Top 10 Reasons Car Accident Victims Talk to Attorneys

Following a car accident, many people are content to simply call their insurance company and let them handle the matter. They almost certainly do not realize that by doing this, they risk settling their claim for substantially less compensation than they may deserve.

Other individuals decide to at least talk to an experienced car accident attorney about their case before taking action one way or another. There are many possible reasons why people decide to consult auto accident attorneys.

A recent survey conducted on behalf of the Insurance Research Council reveals the top 10 reasons people contact an auto accident attorney. Note that survey respondents could choose more than one answer so the percentages will add up to more than 100 percent.

  1. Someone I know suggested I talk to an attorney –33%
  2. I wanted to get the highest settlement possible –22%
  3. My doctor suggested I talk to an attorney –16%
  4. I was dissatisfied with delays in settlement –15%
  5. I saw an attorney’s advertising – 13%
  6. I was dissatisfied with the amount offered in my settlement –10%
  7. The other party was uninsured –9%
  8. My insurer rejected my claim –8%
  9. A lawyer contacted me –7%
  10. I had a problem with my collision/rental coverage –5%

If you have been seriously injured, it is always in your best interests to consult an experienced car accident attorney about your case, even if you ultimately do not end up hiring them. Your attorney can provide many helpful services, such as telling you whether or not you have legal grounds for a personal injury claim against the driver responsible for your accident and advising you of the potential value of your case. An attorney’s help will be invaluable if your case involves complications like the need to target a trucking company for an accident caused by one of their drivers to the need to sue an auto manufacturer for an accident caused by a vehicle defect.
