When to Hire an Automobile Accident Lawyer, Bronx, New York

The aftermath of an automobile accident can be overwhelming and confusing. As such, having the support of an attorney is crucial. These professionals will help you better navigate this often-stressful experience and ensure a favorable outcome in your case. But how can you tell when the time is right to bring in a lawyer? Below, the attorneys at Stephen B. Kaufman, P.C., in Bronx, NY, discuss when to hire a lawyer in a car crash case.

3 Situations That Call for the Assistance of an Automobile Accident Attorney

1. When Liability Is Unclear

Some automobile accidents are straightforward: one driver was in the wrong, and another driver was the victim. Unfortunately, not all cases are so clear-cut. Liability may not be obvious immediately, or it could even be shared between the parties involved in the crash. When liability has not been determined, consider it an indicator that you should hire an attorney; your lawyer will help establish fault, so you can recover the compensation you deserve.

2. When Insurers Won’t Work With Youautomobile accident

If you're in touch with an insurance company over your claim, bear in mind that they have a vested interest in giving you as little compensation as possible. If you've been offered a settlement that is far below what you think your case is worth, hire a lawyer. Attorneys know how to cut through the tactics insurers use to deny claims or to settle claims for far less than a case's real value.

3. When Negotiations Have Gone on for Too Long

Negotiations are a good thing, but after a while, they can hit a wall. If you've been negotiating with insurers by yourself and have been getting nowhere, a lawyer's assistance is likely needed. A lawyer will communicate directly with insurers on your behalf and work to find a resolution that most benefits you. If an insurer is still taking time to provide effective answers, the attorney will then advise you on the next steps to take to file a formal lawsuit.
