by William Mattar | December 4th, 2018

The city of Buffalo and its suburbs have many miles of roads. Most people in Buffalo do their best to drive safely and responsibly. However, sometimes accidents happen and then people have to make decisions. If you are injured in an accident, one of the decisions you have to make is whether, and, if so, when, to hire a lawyer. It is a very important decision and the timing has to be right for you to maximize compensation.

Why am I Hiring a Lawyer?

The primary reason you will hire a lawyer after a Buffalo car accident is to make sure the insurance company does not try to go cheap on your settlement. Since you have no legal or insurance training, you do not know how to put together a reasonable compensation offer that will account for your pain and suffering. You are entitled to pain and suffering and the insurance company likely will not mention that. You are hiring a lawyer to protect yourself, your rights, and your best interests.

When do I Hire a Lawyer?

You need to hire an attorney before you talk to the insurance company. If you make and sign a deal with the insurance company, a Buffalo lawyer is not going to be able assist you. That is why you should generally hire an attorney to negotiate with the insurance company and protect your interests.
