Here are some examples of questions we’re frequently asked about car accidents:
Do I need a lawyer after a Nashville car accident?
You don’t need a lawyer after you’ve been hurt in a car accident, but it is probably a good idea to get one. Research shows that injured parties who hire a personal injury attorney to represent them usually recover more money than those who don’t. That’s because settling car accident claims is an average day’s work for insurance companies. They have teams of lawyers looking out for their best interests. They may first offer you a lowball settlement that won’t even come close to compensating you for your injuries. Taking advantage of a personal injury lawyer who can look out for your best interests can level the playing field to get you what you deserve.
Do I need to see a doctor if I feel OK?
Right after a car accident, you may feel fine, but some injuries have delayed-onset symptoms. Not only is seeing a doctor right away the best thing you can do for your health and peace of mind, but it can also document any injuries that you may have sustained from your car accident. This documentation becomes an important part of your car accident claim. Not seeking medical attention promptly gives the insurance companies an opportunity to downplay your injuries and limit your compensation.
How much is my car accident claim worth?
That depends, because no two car accidents are exactly the same. The amount of compensation you can recover after being injured in a car accident varies. This is based on the severity of the injuries you’ve suffered, what you’ve lost in terms of wages while you missed work recovering from your injuries, any property damage that occurred, and whether you have been permanently disabled. There could be damages for pain and suffering and punitive damages, as well, in some cases.
How much does a personal injury attorney cost?
Many personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis and offer free initial case consultations. That means you’d pay no upfront costs, and a typical contingency fee is about one-third of the total compensation that is recovered at the conclusion of the claims process, either through a jury verdict or a case settlement.
