Fort Worth car accident lawyer Coby L. Wooten realizes how much this question matters to accident victims. Deciding whether to hire a lawyer is a major decision. Before you commit, it makes sense that you want to know if it’s worth the effort. We understand you may have more questions than answers after being involved in even a minor car accident. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of some of the most frequently asked questions explaining how our Fort Worth car accident law firm can help you.
We understand the impact a car wreck can have on the lives of victims and their families. Victims need medical treatment and expenses can add up quickly. They may not be able to work, resulting in a loss of income. This can result in financial stress; many people aren’t sure how they will pay the bills.
If a negligent driver caused the crash that left you injured, you shouldn’t have to pay. But the legal process for recovering financial compensation can be complicated. Negligent drivers often deny doing anything wrong, even though they were speeding, driving recklessly or texting. Insurance companies try to minimize your injuries. And they have lawyers to help them find ways to pay you less.

Do I need to hire a lawyer if I’m involved in a car accident?
You don’t need to hire a lawyer, but having an experienced car accident lawyer on your side may help you get more money in your pocket. Hiring an attorney is especially important when your accident has caused injuries or significant property damage. Without the help of a lawyer, insurance companies may try to take advantage of you. They may even try to bully you into accepting a fast settlement that doesn’t cover the long-term cost of your accident. We don’t think that’s fair. Coby L. Wooten, Attorney at Law, P.C. offers every prospective client a free case evaluation. From there, it’s up to you to decide if we’re the right law firm for you. We believe we are. Case results matter here.

Should I hire a lawyer for a minor car accident?
If you’re at all injured, consulting with an attorney after a car accident is always a good idea, no matter the severity of the accident. A lawyer can negotiate on your behalf to maximize the financial compensation awarded to you. If there is a disagreement on who was at fault for your accident, an attorney can launch an investigation to uncover evidence in support of your claim. Whatever legal help you need, your lawyer will be there to help you obtain a better car accident settlement or verdict.

When should I hire an attorney?
The best time to hire an attorney after a car accident is right away. The sooner you have a lawyer to advise you of your legal rights and options, the easier it is to make informed decisions. Plus, we need to start investigating your accident right away. The insurance companies start their investigations almost immediately, especially on matters involving commercial vehicle insurance policies, so the longer you wait, the more catching up you have to do.
If you didn’t hire an attorney soon after your accident, though, we can still help you with your case. Whether your accident happened today or a few weeks or even months ago, give us a call or contact us online as soon as possible.

Can a lawyer help me fill out paperwork after an accident?
Yes. Fort Worth car accident lawyers can assist in filling out insurance company-required paperwork after an accident. We understand you might have never filed a claim before. We understand that it can be overwhelming when insurance companies use confusing language and require large amounts of paperwork to be filed on tight deadlines. Insurance companies deal with car accident claims every day. That’s why some insurance companies may try to pay you as little as possible after your accident. We can make sure you submit the most accurate and detailed information possible – while not falling for the tricks insurance companies play to keep money out of your pocket.

Can a lawyer negotiate with insurance companies?
After an accident, you may find that you’re pressured, even bulled by insurance company adjusters and other representatives into accepting an unreasonably low settlement that doesn’t cover the true cost of your injuries. However, just because they’ve made the offer doesn’t mean you have to accept it. Attorney Coby L. Wooten, P.C. has over 30 years of experience negotiating with insurance companies to obtain maximum compensation for each client. We’ve successfully obtained significant settlements and verdicts for our clients – and we have the case results to prove it.

That decision is ultimately up to you, and we will only do so at your discretion, after every possible legal option has been explored.
