In the wake of a car accident, you might need to deal with a number of parties, including doctors and insurance companies. There are many things coming at you all at once while you are trying to recover from your injuries. There is no doubt that this is a stressful time, and the average human being is limited in the number of things that they can handle at the same time.
One of the first things that you need to consider is how to get compensation for your accident. The one thing that many accident victims do not realize is the amount of legwork that needs to go into your claim. Before you are able to receive a check, there are many steps to the process.
After a car accident, it is not always clear who is to blame. You may be able to receive compensation for your injuries if it can be proven the other driver is at fault. However, the true facts of the accident are not readily apparent.
Much of the work in deciding who is the responsible party happens when the insurance companies are deliberating between themselves. Everything that you say to an insurance company after the accident can be used to decide who is at fault. In the end, you may need to show that the other driver was careless or did something wrong to cause the accident.
After a car accident, it is very important to seek the attention of medical professionals. Doing so means that you will have a clear prognosis, treatment plan, and account of the experience that you have gone through after your injuries. Our physicians can help diagnose your injuries after your accident. We can perform anything from MRIs to more complicated tests such as Computerized Tomography and nerve conductive studies. Our doctors can provide excellent treatment and thorough documentation of your injuries.
You are still not out of the woods even if the other driver is found to be liable. Next, you may have to negotiate with the insurance companies. Those who would attempt the process on their own may never even realize how much they could have received in their settlement agreement. There is almost no such thing as an easy negotiation with the insurance company. If it seems too easy, it means that you are likely settling for too little. Your attorney would assess the settlement offer to see if it was fair. If it is not, they may advise you to reject it and send a demand letter with a counteroffer.
Most cases settle at some point without going into court. But your attorney could advise you that it is necessary to file a lawsuit to get the compensation that you are due. Very few personal injury cases go to trial, but you might need to file a lawsuit in order to force the insurance company to get serious about settling your case. In the event that your case is one of the rare actions that do go to trial, your lawyer would present your arguments to the jury.
