Auto insurance companies are supposed to be there to pay for damages after an accident. The entire point of buying insurance is so that you don’t have to worry about your finances while recovering. Why is it, then, that so many insurance companies have a negative reputation for failing to honor claims wherever possible.
The truth is that insurance companies are businesses that need to make money like any other company. To maximize their profits, they need to pay as few claims out each quarter as possible, so they will look for any reason to deny, delay, or devalue a claim. You are even more likely to encounter insurance company resistance if your claim is expensive, as in your suffered severe injuries or your vehicle was totaled.
To get the compensation you deserve from an auto insurance company, you might have to push back with convincing evidence of liability. Of course, you don’t have to worry yourself with these details if you let our car accident attorneys in Toledo represent you. We know where to look to get good documents and proof that shows the other driver caused your crash and, therefore, should be liable for your damages.
We might be able to use the following evidence to build your claim:
- Testimonies from eyewitnesses
- Reports from police officers
- Statements from the other driver
- Footage from your dashcam
There are various forms of negligence that can lead to a car accident. Some of the most common causes of car accidents include:
- Driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs
- Driving while distracted
- Disobeying posted speed limits or signs
- Driving too fast for weather/road conditions
- Driving while drowsy
- Driving recklessly
If you find yourself the victim of a car accident caused by any of the above situations, you most likely have grounds for filing a personal injury claim against the responsible driver.
Car accidents often result in a variety of different types of injuries. Some common injuries to be on the lookout for include:
- Soft tissue injuries
- Bruising, lacerations
- Spinal cord or back injuries
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Burn injuries
- Limb amputation
- Disfigurement or scarring
- Internal organ injuries
Some injuries are more serious than others, but any car accident injury can be potentially dangerous if not treated right away.
The end goal of your car accident claim is to get you the most compensation available. With enough money provided by the liable party, you can start to put your life back together without stressing yourself out. But what is your car accident claim worth? The total value will be the worth of your economic damages and non-economic damages, which we can help you calculate.
Damages in a car accident claim include:
- Economic: An economic damage relates to tangible costs and losses. Medical bills and lost wages are the two most common forms of economic damage.
- Non-economic: A non-economic damage relates to more abstract harm and losses. Pain, suffering, and permanent disability are common types of non-economic damage.
We want to make sure that you get a fair amount of compensation for your claim. A settlement might be possible to reach if the insurance company is reasonable about what is owed to you. If not, we can take them to court to fight for an award granted by a judge or jury.
