Car Wreck Frequently Asked Questions

Unfortunately, pursuing a car wreck claim isn’t very easy. Insurance companies make it very difficult. They can deny your claim or drag out the process.

This answer depends on two factors:

  • Injuries: the more serious your injuries are, the more treatment you’re going to need. If your injuries require surgery, for example, we have to see if the surgery is successful.
  • Insurance companies: Some insurance companies are harder to work with than others; they’re going to do everything they can to deny your claim.

Anytime you’re involved in a personal injury accident, there’s the possibility that your injuries or your pain or symptoms may take some time to develop. You want to be careful, though, that you do not compromise or lower the value of your claim before you know the full extent of your injuries.

Insurance companies may try to contact you within a few days after your accident, and they’ll try to get you to take a quick settlement. If you did that, you may be prevented from coming back if an injury developed later after settling the claim with the insurance company.

Most personal injury attorneys will handle your case for free. Upfront, you don’t have to pay any money. We have a contingency fee contract, which means the attorney doesn’t get paid unless you recover money. Our recovery is contingent upon your recovery. At our law firm, we cover all costs associated with prosecuting and litigation. If you have to go to doctors visits or go to court, or if we need to hire an expert, we cover those costs. If we’re successful, we’re reimbursed those costs. If we’re not successful, then we lost those costs.

Yes. In all cases, insurance companies are out to do one thing: deny or diminish your claim. Hiring a personal injury attorney will help you combat that. A personal injury attorney will be able to properly defend and actually prosecute your case, avoiding tricks and traps laid out by the insurance companies. Studies have shown those who hire personal injury attorneys get four times more money in their pocket after paying their personal injury attorney his or her fee.

Any time you’re faced with a legal situation where you have rights and you’re not sure of those rights, you should get a lawyer. For example, if you’re involved in a slip and fall or a car wreck, and the insurance company is contacting you, what should you do? You may not know all of your legal rights. You may not know how or where to file a lawsuit. It is very important that you understand your legal rights. The best way to do that is through the representation of a lawyer. Ask your friends or family or research online to help you determine the best lawyer that can handle your situation.

Any experienced trial lawyer would be able to give you a general range if you meet with them. It is hard to answer that question with a number unless the lawyer knows about your case. We base the value of your case on our prior experiences. It is important to hire someone with experience so they can give you an accurate number or range.

No, you don’t. That is a trick the insurance companies will oftentimes use on people who don’t know their legal rights. They might extend an offer and give you a time limit to take the offer. In every state, there’s a statute of limitations or a prescription period. This law governs how long you have to file a lawsuit.
