I regularly drive carefully on the streets. Yet, there was this one time, when I was unfortunate and crashed my car into a truck. Such as they say ”accident happens”, it also ruin the fun.
Lucky for me, I knew what to do because my brother is a district attorney. But for those of you who don’t, keep scrolling.
According to statistics, there are 6 million road accidents each year on the road with the average number of death rate close to 33,000.
Why the Lawyer?
The damage a car accident will give you is a burden of huge bills. If you don’t have insurance, it can cost you a fortune through repair, health examinations of yourself and third parties and even charges of damaged property and injuries.
This is where you require a lawyer, and the quicker you get one, the better!
When the time is right
Don’t fail to recall what Tim Fargo alleged, “Intellect is knowing the correct answer. Understanding is knowing when to mention it”, and why do I say this? Because you have to distinguish what to do in a life-threatening situation.
The first objective after you crash your car is to dial 911. Duh! Everybody knows that!
Yes, but you are obligated by the state law and insurance rules to report it and then file your charge as quickly as you can. The time differs for every single state. Better call your lawyer at this time, so that he can fix it for you.
What Facilities Do They Offer?
Lawyers are specialists in operation of law. They will offer you direction and will do the lawful (boring and confusing!) preparation for you in the court of law. They:
- Bring together evidences for example crash reports, photos etc.
- File a lawsuit in the court and
- Will also support you if you were sunk with lots of medical bills.
And meanwhile you watch TV and get healthy in the coziness of a bed.
How Much Do They Bill?
It’s good to know how much they usually bill you. A regular U.S attorney will bill you around 20-30% of your structured settlement payout and insurance claim. Plus any expense that he personally gave on your behalf.
You can save yourself a huge amount of time and anxiety if you know these guidelines. But you should effort on the most vital one: DRIVE SAFE! As per Edward Coke one time said, “Protection is better than treatment”.
