Common Misconceptions About Calling a Lawyer

Some people won’t call a lawyer after an accident because they think filing a lawsuit is going to cost them time and money. After practicing law for more than 30 years in Indiana, our attorneys would say the opposite is actually true. Let’s break these two misconceptions down one at a time.

Calling a lawyer will cost you lots of time. Most accident victims want to put their accident behind them as quickly as possible, and that’s understandable. They’re afraid that a lawsuit will draw it out for months, requiring them to invest massive amounts of time throughout the process. That’s not usually the case. The advantage of getting an experienced law firm on your side is that they do all the heavy lifting. From fully investigating your case to filing all the necessary paperwork along the way, you have a team working on your behalf so you can dedicate your time to getting better.

Calling a lawyer will cost you lots of money. Many accident victims will receive a settlement offer from the insurance company whether or not they secure a lawyer. The problem is, this offer will more than likely be for much less than they deserve. Without an experienced lawyer on your side who knows how to get maximum compensation out of the insurance company, you could be settling for much less than it’s going to take to get you out of the this dilemma. In our experience, not calling a lawyer will cost you more money in the long run and potentially put your family in a financially tough spot.

If you’ve been injured, call our Indiana car accident attorneys today. We’ve been helping members of our community get the compensation they deserve in as little time as possible for more than 30 years, and we’re ready to help you too.
