Relieving Your Stress After a Car Accident
Our overall strategy is applicable to car accidents just like premises liability claims or workers’ compensation claims. Our first task is to sit down and listen. We meet with our clients over the phone or by Zoom to let them know we have an experienced team here to provide that assurance that there is a pathway to recovery. Our first task is to listen, but then after that, we identify a strategy to move forward and to recover the maximum compensation for our clients.
Multi-Vehicle Car Accident
There are multiple vehicle accidents in Huntsville. The Parkway is a magnet for those claims, as well as 565. Oftentimes, we employ investigators to figure out who is at fault. Our police and first responders in Huntsville do a good job of investigating those claims, but sometimes they don’t have the resources or the time to do that sufficiently. We have a network of folks we work with to figure out what happened. Oftentimes, there are multiple parties who contributed to cause the accident. In those cases, you can pursue multiple insurance carriers who contribute toward our clients’ recovery.
Hit and Run Car Accident
Unfortunately, hit and run claims are pretty common. They are difficult cases because you have to establish that the accident was caused by the hit and run driver. The phantom motorist is the legal term for that. If our client has uninsured motorist coverage on their auto policy, we can make a claim under those coverages for their medical bills, lost wages, pain, mental anguish, and whatever other damages they have sustained. Those are complex claims. We have helped many clients who have been in that situation.
Other Driver Doesn’t Have Insurance
Unfortunately, in Alabama as many as 20% of the drivers on the roadway have no insurance. Many of the rest of them, who ware insured, have minimum limits, meaning that there’s only $25,000 available for any injured person who is seeking a recovery under the liability policy. What we hope when we meet with our client is that our client has purchased what is called uninsured motorist coverage, which is coverage added onto their liability policy that stands in the shoes of the at-fault party’s insurance and adds additional insurance coverage for their injury and damages.
Emotional Distress from a Car Accident Client
Many people call us for help with a car accident claim because they are injured and have lost their mode of transportation. The predominant attitude or concern is how do I pay for my medical expenses. What about my lost wages? What about not being able to get from point A to point B, or even get to the doctor because my car’s been totaled? If you hire us, we are going to determine what benefits are available under your insurance policy and we’re going to pursue the at-fault party for all the coverage that they have as well.
