the full value for the damage.

Proving negligence can be challenging

To receive a monetary award, you must prove the fault of the other party. Doing so can be challenging without the right knowledge and sources. Legal teams know what evidence to look for, how to get it and how to present it to your advantage. If you miss evidence or say the wrong thing, you may receive a denial of your claim or lose your lawsuit.

Injuries may turn up later

Most importantly, injuries sometimes take time before manifesting themselves. You may feel fine in the days and weeks that follow, only to suffer sudden symptoms. The most notorious for following this delayed appearance is traumatic brain injuries. This quality makes them easy for a doctor to miss, so you may not get the treatment you need.

It is imperative you seek a medical evaluation after an accident regardless of how you feel. Have an attorney guide your medical care to ensure you have proper documentation should signs of injury show up later and you need to sue.
