It’s incredibly overwhelming to navigate the aftermath of a serious car accident. You have medical bills, vehicle damage, and a million questions about what comes next.
For these reasons, you need a car accident lawyer to guide you through the legal process and get you the compensation you deserve. Here are three things that experienced Boulder car accident attorney Chris Jeffress can do for you.
1. Stop You from Accepting a Bad Settlement
You may be tempted to accept the first financial offer that comes your way after a car accident. Not only do you have mounting bills to pay, but you want to put this whole experience behind you as soon as possible.
However, not all settlements will be enough to cover the financial burden of your accident. Accepting a low offer can make it so that you are unable to pay for certain expenses down the road. Mr. Jeffress will calculate the real value of your car accident claim and demand that amount on your behalf.
2. Obtain Evidence
It’s always a good idea to take photos of your accident and talk to witnesses at the scene. These steps can help protect your claim. However, additional evidence may be required to prove that the other party was at fault.
Mr. Jeffress can gather and analyze police reports, traffic camera footage, and black box data from your car. He can interview witnesses and examine the nature and extent of your vehicle damage. These pieces of evidence will support your story and help you make a stronger argument for compensation.
3. Deal with Insurance Companies
Mr. Jeffress used to work for insurance companies. He learned inside information that he will put to work for you. He knows how to interact with insurance adjusters to maximize the value of your case.
It’s difficult to deal with a serious car accident on your own. You’ll likely come away with a much lower financial recovery than you anticipated, and you may not receive anything at all. That’s why you need an experienced attorney in your corner.
