“How Much Is My Car Accident Case Worth?”
Our team may be able to help you seek additional compensation through a personal injury lawsuit, even if you already pursued compensation through PIP (personal injury protection). You may have the right to seek additional compensation through an injury lawsuit if you sustained a serious, permanent injury in the accident.
In some cases, the insurance company may try to categorize your damages as non-permanent or temporary; our lawyers can help you combat these assumptions so you stand a better chance of filing a successful lawsuit. In the event of a life-altering injury or wrongful death, auto accident victims may be entitled to additional compensation for noneconomic damages such as lost companionship and loss of enjoyment of life.
In short, the value of your case depends on the unique circumstances that surround it. Unfortunately, the insurance company may not help you accurately determine the amount of your loss. Only a qualified car accident lawyer can help you truly determine the magnitude of your damages and how much compensation you should pursue.
We Perform Thorough Car Accident Investigations
Before filing your car accident claim, it is important to talk to an attorney. Without proper legal guidance, you could miss crucial evidence and information that could help your case. if you hire our firm, we can help you discover every piece of evidence related to your case and create a strategy to use it to your advantage. This includes:
- Reviewing records of your medical treatment after the accident
- Investigating police reports and photographs of the accident site
- Conducting witness interviews
- Using traffic camera footage to build your case, if it is available
- Fact-checking the other driver’s history and driving record
- Obtaining a record of the 911 call placed after the accident
Together, we can review this information and build a substantial case in your favor. Using the strategy we create, we can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf and help you pursue maximum compensation for your injury and damages.
In order to collect compensation through PIP, you must seek medical treatment within 14 days of your initial accident. If you don’t, PIP will not pay for your medical bills. In many cases, PIP coverage is capped at $2,500, and covers 60% of your lost wages and 80% of your medical expenses.
If you suffered an emergency medical condition – one that could immediately jeopardize your health – your PIP coverage may pay for more than $2,500 of your expenses. Every case is different though, and yours may be subject to limitations and other factors.
