When you’ve just been in a car accident, contacting an attorney probably isn’t your first priority. You’re concerned about your well-being, any loved ones who were in the vehicle, and the condition of your car.
And yet, if you don’t reach out to a car accident lawyer, you’re unlikely to get the care and the compensation that you deserve. You should always speak to an attorney after any accident to understand your legal options.
If you’ve been injured in a car accident that was caused by another person’s actions, follow these steps to protect yourself:
Your insurance company is concerned with two things:
This means that after any accident, their main concern is settling the claim as quickly and as cheaply as possible. You may be denied a perfectly valid claim, or receive compensation that is much less than what you deserve.
An experienced automobile accident attorney will negotiate with the insurance adjuster, handle the details of your claim, and demand appropriate compensation.
Proving your injuries and how much you deserve in compensation can be complicated. Other parties may claim that your injuries were pre-existing, not as severe as you claim, or that you were partially at fault for what happened.
In other cases, you won’t get a fair settlement offer from your insurance company and a personal injury lawsuit may be in your best interest.
Snedaker Law has experience building strong claims on our clients’ behalf. No matter your situation, we’ll work with you to prove the full extent of your injuries and fight against insurance companies to get the full compensation that you deserve.
The average car accident claim in Florida settles for $15,000. Our years of experience and personalized attention have generated settlements of up to $200,000 or more for our clients.
