Motor Accident Lawyers Adelaide.

What does a motor vehicle accident lawyer do? 

A Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyer is a specialist legal professional that is a subset of personal injury law. If you have been in a car, truck, motorcycle or bus accident this type of Lawyer will help their clients to navigate the legal system. They will also advocate for you to assist to recover damages for their injuries. 

Some of the tasks completed by a motor vehicle accident lawyer include: 

Investigating the Accident. 

The Lawyer may interview witnesses, take photos of the accident scene, review police reports and other relevant documents. 

Evaluate Injuries.

The Lawyer needs to understand the nature and extent of your injuries, and work out how much compensation they should seek from Insurance companies.

Negotiate with Insurance Companies.

Insurance companies will typically try to settle claims for as little as possible. The Lawyer’s job is to negotiate on behalf of you, to reach a fair and just settlement.

Dealing with the Courts.

If a settlement cannot be reached with the insurer, then the Lawyer may file a lawsuit. The aim of the lawsuit will be to seek fair compensation through the court system. In South Australia this will likely be via the Magistrates Court. 

Court Representation.

The Lawyer will handle all the processes and appearances as the matter leads to trial. On the trial date the Lawyer will argue your case and seek to prove your entitlement to compensation. 

In summary, a motor vehicle accident lawyer will help you to navigate the legal process, advocate for your rights, and assist to recover the right amount of compensation to be able to move on from the accident. 

An important note is that many motor accident claims do not go to trial and most cases settle out of court. The whole settlement process will be handled by the Law firm.
