If you are injured in a car accident, seek immediate medical attention. If you are able to remain on the scene, attempt to gather as much information as you can – identify witness and obtain their statements, take photos if you have a camera, and make detailed notes about what happened.
You are often required to give a statement to police. However, you should avoid talking to a person whom might be responsible or negligent – the other driver– or their insurance representative.
You should consult an attorney as soon as possible after being injured in a car accident. In most cases there are time limits for filing claims after an injury occurs, and if this deadline passes, your claim could be dismissed. In addition, finding witnesses and gathering evidence to support your case becomes more difficult the longer you wait.
An attorney experienced in representing car accident victims and negotiating with insurance companies can analyze your case and determine fair compensation for your losses, including past and future losses. Medical problems caused by a car accident may not be fully recognized for months or even years after the accident. Losses from medical bills, decreased earning potential, and many other problems can raise the value of your claim. Further, dealing with medical bills and insurance company negotiations on your own can be a harrowing experience.
A host of factors impact the amount of your compensation, including the extent of your injuries, physical and mental pain and suffering, the amount and length of medical treatment, economic hardship or financial loss, decreased earning potential, and physical impairment and/or disfigurement. An experienced personal injury lawyer can best estimate the value of your claim.
Adjusters work for the insurance company, not for you. Their job is to settle the matter for the lowest possible cost to the company. Before accepting a settlement, it is always in your best interest to consult an attorney. An attorney will work for you and ensure that a settlement results in full compensation for your injuries, including money for unanticipated medical expenses.
Many car accident claims can be settled for their full value without you having to go to court. However, some complex cases, or cases the insurance company refuses to settle, may require that you participate in legal proceedings.
Each case is unique. Generally, your medical treatment should be complete, and all your bills accounted for before a settlement is reached.
If we take your case, we work on a contingency fee basis. This means you owe us nothing unless we recover on your claim
