Ask a Car Accident Lawyer: Personal Injury Lawyer Explains the Basics of a Personal Injury Case

A car crash is something you don’t plan for. No one thinks about a personal injury attorney until they find themselves injured in an auto accident. Then the question becomes what to do next. Do I need a car accident lawyer? When to hire a car accident attorney? How bad do my injuries have to be to even need a lawyer? And how do I evaluate pain and suffering?

I spent some time with personal injury attorney and good friend Jarrett Johnson to get a comprehensive look, from a legal point of view, of what this process is like for someone who has been injured. How difficult are the insurance settlements, and for insight into some of the reasons to hire a lawyer after a car accident.

Personal injury attorneys can have a bad rap. That is why you will appreciate hearing from Jarrett. He is honest, straightforward and will give you a real picture of what to expect. There are two sides to every coin. Insurance companies have lawyers who try to make sure you get the least amount possible. Therefore, you want to have someone there who can defend you and make sure you get paid back the proper personal injury case value,

No matter how small the wreck, you want a personal injury attorney who acts on your behalf in dealing with the insurance company and guides you through the process.

This video will answer the basic questions you may have about getting a personal injury attorney after a car accident and what you can expect in settlement amounts.
