Road Mishaps: Why a Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help You Protect Your Rights

If you have been in a car accident, then a personal injury lawyer can be very useful. They are objective, professional, and do not pass judgment. They will represent you and fight for you and can even offer you legal aid if you are on a reduced income. This article will explain the myriad of ways that a personal injury lawyer can protect your rights and help you:

All Kinds of Cases

One thing to remember is that a personal injury lawyer can help you with all kinds of cases. People typically assume they only represent people involved in car accidents, but this is wrong. If you have sustained an injury that is not your fault, a personal injury lawyer will fight for your right to compensation.

Go Over Your Rights

You might not know what your rights are, but a personal injury lawyer will. While the rights of a person involved in a car accident vary from state to state, you can trust that your lawyer will know exactly what yours are, wherever you are. One right that is universal is the right to seek compensation if you have been injured by a person or a company. Your lawyer will help you to seek compensation if you want to.

They’ll Study Your Case

A personal injury lawyer will give you the opportunity to have your say and present your case. They are impartial and unbiased. If your case has merit, then they will tell you and they will fight for you. Conversely, if your case doesn’t have a leg to stand on, then they will tell you. They protect your right to have your case examined, and if necessary, brought to court.

And Investigate It…

Not only will they study the small details of your case, but they will investigate it too. They will try to gather their own evidence to support yours. If you have never had an accident before and, at the time of your accident, was unable to acquire sufficient evidence, then your attorney may be able to help you. They will scour the area for CCTV and try to locate witnesses.

Insurance Adjuster

After you have had a car accident, you will have to discuss the intricacies of your claim with an insurance adjuster, even though they will typically try to drive down the price of your claim as much as they can. An attorney, however, will be able to represent you and protect your right to adequate compensation. They will represent you and argue for you. If you go at it alone, you could end up with no compensation at all.


Your attorney will be able to ensure that you get the justice that you deserve. Their experience, training, and access to legal resources (books, colleagues, case studies, etc) will help them to protect your rights.

Legal Strategies

As you are not a lawyer, you will probably have very little knowledge about legal strategies. A personal injury lawyer, however, will be able to examine your case and develop the best strategy for you. This helps you to receive the compensation that you are entitled to.

Fair Settlement Offers

As we have already said, you have a right to compensation if you have been injured because of somebody else’s negligence. Your attorney will be able to recognize when an insurance company is low-balling you. They will, in turn, be able to turn down these settlements, and argue for more. They will be able to use their training and experience to get you the best amount of money to help with your injuries or damages.

Legal Representation

Your attorney will handle negotiations with the other person’s insurance company for you, and they will handle mediations. If you decide that you want to sue the person, then your attorney will represent you in court. Self-representation is usually a bad idea, and rarely turns out the way that people expect that it will. Instead of self-representing, hire an attorney. An attorney will have been in courtrooms thousands of times, and thus, will be able to properly argue for your rights.

Legal Aid

Not everybody is fortunate enough to be able to pay for a lawyer. If you find the right lawyer, however, then you may be entitled to legal aid. Legal aid will pay for your case, so you don’t have to. You might also be able to find a lawyer on a no-win-no-fee basis, which ensures that you still get your day in court even if you don’t have the money to fund it. Attorneys are very useful and can help to protect and preserve your rights. It is unlikely that you will ever need one, and hopefully, you never have a car accident!
