The Insurance Company Is Not Your Friend
Within four days of your accident, it’s likely you’ll be contacted by the insurance adjuster for the person responsible. At first, they’ll seem very compassionate and come off like a friend. Then they’ll make you a low-ball offer that doesn’t come close to the harm you’ve suffered. If you refuse, they might try bullying or threatening you that if you don’t sign off, you’ll get nothing.
Remember, they’re not your friends. Their job, quite simply, is to get away with paying you as little as possible, and if you sign, you may forfeit your rights to further compensation. Never sign anything without talking to an attorney. You are always within your rights to simply direct them to your injury lawyer.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is There a Statute of Limitations?
Every state has a statute of limitations for injury claims. In Alabama, the time limit to file a lawsuit for a personal injury case is two years. The clock starts ticking on the date of the accident, unless it’s a wrongful death case, in which case it’s from the date of death. However, this rule can be complicated. It’s important to consult a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after your accident to ensure that you don’t miss your window of opportunity to seek compensation.
Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Quite simply, an Montgomery personal injury attorney is your best chance to secure maximum compensation for your injuries. The defendant will likely have attorneys who work for their insurance company, so it’s best for you to have qualified representation on your side to fight back.
What Should I Tell the Insurance Company?
Talking to the insurance company is a given when you’ve been hurt in a case like this. But when you answer their questions, be direct, straightforward, and honest. Never apologize for anything, never sign anything, and never editorialize. Stick to the exact facts of the case, and remember, you’re entitled to have legal representation present, or to direct them to your injury attorney.
What Does Negligence Mean?
Negligence in a legal sense means proving that someone else was at fault for what happened to you. It means demonstrating they had a duty of care toward you that they violated, that this failure led to the accident, and that the accident caused your injuries. It can, however, be deceptively tricky to prove, which is another reason why having an experienced Montgomery personal injury lawyer is important.
Will I Need to Go to Court?
The most direct answer to this question is, “maybe.” For the most part, these kinds of cases don’t end up in court because both sides can usually come to an agreement before that happens. It’s actually in everyone’s best interest not to go to court. Sometimes, however, you hit a wall and a court case is necessary. When this happens you can be sure that the Thumbs Up Guys at our law offices will fight tooth and nail to defend your right to compensation.
What Compensation Can I Get?
There’s a wide range of compensatory damages you can collect. These include medical bills, lost wages, lost potential earnings in the future, damage to quality of life, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, emotional trauma, loss of consortium, loss of comfort, and sometimes in the very worst cases, punitive damages. The specific damages for your case will depend on the extent of your injuries. Call us or fill out our online form for a free case evaluation.
