Washington DC Car Accident Lawyers
Driving in Washington DC can be an intimidating experience for even the most seasoned driver, and the unfortunate reality is that no matter how skilled and defensive you may be, you are still at the mercy of the drivers you share the road with. Every day, skilled and responsible drivers are injured — or killed — because of another driver’s recklessness, negligence, or otherwise dangerous driving behavior. This is why liability insurance is so important for drivers to carry — and why you should work with an attorney if you have been hurt in a crash.
The team at Balkin & Mausner Injury Lawyers LLP is here to help. We offer a free consultation to those who have been hurt in a car accident in Washington DC and can help you fight for the money you rightfully deserve from the insurance company instead of settling for the money they first offer. When you are hurt in a Washington DC auto accident, it can often sound appealing to simply let the insurance adjuster complete their investigation and write you a check, but when you have an attorney representing your case you have a much better chance of getting the money you deserve, and not just a low settlement that leaves you dealing with many of the financial consequences of someone else’s behavior.

The Benefits Of Working With a Personal Injury Attorney After a DC Car Accident
Many people wrongly assume that hiring a personal injury attorney after a car accident is not financially viable, but that could not be further from the truth. In fact, the team at Balkin & Mausner Injury Lawyers LLP operates on contingency fees, meaning that we take a percentage of the final award, and we don’t take a dollar if we don’t win. For you, this means aggressive legal representation without out-of-pocket costs or concern about how you will pay for our services. In return, you get many benefits — most importantly, a skilled and experienced negotiator fighting for the money you deserve.
Prioritize Your Recovery
When you know that there is a proven, diligent attorney handling your case and communications with the insurance company, you can stay focused on your recovery and your personal needs without taking on the added responsibility. Getting the money you deserve after a car accident takes a lot of time and research, all of which takes away from your personal needs such as your family life, your injuries, and your work. Balkin & Mausner Injury Lawyers LLP can deal with the legal and administrative work while you make sure you get what you need.
Reduce Your Stress
Stress is shown to have a significant impact on recovery from physical injuries, and the combination of dealing with your insurance claim, gathering evidence for your damages, and handling a negotiation with an insurance agent is very stressful. In addition to spearheading your own negotiation, you will need to do extensive research into personal injury law in order to be confident that you are taking the correct approach — all while the insurance company is pushing back by using their long-developed playbook for settling claims.
Increase Your Settlement Amount
The reality is this: unless you have a working knowledge and understanding of personal injury law and insurance claims, you will likely either need to accept a low settlement or hire a professional. Trying to take on an insurance company on your own, especially while you need to prioritize your recovery, can impact your recovery, and it will also probably impact the amount you ultimately take home. A proven personal injury attorney has a functional and practical understanding of this process, and they can dedicate their time to fighting for your money while you work on your health.
Get Sound Legal Advice
One of the most overwhelming parts of an insurance claim is trying to make sense of the seemingly endless amounts of information on the internet that can have wildly different answers to the same questions. Trying to wade through peer-reviewed papers, blogs, articles, and legal documents to get a clear answer is both time-consuming and frustrating for someone who doesn’t understand legalese or needs to account for the many unique variables of their situation. Instead of trying to answer your own questions, working with a Washington DC car accident attorney means that you have someone who can provide you with answers based on the specifics of your case.
The Best Time To Hire a Car Accident Lawyer Is Now
Many people put off hiring a personal injury attorney after their Washington DC car accident until the insurance company makes their initial offer, meaning that they have had a month or more to build a strong argument against giving you the money you deserve. At this point you can definitely benefit from working with an attorney, but your lawyer will have to play catch-up and there may be missteps or issues that they cannot undo. Instead of waiting, contact Balkin & Mausner Injury Lawyers LLP before even initiating your claim so you can have experienced representation every step of the way.
If you are unsure of whether or not an attorney can help you in your situation, take advantage of our free initial consultation and speak directly with a legal professional about your case. Our DC law firm has represented numerous cases that we can look back on to give you a better sense of how your circumstances compare to others, and you can get a recommendation from us about how best to move forward.
