Being in a serious car accident can change a person’s life. In seconds they can go from being a healthy and independent person to relying on a wheelchair and unable to work. If this injury was caused by a negligent driver, the injured person is entitled to money to pay for their medical bills, lost income, emotional trauma and pain and suffering. It can often be difficult for a severely injured person to deal with an insurance company that refuses to acknowledge their customer’s negligence or the severity of the injury. To get the financial settlement they deserve under the law, an injured person should contact an Auto Accident Lawyer in Chandler to represent them.
It’s not only another driver that can be found negligent and liable for damages. If the person was injured in a rollover accident that was caused by a tire blowout, the the company that designed or manufactured the tire can also be forced to pay for damages. An Auto Accident Lawyer Chandler will hire forensic engineers and accident reconstruction specialists to prove what caused the accident. They will also interview any witnesses that can bolster the findings. Hiring a lawyer as soon as possible allows them to preserve evidence that could be destroyed and interview witnesses before they forget crucial information.
Many people may not contact a lawyer because they believe that they can’t afford legal representation. An attorney at the Law Offices of Jay Bansal will set up a free consultation to determine if the injured person has a negligence case against a driver or company. If they take the case, they won’t expect the client to pay a cent out of their own pocket. This is known as taking a case on a contingency basis. The lawyer is paid a percentage from any monetary settlement they win for their client. Once an insurance company realizes that the injured person is represented by an aggressive lawyer, they may make an offer. While it’s always the injured person’s decision to accept or reject an offer, the lawyer can tell them what has been paid in similar cases. If the insurance company resists offering the compensation required for a person to live well and receive medical treatment, the lawyer can take them to court.
