Benefits of a Lawyer After an Oklahoma City Car Accident
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 41,000 people in the United States die in auto accidents each year. Car accidents are a daily occurrence in Oklahoma, and sometimes a lawyer does not need to be involved. If there is only property damage or very minor injuries, you may not need an attorney. But oftentimes, when issues arise about who is at fault (liability) and the damages to which the injured is entitled, it is a good idea to have an experienced attorney on your side. After all, the person who caused the accident will almost certainly be represented by an insurance company and its army of lawyers, investigators, adjusters and agents. Insurance companies fight personal injury auto accident claims on a daily basis. They have powerful financial incentives to delay settlement for as long as possible, and to pay as little as they can possibly get away with paying.
We have extensive experience dealing with insurance companies. Some companies are easier to deal with than other companies. One company may be aggressive and unreasonable, while another company may actually offer a fair settlement. We know the documentation and evidence that must be preserved in order to develop a successful claim, and can offer invaluable advice about preserving evidence and preparing your case. In addition, we know the techniques that the insurance companies use to influence victims to settle quickly and for less compensation than they deserve. In short, we know your legal rights and can quickly determine what constitutes a fair settlement in your situation. The earlier you contact us, the more options we will have to help you.
