If you’ve been injured in a car accident, talk to one of the car accident lawyers in our network free. Car accident cases can be more complicated than you might imagine, requiring technical evidence, expert witnesses, and very specific legal knowledge. Statutes of limitations may limit your ability to file a claim if you don’t act quickly. Most importantly, talking to the insurance company before you’ve talked with an attorney can harm or even destroy your case.
Often, when you’ve been in a car accident, an insurance company will contact you and offer to work with you directly to settle your claim. The insurance company may make it sound like this is to your advantage—like it will help you to settle your case more quickly, and you’ll save money on attorney’s fees.
In fact, the insurance company may try to get you to make statements that will damage your case so that they don’t have to pay you at all. The insurance company may claim that they want to work out a settlement with you in order to draw you into a conversation they can later use against you. Even when they do offer a quick settlement, it’s because they want to get a commitment from you quickly, before you learn your rights. Once you’ve entered into an agreement you will be barred from seeking additional compensation if you later find out that your case was worth more than they paid—even if your injuries were more extensive or required more medical care than you expected. Don’t jeopardize your case! Talk to a car accident attorney before you talk to the insurance company.
An experienced car accident attorney in our network can help you protect your rights and get fair compensation for your injuries and losses.
When you schedule a free consultation with one of the car accident attorneys in our network, you’ll learn about the losses you may be able to recover for, including:
Members of your family may, in some cases, be entitled to recover for some of their losses based on your injury, and in certain cases you may even be entitled to punitive damages.
Although we refer to these unexpected events as car “accidents,” the truth is that there’s virtually always someone at fault. Car accidents are commonly caused by:
Car accident litigation can be complex and time consuming, but an experienced car accident attorney will be able to gather the evidence necessary to argue your case. Where insurance companies are involved—and they usually are—many car accident cases are settled without a trial. Once your attorney has gathered sufficient information to prove that you were injured, that the other party was at fault, and that you sustained damages, the insurance company will often realize that a trial would only result in unnecessary expense. At that point, your lawyer can negotiate to make sure you receive a settlement that fairly compensates you.
If an acceptable settlement isn’t offered, your case may go to trial. At the trial, your attorney will present evidence to prove that you were injured and that the other party was at fault, and to demonstrate the damages you should be compensated for.
If the other party doesn’t have insurance, and doesn’t have enough income or assets to satisfy your judgment, you may be able to recover from your state’s uninsured or underinsured motorist fund. This can be a complicated process, but an experienced car accident lawyer will know how to negotiate it.
Car accident cases can be difficult to navigate, and you want to make sure that you understand all of your rights and options before you make a commitment that may not be in your best interests. If you’ve been injured and someone else is at fault, you owe it to yourself and your family to find out more about your rights and options before you take any kind of action.
If you or someone you love has suffered injuries from an accident or personal injury, you may be entitled to compensation. Our legal team has helped thousands of personal injury and accident victims.
