May 15, 2023

The aftermath of a car accident can be devastating and extremely stressful. The accident victim has to deal with physical and emotional injuries, financial hardships, damage to their vehicle  and lost time lost from work. These are complicated issues and the accident victim should not deal with them alone.

If you or someone you care about has been injured in a car accident, you should seek the help of an attorney immediately. An experienced lawyer can provide assistance with the following:

  • Investigate the Accident: An attorney will  investigate the accident to determine all the respective parties that may be at fault. The attorney will secure the police report, interview witnesses, inspect the scene, review the medical reports, examine photographs of your injuries, damage to your vehicle and the scene of the accident. An experienced attorney will also retain experts (engineers, biomechanical experts) as necessary.
  • File your Personal Injury Protection “PIP” and/or No-Fault “NF” Claim: An attorney and his staff will promptly file the necessary paperwork to establish your PIP and/or NF claim. In most jurisdictions PIP and NF are the first source from which your accident related medical bills must be paid.  Most states have short deadlines by which the claim must be filed to ensure that your bills are paid.
  • Negotiate with the Other Driver’s Insurer: An attorney will communicate and negotiate with the other driver’s insurer on your behalf. In addition to protecting your rights, an attorney will represent your interests in the negotiation process. They will advise you on the legal implications of any settlement offer and will work hard to protect your rights during the entire process. Many cases are successfully brought to a conclusion at Mediation and Arbitration by an experienced attorney.
  • Gather Evidence and File a Lawsuit: If the attorney is unable to settle the matter in claims a lawsuit against the responsible driver and vehicle owner must be timely filed. All states have specific deadlines (Statute of Limitations) by which the lawsuit must be filed. A missed deadline will result in the case being dismissed. An experienced car accident attorney will timely file your lawsuit in accordance with the applicable Statute of Limitations and present all of your evidence in an admissible format. If all other avenues to settlement fail, your attorney will take your case to trial before a Judge and Jury.
  • Understand the value of your case: A seasoned accident attorney will have the background and experience to properly evaluate how much your case is worth and the most successful path to help you get there!
