If you suffer an injury, you may have a legal claim for compensation. This includes some injury, illness, or harm caused by the negligence of another party. If severe, injuries may impact a person’s ability to work, perform regular tasks, or even provide self-care. The consequences may be long-lasting. Injured parties may suffer a permanent disability or require long-term medical care. It is always an option to assert a cause of action and pursue legal recourse if you have suffered an injury in any type of accident.
One option after an accident is to entrust the resolution of the claim to the insurance companies of both drivers. How the insurance claims process is resolved depends on the party at fault and on the types of coverage that you have at the time of the accident.
The other driver’s property damage liability coverage will pay for repairs to your vehicle up to the policy’s limit. Medical bills would be covered up to the limits of the other driver’s bodily injury liability coverage, which is required in most states. In no-fault states, personal injury protection (PIP) coverage would be a factor. If the other driver does not have insurance, or enough coverage to pay for your losses, uninsured or underinsured motorist coverages would apply.
The important thing to remember is that relying on the insurance companies to ensure that you receive fair compensation may not be in your best interests. Insurance companies are for-profit businesses that have a bottom line. Despite elaborate, expensive marketing campaigns promising to deliver special coverage when policyholders need it most, these companies have a vested interest in paying out less than what policyholders are paying in without question. Many of us as consumers and policyholders have learned this the hard way.
Perhaps a more preferable or even easier option in this situation is to seek the legal advice of an experienced personal injury attorney. A knowledgeable personal injury attorney will be professional and objective. A seasoned, competent personal injury attorney will help you gather evidence, calculate your damages, and apprise you of all your options moving forward.
