– Resolving A Car Wreck Claim On Your Own –
Should You Handle Your Own Car Wreck Claim?
There are personal injury car accident claims where you do not need a lawyer. Mostly, we are talking about minor cases involving subjective injuries that resolve within a few months, and other claims where the injuries are not substantial.
These claims may, in some instances, be handled without a lawyer. But if you choose this path, you need to do the research and get some advice on the best way to proceed.
Although not advisable…
You may be able to settle your auto wreck claim on your own. First, you need to call the negligent driver’s insurance company and start a claim. Let the claims adjuster know about your property damage and medical treatment, or your intention to seek medical treatment if needed. Subsequently, you will need to give them a monetary “demand” based on the factors stated above. As previously stated, an insurance company bases its value of a claim on whether a court of law will award more than the amount of your “demand”. If an insurance company believes that it will be cheaper to go to trial than it is to pay your “demand,” the insurance company will not offer a reasonable amount. Your auto wreck claim deserves to be attended.
With that in mind, if you are not being represented by an attorney, an insurance company will likely decide that it will be cheaper to go to trial with their attorneys than it is to pay your “demand” due to the fact that they believe you will not be able to get a favorable judgment in a court of law. Insurance companies have attorneys on staff, and so should you.
The experienced attorneys at Matthew Pillado, PLLC will fight to make sure your claim is valued at what it should be or will fight for you in a court of law to show the judge and jury exactly how much your damages are worth.
