Did you know that human memory is not reliable at all? Most people feel that they can remember very minute details, particularly of major events, but this usually proves not to be the case when it’s put to the test. For people who have been in an accident, this can become a real problem.

Your Settlement Compensation is On The Line

If you’re involved in a car wreck, there are going to be all kinds of people who are going to want you to recall that wreck in the way most advantageous to them. The other driver will want you to forget their negligence and the part it played in your wreck. Your insurance company will want you to remember some minute detail that lets them off of the hook. The only person you can trust in these situations, as far as not trying to get you to say something against your own interests is concerned, is your own personal injury attorney.

How A Personal Injury Attorney Can Help

First, you can tell your attorney anything and they’re not going to show up in court and explain how it makes your claim invalid, even if you misspoke. Your attorney is there to represent your interests and your interests alone. This means that they’re not looking to harm your case when they ask you questions. Tell them anything; they’re there to help you.

Second, they have experts that they can contact and they tend to have a great deal of expertise on their own. This means that they’ve probably seen whatever type of accident you’ve been in before and they’re going to know how anyone responsible for paying you compensation is going to try to get out of it. This means that they’re wary for the same old schemes and that they can keep you safe from falling prey to them.

Third, they know the tricks that the defendants will try use on you. For instance, if you have a very strong case, there’s a good chance that the defendant’s counsel will recommend that they settle to avoid court costs. Sometimes, they’ll approach you directly with what seems like a generous offer and try to get you to go for it without going through your attorney. Don’t do this. If it’s a generous offer and it’s worth it, your attorney isn’t going to try to get you to go to court, instead, just for the sake of going to court. Always talk to your auto accident attorney.

Let your personal injury attorney do the talking for you. The last thing you want to do is be on your own when you should be paid compensation for someone else’s negligence. Your attorney will take care of all of the negotiating and other aspects involved with taking a legal action against someone and will see to it that you’re involved from the start. Like your doctor, however, your attorney has the advantage of being emotionally calm, which allows them to think clearly, intelligently and strategically in ways that put you at the advantage and that represent your interests.
