If you have a catastrophic car accident injury, you may be entitled to significant benefits from the insurance company. Some people come away from a car accident without any significant injuries, while others can sustain life-threatening injuries and be permanently disabled.

For those catastrophically injured from a car accident, medical bills might be piling high and you are likely faced with calls from the insurance company while you are dealing with your injuries. This can be a very stressful situation, and hiring a lawyer may give you some peace of mind while you focus on recovering from your injuries.


What Will Hiring a Lawyer Do For Me?

If you were catastrophically injured in a car accident, a lawyer can take care of the insurance claim and settlement process while you focus on treating your injuries. The insurance company may start calling you just hours after the accident, and a lawyer can help you navigate the insurance process.

A lawyer can also help identify insurance coverage. A lawyer can help look through your insurance policy and navigate the complex process of filing an insurance claim. If you are seriously injured in a car crash, you have enough on your plate with treatment and rehabilitation, and adjusting to life with your injuries. A lawyer can take the stress of handling your insurance claim off your plate so you can focus on your health.

Insurance companies are interested in paying as little as possible to settle a case, and you may leave a significant amount of money on the table by accepting their first offer. A lawyer can fight for the maximum amount of benefits from the insurance company.

Finally, a lawyer can work to get the insurance company to pay for your medical bills. If you are catastrophically injured in a car accident, you may be faced with thousands of dollars’ worth of medical bills and treatment costs. A lawyer can help in getting the insurance company to cover your medical costs while you focus on recovering from your injuries.
