Benefits of Hiring a Lawyer After a Car Accident

The aftermath of a car accident can be a stressful time. After a crash, make sure you file a police report and exchange insurance information with the other driver. Then, seek care from a medical professional. If you were injured in a car accident, you should contact a car accident attorney to help you receive adequate compensation for your injuries. While using an attorney after a car accident in New York is not required, working with a car accident attorney has many benefits. We discuss the advantages of working with a car accident attorney below.  

Receive reasonable compensation

Due to New York’s “no-fault” insurance law, you will need to contact your insurance to receive funds and assistance after a car accident. If your injuries and damages go above what your insurance will cover and the accident was not your fault, the other driver’s insurance must pay the difference. Often, insurance companies will not pay adequate compensation for your injuries, attempting to give you the least amount possible. A car accident attorney will help negotiate on your behalf and ensure you get fair compensation. This could include money for lost wages, medical expenses, a rental car, or vehicle replacement. A car accident attorney can help you receive the compensation you may be entitled to after an accident. 

Negotiate with insurance companies

Major insurance companies have large legal teams who deal with car accident claims daily. Insurance companies want to pay car accident victims as little as possible. The personal injury attorney Max Adler at the Buffalo Injury Law Firm has handled many car accident cases and understands the tactics insurance companies use to try to under-compensate car accident victims. We will help you negotiate with the other driver’s insurance company to ensure adequate compensation for your injuries. 

Contingency fee arrangement

Our lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning that you only pay if you receive compensation after your case is closed. If you do not receive payment from the lawsuit, you do not need to pay. This means there is little risk for choosing to work with us. 

Quicker claim processing 

Car accident claims can take years to process. If you are attempting to receive compensation for your injuries by processing your claim on your own, it can take even longer. One wrong piece of paperwork can delay the case even further. A car accident attorney will help you keep up with all the necessary documentation and paperwork related to your case to make the claim process go as quickly as possible.

Prove negligence

Receiving some types of compensation after an accident depends on proving that other drivers were negligent in operating their vehicles. A car accident attorney will investigate the accident and help gather evidence about the events of the accident to prove whether the at-fault driver was negligent, helping you receive the compensation you deserve.
