Complications with Filing an Auto Accident Injury Claim

We also wanted to take a moment to reach out to those of you who may be seeking justice, either for injuries you yourself suffered or for the loss of a loved one in the crash. In addition, as we stated earlier, there may be many benefits to hiring an injury lawyer after a severe accident. Let’s take a minute to discuss possible complications with filing an auto accident injury claim.
The Cost of the Damages
Insurance companies are financial institutions. If you read enough of our injury articles you know we like to explain a lot about insurance firms and how they work behind the scenes. Complications can arise when an insurance company receives a very large injury claim. A risk analyst may weigh the opportunity cost of a large claim against the price of fighting the case in court. That means even if your claim is legit, the insurance firm still might challenge it if they believe they can save money.
Multiple Vehicles are Involved
When two cars collide, usually an adjuster can determine who’s actually at fault. Also, it’s much easier for witnesses to give testimony (if need be) when two vehicles crash because they can also make a judgment call as to who’s in the wrong. Unfortunately, when there are multiple cars involved, and some vehicles get pushed into another, it can be a nightmare trying to figure out who’s the guilty party. In addition, insurance companies may use this to their advantage to try ad wiggle out of paying claims.
Fatal Auto Accidents
If you’ve lost a loved one in a car crash you may wish to explore filing a death claim. Wrongful death lawsuits are probably the most complex type of personal injury cases. Filing a wrongful death lawsuit can bring about many complications. More so, these types of claims usually go to trial and take time to settle. However, if you’ve lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence you may need to do so. Especially if they are leaving behind young children. Their immediate family will need financial support to cope with the loss and move on with their lives.
What Does a Personal Injury Attorney Do?
So, if you’re contemplating retaining the services of a lawyer, you may want some insight into injury law. What does a personal injury attorney do? How much does a lawyer cost? These are all common questions, and rightfully so. Most injury victims are shocked when they find out first hand how insurance really works. While we all want to believe that our insurance policies will be there when something bad happens, the truth is far different. Insurance companies make money by collecting payments, not by forking over millions to injury victims.

How Much is My Car Accident Injury Case Worth?

Medical bills, the cost of living, and how you take care of your kids can cause all sorts of anxiety when you’re hurt and cannot work. So, it makes sense that a victim of a car crash would want to know how much they could win.
