How Can Our Car Accident Lawyer Help You?
According to the National Highway Safety Administration, driving is getting more dangerous than ever before, and our attorneys can help you receive full benefits from the insurance company and determine whether you can file a claim for damages against the party at fault in your auto accident. If you or a loved one has suffered serious injuries, we may be able to help you file a claim for compensation beyond what has been provided through your insurance claim.
The victim of the automobile crash must have died or sustained a significant injury to be eligible for a personal injury lawsuit. These injuries may include the following:
- Damage to the brain
- Significant injury to the head
- Disfigurement or permanent scarring
- Bone fractures
After you have utilized the benefits from your personal injury protection (PIP) and decide you want to take legal recourse against the driver who was at fault in your car accident, our lawyers can begin preparing your lawsuit by:
- Obtaining police reports and reports from the scene
- Gathering statements from witnesses
- Taking photographs of the scene, injuries, and damages
- Looking into the other motorists driving history
- Trying to reconstruct the scene of the accident
- Reviewing all medical records
- Getting consults from experts
- Contacting insurance companies on your behalf
Most of the time, the party who was negligent or the insurance company will try and categorize your injury as temporary instead of permanent. Our lawyers will work on collecting evidence that makes the defendants claim invalid.
Can You Seek Additional Damages For Your Claim?
If you want to seek additional damages from your accident, your lawyer will approach the insurance company of the negligent driver to try and recover compensation to cover the remaining costs that you are facing. Your claim will be sent to the insurance company, and you will wait for approval based on their findings from their investigation.
The success and strength of your lawsuit will be based on the ability of your lawyer to collect, analyze, and present evidence from your accident. This will not be an easy task because the opposing insurance company will want the payout to be as minimal as possible.
You will want to provide your lawyer will as much information that you can to strengthen your lawsuit. If your lawyer and the insurance company cannot come to an agreement, your case may go to trial.
Auto Accidents Involving Uninsured and Underinsured Motorists
After exhausting your available PIP coverage, if the other party has no other insurance or their coverage is insufficient and cannot pay for costs related to your injury, you still have options.
If the other party were underinsured, your insurance would cover the difference between your losses and the amount you received from the negligent party’s insurance company if you have this type of coverage on your plan. If you do not have this insurance coverage, you should contact our lawyer’s to obtain compensation for the injuries that you have as a result of your crash. Our lawyer may be able to seek damages from the following:
- Other party’s homeowners’ insurance
- Your insurance carrier
- Your health insurance provider
Trying to collect compensation from uninsured motorist coverage can become quickly complicated. This is when you should get assistance from an experienced attorney. Your insurance company can limit your payout, based on their investigation of the accident and how much they believe your claim is worth, especially if you don’t have a lawyer on your side.
If you receive an amount from your insurance company that you think does not adequately cover your costs, our lawyer may be able to file a lawsuit against your insurance company to try and recover additional compensation.
Injuries That May Have Resulted From Your Car Accident
Each accident is different, and the extent of injuries that you have suffered will be different than other cases your attorney may have handled. Most of the time, the costs for treating your injuries sustained will not be covered by Personal Injury Protection insurance, and it will require additional litigation or negotiations from your attorney. The following are some injuries that our lawyers can attempt to collect compensation for:
- Burns and scars
- Loss of limbs
- Spinal cord injuries
- Head injuries
- Joint, muscle, back, neck, and bone injuries
- Knee damage
