There are a couple of million car accidents every year in the United States alone. These statistics include minor accidents that cause minor property damage. Most people who go through a minor car accident are hesitant about finding legal representation because the damage is minuscule. They may choose to settle the matter without the insurance company or legal representation.
Should I get a lawyer for a car accident that wasn’t my fault?
A lawyer will know how to navigate a case where the at-fault driver caused considerable damage to the car. A lawyer will take extra measures so that you receive the right settlement to fix your vehicle and cover other necessary bills.
An insurance company is a standard money-making business. You may not get immediate compensation or one sufficient to cover all damages. We will determine the exact value of the impact and pursue a claim that with successful retribution.
Pursue honest claims
It is easy for a story to have manipulation because the at-fault driver does not want to carry the full responsibility for the accident. They could lie to their insurance company and make it seem that you had a part in the accident. A lawyer will negate these claims by sourcing the right information from professionals like accident reconstructors and critical witnesses.
Can I sue if I wasn't injured in a car accident?
Many people make a grand mistake of likening property damage with personal injury claims. A personal injury attorney can take a property damage case in conjunction with the personal injury case. They, however, cannot pursue a property damage claim. Filing a lawsuit without injuries will help resolve the following property damage issues:
The dispute revolves around the amount of the loss because insurance firms do not argue about the rightfulness of the claim. Insurance firms can only give you the right compensation when you have robust legal backing.
The time between the accident’s occurrence and the settlement could drag out for unnecessarily long periods when you do not have a lawyer. We expedite the claims to make the process quickly using the right legal channels.
Should I call my insurance if it wasn't my fault?
You should always call the insurance company if you get into an accident with another driver. You may still want to use coverage from the insurance policy to hasten the recovery process.
The insurance company will also help negotiate the right deal with the at-fault driver’s insurance. They will also defend you against a driver who wants to file an unfit claim. The Consumer Federation of America states that most insurance companies will increase the rate after a not-at-fault claim. Working with an attorney will prevent the increase in your prices and possible reimbursement of the cost.
