Family Law Attorneys Fight for Families

Many parents fail to realize that they are still co-parents even after a divorce. This means no matter what their feelings are toward each other, their goals should always be geared toward the best interests of their children. I am an attorney practicing family law, and I see parents every day who have forgotten that children should always come first. I hope that this blog will remind people that kids can be terribly hurt when their parents get divorced and that it is up to the adults in their lives to provide a secure foundation where they can feel safe and know that they are cared for. Children are often innocent victims of divorce. Learn how to protect your kids.

Why You Should Hire A Car Accident Injury Attorney Sooner Than Later

If you were injured in a car accident and you believe someone else is responsible, you may be able to get financial restitution for your injuries through the court system. But winning a car accident injury case is not easy, and you will need an expert attorney by your side if you want to emerge victorious. In fact, it's likely a good idea to hire a car accident injury attorney as soon as possible following the accident. 

Free Assessment

First things first, plenty of car accident attorneys will be willing to sit down with you and offer an assessment of your case before you actually hire them and put them on the clock. You will want to bring some evidence to this first meeting, including a copy of the police report or your medical records if you have them. The attorney will assess your claim and give you an overview of what you can expect going forward.

Help With Insurance Agencies

One reason you may want to hire an attorney ASAP is that the insurance companies aren't going to wait to start asking you for information. If you say the wrong thing to the other party's insurance agency or even to your own, this could have a negative effect on your case. Hire an attorney as soon as you get a phone call from an insurer and let the lawyer do the talking.

Hire or Interview Witnesses

Hiring an attorney early on in this process will give them time to find witnesses to the accident, collect video if possible, or find expert witnesses who can testify to the extent of your injuries or other factors.

Encourage a Settlement

A good car accident attorney may be able to get you a deal at the negotiation table without you having to actually go to court. If the other party knows they are guilty, this might be their best option. But your attorney will make sure you get everything you are entitled to and won't fall for a lowball offer from the other side. Also, consider that just hiring an attorney may scare the other party into settling because they know you are serious about going to court.

Represent You While You Heal

If you do need to go to court, your lawyer may be able to file the paperwork and make initial court appearances on your behalf. This could be important if you are still experiencing pain and suffering from the accident and need more time to heal.
