Representing the Voice of the Injured

4 Times When You Need to Hire a Car Accident Attorney

In the state of California, 3,000 car accidents occur yearly. Given such statistic, it’s essential that you are prepared for the aftermath of a car crash even before it occurs. As such, let’s take a look at four times when you absolutely will require a car accident attorney, and why.

By knowing why a car accident attorney is essential, you will know exactly how to relieve a large portion of your stress during a car accident case without doing anything but hiring a local attorney to represent you.

1. The Accident Led to a Serious Injury or Fatality

If the car accident you were in led to a serious injury or fatality – whether it was your fault or not – you will need to hire an attorney. This is because such a case is far more serious than a simple car damage or minor injury case would be. Furthermore, you will want an attorney to prove your innocence or excuse your actions, as well as reduce your fines and possibly request compensation for your injuries. An attorney, then, will be crucial to making your case as valid as possible.

2. The Accident Was Clearly Your Fault

The next situation in which you should absolutely hire a car accident attorney is when the accident was clearly your fault. Just as with anything in life, mistakes happen on the road and, although you may now know your mistake, you will definitely want someone to represent you and prove your regret in the courthouse.

Therefore, if the car accident was caused by you or if you did the most damage, hiring a car accident attorney is vital.

3. Attorneys Have Been Hired on the Other Side

Attorneys can be found on every side. When the car accident is serious, you will likely find that the opposite side hired an attorney, and you will definitely want to do the same. If you don’t, you could be facing professionals as a complete rookie and be requesting compensation that they will be able to easily reject. However, with an attorney on your side, you can fight fire with fire and be more likely to win your case.

4. You Have Other Things in Your Life to Focus On

The final reason to hire an attorney is because major car accident cases can take months to be resolved. Given that the process is lengthy and that you might have other priorities, having an attorney do this work is the best way to focus on the important things in your life whilst still having a good case come court day.
