One of the first calls you should make following your call to 911 after an automobile accident is your insurance company. Your insurance agent will need to know the details of the accident so they can be prepared if the other driver claims you were at fault. They may also arrange for your vehicle to be towed to a contracted repair shop. After you deal with your insurance company and tend to your medical needs, it is important to then contact Denison Lawyers who focus on personal injury cases. Your lawyer will work directly with your insurance company and the other driver’s insurance company to be sure that you are adequately compensated for the injuries and property damage you sustained in the accident.
Initial settlement offers are hardly ever enough to fully compensate an accident victim for their losses. This is mainly because there simply isn’t enough time between when you file a claim and when the insurance company computes the amount of the offer. If you were injured in the accident, you are likely to have medical costs beyond your emergency room visit. Some injures do not even become apparent until days after the crash. By accepting a check before you know your true costs, you may find that you don’t have enough money to cover all of your expenses.
Hiring Denison Lawyers does not necessarily mean that you will be involved in a lawsuit with an insurance company. In fact, most cases are settled out of court. Your lawyer will attempt to negotiate with the insurance company’s claims adjuster and will only file a lawsuit if the insurer refuses to give you a fair and reasonable settlement. Expect the negotiation process to last several weeks while the lawyer and claims adjuster debate how much your claim is worth. Trust that your lawyer will fight aggressively to get you the money you need to pay your current and future medical bills, repair your automobile and compensate you for any income you lost as a result of the accident. The attorneys at Neifert Byrne & Ozga P.C. won’t expect any payment from you until you receive a settlement. Contact us for more details.
