What to Expect: Filing an Auto Accident Claim
June 12th, 2019|
Car accidents can be painful and confusing, but the most important way you can protect your health and your rights to compensation after a crash is by getting medical treatment as soon as possible. Even if you don’t think you’ve been seriously injured, it’s important to get examined by a medical professional to rule out any internal injuries. Whether you see a first responder at the scene of the crash or visit the hospital or a doctor in the days following the accident, getting medical attention creates a record that links your injuries to the accident—and can serve as valuable evidence if you decide to file a claim.
But you may be wondering what to do next, especially if the crash wasn’t your fault. At Fleschner Law, it’s our goal to help car accident victims like you get the compensation they deserve for their injury-related expenses, and we’re here to guide you every step of the way. Find out what happens if we take your auto accident claim.
How We Help Auto Accident Victims
When you contact us after a car crash in Indiana or Illinois, we’ll ask some questions to learn more about what happened. If we decide to take your case, we’ll begin collecting evidence to support your claim. Police reports, photos of the accident scene, and witness testimonies can all serve as valuable evidence and help us determine who was at fault for the crash.
Once we determine who can be held responsible for your injuries, we’ll calculate a fair settlement offer based on your injury-related expenses, such as your current and future lost wages, current and future medical expenses, and pain and suffering. Then, we’ll present that settlement to the responsible party’s insurance company. If they refuse to pay you what you deserve or deny the claim altogether, we won’t hesitate to take your case to trial.
