Frequently Asked Questions
Will I receive more compensation for my case if I am represented by a lawyer?
In almost every case we can get far more compensation for you than you would be able to get on your own due to the reason that insurance companies give very low offers to individuals because they know they can force a certain percent of individuals to settle their claims for small amounts. Insurance companies only pay top dollar if a legal case is built against them, and by doing so we can usually put a lot more money in your pocket. We can also take away the time and stress you would have to go through to work on the case yourself.
How much compensation can I receive for my injuries?
Each case is unique and the severity of the injuries plays a large role in the amount you can collect. We will make claims for every damage you suffer including past and future medical expenses, past and future physical pain and suffering, past and future physical impairment, past and future mental anguish, past and future loss of earning capacity, and any other damage you suffer.
If I am represented by a lawyer, will I have to go to court?
In all likelihood you will not go to court. We can settle about 99% of all cases without our clients ever having to go to court. After we develop and build your case the right way, insurance companies can usually be forced to pay the correct amount.
How do I pay for medical care?
If you have a medical insurance policy, PIP, Med Pay, workers compensation, etc., we can use these policies. If you do not have any of these policies, we can issue a letter of protection to the doctors so you can be treated without any upfront money paid by you, and the doctors get paid when the case settles.
How much will I be paid for the damage to my vehicle?
If your car can be repaired, the insurance company of the person who caused the wreck has the obligation to pay for all of the repairs of your vehicle. If your car is a total loss (cannot be economically repaired), the insurance company has the obligation to pay you the fair market value of your vehicle.
Can I get a rental car while my car is being fixed?
Yes, the insurance company of the person who caused the wreck must put you in a rental car while your car is being repaired.
Can I decide where to get my car repaired?
Yes, you have the right to decide where your car is fixed.
How many car wreck cases have you handled?
We have done thousands of car wreck cases, and we know the ins and outs of how a claim should be handled.
The insurance company asked me to give them a statement, should I do it?
Do not give the insurance company a verbal or a written statement. The only reason they want a statement from you is to see if you will say something they can use against you to deny your claim. They are very good at giving you leading questions and twisting your words to use them against you later. If a statement is ever given, it should be in the presence of your attorney.
How do I get a copy of the police report?
Some police departments have the police report available online and others require that the report be picked up in person. As soon as the report is ready, we will obtain a copy of the report and can send you a copy by email, fax, or mail.
