Car Accidents

Car accidents happen all the time, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you can adequately handle one on your own. Sure, there are minor fender benders that can be easily resolved with a few simple phone calls and a trip to the repair shop, but accidents involving bodily harm should be taken much more seriously. An experienced car accident attorney can handle the claims process while you heal and strive to ensure you receive adequate compensation. Below, I will explain each of these steps in more detail. 

Submitting a Claim 

Though you have likely submitted insurance claims yourself in the past, the process of submitting a claim that warrants the insurance company to pay a settlement is much different. While they might make you an offer, it will likely be less than you truly deserve, and there’s always a chance that they will deny your claim entirely. Insurance companies are businesses, and their end goal is to make money. They are known to cut corners when they can get away with it, but a knowledgeable attorney can advocate for a fair claim on your behalf.

What Constitutes a Fair Claim?

When evaluating the amount of damages in your case, it’s important to examine both the mental and the physical. Although it may be easy to calculate the cost of hospital bills and wages lost from work, it can be harder to know how long you might need rehabilitative care, such as chiropractic treatment and physical therapy, and thus, what the total expense may be. Additionally, it is nearly impossible to put a dollar amount on your pain and suffering unless you are a professionally trained in the nature of such calculations.

Making an Agreement 

Insurance companies sometimes say they have policy limits and that settlements aren’t negotiable, but I know better. I have been extensively trained in negotiation tactics and have years of experience coordinating favorable settlements. You won’t catch me backing down from a negotiation prematurely. And if the insurance company simply won’t settle on a reasonable figure, I will aggressively advocate for you in trial.
