3 Reasons You Should Hire a Car Accident Attorney, Macon-Bibb, Georgia

After a car crash, most people simply file a claim with an insurance company and wait for a check to arrive in the mail. But there are three reasons why you might want to consider hiring a car accident attorney to represent you after a crash. According to Reynolds, Horne & Survant in Macon, GA, the three most important reasons you should consider hiring a car accident attorney are:

1. It’s Difficult To Prove Negligence On Your Own

Before you can get paid for the losses you suffered in the crash, you need to prove that the other driver’s negligence caused your accident. To prove negligence, you must establish that the other driver breached their duty of care (violated a traffic rule or regulation,) their breach caused the accident, and that you suffered actual damages as a result of the crash. An attorney can help you firmly establish the elements of negligence through eyewitness testimony, accident reconstruction, and expert testimony.  

Auto Accident Lawyer2. Insurance Companies Will Try To Underpay You

Most of the time insurance companies will refuse to pay for any damages of a car accident or, if they do pay, they will severely underpay. An experienced car accident attorney will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf to ensure that you recover the full and fair amount of damages that you deserve.

3. You May Need To File A Claim In Court

If the other driver or their insurance company refuses to pay for the full extent of the damages they caused, such as medical expenses and damage to your vehicle, then you may need to file a claim in court. By working with an accident attorney from the start, you will be able to quickly and easily take your claim to court.
