The car accident insurance process can be just as painful as the accident itself, and even more complicated. As personal injury attorneys, we talk to clients on a daily basis regarding their situation after a car accident. Mostly, we are talking about minor injury cases involving subjective injuries that resolve within a few months, and other claims where the injuries are not substantial. After a car accident, an attorney can help you recover money for damage to your car, secure funds for costly medical treatment, and collect evidence to show that you were not at fault in the accident. When liability after a car accident is contested, an investigation may become necessary to establish negligence. In some personal injury accident cases involving an uninsured or underinsured claim, the case is legally a breach of contract claim that may obligate the client to give a recorded statement. If you need to collect evidence about your car accident, you may need to hire a lawyer.
It is important to obtain a lawyer to ensure all processes are accomplished correctly and in a timely manner. You may need to comply with certain rules in order to sue You may need to file a police report or file notice within a given period of time. Certain states allow drivers to recover a settlement for pain and suffering and lost wages from their own insurers. The insurance company tells you they would like to settle the matter. The insurance adjuster may take a long time to investigate how to pay you the least amount for your injuries. We advise clients all the time about whether or not an insurance company is offering them a fair settlement based on their specific situation. Efficiency and professionalism may be the foundation to build a relationship between both client and hired lawyer.
