Whether you are commuting to work or going away for the weekend, there are many dangers driving on the highway. Unfortunately, the more you are exposed to highway traffic, the higher the risk for accident.
Not all highway accidents result in lawsuits. But, when your injuries are not covered by insurance or you are getting the run around from the other party’s insurance company, then a lawsuit may be the only way to recover your losses.
Deciding when you can sue in a highway accident isn’t easy, especially if multiple cars were involved. It is best to speak to a car accident attorney before filing your claim.
Is the Driver Denying Fault?
After an accident, most people admit fault. But, you may have a driver who refuses to admit it was his or her fault or claim that you are partially to blame for the accident. Do not worry if someone is trying to point the finger at you. Ultimately, your attorney can help prove who was at fault through investigative work, evidence, and police reports. Also, if the other driver was cited for not following traffic laws, then this will help prove your case.

Insurance Adjusters are Offering a Lowball Settlement
Insurance companies are in the business of making money. Even if the other party admits it was their fault, their insurer may be reluctant to offer up a worthy settlement – or they will purposely lowball you with an excuse. Never accept a low settlement from an insurance company. An attorney will negotiate with insurance agents and get you the settlement you deserve.
How Serious Were Your Injuries?
If you have serious injuries in a highway accident, then you need a car accident attorney. Often insurance agencies cannot compute long-term damages – nor will they offer enough funds to cover the long-term medical costs and wage losses. So, if you do not receive enough coverage from insurance companies, then you may want to file a lawsuit.
