Getting involved in a road traffic accident generates plenty of stress, as well as the fear of the unknown concerning any injuries sustained. You have to follow a series of steps in sequential order to build a strong enough case to have a claim approved by either your insurance company or the other party’s insurer. Receiving treatment for injuries sustained represents a crucial step in the financial recovery process, as you must submit copies of medical bills and records to an insurance company to be considered for compensation.
Filing an insurance claim is not the only way to receive compensation for the injuries and property damage sustained as a result of a vehicle collision. After meeting with one of the experienced personal injury attorneys at Morgan and Morgan, you should have enough information to determine whether you have a persuasive case to file a civil lawsuit that seeks monetary damages. To win a civil lawsuit, your road traffic accident lawyer must prove the other party committed one or more acts of negligence. Proving fault requires demonstrating your case meets each of the four elements of negligence.
An experienced road traffic accident attorney can provide legal support in many ways. Your legal counsel files every legal document before the deadline. State law establishes a statute of limitations for you to file a notice of intent to file a civil lawsuit that seeks monetary damages. Your lawyer ensures you file all the proper legal documents before the expiration of the statute of limitations. Another important supportive role for a personal injury attorney is to calculate a fair value for monetary damages. If you submit an unreasonable value for compensation to your insurance company or with the documents that form the foundation of a civil lawsuit, you might not receive the compensation that you deserve.
