When Should I Hire a Lawyer?

After an accident, it can be tough to figure out what the next steps are. In the hours and days afterward, you’re likely to still be in shock and physical anguish, and that’s not exactly a good state to be in when making major decisions.

Getting in touch with a Baton Rouge personal injury attorney at E Eric Guirard Injury Lawyers can help alleviate some of the stress. We’ll get to work right away and are more than happy to visit you at your home or hospital as needed.

As soon as you file a claim with the insurance companies, things will be set in motion. Investigations will be held and phone interviews conducted to determine who is at fault for the accident and, ultimately, who is responsible for making you whole again.

Don’t stand up to the insurance companies alone. Their only goal is to prove that they are not liable for the incident and, if they are found liable, to pay you as little as possible. You may even be offered a small settlement, a deal of sorts, in an attempt to pay you off and get the claim closed as quickly as possible.

Don’t be fooled. Chances are, whatever you are offered is only a fraction of what you could actually be entitled to in the eyes of the law. Consulting with a lawyer as soon as possible after an accident can help educate you about your options and provide a more fruitful means of dealing with insurance settlements.
