A car accident is always an unwelcome intrusion into your life. There is never a “good time” to be in an accident, and when the accident is serious, it can impact your life for weeks and months to come. In all instances, you need to protect your rights and do whatever it takes to recover as quickly and completely as possible. Retaining an experienced car accident attorney is a critical part of that recovery process. There are many reasons to retain an attorney, some of which are explained below.

An Attorney Can Maximize the Compensation You Can Receive

Unless you are also an attorney, there is no way to fully understand how to maximize the amount of compensation you should receive following an accident. Through years of experience, an attorney will be familiar with how insurance companies work, how to negotiate in your best interests, and how to best represent you if your case must go to trial.

An Attorney Will Allow You to Focus on Healing

Following an accident, if you are injured, you do not need the added stress of dealing directly with insurance companies, medical providers, law enforcement, and others who may play a role in resolving your accident. An attorney will objectively take the vast majority of these responsibilities on, allowing you to focus on a full recovery, allowing you to resume a normal life as soon as possible. Finding the highest degree of peace of mind is critical at a time when you need it the most.

An Attorney Will Employ a Wide Variety of Resources to Protect Your Rights.

Some car accidents are fairly straightforward. Others are much more complicated, and it can be difficult to work through the process to prove that you are entitled to compensation. Because attorneys deal with personal injury cases all the time, they will know what resources to bring to bear, including accident recreation specialists, medical experts, forensic specialists and many others who will bring a high degree of credibility to your case.

Client Reviews


I had been arrested for driving while under suspension for DUI, which carries a mandatory minimum 30 days in jail. In spite of the objections from the prosecutor, Attorney Shalvoy was able to convince the Judge to waive the jail term and only imposed a fine.
