Why You Need Help from Our Lawyers After a Car Crash in Manhattan

If you have been in a car accident in Manhattan, you could be thinking about whether to pursue an insurance claim on your own. You may be worried about the cost of hiring a lawyer to help you with your case. But having legal counsel after a car crash can offer you significant benefits that will likely help you recover more compensation than you would if you tried to handle your car accident claim on your own. Insurance companies typically take people much more seriously when they are represented by counsel. 

Being represented by a car crash lawyer in Manhattan from The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., means you have an advocate who will:

  • Independently investigate the accident to determine its cause, all potentially liable parties, and all sources of insurance coverage
  • Identify all your injuries and expenses, including future anticipated costs and needs
  • Handle communications and negotiations with the insurance company or opposing legal counsel on your behalf to protect your interests
  • Build a persuasive case for your benefit by using their legal knowledge and experience 
  • Take your case to trial if that becomes the best option for seeking maximum compensation
