Auto Accident and Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney

Car Accident Attorney Grand Rapids

So you were in an auto accident and suffered injury? Then you must now be looking into hiring an auto accident injury lawyer. At Beurkens Law, attorney Jerry Beurkens will work with you and the legal guidance you are looking for during your court case.

If the auto accidentwas the other driver's fault, then you are likely entitled to money for:

  • Your lost income.
  • Medical expenses.
  • Pain and suffering.
  • Other damages resulting from the accident.

Insurance & Litigation

Believe it or not, most people would like to do the right thing and compensate you for your injury. However, the decision is rarely up to them. Usually it's the insurance company representing the other driver who decides. 

It’s no surprise insurance companies do everything in their power to avoid paying you any compensation. They also do everything in their power to avoid offering a settlement. And if they do offer a settlement, it is usually far less than what one of our auto accident lawyers could get. 

If you prefer a fair process to pursue your legal claim, you have another option. You could file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver. 

Note that litigating a car accident case can be tricky. The laws and legal issues involved can be very complicated and difficult for the layperson. Consulting with one of our auto accident attorneys can help you better decide how to successfully manage your claim. 

At the initial consultation, one of our personal injury attorneys will:

  • Inform you of your legal rights.
  • Evaluate your case.
  • Help you understand your available options.

Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer 

The purpose of hiring a personal injury lawyer is to get the full and proper compensation that you deserve. Once you hire one of our aggressive attorneys, they will carry out certain various tasks in preparation to litigate your case.

A few examples of these tasks include:

  • Gathering police reports.
  • Gathering statements from witness.
  • Having your injuries examined by an expert physician.
  • Obtaining your medical reports.
  • Looking for other evidentiary documents that will support your claim. 
  • Also, our attorney will act as an intermediary between you and the opposing party for communications

In many instances, auto accident cases never make it. They end up negotiated and settled out-of-court between your attorney and the insurance company representing the other driver. 

A skilled car accident attorney seasoned in the art of negotiation is essential both for an out-of-court or court settlement. In the end, if the aggrieved party doesn’t agree with an out-of-court settlement, the court can determine the amount that will be given to them.
