Why Should You Hire a Lawyer After an Auto Accident?

Many people are reluctant to take the steps to hire a lawyer after being involved in a car accident. We know it can be confusing, scary, and intimidating to reach out for help.

At Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie, we are constantly asked the same question: “Do I even need to hire a lawyer?  Is it even necessary?”

And the answer is always YES.

Hiring a lawyer is similar to a safety net. You might not need it, but having it accessible and ready to take action is a great resource.

Our compassionate and experienced attorneys are fully aware some injuries are not that easy to “bounce back” from at times. Depending on the type of injury, your mind might be focused on trying to heal and recover, and that is where we enter. We can handle the details, specifics, and help you while you are focused on healing. The hard truth is for those who have serious injuries is that your recovery process is unfortunately linked to your bank account. Which is exactly why you need to hire a professional to acquire every dollar you are entitled to in the end.

As far as entering a courtroom, we know it can seem overwhelming. Many clients think going to trial is like what they see on TV and they want the opportunity to tell their story, but it’s not like on TV—and after they’ve been through a deposition, which can take a lot of time, etc., they realize they don’t want to go to trial. Trials most often translate into more expenses and less money that we can recover for our clients. They are time-consuming, emotionally draining, and often end in a settlement negotiation. And, of course, there is the potential of the ultimate risk of walking away with nothing.

95% of personal injury cases are settled and a small percentage go to trial. For those that do go to trial, 57% of the plaintiffs in car accidents who choose to sue succeed over the defendants in trial, according to the federal Bureau of Justice Statistics.

You can count on our attorneys to be with you each step of the way. If we were to recommend that you go to trial, it would be because the benefits of going to trial dominate the risk of losing. We are always one step ahead and we plan for your case to unexpectedly go to trial from the second we meet with you. We’ve got all your bases covered!

Life is full of unexpected circumstances and no one expects to be in a car accident or endure any sort of injury due to another person’s negligence. At Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie, our Orange County car accident lawyers have been helping our clients overcome serious accidents for over 40 years and get their lives back on track. We know what it takes to win, and we’ve successfully resolved thousands of cases, collecting hundreds of millions of dollars for our clients.
