If you have been in an accident and have suffered injuries, loss of pay, pain, mental anguish, or other problems due to the accident, then you want to get yourself a lawyer immediately. Here are some of the reasons for hiring a lawyer like those at Lerner, Piermont & Riverol, P.A.
Your lawyer will stay focused on the important issues
Once you have a lawyer, you won't need to stress out about what you need to do, what you should do, what you shouldn't do, and what you can't do. Here are some of the things the lawyer is going to take care of on your behalf.
Keep track of your expenses: You want to save all of your receipts for anything related to your accident. There may be some things that you would never think could go into your accident file, so its best to save any receipt you aren't sure of and give it to your lawyer, so they can tell you whether or not it is useful. For example, you may not be sure whether the gas you put in the car to drive to see your lawyer counts, so you would save this receipt and give it to them.
Talk to and obtain investigators and experts. If there is anything that needs to be investigated, or if there is a reason to have an expert in a specific field that your lawyer wants to bring in on your case, then they will find them, secure them, and handle all communications with them.
Decide when to start the lawsuit process: Sometimes, it is best to not begin any lawsuit activities right away. As soon as a lawsuit begins, it opens a can of worms and allows other people in the case to start having access to some of your information. For this reason, your lawyer may feel it is best to hold off until they feel the time is right to start the proceedings.
Follow through with discovery: The discovery part of the proceedings is where your lawyer will go over the case and all information with a fine tooth comb, looking for false claims and statements coming from the other side and looking for things that make your case stronger. This is part of the process that is extremely important when it comes to your case being strong and you getting a fair settlement.
Get the best results: It's well known that people who go with lawyers tend to get better results than those who don't have lawyers. You are going to want to be one of these people.
