The Process of Filing a Car Accident Claim
If you’ve been in a crash, you may assume that you can turn to your own insurance company for compensation for your injuries. While your personal injury protection coverage may indeed pay for a portion of your losses, if you’ve been seriously injured, you’ll likely need to bring a claim against the at-fault party for damages. Our lawyers can help you by:
- Investigating your accident and determining fault and liability;
- Calculating your damages to determine what your claim is worth;
- Gathering evidence to support damages and causation;
- Issuing a demand letter on your behalf;
- Representing you in all interactions with the insurer;
- Negotiating your claim; and
- Serving as a legal resource for any questions you have about the claims process, documents, or the case timeline.
Our lawyers will remain available to answer any questions that you have and provide you with honest answers about your case. While we make it one of our goals to settle all cases as quickly as possible without ever compromising our clients’ best interests, if we are unable to settle a case, we can represent you in litigation. Note that we work on a contingency fee basis, and if you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid.
