Each year, more than 2 million people are injured or disabled in car accidents across the country. These injuries can range from minor back injuries to more severe and life-changing spinal cord and brain injuries. Yet even minor injuries can cause chronic pain and result in excessive medical expenses and lost time from work. The right Denver car accident attorney can make all the difference in your outcome.
Unfortunately, insurance companies do not always take minor injuries seriously. As such, they often offer accident victims a settlement that is far too low. This settlement rarely covers all of their medical expenses and lost wages. When this occurs, injured accident victims often have little choice but to hire an attorney to represent them. A car accident attorney can negotiate with insurance companies and ensure that you receive the money you need to fully recover—no matter how traumatic your injuries may be.
Yet how do you choose the right car accident attorney? How can you be sure that your attorney will have your best interests in mind?
These are important questions to ask—because who you choose as your car accident attorney will have a huge impact on the amount you are able to recover. Choose the wrong attorney—and you could find yourself stuck with the majority of your medical bills.
So how do you choose the right car accident attorney?
Step 1: Ask friends, family members, and colleagues for recommendations on attorneys that they have used in the past. Be sure that these attorneys have experience negotiating and litigating car accident cases. If you are uncertain where to turn for help, you can always contact your local bar association for a referral.
Step 2: Once you have a list of potential attorneys, contact each attorney, and schedule a free consultation. Meeting with each attorney will enable you to understand how their practice and their fee structures work.
Step 3: Bring all documentation to the consultation, including medical exams, diagnoses, and pictures of damage. This will help your attorney understand your case fully. If you have had any correspondence with the insurance company, be sure to bring copies of that as well.
Step 4: Ask questions and take notes. Ask how their fee structure works. Ask who will take control of your case. And ask how long they anticipate it will take your case to settle.
