What Does a Car Accident Lawyer Do?

The days that follow a car accident can be foggy, especially if someone was killed or injured. Questions run through your head about the accident, who was at fault, if you have to miss work, and who will pay for the medical bills.

The answers are not always clear, and a car accident lawyer can help you navigate the aftermath of an accident and negotiate with insurance companies for you.

Insurance companies have attorneys working for them, so it levels the playing field when you hire an attorney to handle your case. A car accident lawyer will be your advocate so your voice is heard and you are compensated fairly.

What does a car accident lawyer do?

A lawyer brings years of experience and knowledge regarding the laws and procedural rules that impact your unique case. We are experts in dealing with insurance companies and claims where this may be your first time to file a claim. Your attorney will handle the smaller details, such as talking with your insurance company and gathering reports, as well as the intimidating and time-consuming details, such as collecting evidence and filing a lawsuit if necessary. We do the legwork so you don't have to.

How can a car accident lawyer help me?

We work for you. A car accident lawyer will be your advocate and lead the case against the party at fault. We represent you in front of the judge, and we make sure your voice is heard by the other attorneys, the jury, and the insurance company. Many car accidents result in lost wages, emotional hurt, and piles of medical bills. An attorney can get you the money you deserve to help you move on.

What is the fee for a car accident lawyer?

Bart Durham never collects a fee unless we win your case. There is no risk in talking to an attorney. In fact, it can be useful to chat with an attorney from the start. We can advise you on how long you have to file your claim, or tell you if you have a case that will stand up in court.

Don't navigate the confusing world of insurance claims on your own. Call us or contact us online to get the answers and the help you deserve.
