What Does a Car Accident Lawyer Do?

Although the specific tasks that a car accident attorney takes on will vary from case to case, in most circumstances, you can expect that a car accident attorney will help you with your case by:

  • Advising you as to your legal rights and options at each stage of your claim
  • Handling communications with the insurance companies
  • Investigating the accident to recover all available evidence to prove fault for the crash
  • Requesting and organizing your medical records to establish the types and severity of your injuries
  • Collaborating with your treating medical providers to help prove your injuries and losses, including bringing your doctors and other medical experts in to testify
  • Working with lienholders in your case, such as health insurers or workers’ compensation insurers, to arrange for the satisfaction of those liens while ensuring that you get the maximum amount of money possible from any settlement or verdict you obtain
  • Negotiating with insurance adjusters or defense attorneys to try to reach a fair and full settlement
  • Filing your claim in court and advocating on your behalf at trial, if necessary

What People are Saying


West Palm Beach, Florida
They made the whole process really easy. They updated me with what was going on with my car insurance, they helped me out with where to go to get a car rental. They knew my case, they knew who I was, and they could really just guide me toward the right direction.

When I came over here, they treated me like family. I really appreciate it. I referred them to a couple of friends. I explained to my friends and family how the office treated me so good.
