The lawyer worked hard to make things right, and within a few short months, my son was in the clear. Read more about legal problems in this blog.

Why Legal Counsel Is Needed After A Car Accident

Being one of the parties in an accident does not mean that it is worth filing a lawsuit, as you might not have a case against the other party. For example, if the accident report was in favor of the other party, it means that the authorities have sufficient evidence that points to you being liable. However, the assumption that is made by the authorities is simply an assumption, as a mistake could have been made that falsely placed liability on you. Due to the various directions that a collision case can go, it is wise to seek counsel from an attorney. If you are confident that the accident was not your fault, an attorney can provide clarification and help you to get compensated.

An Attorney Will Carefully Assess the Accident Report

Due to the accident report containing information that points to you being liable for the accident, an attorney will try to debunk everything that was said against you. For example, if the accident report claims that you hit the other party's vehicle in a certain area, an attorney will figure out how to debunk the claim. He or she might need to visit the area where the collision happened to fully debunk the accident report. The officer that drafted the report might also be investigated to determine if he or she has a history of making false reports or performing negligently in other ways.

You Might Have a Battle with the Insurance Company

If an attorney has determined that you have a case against the other party, he or she will assist with filing an insurance claim. The insurance company might do everything possible to avoid paying you a settlement, especially due to the accident report not being in your favor. Even if the insurance company agrees to pay you money, they might not be fair about the settlement amount. An attorney will be your voice throughout the entire situation and make sure the settlement amount is fair. If the insurance company does not agree with what the attorney is demanding, the case can go to court.

Obtaining Evidence Is a Vital Part of Your Defense

Anytime a legal battle is at hand, evidence is the main thing that determines who has victory in the end. Attorneys are professionals at obtaining evidence and can find evidence that you might not consider on your own. For example, you not only need evidence to prove you did not cause the accident, but also to prove you lost wages, were injured, or any other way you were affected.
