When Should I Call a Lawyer After my San Antonio Car Wreck?

If you’ve recently experienced a San Antonio car wreck accident and find yourself sitting there thinking “when should I call a lawyer after my San Antonio car wreck?”, now is probably the time to call. Why now? The best way to explain the importance of time and securing an attorney after an automobile wreck is to relate it to a doctor. If you have chest pain, you don’t wait to see what it will turn into. You go to your doctor who can best diagnosis what you’re dealing with and then guide you on how to address the situation. So it is with a car accident.

The attorneys at Carabin Shaw are trained to identify all the potential barriers that might impact a full settlement of your auto accident. As attorneys, we know what factors the insurance company will be considering when determining what to offer you in a settlement; and we also know they will try to pay out the bare minimum. When you choose a Carabin Shaw attorney to represent you, you will be choosing a lawyer who will fight to see that you receive full compensation for your all pain and suffering, for today and for your future.

We will ensure that the adjuster with the insurance company considers the severity of your injuries, or those of your loved ones if others were injured as a result of the accident. We will make certain they take into consideration all medical bills, lost wages from missed work, and the impact of your injuries on your future ability to work and earn a living. If there is a long term impact to your health we will fight to insure that you receive compensation to provide for your future and that of your family’s.

Timing Questions

As you determine “when should I call a lawyer after my San Antonio car wreck?” following are points to consider for yourself or loved ones who may have been injured in the accident, because they will impact your settlement:

  • Have you sought medical care as a result of the accident?

  • Do you require ongoing medical care?
  • Do you require ongoing physical therapy?
  • Was surgery required as a result of the accident?
  • Will you require future surgeries?
  • Have you been told you are facing lifelong disabilities as a result of the accident?
  • Did a loved one die as a result of the accident?
  • Is the police report inaccurate, making you appear at fault?
  • Were there witnesses who saw the other driver’s actions and can attest to your innocence?
  • Is the insurance company wanting you to settle for an unacceptable amount?
  • Is the insurance company pressuring you to settle when you’re not ready?

If you said yes to 2 or more of the points above, now is the time to call a lawyer. At Carabin Shaw, our attorneys in San Antonio are here to help. We can guide you in the negotiation of a compensation package for repairs or replacement of your vehicle.

And Remember:
