A car accident goes hand-in-hand with loads of questions: Whose fault was it? Who will pay for the damage to my car? What about medical bills, pain, and suffering? I lost precious workdays – can I be reimbursed?
Usually, the liability of a car accident can be clearly established. The at-fault driver has to pay damages to the injured party.
It is a fight against an insurance company
Most people are insured against automobile accidents, so in effect, after a car accident, you enter the perplexing world of insurance claims and settlements.
It is not always easy to navigate this on your own, especially when considerable injuries are involved. You will need an experienced injury attorney by your side.
The personal injury attorneys at KJT Law are exceptionally knowledgeable about procedures, rules, and laws that may be applicable in your case. For instance, there is a time window during which a lawsuit can be filed against the at-fault party. Should you miss it, you are forever prohibited from filing against that person.
Your attorney will know how to launch a counterattack to any possible defense that the other side may raise. Insurance companies have lots of resources and experience. It is imperative to have a personal injury lawyer on your side that can level the playing field and fight for you.
Causes of auto accidents
The causes of car accidents can be numerous: from a mundane, ordinary mishap such as just not thinking quickly enough to reckless- or drunk driving, text messaging and cell phone use while driving and more.
The accident happened – what should I do?
If you are not seriously hurt, you can try to obtain information and eye-witness statements from bystanders. At the very least, you should get their contact information, driver’s license, and insurance information so that your lawyer will be able to contact them at a later stage.
Take photos of the accident scene if possible. The police should be contacted. Even if you feel you are ok, seek medical care to make sure. Some injuries are not obvious immediately.
