If you are the victim of a car accident case, the first thing to do after receiving medical help is to contact an attorney. While Montana law doesn't require you to have a lawyer to make a car accident settlement, or even to sue based on a car accident, you shouldn’t attempt this process on your own.
Why Do You Need a Lawyer?
Insurance companies are professionals who have experts on staff. They handle hundreds or even thousands of Montana car accident claims and complaints each year. They know the insider rules of the court system, and they can be intimidating to a person who isn't familiar with the system. Insurance companies may try to pressure you into a settlement or offer you terms that aren't fair, and are notorious for taking advantage of injured people who are unable to work, unable to pay medical bills, and desperate for money. If you don't have a lawyer it can be difficult to determine whether an offer from the insurance company is appropriate compensation.
Fortunately, your attorney is as skilled as the insurance company. He will communicate with the insurance company on your behalf and negotiate to make sure you get the most compensation possible. Your attorney knows what others with similar injuries to yours often receive as compensation, and can give you information to help you decide whether an offer is fair. If you decide to sue, it becomes even more essential to have a lawyer who knows the rules of the court system and who can help you to follow those rules and convince a judge or jury of your right to damages.
What About Legal Fees?
When considering whether it is worthwhile to hire a lawyer, it's also important to remember that auto accident lawyers are hired on a contingency basis , which means that they don't get paid unless they recover for the client. This means you aren't putting your money at risk by hiring a lawyer.
