Should I Speak With a Car Accident Lawyer After a Minor Collision? By Larry A. Tawwater on March 15, 2024

If you have been involved in a seemingly minor car accident, you may not feel that talking to a lawyer is necessary or even worth your time. The truth is, not seeking legal help could cause you to leave money on the table that you need to fully recover from your accident.

Here is some important information I believe my Oklahoma City, OK, clients need to know about fender bender injuries and your legal options. If you need an attorney, the team at The Tawwater Law Firm can help.

Many Auto Accident Injuries Are Slow to Develop

A car wreck can cause your adrenaline and endorphins to spike, temporarily numbing you to the pain you would have otherwise felt from your crash. In addition, some injuries simply take longer to produce noticeable symptoms.

It is quite possible that you may suffer from neck, back, shoulder, or abdominal pain that does not present itself until days or weeks after your accident. Seeing a lawyer can encourage you to make appointments with a doctor who can protect your health and generate key medical records we may need to win your claim.

There Are Many Types of Compensation in Car Accident Cases

It is sometimes the case that car crash victims do not pursue potentially winning lawsuits because they are simply unaware of all the avenues of compensation at their disposal. Even if the physical injuries that you suffered are not life-changing, you can be compensated for them, along with other damages like lost wages, medical bills, and property damage.

Even in a lawsuit with no physical injuries, you may be able to sue for the emotional distress you suffered as a result of another party’s unsafe driving. The only way to find out if you are indeed eligible for compensation following a minor accident is by speaking to proven attorneys who know how to evaluate any case’s potential success.

We Can Deal With Uncooperative Insurance Companies

Depending on the make and model of your vehicle, just an accident involving property damage can add up to tens of thousands of dollars. Because Oklahoma is an at-fault state, you will be dealing with the other driver’s insurance company.

Even in a clear-cut case of responsibility, the offending driver’s insurance company may try to deny or minimize your claims for damages. As a car accident lawyer who has handled many complex cases, I know the tactics insurers use to fight justified claims. If possible, I can put the pressure on them necessary to get you the money you need for your losses.
