How To Protect Your Legal Rights After a Car Accident

Legal Rights After a Car AccidentWhen you are injured in a car accident that was caused by the negligent or reckless actions of another party, you have a right to be “made whole.”  However, just because you have the right to be compensated for your injuries and property damage, it does not mean that you will automatically be made whole. In order to ensure that you obtain the full extent of the compensation that you deserve, you should take certain important steps to protect your case and legal rights.

The Importance of Documentation

Documenting the scene of the accident immediately after it occurred is important.  You can document the scene of the car accident by taking the following steps:

  • Talk to eye witnesses to the accident
  • Call the police
  • Take detailed pictures of the scene
  • Obtain all pertinent information from the parties involved in the accident

Having Patience

It can take months or even several years for your personal injury claim to come to a resolution, especially if you have suffered serious injuries.  In addition, it takes time for your case to move through the Court.

The bottom line is that dealing with insurance adjusters requires patience. If you want to obtain the maximum settlement that you deserve, it is essential that you remain patient. When an adjuster becomes suspicious that the claimant is anxious or eager to settle his or her claim, the adjuster may believe that the claimant will take any offer, regardless of how low it is. As such, it is in your best interest to remain patient and not give the insurance adjuster any excuse to lowball your claim and corner you into accepting a settlement that you do not deserve.

Hiring the Right Personal Injury Attorney

Hiring the right personal injury attorney to handle your claim is key in protecting your legal rights and obtaining the full compensation that you deserve. It is not uncommon for some insurance adjusters to deliberately delay and/or block payment of personal injury claims. However, when a reputable and experienced attorney is involved, the adjuster is less likely to play such delay tactic games.

Client Testimonials

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
