When Do You Need A Car Accident Attorney?
After a serious car accident, many people believe they're capable of handling the insurance claims process on their own. If the accident was minor or the damages were low, this strategy might be feasible. But the reality is that serious accidents complicate matters, and hiring a lawyer may be the correct decision.
You should consider hiring an experienced car accident attorney if the other driver's insurance company is not willing to pay you what you believe is fair for the injuries you have sustained. If the other driver is uninsured or underinsured, hiring an attorney can also make this process easier for you. Recent research has shown that 17.4 percent of Washington state drivers are uninsured, and that number is climbing.
It’s crucial that you contact a Washington state car accident attorney serving the Seattle area immediately so you can learn more about your legal rights and get the help you deserve right away. The attorneys and legal staff at Davis Law Group, P.S., would love to talk to you.
