Car accidents take place every single day in Delaware, and every single day, drivers and passengers in those same vehicles are severely injured if not killed.
However, if you were fortunate enough to walk away unscathed from an accident, you are likely in the midst of the auto accident claims process. As a result, you may also be wondering whether hiring a car accident attorney can prove beneficial to someone in your position.
Explained in the simplest terms, individuals involved in a car accident should always seek the opinion of a legal professional. The law surrounding liability in car crashes can be inexplicably difficult to comprehend. Individuals may be convinced that, since the accident was a mere fender bender, that it is not worthwhile to seek legal representation.
However, there are many instances in which this is not the case.
Whether a lawyer will take on your car accident case will come down to the specific circumstances of the case.
Some factors affecting this decision can include the extent of the damages to the vehicles, the number of vehicles involved, the number of drivers/passengers involved, and of course, the presence of physical injuries (or lack thereof.)
In most kinds of civil cases revolving around injury law, if there are no damages, then most lawsuits will be completely unfounded. This is to say, they have no solid legal basis upon which to stand and, if a lawyer does take in fact pursue the case, it is likely to be dismissed by a potential defendant as well as a civil justice court.
However, just because there were no injuries does not mean that there were no damages, and seeking legal representation can still prove useful if only for the initial consultation.
Depending on the nature of your accident, the damages may be much bigger than you think, even if you were fortunate enough to keep your health. More importantly, you may have actually suffered physical injuries but are not yet privy to them.
Have you received a clean bill of health from your doctor after the automotive collision? If not, you should schedule one right away. Injuries caused by car crashes are not always superficial. Slipped vertebral discs, traumatic brain injuries, and even some small bone fractures can take some time to manifest. If you're walking into the claims process without the guarantee that your health was completely unaffected by the accident, then you're putting yourself at a significant disadvantage.
If medical costs are a concern, you need to know that these may be covered by insurance policies covering the accident. In the same way that you are not expected to know every detail of the law if you're not a lawyer, it's just as unreasonable to expect you to diagnose your own injuries after an accident. Visiting a doctor as soon as possible after an accident can literally be considered a question of life or death or, in a best-case scenario, of chronic pain and complete recovery.
