The attorney can help you discuss with the Lien Holders
When someone gets benefits from a body such as the disability or workers’ or health compensation insurer, the insurer in question then holds a lien on that claim, implying that the lien holders have to be paid before you receive the payment. Your car accident lawyer will play a significant role in engaging the lien holder in cutting down its lien. This leaves more money to you than it would have been without that lawyer’s engagement.
Discussing your settlement
Negotiating an agreement as a result of the car accident requires someone with experience in car accident cases. This requires competence of the highest possible order. Otherwise, you risk getting a poor deal.
