What to Do After Being in an Accident

In the aftermath of an accident, it’s crucial to remain calm and prioritize safety.

Documenting the incident, exchanging information with other parties, taking photographs, and gathering witness details can significantly strengthen your case. Do all of those to the extent you can while staying safe.

Yes, exchange information with other involved parties (other drivers, etc.) But, refrain from admitting fault or making apologies is essential, as any statement made can impact the case proceedings.

Call 911. Even if no one was injured, the police will generate a report which can help your case. Receive medical attention. Do so even if you don’t seem like you were hurt. Medical professionals can make that determination.

Call your insurance provider. Tell them the truth. Do so without embellishment.

How Do I Pay for a Personal Injury Attorney?

One of the primary concerns for individuals considering legal representation is the cost involved. Personal injury lawyers often work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you don’t have to pay upfront. Instead, their fees are contingent upon the compensation you receive. This arrangement aligns the lawyer’s interests with yours, motivating them to pursue your case vigorously.

What is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

As for the settlement amount, there’s no fixed formula. Depending upon your case, you very well may be eligible for economic as well as non-economic damages. The value of your settlement depends on factors such as medical bills, loss of earnings, and the pain and suffering endured post-accident.

No matter what, Belal and the team will help you to recover maximum compensation for everything that you’ve been through.

How Long Does a Personal Injury Case Last?

The duration of a personal injury case varies, with negotiations typically taking anywhere from one to twelve weeks. Timely resolutions occur if the insurance company offers a fair settlement promptly.

However, if they attempt to undervalue your claim, we will negotiate aggressively for you. While only a small percentage of cases go to trial, we will be proud to represent you in court. Settlements can occur at any point before the trial, providing opportunities for resolution throughout the legal process.

Who’s Liable for My Personal Injury?

When we take your case, we’ll conduct a thorough investigation of your case to determine the truth. That way, we can bring a case against any and all liable for your injury.

Negligent or reckless drivers, employers, vehicle owners, premises owners, product manufacturers, and public entities are potential entities that could be sued for your injuries. Moreover, even if you bear partial responsibility for the accident, you may still receive compensation through comparative negligence, where your award corresponds to your degree of fault.
