Within the blink of an eye, your life can forever. You go from thinking, “Am I going to get there on time?” to “Is my car going to be okay?” to “Am I okay?” in a single second. The sad fact is, that car accident occur all too often. Driver’s carry liability insurance to protect them on the road but this does not always cover the full extent of the physical injuries victims may suffer. Many car accidents could have been avoided and those fall under acts of negligence on the part of one driver. Although the negligent driver did not act maliciously, they were behind the wheel and may have acted in an irresponsible manner. This could be from fatigue, intoxication, speeding, using their phones, or making an unsafe lane change. The phrase, “they came out of nowhere” is one police and insurance companies hear all too often.
When you are the victim of a car accident where another driver is negligent, then you deserve compensation to cover the costs of your medical bills and the time you lost from work. You may be suffering from loss of limbs or brain damage that can cause you to be unable to work for the rest of your life. Insurance companies are slow to pay the full compensation and your best step to seeking the full compensation you are entitled to under the law usually requires hiring a skilled personal injury attorney.
Even if you feel the case is open and shut, you should not provide a statement to the other driver’s insurance without first consulting an attorney. Anything you say can be used to deny or reduce your claim. Working with an attorney who specializes in personal injury claims can offer you a confidential ear who can assess the claim and speak on your behalf. Many insurance companies will delay contacting or paying victims. However, they fear litigation and many times a letter from an attorney on professional letterhead is all that is needed for the insurers to take the right course of action and make full restitution.
