Of the many things an auto accident attorney can do for you following an accident, speaking with insurance companies might be one of the most important. It removes you from a high-stress situation where an insurance adjuster might ask you questions that you don’t know the answers to. If you say the wrong thing it could significantly damage your chances of receiving the payout that you truly deserve. This is especially true if your insurance company convinces you to make a recorded statement. While you want to be cooperative with your insurance company you need to be careful to protect your own interests.
An auto accident attorney, like those at Clark & Martino, P.A., in Tampa, FL, can help you do that not only by speaking to insurance companies on your behalf but also by:
- Filling out complicated forms for you
- Seeking the maximum compensation available for injuries and lost wages
- Performing an independent investigation to clear you of guilt if necessary
An auto accident attorney can also file a lawsuit on your behalf and even take your case to court if that’s what is needed to obtain your compensation. However, the decision to go to court should always be the clients, and it should be a last resort. Going to court prolongs the process and comes with larger lawyer’s fees, meaning it will take longer to get your compensation check and that a larger percentage of the settlement will go to your attorney. That’s why we never recommend going to court unless it’s absolutely necessary. If a trial is needed in your case, you can feel comfortable knowing that unlike some other firms we have the resources on hand to take your case to court and we have the trial experience necessary to put up a good fight.
