When to Call a Lawyer after a Car Accident

broken windshield on dashboardIf you’ve ever been in a minor car accident or fender-bender, you probably felt safe leaving the work to your insurance company. After all, if no major damage was caused and no serious injuries were sustained, many people feel comfortable trusting the negotiations to their insurers.

However, if you were involved in an accident in which fault is more complicated, your car was totaled, or your injuries were extensive, you may wish to pursue compensation on your own terms. A car accident attorney in Carroll County, MD, may be exactly what you need to get the reparations you deserve.

In the state of Maryland, people who are in auto accidents have the option of filing a personal injury lawsuit against an at-fault driver. This contrasts directly with no-fault states that require you to utilize your personal injury protection coverage from your own policy first.

Retaining an attorney is, thankfully, not a complex process. In fact, most attorneys, like our own David McFadden, will provide you with a free consultation to determine whether they can assist you with your case. This can be helpful for those who have never been in a serious car accident before, or people who are unfamiliar with these kinds of legal proceedings.
