Trouble has the ability to find you on the road, even when you are following all the traffic laws yourself. Not every other driver behind their own wheel pays the same attention as you to the rules that all motorists must follow. Unfortunately, you cannot control what other drivers do, and sometimes, you can pay a physical and financial price for it. Physically, the best you can do is get the best medical care for your injuries (and we can help with that). Financially, you could recover compensation for a car accident if it was someone else’s fault.
Car accidents happen for a number of reasons. In some cases, it truly is an accident with nobody at fault. Otherwise, calling it a car accident is a misnomer because it was caused by someone else’s carelessness. It is not necessarily happenstance when the other driver does something wrong behind the wheel such as:
Unfortunately, when somebody else makes a mistake, it can turn yours and your family’s life upside down when you are in the wrong place at the wrong time.
When you have been injured, there are still many steps between you and the compensation that you may deserve. The first thing is getting your story of what happened from words to provable fact. That is a prerequisite to get a settlement check. However, many car crashes are your word against the other driver’s because very few people admit to being wrong in an accident. This is why evidence is very important. Gathering it can prove difficult, even under the best of circumstances. You may need the following to show what happened in your crash:
This is why you should have an experienced attorney who not only knows how to assemble the evidence, but also how to use it when filing a claim.
Even if the insurance company offers you some money, it is often far from what you legally deserve. In a car accident claim, the insurance company must pay you for the following:
There are many different ways that the insurance company will try to keep you from getting the right-sized check. Your lawyer should be wise to it and ready to fight for you. This happens when you say no to a settlement offer that is far below what you deserve. It also happens when your lawyer goes to court and files a lawsuit to bring the issue to a jury. Every lawyer tells you that they will fight for you, but the real question is whether and how they will do it.
Before you even file a claim, you need to receive a diagnosis of your injuries. At 388CEDA, we offer the following diagnostic and treatment services:
It is not enough to administer tests. Your doctor should comprehensively describe your condition and prognosis in a clear and easy-to-read manner. This is a critical requirement of insurance claims. Additionally, our healthcare professionals can provide thorough and accurate documentation of your injuries and the treatment those injuries received.
Finding the right attorney is a difference maker in your case. Even if liability in your case is more clear-cut, you should have an advocate who knows how to value your claim and negotiate with the insurance company. Not every car accident attorney is the same.
