What should I do if I’m in an auto accident?

Any information you provide to your insurance company could be detrimental to your accident claim. To protect your interests, our personal injury lawyer recommends that you take the following steps after being involved in an accident:

  • Report the accident: Call the police and document the facts by filing an accident report, which helps determine who was responsible.
  • Contact a lawyer: Do not give statements to an insurance company or sign any documents without first getting legal advice.
  • Get medical attention: See a medical professional immediately after the accident to determine the impact of your injuries.
  • Keep records: Take photos of the accident scene and gather information from the at-fault driver and any witnesses.

What compensation can I receive for my car accident injuries?

If you can prove the other driver’s liability, you may receive compensation for economic damages caused by your personal injury, including medical bills, lost wages and the ability to earn future wages. If you have a serious injury, such as a disfigurement or dismemberment, you can receive compensation for pain, suffering and the loss of enjoyment of life.

What percentage of auto accident lawsuits settle out of court?

Insurance companies want to settle your case as quickly as possible because settlements are lower than jury awards. According to The New York Times, 80 to 92 percent of all cases settle out of court. Legal experts estimate that more than 90 percent of auto accident injury cases settle without going to trial.

To start the settlement process, our attorney sends a demand package to your insurance company, which contains a monetary demand. We may ask for the entire policy limits of the at-fault driver, but the amount depends on the facts of the accident and the extent of your injuries. Normally, the insurance company takes 30 to 60 days to review the demand. During the process, we explain the strengths and weaknesses of your case to you and make recommendations about accepting a settlement.

You make the final decision to accept a settlement. Settling has distinct advantages, including:

  • Attorney fees and costs are much lower
  • Litigation stress is avoided
  • Payment is obtained quickly
  • Amount is in your control, not a jury’s
