While we can’t possibly answer all of your questions about a personal injury case here, we do our best to answer the most frequently asked questions. With that said, we would encourage you to call our office as soon as possible if you think that you might have a personal injury claim.
Car accidents can take an emotional and a physical toll on individuals involved. Give yourself time to seek medical care, and think about things before reaching for the phone.
Each insurance company will ask different questions regarding the accident. They may ask who you think is at fault, what your injuries are, and what the circumstances were surrounding the accident. It is important that you provide an accurate account of what took place, stick to who, what, when, and where. Our recommendation is that you take a few minutes and write your thoughts out. Details like how fast were you going? What direction were you traveling? What lane were you in? What was the weather like? Who was in the car with you? Where were you coming from? Where were you going? If an insurer asks a question that you don’t immediately know the answer to, don’t be afraid to tell them that you will have to get back to them on that question!
The insurance company’s ultimate goal is to keep the claim to a minimum. They want to assess their liabilities as soon as possible and get all parties to settle for the least amount possible. After all, they are a for profit business! We recommend that you contact our office as soon as possible after an accident so that we can handle these details for you. Our experienced car accident attorney will walk you through the entire process to make sure you get the compensation you deserve!
