No one is ever truly prepared for a car accident. Even the most conscientious driver, who has their affairs in order, can be ready for the moment when they’re struck by another vehicle. Driving safely, driving defensively, are good ideas at any time - but, there’s no foolproof way to ensure that you’re never hit by another car. When you are injured in a vehicular accident, you need plenty of help right away. Our car accident attorneys and lawyers can help quickly, as well as throughout the entire process. From the moment we take your case, you become our top priority, making sure that you get as much compensation as possible.
The period after a car accident can be chaotic. Even if it seems like you haven’t been injured, the best course of action is to get immediate medical care. However, that can be challenging. Hopefully, you have quality medical insurance. If you don’t, it’s natural to feel like you should try to go without getting medical care. That’s a bad idea. That can have severe negative repercussions on your health as well as make it that much more difficult to get the compensation that you deserve. As with so much else, we can help. Moreover, we can help quickly.
Big Ben Lawyers works entirely on contingency. That means we don’t get paid unless you do. You’ve probably heard a million different lawyers say that. What it means is that the payment for our work comes out of your eventual settlement. So, if you don’t win your case or get a settlement, we don’t get anything. Thus, we have all of the motivation in the world to represent your case as aggressively as possible.

Thus, you’ll be able to get the medical care you need for your vehicular accident without paying a dime out of your own pocket. That way, you’ll be able to get help, recover, all while we press your case, getting you your due compensation.
Finding the Truth
Many people don’t realize this, but a major part of car accident cases is establishing exactly what happened. You might think: “OK, I was in the car accident, so I know what happened: the other person hit me with their car.” While that may be true, the other side is going to do everything in their power to obfuscate, to make it seem like that’s not what happened. They’ll have trained, experienced investigators on their side who will do what they can to prove that it was your fault, or somehow not entirely the fault of their client.
As experienced car accident attorneys, we have a network of investigators we can call on at any time. We can put them to work in your case to figure out exactly what happened and why. From there, we can use the information that they glean to put together that much more compelling a case for you. This can help to figure out all of the parties that you should receive compensation from.
To use an example, say that you’re injured in a vehicular accident that’s someone else’s fault. They were driving recklessly, they crashed into you. Obviously, the driver would be at fault. However, it’s also entirely possible that there was something wrong with their vehicle, or the quality of the road, or any number of other factors. That could mean that the manufacturers also owe you money, as well as local municipalities, and other parties. We draw upon our experience to make sure that all of the parties who are at fault are held responsible.
Getting Representation Quickly
The last thing anyone wants to do after a vehicular accident is to go to the trouble to reach out to an attorney. There’s so much else to do, so much to have to deal with. Between figuring out or if you’re going to be able to work, your medical care, your family, transportation, and so much else, calling an attorney can seem like the absolute bottom of the “to do'' list. However, you may want to put it towards the top.
For example, we can provide answers fast. We can help you to determine if you need a rental car or connect you to somewhere that can help. Beyond that, we can also let you know what there is to know about your case. Here at the Benjamin Law Firm, we’ve been doing this for a long time. So, while every case and client are different, odds are that we’ve handled a case like yours in the past. That means we can let you know, more or less, what you can expect from your case. Then, we get right to work ensuring that you get as much as possible.
To return to the investigation that we mentioned, calling us sooner ensures that we can start that investigation sooner. Unfortunately, evidence can be removed or disappear. There’s nothing nefarious about this, it’s just that tire marks wash away, damaged or totaled cars are removed and destroyed, witnesses move away, and so forth. The sooner you can reach out to us, the sooner we can get our professionals to work on the investigation that’s going to help your case.
The Insurance Company
Another good reason to reach out to us early: less time to have to deal with the insurance company. It’s natural to think that, since you pay your insurance company, the insurance company adjuster is there to help you. Unfortunately, they are not. In fact, they’re there to harm your case, to ensure that you receive as little compensation as possible. This is not an exaggeration, this is their literal job. While they may seem perfectly kind, pleasant, and friendly, they are speaking to you at all times as a member of the insurance company. As with so much else in regards to car accident cases, we can help here, too.
The insurance claims adjuster has many tools at their disposal to make certain that you receive as little compensation as possible for your injuries. It could be that they try to get you to say that your injuries “aren't that bad,” “mostly OK,” or some other kind of phrase that could potentially be used against you. Or, alternatively, they might try to get you to sign a deal early before you talk to an attorney. Perhaps yours will be the first case in recorded history where the insurance company offered someone injured in an accident a good settlement before they spoke to an attorney. Odds are, however, that's not the case
Instead, they’ll offer you something that’s far, far less than you deserve. They know how much your case is worth, your pain, and everything that you’ve had to go through. Thus, their job is to make sure that you get less than that. Should they do so, they succeed. We can keep that from happening.
For example, when you reach out to us and we take your case, then you’re done with having to deal with the insurance claims adjuster. You don’t have to be party to their tricks and gimmicks anymore. Instead, they have to go through us. It’s one more way that we can help you to get as much as you deserve for all that you’ve been through.
Compensation for Your Injuries
The sheer number of different kinds of injuries that a person can suffer in a car accident case is almost impossibly long. Over the years, we’ve helped so many folks who were injured in any number of ways to get the compensation as well as the care that they need. That said, make sure that you get checked out by a medical professional. We understand the impulse to not do so, to see or feel no immediate damage and to assume that everything is OK.
However, many of the worst injuries don’t reveal themselves right after the accident. They could show up later, only after you’ve returned to work, not filed a case, and so forth. By not reaching out to an attorney as possible, it can make it that much more difficult or receive the right amount of compensation. That doesn’t happen with the Benjamin Law Firm.
The first step towards receiving that compensation, however, is to reach out. We know how the period after a vehicular accident can be one of the most challenging and difficult of a person’s life. With so much to do, calling an attorney can feel almost impossible. That’s why we do everything we can to make the process as easy as possible. When you want to talk to us, we’ll be here. We’re always glad to sit down with potential clients, to talk to them about their accidents, their injuries, and how we may ultimately be able to help. To do so, call us today.
