Do I Need an Accident Attorney for Minor Injuries?
It’s common for our Dallas clients to wonder whether or not to contact an accident attorney following a fall, car wreck or any other type of accident. Unfortunately, if they consider their injuries to be minor, many accident victims decide not to contact an accident attorney because they assume they don’t have a valid case. This is often a mistake.
By simply living with your injuries or minor property damage, you could be losing out on valuable compensation. One of the most important steps to take following your Dallas accident is to contact an experienced attorney at the Turley Law Firm to discuss your case for free. During your initial consultation, we will help you determine the best strategy for your unique situation.
Injuries can worsen over time.
In the hours and days following your accident, you may assume that your injuries are minor and that you are simply sore. However, many traumatic injuries, such as whiplash, don’t manifest for days following the accident. Some apparently minor injuries can worsen over time, slowly inflicting physical complications and increasing medical costs. It is critical to undergo a thorough medical evaluation following any accident, to determine the full extent or potential of your injuries. Even when your injuries are minor, you shouldn’t hesitate to contact an accident attorney to discuss your case.
Accident attorneys can help with insurance settlements.
Even when your injuries don’t warrant a lawsuit, an attorney can still be a beneficial ally when negotiating with your insurer. Insurance companies are in the business of making money, not paying claims. They often try to offer less than you need or deserve. An attorney will evaluate your losses and advise you on whether your insurer’s offer is appropriate. If it isn’t, a lawyer can effectively communicate with the insurance company to help obtain the offer you deserve.
