How To Make A Car Accident Claim

As our state is a no-fault car insurance state, it is not uncommon for individuals who have sustained injuries in a car accident to simply go ahead and try to file a claim directly with their own insurance company. There is nothing wrong with seeking compensation from your insurance company following an accident, however it is not something we advise you do without first engaging legal representation.

Insurance companies are usually quick to offer settlements to their policyholders. In many cases these settlements will not sufficiently cover both current and future medical expenses, much less pain and suffering or any other accident-related costs. This could leave you having to pay out of pocket for expenses incurred as a result of an accident caused by a negligent or reckless driver. Do not let your haste end up depriving you of damages which should be covered under the terms of your policy and do not be afraid to ask for help. Our lawyers are just a phone call away.
