Getting into a car accident is, unfortunately, an all-too-common occurrence. According to the Association for Safe International Road Travel, approximately 6 million car accidents occur every year in the US–that’s more than 16,000 accidents per day!
Auto accidents not only lead to physical pain and injury, but they also cause mental anguish and plenty of aggravation. If you’ve never been in an auto accident, consider yourself extremely fortunate and keep up your safe driving. If you have, however, been a victim of a car accident, you may have several questions. We’ll answer them right here.
When Should You Call an Attorney After a Car Accident?
As soon as possible. First, you should seek medical attention for any injury or potential injury you may have sustained. In fact, it’s critically important to do so not only for your health (which is always paramount) but also for the benefit of your claim.
Once you’ve seen a doctor or received medical attention, call an auto accident attorney in Washington, DC and the metro area right away. Our experienced attorneys at The Lapidus Law Firm are ready to help.
How Do You Know You Need an Attorney After an Auto Accident?
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, it’s essential to – at the very least – let an experienced lawyer review your claim and determine if a fair and reasonable settlement is possible. If we do move forward with your case, having an experienced auto accident attorney is critical, because we know how to negotiate with insurance companies and talk to medical personnel about your medical records and injuries.
Don’t worry…your consultation with The Lapidus Law Firm is entirely free, without obligation, and conducted over Zoom for your safety and convenience.
How Much Can I Expect in a Car Accident Settlement?
As attorneys, we cannot ethically promise a settlement to anyone. We can promise to work our hardest on your behalf to get you a fair and reasonable settlement. What that settlement may look like, it depends on quite a few factors.
These include the circumstances of the accident, the severity of your injuries, how long it takes you to heal, among others. So, there is no specific ‘one size fits all’ answer–but our auto accident attorneys will work tirelessly for you.
How Much Does an Auto Accident Attorney Cost?
As mentioned, The Lapidus Law Firm offers a free, no-obligation consultation to start the process. If we take your case, you pay nothing out of pocket. If we’re able to reach a fair, reasonable settlement, we simply take a percentage of that sum, and the rest is yours.
