Common Mistakes Made in a Car Accident Claim
Mistakes Made in a Car Accident Claim
Were you in a car accident that was not your fault? If so it’s time that you give Dawson Law Firm a call. Having a qualified Portland car accident lawyer can make all the difference in your unique case. Without capable legal representation on your side it is likely that you will not receive a settlement for the amount you are due. At Dawson Law Group we have handled numerous car accident cases and would be honored to go to work for you. Those who choose not to hire an attorney often make mistakes that can cost them the settlement they deserve.
The at-fault party’s insurance company will tell you that you need to give a recorded statement before they will offer you a settlement amount. You are not required to make this statement in order for a settlement to be reached. It is a mistake for you to make this statement. The insurance adjuster will use what you say out of context in order to knock down the settlement amount.
Those who choose to handle their car accident claim on their own often ask for less than they deserve. Not only do you have the right to have your vehicle repaired or replaced but your medical bills covered. From lost wages to pain and suffering for the injuries you sustained you have the right to be compensated for more than you may know. Without a car accident lawyer on your side you will likely ask for far less than you deserve. At Dawson Law Group we know all that you can be compensated for and will fight to ensure that you receive a fair settlement amount.
You may also take the insurance company’s final offer if you do not have a lawyer on your side. This is the wrong choice to make. Without a Portland car accident lawyer working your case you have no leverage with the insurance company. They know you are not seeking to sue if you do not have an attorney and will refuse to accept you counter offer. At Dawson Law Group we will make sure that the final offer of the at-fault driver’s insurance company is fair. We will not rest until you are justly compensated.
Another frequent mistake is settling before you know the full extent of your injuries. Often injuries will take time to present themselves. It may be a few months before each injury you have suffered has surfaced. The extent of the injury may also be hidden. It will take time to see the severity of an injury and the long term effects. It is essential that you hire a Portland car accident lawyer familiar with your particular injuries. They will be able to ensure that you settle at the right time and receive the amount you are due.
