Your auto accident left you with significant injuries, including long-term pain and suffering. Working with an attorney with knowledge of auto accident cases can the most effective way to determine the range of damages you may be entitled to recover. These may include:
In auto accident cases, insurance companies typically play a large role in determining when and how much victims get paid. Unfortunately, those companies may try to avoid paying you the full amount you deserve. There are two key tactics insurers often use to minimize their exposure.
First, they often try to limit the liability of their clients by arguing that you bear more responsibility for your accident than you really do, or that someone else other than their insured bears responsibility for the accident, as in the case of a drunk driver who was over-served at a bar or restaurant.
Second, insurance companies may also try to limit their financial responsibility by offering a low settlement that does not adequately reflect the damages that you ought to receive. Working with your attorney can help establish the appropriate amount of damages to demand from insurance companies and other parties responsible.
