If you suffer from one or more injuries caused by the negligence of another driver, you might qualify to receive monetary damages by filing a personal injury lawsuit. Even if the vehicle collision turned out to be an accident, you have the right to seek compensation by submitting the right documentation with an insurance claim. A car accident settlement, through your insurance company or with the attorney representing the other party, covers the costs of medical bills, property damage, and the wages lost because you cannot work.
The car accident settlement process involves much more than simply filing a claim with your insurance company (or the other party’s insurer if the other party committed one or more acts of negligence). You can expect a thorough investigation conducted by an insurance adjuster, as well as the other party’s attorney if your case goes to trial. If an investigation conducted by your attorney and the other party’s insurance company or legal representative finds some common ground, then the car accident settlement process reaches the negotiation phase.
