Car accidents are often the scene of chaos and confusion. It’s understandable. This is one of those unforeseen and completely unplanned for events in life that leave both parties stunned and at odds about how to proceed. In general, there is a series of step everyone should take after a car accident. These steps give you the best chance of abiding by the law, capturing the accident the exact way it happened, and giving yourself the option of filing a lawsuit later on after things have calmed down and all other options have failed.
An personal injury law firm exists to make sure that clients are treated fairly after a car accident. A lawsuit is always about fairness. When someone causes unimaginable havoc and pain in your life, as typically happens when a driver crashes into you on the road, sometimes only a lawyer can make sense of the confusion and bring about a fair solution to the matter.
Is it always necessary to file a lawsuit?
personal injury lawyers do everything they can to negotiate with insurance companies and at-fault drivers to get them to do the right thing and pay you a fair amount of compensation. No one who’s already been through a car accident wants to walk into a courtroom and pursue a lawsuit. Unfortunately, because so much of the time an insurance company or personal party won’t want to do the right thing and pay out as much as you are owed in your case, a lawsuit may be the only way to remedy the situation.
It’s shocking how devastating a car accident can be to someone’s finances and health. In some cases, the injuries sustained in a car accident will last a lifetime, such as tragic spinal cord injuries we often see. These debilitating injuries rob someone of the joy of working and earning money, enjoying life without excess physical pain, and some of the most simple joys in life, such as walking from one place to another. Far too often, insurance companies and personal parties won’t own up to their part in the fiasco and so it’s necessary to file a lawsuit in order to recover damages. When you need a lawyer that is tough on offending drivers and insurance companies, there’s no better place to turn than our offices. With years of combined experience and a team dedicated to getting justice for our clients, we pursue every car accident case as if it were our own family who was injured.
Calling our offices
Because insurance companies and negligent drivers rarely take responsibility for the damages they cause in someone’s life, it’s usually necessary to file a lawsuit to recover maximum compensation. Granted, there are those rare instances where a personal injury firm can negotiate with insurance companies and negligent drivers and recover damages without a lawsuit, but when that fails, it’s time to get tough and contact us.
There is a statute of limitations on filing a lawsuit after a personal injury case – usually 3 years – so don’t wait too long before contacting a lawyer. That length of time may sound like a long time to you, but it’s actually a very short period of time considering the massive amount of research, analysis, and strategy that goes into your typical car accident case. The longer we have to negotiate and aggressively pursue your case, the better the chances that you will recover the damages you seek.
When you call us, we’ll set up a free consultation for you and go over the facts of your case together. Our team is at ease speaking and communicating with clients in the most respectful and compassionate way possible. We realize that your car accident has taken a lot from you.
