People in car accidents are often told to get legal help to make sure their rights are enforced. A study confirms two other key reasons for getting legal help if you are in an auto accident — you will likely receive more money, and you have a better chance of recovering money.
The study was conducted by the respected Rand Institute. It found that auto accident victims who hire attorneys receive about 25% more money than auto accident victims who do not hire attorneys — even after deducting all costs.
The study also found that using a lawyer increases an auto accident victim’s chances of recovering money to almost 95%.
