I don’t have to tell you how awful traffic is in the DC/Maryland area. But in case you were wondering, Washington, DC is the second-worst city for traffic in the United States. You probably already assumed that was the case as you think about your daily commute, whether it be to work, to drop off kids at school, or to run errands.
With more traffic comes more accidents, so if you’re injured in a crash in the DC region, you want to make sure you have an experienced car accident attorney to help.
When Should I Contact an Attorney?
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, the first and most important thing you should do is seek medical attention. Even if the accident is low-speed or low-impact, it’s always smart to be seen by a doctor, whether it’s your personal physician or a trip to the ER.
So, what if you may not feel as though you’re injured? Know this: many auto accident-related injuries can surface well after the actual collision occurs. Once you’ve received medical attention, and before you speak to the at fault driver’s insurance company, call the DC and Maryland Car Accident Attorneys at The Lapidus Law Firm.
Do I Really Need an Attorney?
In some cases, no. We’ll review your case, and we may determine a lawyer is not necessary for you to get a fair and reasonable settlement. But in many cases, it’s a very smart move to get an attorney. Why? Because lawyers like those here at The Lapidus Law Firm use their skill, knowledge, and expertise to handle the legwork and aftermath of a car accident that most times results in a larger settlement for the client than if they had no legal representation.
This usually involves phone calls, negotiations, legal documentation, evidence gathering, investigations, and back and forth with attorneys and insurance companies. Let the professionals at The Lapidus Law Firm handle that for you. If we take your case, we’ll investigate the accident and obtain any evidence related to damage and liability, contact your doctors to get your medical records, and negotiate with insurance adjusters and/or defense attorneys and so much more!
Will I Get a Settlement?
Unfortunately, there’s no way to ever guarantee a settlement for any car accident injury claim. What we can promise is that if we take your case, we will leave no stone unturned. And if we determine that the other party is liable, the Car Accident Attorneys with The Lapidus Law Firm will work tenaciously to get you a very fair and reasonable settlement to help you with medical expenses, property damage, and pain and suffering lost wages and more.
