1. You need medical treatment but can’t afford it after your accident.

After a car accident, it is very important that you get the proper medical treatment.  First, you need the right medical professionals to diagnose you to see the extent of your injuries.  You may be more injured than you think.  The sooner you get diagnosed, the sooner you begin to heal.  Once you know how hurt you are, you then need to get the right medical treatment for your injuries.  All of that is easier said than done if you aren’t able to pay for medical treatment.  Fortunately our team of personal injury lawyers works every day with qualified medical professionals who treat accident victims.  Many of these professionals will treat you at no up-front cost to you.  Instead, they get paid through what is called a Letter of Protection.  A Letter of Protection is a letter we send to a medical provider that guarantees if we get a settlement in your personal injury case that we will repay the medical provider out of that settlement.  If we aren’t able to get a settlement in your accident case, the medical provider will not be paid.  Medical providers are taking a risk that we can settle your case for a fair dollar amount.  They are comfortable taking that risk because we are very good at settling our clients’ car accident cases at fair value.  If you need help getting medical treatment for your injuries after a car accident, call us right now and we will work to get you to the right medical specialists for treatment at no up-front costs to you.

2. You want the other driver to pay for your medical bills.

One of the main reasons people call our personal injury law firm is that they have substantial medical bills after a car accident and want to make sure that those bills are paid.  Having your credit ruined because of medical bills from an accident someone else caused is just adding insult to injury.  We deal with issues like this every day and are skilled at making the at-fault driver pay for our clients’ medical bills after a car accident.  If the other driver’s car insurance policy isn’t sufficient to pay for your medical bills, we will work to make your own insurance company cover those bills.  Many of our clients come to us wanting only to get their medical bills paid.  They are often surprised when we are able to get their bills paid and put some money in their pocket for their pain and suffering.  If you have medical bills from your car accident, contact us now and we will work to make the other driver’s insurance company pay them.

3. You need help getting your car repaired or replaced.

One of the services we provide for free to our car accident clients is working to settle their claim for damage to their vehicle.  You probably know that the other driver’s insurance company should pay to repair or replace your car.  But you may not know that you could be entitled to an additional payment because a car is worth less after an accident than it was before – even if all the repairs were handled properly.  That’s because fair or not, many people believe that a car is “never the same” after an accident.  This is why we often recover “diminished value” settlements to compensate our clients for the loss of value of their vehicle.  And of course, we also work to ensure that the insurance company pays a fair amount to repair or replace your vehicle.  If you’re not sure what to do about your damaged car after an accident, our team of car accident lawyers can help.  Contact us now for help.

4. You want fair compensation for your pain and suffering.

Many of the injury lawyers and staff members at our law firm have been in car accidents themselves.  We know that even minor accidents can cause major pain and suffering.  Worse still, that pain can interfere with your activities of everyday life, like walking, shopping, holding your child or pet, and performing your job.  Our car accident lawyers know how to make insurance companies pay fair settlement values for pain and suffering after a car accident.  We maintain a very expensive library of settlements from around the country broken down by injury.  So we don’t just guess if a settlement offer is fair. We research it and make sure that the insurance company isn’t trying to settle your claim for less than it is worth.  If you’re hurting and don’t know what your car accident case may be worth, please call us now so we can help.

5. You’ve missed work and need to be repaid for your lost wages.

Not only is missing time off of work because of a car accident annoying, it often costs money because  many employers won’t pay workers for time spent at the doctor’s office.  Thankfully, the law requires an at-fault driver to reimburse the innocent driver for his or her lost wages.  We will work to make sure that you’re properly compensated for all of the time you take off work due to your car accident.  Contact us now if you’ve missed work because of a car accident and need help getting paid for the hours or days that you missed.

6. You don’t know your rights after an accident.

Few people who get into car accidents know all of their rights and responsibilities.  You might know you only have a certain amount of time to make a claim or file a lawsuit, but did you know that how much time you have varies depending upon who caused the accident?  If a government employee caused your accident, there may be a different deadline than if a regular citizen did.  Did you know your insurance company has to give you the benefit of “good faith and fair dealing,” while the other driver’s insurance company does not?  Even simple car accident cases can have complicated legal rules involved.  Our job is to know those rules and explain them to you.  If you’re got any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact us right now for immediate help.  The longer the wait, the more you risk waiving your rights – and you don’t want to do that.
