Your insurance policy might pay for a rental car. Attorney Joel Cunningham Jr. also can contact the insurance company for the at-fault driver to demand they pay for a rental car until your car is repaired, or you get a new car.
The insurance company for the at-fault party should pay for your medical expenses. Your health insurance, Medicaid or Medicare might pay for medical expenses, but they will seek reimbursement from the at-fault insurer. At Cunningham Law Group, we track the insurance companies and make sure you get all the benefits owed to you.
They work for the insurance company, not for you. And insurance companies are motivated to pay as little as possible. An attorney can deal with the non-cooperative insurance adjuster, so you don’t have to.
Every case is different, so no answer covers everyone. Factors that go into your settlement include the severity of your injuries, the total of your medical costs, the amount of any lost wages you suffered because of the wreck and the amount of insurance coverage held by parties to the collision.
Immediately call 911 or the police. Request emergency medical treatment right away for any injuries. Don’t admit fault, to police or anyone else. Gather contact information for witnesses and contact and insurance information for other drivers. Take photos of the wreck. When it’s safe, move your vehicle out of traffic lanes. Don’t accept a quick settlement from an insurance company. Call a lawyer first.
It can be a long process to get everything you deserve from an insurance company. They might offer you a quick settlement, but you could be giving up a larger settlement if you sign it. Talk to a lawyer first. Cunningham Law Group will evaluate your case for free.
