If a person has been injured in a car accident or by the negligence or wrong-doing of a third party, collecting financial compensation from insurance companies can be a difficult process. Often, an attorney can get these matters settled without any litigation. An attorney will evaluate your case to determine the highest legal value based on the injuries suffered, damages allowed by law and will negotiate in your best interests.
When you are injured, it is helpful to keep a journal to outline your injuries and subsequent medical treatment. Documentation such as photographs of the car or injuries is evidence used to get the best value of your cliam. Gathering facts and investigating all avenues is best done as close to the time of the accident as possible. An early investigation helps to prepare the case from the ground up.
We do not get paid unless you receive a settlement. These matters are time sensitive. If your claim is not filed timely, it could be forever barred. Contacting an attorney as soon after an accident as is possible can be key to a successful resolution to a personal injury case.
