Car Accident Lawyer
If you have been in a recent car accident, you can request the assistance of a trusted lawyer. The aftermath of a car accident can be a lot to process. You may have suffered a serious injury and may not remember much about the accident. In addition to your injury, you likely have many expenses such as replacement of vehicle parts, property damage, psychological trauma and lost income. Working with a car accident lawyer such as one from Greenspan & Greenspan P.C. can reduce the burden of filing a personal injury accident.
When you are filing a vehicle accident claim there are a number of damages that you can claim. Common damages you can claim include medical expenses, missed wages, reduced income capacity, and property damage. It can be a challenging task to compile all of your damages on your own, but you can hire a lawyer to assist you so that nothing is left out.
It can be difficult to determine liability in a car accident, as there can be multiple parties at fault. When an accident involves multiple at fault parties, an accident case is even more difficult to handle. An example of a case with multiple parties at fault is when a speeding driver hits another driver who is making an illegal turn, and they hit a third vehicle whose driver is not at fault. A lawyer will pursue all the liable parties involved so that you can recover the highest possible compensation.
Accepting a Settlement
The insurance company may give you an offer that you might feel like you need to accept. Before you accept any kind of compensation offer, you should have a lawyer review it to ensure that it is an amount that you are entitled to. You will be able to negotiate an initial offer, but once you accept an agreement, you will not be able to change your mind and ask for a higher settlement amount.
Going to Trial
In the event that a lawyer and the insurance company will not agree on terms for a settlement, a lawyer may decide that they want to go to trial. There are other reasons why a case may go to trial, such as if the insurance company insists that the accident is the driver’s fault. In such cases, your lawyer will decide which strategies to use.
