The personal injury attorneys from Kuzyk Law understand the laws related to car accident claims and how to negotiate with the insurance company. After a car accident, personal injury attorneys can help you:
Conduct a thorough investigation of the accident
If there is doubt about who was to blame for a car accident, a personal injury attorney can work to uncover the liable parties. These attorneys have extensive experience investigating car accidents and often work with recreation teams and forensic specialists to figure out the full details of what happened.
Work with the police
If the police are investigating your accident want to speak with you or get information from you, your attorney will serve as the go-between.
Work with the insurance agency
Navigating your insurance policy or dealing with the insurance agency of the party responsible for the car accidents and your injuries, can be a difficult and time-consuming process that will quickly leave you frustrated. An attorney will make sure you hear from the company in a timely manner, and they don’t try to delay dealing with your claim or if they will not negotiate with you about the claim amount. If the liable party’s insurance company declines your claim, your attorney will also help to dispute that denial and achieve a more satisfactory resolution.
Recover wages from lost work due to injuries
Even a small accident can leave you with injuries that keep you from working for a few days, weeks, months, and sometimes even years. If this is your experience, your personal injury attorney will help to make sure you receive compensation so that you can continue to protect and support yourself and your family.
Negotiate your medical bills
After a car accident, there may be a lot of bills from the treatment and ongoing care you require. With that will come a lot of bills, many of which can be expensive. A personal injury attorney can help you negotiate the cost of those bills and will include them in your claim. This way you can concentrate on recovering.
If you have been in a car accident, reach out to a personal injury to learn more about your rights and what your next steps should be. These attorneys typically work on a contingency basis, meaning you owe them nothing unless they win or settle your case.
