You should consider hiring an attorney if you’re injured in a car accident. The more severe the injuries, the more it makes sense to retain a lawyer to protect your interests, negotiate a fair settlement, and litigate your case if necessary. If you’re unsure, contact Jeff Davis and schedule a free consultation. If your case is unsuitable for our team, we’ll advise you on how to help yourself or suggest another attorney. There will be no cost to you if we feel we’re a good fit, and you agree to retain us. We won’t get paid until there’s a settlement or trial verdict in your favor.
Nearly all vehicle accident cases involve parties covered by insurance. You’ll be at the insurance company’s mercy if you’re seriously injured and represent yourself when seeking compensation. Insurance companies have much more knowledge about accident and insurance laws than you do. They also have far more resources than you do, and it won’t be a fair fight. You’re practically guaranteed to be short-changed.
There are many other reasons to retain an attorney after being injured in a vehicle crash.
Legal Expertise and Knowledge
Insurance and vehicle accident laws are complex. Jeff Davis has in-depth knowledge of these laws, enabling him to navigate the intricate legal system for his clients. We will accurately assess the situation, determine who is liable for what, and identify the applicable legal theories and defenses. This knowledge was learned during nearly 40 years of legal practice and is invaluable when negotiating with insurance companies or representing you in court.
Proper Evaluation of Damages
A car accident can result in various damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. Determining the full extent of these damages is essential to receive appropriate compensation. Jeff Davis will work diligently to investigate your case, gather evidence, consult medical experts, and calculate the value of your losses.
Dealing with Insurance Companies
We will deal with the insurance company so you won’t have to. Instead, you can focus on recovery and your family.
Insurance company employees may contact you and appear very friendly and helpful, but they work for the insurance company, while Jeff Davis will work for you. Their primary goal is to protect their bottom line. Our goal is to get you the most compensation possible.
Accident victims without legal representation are at a significant disadvantage when dealing with insurance adjusters who may manipulate accident victims to minimize the settlement amount. A skilled car accident lawyer understands their tactics and can negotiate on your behalf, ensuring you receive a fair settlement.
Proving who’s responsible for the accident is crucial to your car accident case. In some situations, the fault may be straightforward, but in others, it may be disputed or shared among multiple parties. Jeff Davis will thoroughly investigate your accident, collect evidence such as police reports, witness statements, and surveillance footage, and reconstruct the sequence of events to establish liability.
This evidence-based approach will strengthen your claim and improve your chances of receiving fair compensation for what you’ve endured.
Most car accident cases are settled out of court, but some require litigation to achieve a just result. If a fair settlement cannot be reached through negotiations, Jeff Davis can take your case to court. We will effectively present evidence and arguments to tell your story to the judge and jury and make it clear that seeing things your way is the right thing to do.
