Was the Other Driver Negligent?
Many car accidents happen because of the negligence of the other driver. The person who is at fault for an accident pays for the damages of that accident. However, proving negligence and the value of your claim is easier said than done.
The other driver may not accept responsibility for what happened to you, and their insurer may try to back up their claims so they won’t have to pay you as much, or at all. However, there is a way you can hold them both accountable and get the money you deserve.
That’s by hiring a car accident lawyer to help you. If you live in Greenwood, Indiana, go with the team that has been helping people for over 100 years get paid for their injuries. Go with Vaughan & Vaughan as your representative.
Getting Medical Help After Your Accident
If you’ve just been in an accident and you haven’t seen a doctor yet, do that first. It is in your best interests for two reasons. First, you can get your injuries treated before they become worse. If you wait, you may need more treatment or may injure yourself permanently.
Second, it creates a medical record of your injuries that we can use to prove you were hurt in your car accident. We can use the data in your record to gauge the true value of your claim and fight for the full value, not what the insurance company thinks your case is worth. Should we have to go to court, your doctor may also serve as an expert witness about when you showed up, the severity of your injuries, and your prognosis of recovery.
Third, it removes a potent tool of the insurance companies to deny you money. The longer you wait between your accident and getting examined, the more likely they’ll try to argue that something else hurt you and not the other driver.
Must I Hire a Greenwood Car Accident Lawyer?
If you need to speak with an insurer to get compensation after a car accident, then it is always in your best interest to speak with a car accident lawyer for advice. It is not required, but if you don’t have one, then you give insurers all the power to determine how much your case is worth.
Insurance companies are in the business of paying people as little as possible. That’s how they keep profits up. They may offer you a settlement much less than you need, or try to deny your claim completely. Even if the adjuster sounds sympathetic on the phone, be very careful about speaking with them.
Better yet, hire Vaughan & Vaughan and we’ll talk with the insurer for you. We can review what happened, answer your legal questions, explain your options, and fight against insurance tactics so you get the most you can from your case. We’ve been helping victims in Indiana for over 100 years, so we have experience that few other lawyers in the state can match.
What’s My Potential Compensation?
There is no such thing as an average car settlement amount. Every case has a unique set of circumstances. Insurers will try to prey upon your ignorance by offering what they say is a fair or average settlement for cases like yours. It’s not true, and you should let our lawyers call them out.
You can get compensation for more damages than you think. You can get economic damages like lost wages, car repair, medical bills, and lost wages. Then there are non-economic damages like pain and suffering, disability, loss of enjoyment of life, and others.
The fact is that you cannot know how much your case is truly worth until you’ve had an experienced person go over the evidence and add it up. Hire one by calling Vaughan & Vaughan. We’ll give your case the attention it deserves so you can get the most possible.
What Should I Do After a Car Accident?
There are four people you need to contact after a car accident to get your case started. The first is the police to give an accident report. The second is a doctor to diagnose your injuries. Next, call your insurer so they don’t deny your benefits if the other driver makes a claim. Finally, contact a Greenwood car accident lawyer.
With the information from the crash report and your medical records, our team can make a solid determination about whether you have a case and how we can help you. However, if an insurer is trying to contact you about what happened and you don’t have a lawyer, contact one right away.
