What exactly do car accident injury attorneys do?
Once you have been allocated one of the car accident injury attorneys by Accident Advice Helpline, they will start to collect some information about your car accident. They may ask you any of the following questions:
- Were you a driver or passenger in the car?
- If you were a passenger, where were you sitting?
- Were you wearing a seatbelt?
- Did your airbag deploy?
- Were you thrown out of the vehicle?
- What caused the accident?
- How fast were you travelling?
- What were the weather conditions like at the time?
- Were there any witnesses?
It is a good idea to sit quietly and have a think about the accident, so that you can provide accurate information about what happened. If you can provide a sketch or photographs, then this can be very useful as well.
Car accident injury attorneys use all the information about the car accident to prove that someone was at fault. This person is the person from whom you will be claiming. In practice, it is likely to be a driver of another vehicle, and they were probably insured so you will be claiming from a large car insurance company and not the driver themselves.
Once car accident injury attorneys have proved that someone was to blame for their client’s accident, they set about negotiating a sum of money in compensation. This is a skilled task, and Accident Advice Helpline car accident injury attorneys have an enviable reputation as fierce negotiators. They always fight exceptionally hard to get their clients the absolute best levels of compensation. In general terms, the people with more serious injuries will get the higher levels of compensation.
When do people normally contact car accident attorneys?
This is very variable. Some people contact Accident Advice Helpline almost straight away after the accident — they get home and then pick up the phone; some even call on their mobiles from the hospital! Others wait a lot longer. There is a legal time limit of three years in which to make a claim, so it is a good idea not to wait for too long. If you get things started with Accident Advice Helpline quickly, then it will be easier to locate your medical notes and witnesses for the accident.
