The Realities of an Arkansas Car Accident
If you think calling a lawyer is an option and not a necessity after a car accident, you might want to consider the following realities about car accidents in Arkansas. First of all, this accident is going to cost you. It’s a fact that if you’ve been injured and require medical treatment, the bills are coming to you. Without an attorney, it’s up to you to get the other driver’s insurance company to pay your current medical expenses and any future medical expenses as well.
Here’s the catch. You only get one shot to do so. After you sign a settlement agreement, the insurance company is off the hook for any future expenses. That means you have to negotiate not only your current medical expenses but also anticipate accurately what those future expenses will be as well. If you miscalculate, the bills are your responsibility.
Secondly, you’ll have to deal with the insurance company while you’re recovering from your accident. It’s within the insurance company’s best interests to settle as quickly as possible following your accident. Think you’ll be up for fighting that battle while dealing with hospital stays, doctor visits, and physical therapy? Probably not. An experienced lawyer fights those battles on your behalf, so you can concentrate on one thing: getting better.
