When you’ve been injured, it can be a difficult ordeal to go through. The initial moment of getting injured can be frightening and scary enough on its own. But getting injured as a result of a car accident can not only be physically jarring, but mentally and emotionally jarring too. When the event happens, you have to deal with your injuries first and all the other damages and details second. But once the initial shock has passed, you may realize that you have other things to deal with.
After an accident, your vehicle may be heavily or totally wrecked. That’s one of the most common losses from an accident; loss of property. Usually, the insurance company will determine that your car is a loss or offer to pay for repairs. You will need to find out whether the insurance company will pay for the repairs. If you’re at fault, you need to get reimbursement through your personal property, but if you’re not at fault, the payment will be sought after through the other insurer. If you were in a hit and run or not at fault, you may be able to get compensation through your own car insurance company.
When processing a claim for payment, insurance companies often like to keep the initial claim offer small. The amount you are offered may not be enough to cover the cost of repairing– or even having to totally find a new replacement for– your car. You get it. Why should they offer you a fair amount? There’s no incentive for the insurance companies to go above and beyond when it comes to offering payment. They want to save money. The moment you get an offer that will not even begin to cover your damages should be the moment when you decide to hire a personal injury attorney.
So many people let themselves accept less than they truly deserve. The motivations are endless; they need the money now, they’ve never hired a lawyer before, they don’t feel they are worth more. Even when people are seriously injured, they don’t want to be a bother. Well, this is one time to stand up and say they matter. They’re not the one that was negligent. So many people let it go, but if they’re not at fault or live in a no-fault state, they may need to seek payment from various sources.
