When Do I Need an Austin Car Accident Attorney?

If you were injured in a car accident in Austin, you may be concerned that the cost of hiring an Austin car accident attorney is more than it's really worth. You're already trying to budget for potential car repairs, medical bills, and the days you've missed from work - why pay more for a lawyer?

You May Be Able to Handle the Insurance Settlement on Your Own

Although other accident attorneys may not want to tell you this, it is possible to go it alone after a wreck where the fault is clear or there were no injuries.

In some cases, however, a Texas car wreck is not as cut and dried. Although you'd like to avoid the cost of hiring a lawyer to help, there's a good possibility that doing without will actually COST you money in the long run.

For example, you should at least talk to an Austin car accident lawyer if:

  • You were seriously injured and needed expensive medical care.

  • You were injured in the wreck and are now disabled or require ongoing care.

  • Fault in the accident is not clear.

  • Any child was injured in the accident.

  • The accident was complicated and will need further investigation.

  • The insurance adjustor asks you for medical records from before the date of accident.

  • The insurance company makes you an offer that you feel is too low.

  • The claims process seems to be taking a long time.

Car accidents can be complicated, and the insurance companies want to pay you as little as possible. They will do everything in their power to stack the deck against you, and they do this every day.
