Auto Accident? When an Attorney is Necessary

car accidents

You may be asking yourself, “Do I need an attorney?” not knowing whether or not your case warrants our services. We’ve provided you with a few scenarios where the assistance of an Albuquerque attorney such as Parnall Law Firm, could help you get the proper financial compensation you need so you can begin to move on with your life after a devastating car, motorcycle, or trucking accident.

You have suffered an injury

If you have suffered an injury because another motorist hit you through no fault of your own, it’s strongly encouraged that you consult an attorney. Whether you have sustained life threatening injuries, or minor ones such as whiplash that have impaired your ability to work or live your life as you would normally, you could be entitled to compensation. Be sure that you visit your doctor immediately – we can use their assessment to build a case in your favor.

An accident caused damage to your property

Perhaps a truck switched lanes without signaling and hit your motorcycle. Maybe a car lost control and swerved onto your property, damaging a part of your home. Whether it’s your vehicle, house, or some other type of property that’s been damaged as a result of an accident, enlisting the help of a lawyer would be wise. Why should you find yourself out of pocket because of costly repairs? An attorney may be able to get the compensation you need to cover your losses.

Improper road signage caused you to crash

If a road isn’t signposted adequately and you crash as a result, you should speak to an attorney. Maybe there wasn’t enough signage in the area, or there was a misleading sign that should not have been there at all. Either way, the accident is not your fault, and you could be entitled to compensation.

Workmen didn’t clear or signpost a road

Sometimes workmen fail to clear a road of debris or tools, or neglect to signpost work areas sufficiently. Such scenarios can lead to accidents with devastating results. The damage may even be worse on roads with high volumes of traffic, where lots of people can be caught up in such accidents. Don’t hesitate to speak to an attorney if you have had an accident under such circumstances.

If you experienced any of the above scenarios but initially chose to forego the help of an attorney, it may not be too late to get compensation for your losses.
