"Why Do I Need an Accident Lawyer in Sacramento?"
Wednesday, November 16, 2011 by Mark A. Doughty
Should You Represent Yourself If You Are In An Accident?
While it is possible to represent yourself in Sacramento accident litigation, the Law Offices of Mark A. Doughty does not recommend this approach. The following are several reasons to seek an accident lawyer in the Sacramento Area:
A lawyer helps determine what caused your Sacramento accident injuries. It is not always obvious to the victim, or to an ordinary observer, exactly what caused a Sacramento accident. However, an experienced attorney typically has a good idea of which parties may be held responsible for the injuries suffered. Indeed, in an automobile accident, it is not only another driver that can be held accountable for the crash. Motor vehicle manufacturers, automobile mechanics, and even road maintenance crews may all play a part in causing an accident. It requires a lawyer with extensive experience in the laws surrounding accident injuries in Sacramento to determine whether you need to pursue action against more than one person or organization.
A lawyer knows how to hold responsible parties accountable for Sacramento accidents. Unfortunately, it is not enough to simply know that your Sacramento accident injury was caused by the negligence or recklessness of another. You must be able to prove it. A knowledgeable attorney knows how to determine liability for your accident, showing that those who caused it had a responsibility to keep you safe, and that their failure or denial of that responsibility led to your injury.
A lawyer knows policies and procedures for accident litigation in Sacramento. For over thirty years, the Law Offices of Mark A. Doughty has represented victims in Sacramento accident litigation. The average accident victim is not likely to know the courtroom rules and regulations that are required in order to secure a favorable verdict, and therefore needs an attorney with a high level of experience. From important paperwork that needs to be filed, to objections that should be made, it is important to entrust your accident litigation in Sacramento to a skilled attorney.
