Do I Need a Motor Vehicle Accident Attorney?
Why Do I Need an Attorney After a Vehicle Accident?
Some minor accidents, such as fender benders with no injuries and little property damage to the vehicles, seem straightforward enough to handle on your own — but beware. Even a fender bender can result in a soft tissue injury such as whiplash or neck pain. In addition, either side’s insurance company may try to deny the claim. So, it is difficult to say that even simple vehicle accidents are something you should handle by yourself.
Insurance companies will offer you money. But they will try to settle quickly and cheaply — a dime on the dollar, or less. For maximum compensation, you need a skilled and respected lawyer like Scott J. Corwin.

Serious Accidents Require Serious Representation
When significant damage and injuries are involved, you definitely need a lawyer on your side. Most people simply are not aware of their rights and options after an accident. Many have no idea that they can sue their own insurance company if a valid claim is denied.
Perhaps most significantly, people who suffer serious injuries or lose a family member in an accident are often unaware of what challenges they will face in the weeks, months, and years after the accident. A catastrophic injury or wrongful death will affect you and your family for years, or potentially for a lifetime. The medical bills alone could have a drastic impact on your finances, even with health insurance. If you lost a wage-earning member of your family, the loss of future wages and benefits can significantly affect your family’s wellbeing.
With an experienced, compassionate attorney on your side, you will not have to worry about these things. Attorney Scott J. Corwin understands how to handle the insurance company for you and ensure you receive the maximum amount you are entitled to under the law. He can also help you seek the medical care you need if you are having difficulty getting quality care.
