Why hire a car accident lawyer or car accident attorney?

If you were injured in a car accident and the other driver was at fault, you may be entitled to compensation from the other driver’s insurance company. The other driver’s insurer may even contact you to offer payment to settle the case. People in this situation are sometimes tempted to take the settlement offer or to try to negotiate a better offer on their own. That is a mistake.

Joyce & Reyes offers a free consultation to injured people. We will listen to the facts of your case and advise you on whether filing a personal injury lawsuit is in your interest. Often, the settlement offers that insurance companies make to people who are not represented by attorneys are much lower than the settlement you could get by filing a lawsuit with an attorney.

Once you have a lawyer’s advice, you will know what your case is worth, and you will be able to judge whether it is a good idea to take a particular settlement offer. If a lawsuit is filed, then you and your attorney will have access to further evidence through the legal process, and you will have greater bargaining power. Finally, if the insurance company still does not make a reasonable offer, then your attorney can take the case to trial.
