Why Do You Need a Lawyer After a Car Accident?

Getting compensation after an auto accident where you got hurt and weren’t at fault should be a simple process. After all, that’s why auto insurance is required to legally drive in Missouri, right? Unfortunately, that couldn’t be any further from the truth. In reality, insurance companies are reluctant to pay victims any money, let alone the minimum amount, even when their accidents were caused by negligent or reckless drivers.

Insurance companies make huge profits every year, and a big reason for that is because they’re good at reducing or denying claims across the board. They’re able to do that because many claimants make small mistakes before or during the claims process. Insurers have teams of adjusters whose primary job is to find ways to pay claimants as little as possible, and they accomplish that by reviewing all of the facts of the case and from every possible angle. When they find a weakness or a mistake, they exploit it as much as possible.
