Car accidents happen every minute of every day in the USA. Thankfully not all car accidents result in serious injuries or fatalities, but when they do, it is important for the victim to know what actions should be taken to preserve the right to full compensation. It is not uncommon to be dazed and confused after being involved in an accident. You may have even suffered lacerations or broken bones. If you know what to do following a car accident, it can go a long way towards helping you recover the compensation you need.
One of the first things your insurance company wants you to do after being involved in a car accident is to contact them and report the accident. It is important that you do so. We advise you obtain legal counsel immediately after reporting your accident. Our firm will be able to review the circumstances leading up to your accident, advise you of your legal rights and help you prepare your insurance claim or and will help you to pursue the maximum compensation for all damages from the guilty party's insurance company.
Insurance companies, even your own, may not have your best interests as the focus of how your claim is managed. As a rule, these companies are primarily interested in their own bottom line. They do not like having insurance claims remain open, even in cases where it is necessary to do an in-depth investigation to determine liability in the car accident. They want to settle for the lowest amount possible, and will try to do so. Don't be a victim of this practice. You may get a quick settlement offer from your insurance company or the other driver's insurance company. You may have been told that it is best offer you can hope to receive. You may also hear that you are partially or fully at fault and that you are not eligible to file a lawsuit or claim for other accident-related expenses such as physical therapy, rehabilitation, loss of income, and more.
