Following a crash, it is important to contact an experience car accident lawyer. By hiring one of our attorneys, you have someone to independently investigate what happened. We will gather and review the evidence to determine what happened and who was immediately responsibility. This includes reviewing the police report, taking down your statement of the accident, examining videos and photos of the aftermath of the crash, obtaining and reviewing video footage of the accident, and taking eye witness’s statements.
Once your lawyer finds evidence of who was directly at fault for the crash, our next step it to determine liability. This is not always the same person as who caused the crash. Car accident liability may fall on the at-fault driver’s shoulders, the owner of the vehicle, or an employer. If the driver was not the owner of the vehicle, our attorneys will locate the owner and determine whether they have auto insurance. You may need to work with the vehicle owner’s insurance company to pursue compensation. Additionally, if the at-fault driver was working at the time, their employer is liable. You may file a claim against the business in pursuit of compensation.Seeking Compensation After a Car Accident
When you are hurt in a car accident that was another person’s fault, then you usually have the right to pursue compensation for your:
- Medical costs
- Lost wages
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional distress and mental anguish
- Loss of normal life
The more serious or the more painful your injuries, typically, the greater the value of your claim. Additionally, the more egregious the other driver’s actions, the more compensation you may be able to pursue. You should speak with one of our auto accident attorneys in Fontainebleau about the potential value of your car accident claim.
In order to obtain compensation for your car accident injuries, you will need to file an insurance claim. In most situations, you will inform your insurer of the accident and they will contact the at-fault driver’s insurance company. However, in some cases, particularly if you do not have your own auto insurance, then you will directly make a third-party claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance. If you must deal with their insurer, you should have one of our experienced personal injury lawyers represent you. We are highly experienced in car accident insurance claims, and we are not intimidated by major insurers.
To pursue full and fair compensation, we may also need to file a personal injury lawsuit. This shows insurers we mean business. We can also utilize discovery to gather and review more evidence. If an insurer refuses to settle, or the at-fault party is under- or uninsured, then we may be able to obtain a judgement against the at-fault driver that they will be personally responsible for fulfilling.Call Our Fontainebleau Auto Accident Lawyers Today
When you or a relative have been hurt in a car accident, you should not rely on your or the other driver’s insurer to make it right. Insurance companies are big businesses that want to preserve their bottom line. They will want to deny your claim or push you to accept a low settlement offer right away. By hiring Gerson & Schwartz P.A., you avoid having your claim wrongly denied and you have someone who will negotiate an appropriate settlement for you.
