When a driver harms another person in a car accident, the injured person may have the right to receive damages in the form of financial compensation. There are many causes of car accidents, including human error, equipment malfunction, adverse road or climate conditions, negligence on the part of another driver or passenger, or other causes beyond your control. Even injury victims who believe they were partially at fault for an accident may have the right to compensation.
The legal issues surrounding car accidents and traffic laws can be complex and overwhelming. This is why it is critical that anyone who has been injured in a car accident consult with an experienced, qualified personal injury attorney that can handle any type of car accident case.
Getting your life back on track after a car accident can take more than just time, good insurance, or a great support system. It also takes a trustworthy, dependable, and responsive legal team that can evaluate your case and provide guidance on how to deal with insurance and the legal system in pursuit of the financial compensation that you deserve to make you whole.
After a Car Accident: Time is Critical
The days immediately following a car accident can be a vulnerable time for victims. Not only are you suffering from your injuries, but you may also be accruing medical bills, missing time from work, and missing time with loved ones or needing to arrange for extra childcare or other services to allow you to get through the day. These types of losses and expenses may be reimbursable, though an initial settlement offer made by the at-fault driver's insurance company will rarely reflect them.
In addition to making unfairly low settlement offers, it is a common practice for insurance companies to aggressively pressure victims into settling for less than they are owed for their injuries. The sooner you contact a car accident lawyer, the sooner you can even the field with the insurance company and show them that you have someone who will fight for what you are owed.
