Last weekend, I was in a head-on collision. The other driver was drunk and came into my lane. It was completely his fault. I have injuries to my arms, legs and back. I am worried that there will not be enough insurance to pay for all of my medical bills. What should I do?
Although every case is different, we start the analysis the same way in every auto injury case. First, can we prove liability? In other words, can we show that it was the other guys fault? Here, we can show that easily because the other driver was drunk and came into your lane. But, that is definitely not the end of the story.
Next, we look at damages. Your claim must be complete and comprehensive in order to receive full value. We need to make sure your injuries are accurately diagnosed, documented and treated. The causal connection between your accident and each of your injuries must be established. It is not enough that it is discussed orally with your doctors. It must be legally and conclusively established in the medical records.
Finally, we look at insurance coverage. We will look for all possible sources of recovery. We will maximize the value of your claim by including all legally relevant information. This includes data that will be input into the insurance company’s computer model to establish claim value. We will minimize the expenses paid out from settlement proceeds.
Following this process faithfully and meticulously is what helps us achieve our clients’ goals in these types of situations even if there is insufficient insurance coverage. You are entitled to fair compensation for your injuries, and we will do everything in our power to see that you get it.
