There is never a good time to have to deal with a car accident. Indeed, you know if you have been involved in an auto accident that they are traumatic, sudden experiences that could result in medical bills and, possibly, medical issues for a lifetime. It is no surprise that such an experience can be frustrating, stressful, painful, and emotionally draining.
When you are in that state after an auto accident, particularly if you suffered severe injuries, there is too much to think about – insurance claims, dealing with car repair, and medical issues – to do it all by yourself. Accordingly, in this article, we are going to talk about why hiring a personal injury attorney after a car accident is the smart thing to do.
If after reading this blog, you have additional questions about your own circumstances, we welcome you to contact the seasoned personal injury attorneys at Crary Buchanan. At Crary Buchanan, we are proud of our standard of excellence, which has allowed us to thrive as one of the oldest law firms on Florida’s Treasure Coast.
The Many Benefits to Having a Personal Injury Attorney in Your Corner.
You are likely entitled to compensation when you are injured due to the negligent or reckless conduct of someone else. The compensation to which you are entitled does not stop at just medical bills. The goal with any personal injury case is to get a victim back, as closely as possible, to the position they were in before the accident. Thus, you can receive compensation for lost wages, costs for medication, and even pain and suffering damages.
In order to make sure that you get all of the compensation you deserve, it is important that you have an experienced personal injury attorney by your side. So, what will a personal injury attorney do for you? Your attorney can see to the following things:
1. Investigation. With any legal matter, particularly a car accident case, the surrounding facts and circumstances of the crash can make or break a case. That includes everything from the weather conditions and the police report, to any statements made by the other driver or eyewitnesses. An experienced personal injury attorney will assess all of the facts of the case to make sure that you present the best possible claim for compensation.
2. Physician Reports. Your attorney can also be instrumental in coordinating your medical care, and making sure that all of the proper medical information to support your personal injury claim is available.
3. Of course, Legal Expertise. Just like when you go to the dentist to get your teeth cleaned, an attorney understands the way in which you need to proceed with a personal injury claim both in court, and when dealing with an insurance company before you file a lawsuit in court. You do not want to have difficulty obtaining compensation through a personal injury lawsuit because you get overwhelmed with the necessary legal process that comes with our court systems. Accordingly, an attorney brings a great deal of value, which most likely will translate into a greater damage award for you.
Will an Attorney Help Me Deal with an Insurance Company?
Absolutely. In fact, sometimes the trickiest part in the aftermath of a car accident is dealing with insurance companies. In that regard, having a personal injury attorney in your corner is vital.
As you likely know, the motivation behind private, for-profit, insurance companies is to make as much money as possible by avoiding paying as many claims as possible. When that is the case, an insurance company may find ways in which you receive less than you deserve in compensation for your car accident injury.
A seasoned attorney, however, will be able to interact with the insurance company in an effective way, and marshal all of the necessary information to convince the insurance company that it must provide appropriate compensation for your losses.

Automobile accidents are one of the leading causes of personal injury and wrongful death in the nation. Many factors can contribute to a traffic accident, but the primary reason is negligence. Drivers are negligent in a variety of ways. For example, texting while driving is careless and negligent. In the same way, a driver who falls asleep may be considered negligent as well. When a careless driver causes an accident, the victim can pursue a personal injury claim or lawsuit.
