In most traffic accidents, the lawyer is never called into question. You go down from the vehicle, fill in the CID establishing the relevant faults and at the end, the insurance compensates the damages.
However, there are cases in which the presence of a lawyer is essential to protect the injured party. But what are these car accident cases? Here are the situations in which you absolutely must call the lawyer after a road accident.
When to call the lawyer and how to proceed
Addressing a good lawyer is essential in the presence of road accidents that in addition to things have also involved people and for whom the procedure for damages is difficult.
To obtain compensation the first thing that the lawyer must do is send a request by registered letter a / r with attached all the necessary documentation. Be careful though. If after the accident the authorities intervened, the companies do not liquidate the damage until the accident report arrives. The latter is delivered (at the express request of the party) after 30-60 days if the accident did not cause injuries and after 90-120 days if instead there were injured. However, in the presence of serious injuries, deaths or lawsuit filed by one of the parties, a criminal proceeding is opened and for obtaining the incident report the pm’s go-ahead is required.
Once the lawyer has sent the claim for damages you must determine the quantum of which you are entitled, taking into account all possible variables (damage to the vehicle, physical damage, moral damages, reimbursement for medical expenses, reduction of income, etc.).
When everything is ready you get to negotiate with the liquidator to get compensation for damages. A negotiation that will end positively if the practice has been well-educated and the liquidator has, in turn, a lawyer as an interlocutor. In the end, if everything goes smoothly the injured party is compensated, while otherwise, it will be necessary to go before a judge.
