In the aftermath of a car accident, it’s natural to want things to go back to “normal.” You might be thinking that you can just negotiate with the other driver’s insurance company, and they’ll write you a friendly check to cover all your expenses.
In theory, you can negotiate on your own, but this will rarely provide you with an ideal outcome. The reason is that the at-fault driver’s insurance company has a different objective than you do. They aim to keep the amount of money they pay out to accident victims to a minimum. They have an entire team of attorneys whose job is to minimize (or even eliminate) the size of the checks that they write.
By having an attorney represent you in a car accident claim, you’ll be on a more level playing field. Instead of a David and Goliath situation, where you are little David, you’ll have a representative whose sole purpose is to recover as much money as possible from the other party.
We fight for car accident victims to get them compensation for repair bills, medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. With more than 15 years of experience, Bryan Garrett is here for you.
Benefits of Hiring a Car Accident Lawyer
We have a process that allows us to understand what happened in the accident so that we can pursue maximum compensation for your claim.
- Full investigation: In some cases, the other insurance company might try to say that you were at fault. We will conduct an in-depth investigation of the accident, including a thorough review of the police report, witness testimony, and medical records to uncover the facts.
- Managed medical treatment: If you need medical treatment, it’s important that you see the right doctors and have proper documentation of your injuries and therapies. Without having a record of the full extent of your injuries, it can be difficult to recover the total amount that your case is worth.
- Skilled negotiations: We are intimately familiar with the tricks and tactics that insurance companies use to minimize the size of settlement checks. According to the Insurance Research Council, someone who’s been injured in a car accident receives 3.5 times more money when they hire legal representation.
How Much Does It Cost?
Most car accident cases work on a contingency basis. This means that you don’t have to pay the attorney up front, and you won’t rack up a hefty legal bill. Instead, you’ll receive legal representation at no charge, and a percentage of the proceeds from your settlement will be used to pay the attorney.
For this reason, it’s highly recommended that you consult with an auto accident attorney after any collision, even if you think that the injuries or property damage are minor. An experienced attorney can evaluate the facts of your case and determine how much your case may be worth.

When a case results in a catastrophic injury, it’s even more prudent to seek the support of legal counsel. It’s not uncommon for an insurance company to try to minimize your claim or avoid liability altogether.
