You hear it all too often—auto accidents occur every day. Several times a day, in fact. While many accidents only result in inconvenient vehicle damage, several have far worse outcomes such as injury or even death. While it’s something no one wants to think about, the threat of an accident is very real.
If you or a loved one are involved in an auto accident, rest assured that the DC Auto Accident Attorneys at The Lapidus Law Firm are here to help you deal with the aftermath.
Why Might You Need an Auto Accident Attorney?
There are many good reasons to hire an auto accident attorney if you are injured in a crash. Not having to deal with insurance companies is just one of the many reasons for hiring a lawyer.
If there has been an injury, it’s a good idea to contact an attorney as soon as possible. Keep reading to see how our team at The Lapidus Law Firm can help you if you’ve been in an auto accident in the DC metro area.
Personal Injury And Property Damage
In 2018 alone, approximately 4.5 million people sustained serious injuries from auto accidents in the United States. Many of those injuries most likely involved hospitalization, lost wages, pain and suffering, physical therapy, and more. Those things can cost you hundreds – but more likely – thousands of dollars. Sure, you have insurance, but is that going to cover your growing expenses? Probably not.
In fact, many insurance companies assume you don’t know all the factors that could be included in your final settlement amount, so they offer the lowest settlement possible. Cases worth thousands of dollars are typically settled for a few hundred dollars if an attorney is not involved. After all, the lower the settlement offer, the more profit the insurance company gains.
That’s where an auto accident attorney comes in. The lawyers at The Lapidus Law Firm will handle the communications with insurance companies; they will fight to get you a fair and reasonable settlement for the injuries you’ve received and the other losses associated with those injuries, such as medical bills and income losses.
If your vehicle was seriously damaged in an auto accident in or around DC, it’s going to be a huge inconvenience. You’ll need to rent a car or utilize an alternative means of transportation just to get around. On top of that, you’re dealing with auto repair shops, obtaining appointments with medical doctors, physical, therapists and in most cases, radiologists and other specialists…. it’s one giant hassle.
But an auto accident attorney will communicate on your behalf with the insurance adjusters, obtain the documentation necessary to prove your damage, and then negotiate for the best possible settlement.
