As a licensed driver, you pay for car insurance so you are protected in the case of personal injury or property damage. Depending on your policy, your car insurance may cover a variety of liability related costs regardless of whether or not you are at fault in the accident.
The problem is many people find that filing a claim is not nearly as straightforward as they would like to believe. If your paperwork is filed incorrectly or not submitted to the correct department, it can delay payment of your claim or even stall the process completely.
This is just one of many reasons why it can be very beneficial to work with a lawyer during the claim process. At Alexander Shunnarah Personal Injury Attorneys, our experienced team will work diligently to ensure your claim is filed correctly the first time. Our team understands that losses are not always instantly apparent and will ensure you receive fair compensation for not only personal injury and property damage but also for lost wages, hospital bills, pain and suffering, and other relevant expenses.
Lawyers who specialize in car accidents maintain a deep knowledge of legal terminology and understand the nuances of these types of cases. With their help, you will have the opportunity to present your claim in a way that is both professional and effective. A fair settlement requires that every detail is accounted for, and your attorney can help you ask the right questions and gather the proper information.
If you have already been involved in an accident, please note it is imperative that you do not accept responsibility for the incident. This decision is best left to law enforcement and the court system. It is important that you make detailed notes of your current losses and document every single detail of the incident. Take pictures of the incident, save all related bills, gather receipts, and keep track of any information that might be relevant to the case at hand.
Do you have questions about this process and your options? Please call our team at Alexander Shunnarah Personal Injury Attorneys at 1-800-229-7989. Our team stands ready to answer your questions and help you navigate this path to the best possible conclusion.
