Whether you live in Worcester or were passing through on your way to or from Boston, Providence, Hartford or elsewhere, if you were involved in a car accident, hiring a lawyer who knows the local courts and the area’s roads can significantly improve your chances of receiving maximum compensation for your injuries.
Although you may think you can handle your auto accident claim on your own, the truth is that there are numerous factors you may overlook that could end up costing you in the long run. With the counsel and guidance of an experienced, local lawyer, you can feel confident pursuing the compensation you deserve.
The following are four ways a personal injury lawyer can make a difference in resolving your claim:
- What you say can make a difference: After an accident, you may feel compelled to apologize to the other driver or discuss the case with the insurance company. However, your statements could be misconstrued as admitting fault. With an attorney at your side, you can avoid saying anything that could be used against you.
- The insurance adjuster is not your friend: It’s important to remember that the insurance adjuster’s job is to protect the company. Although the adjuster may be quick to offer a settlement, you are likely entitled to far more than the amount presented. Your attorney can help you determine precisely how much you deserve and fight for maximum compensation.
- Local knowledge helps: We know the interstates and other roads crossing Worcester. We know the intersections where accidents commonly happen, the roads with blind curves and areas where drivers tend to speed. This local knowledge can play a significant role in building a strong claim.
- Every dollar matters: Do you know if your injuries will require future medical treatments? Are you confident that the settlement offer from the insurance company will cover all your bills? You attorney can help you remain patient, determine the full extent of your injuries and pursue compensation for immediate and future expenses.
Instead of trying to wrap up your accident claim on your own, why not turn to a personal injury lawyer who can help you obtain the compensation you need to recover?
