How You Can Prepare for an Accident Claim
For decades at Darrell Castle and Associates, we’ve helped people get the compensation they need after a car accident. But we often meet clients with a car accident case who don’t know much about the process or what to expect.
That makes sense. Most of us aren’t prepared for a car accident in the first place, let alone know how to file a claim against someone else who was responsible.
So what can you expect from your car accident case, and what should you be aware of before you ever file?
Basics of Car Accident Cases
In general, drivers don’t know how car accident lawsuits work until they have to deal with one themselves. But understanding the basics can really help you as you get started.
For example, you don’t want to apologize or admit fault after an accident. Sometimes people will do this even if they weren’t at fault, just because the situation is stressful and they feel uncomfortable talking to the other driver. But this can hurt you down the road when you file your claim.
In addition, it helps to know in advance this isn’t an antagonistic case against the other driver. You’re making a claim against their insurance company when they refuse to pay. You’re actually asking for money you’re already owed and deserve from a massive corporation with billions in revenue. So with that in mind, don’t speak with the other driver’s insurance company. Always work through your lawyer.
And to that end, you never want to go this alone. Always work with an attorney on your car accident case. When going up against these big companies, it will be you against a massive legal team. You need help from an experienced, qualified lawyer who only gets paid if they win your case.
These are just some of the basics to consider as you enter a car accident claim. But there’s a lot more to the process you should know about, and that’s why we’ve written a free report to help.
