What Should You Do After a Car Accident?
Immediately after a car, seek medical treatment. Having medical records
and a full body examination can actually help to maximize the value of
your claim. Many injuries are also not immediately visible, so getting
regular checkups to monitor the progress of your injuries is also crucial
for your health and your claim.
After a car accident, you should also:
- Keep clear documentation of your injuries, including medical records, photographs,
and other evidence of your injuries
- Preserve any physical evidence, such as parts of damaged car
- Collect contact information from witnesses who may be at the scene of the accident.
- Call an attorney to help you file a claim.
What Factors Affect My Recovery Value?
In any car accident claim, the extent of actual damages will set the initial
recovery value. This means fixes or medical attention with values that
can be written down in dollars and cents. The more damage and harm done
to you and your vehicle, the greater your recovery value. The total potential
of your claim can also increase due to punitive damages – monetary
penalty often associated with criminal driving behavior, such as DUI –
and nominal damages – financial rewards granted in response to your
own emotional trauma experienced. The actual compensation you receive
will depend on the severity of your accident.
Liability also plays a major role in how much you can hope to be compensated.
The less liable you are for your car accident, the more you should be
able to collect from insurance companies or the other driver. Determining
liability is a multistep process that involves any insurance providers
individually investigating the details of the collision to try to pinpoint
who was doing what at the time of the crash. This can be a challenge in
apparently simple cases, such as
rear-end accidents, as well as in complex,
A driver’s liability for a car accident may increase if they were
doing any of the following:
My Insurance is Denying My Car Accident Claim
In many car accidents, your greatest opposition is not the person who struck
you but actually your own car insurance provider. In order to keep their
own profits high, an insurance adjuster may attempt to give you a small
New York car insurance laws, an amount which may be less than you could recover with the help of an
accident lawyer.. You should not accept any initial settlement offer from
any insurance company without first allowing a car accident attorney to
review your claim. It could be possible that there are damages you have
not considered or calculated, and which require a much larger settlement
amount to cover.
If you suspect that your insurance provider is using insurance bad faith
tactics, be sure to also let your lawyer know, as this can also be addressed
in a personal injury lawsuit. Other insurance problems you may need to
address include recovering compensation from a driver who is
underinsured or uninsured. Because auto insurance in New York follows a
no fault policy, you will always be eligible to recover compensation for an accident.
The question we can help you answer is whether the amount offered is sufficient
for your needs.
