Having a car accident is stressful, and it is often painful. Dealing with the consequences of a car accident does not have to be something done alone. Attorney Jacob Goad will be there to assist you every step of the way as you recover from your injuries and will assist you to make the appropriate claims.
Innocent and injured
What happens when you suffer an injury after a car crash?
When someone is injured due to a car accident, and it is not the fault of the injured person, that person has rights under our laws.
When you are hit, and it is the fault of the other party, the insurance company for the person who is at–fault has to pay for the damage to your vehicle. Also, if you have been injured, they’re responsible for paying your medical bills and for pain and suffering, among other forms of compensation.
The insurance company won’t call me back
Unfortunately injuries can be quite painful and can, in some cases, last a lifetime. It’s frustrating when you call and the insurance company doesn’t answer. In many cases I’ve seen, the insurance company does not want to pay the person what is fair for their injuries. In other cases. they do not even answer the phone.
Is what they’re telling you the honest truth?
There are times when I’ve seen an insurance company representative trying to mislead a person by saying that he or she is not entitled to certain compensation. To be sure, it is important to go to a lawyer who has experience in this area so that you know what you’re entitled to receive.
It is often recommended that you have a lawyer to stand up for your interests against the large insurance company, because going it alone feel like an uphill battle. But we’ve fought this fight before, and that is why we are here.
Main areas of compensation for a personal injury case
The insurance company is responsible for paying medical bills related to the accident.
The insurance company has the responsibility to pay you for the pain and suffering that you experience due to an accident.
The insurance company is responsible for paying you for your time away from work, mileage, and medication related to the accident.
And in some cases, the insurance company has the responsibility to pay loved ones of an individual who suffers an accident that requires attendant care services. An accident can interfere with a marriage relationship for a time, and the individual’s partner is also entitled to compensation when there is an interruption to physical intimacy.
There are bad accidents that unfortunately sometimes result in the death of the innocent person. This case is often referred to as wrongful death. When someone dies from an accident, the family can be compensated. The family has rights to compensation for the loss of their loved one. These damages include the income the person earned to support their family and the cost of the deceased person’s medical treatment before they died. Damages could also include pain and suffering before their death, and the deceased’s burial and funeral.
Auto accidents at work
For car accidents that occur at work, you may have one or two cases. These cases tend to be complicated due to the overlap of different policies and liens.
