Why Pursuing a Car Accident Claim Is Not a DIY Project

If you have been injured in a car accident, you should contact an experienced car accident lawyer to handle your claim as soon as possible. An experienced attorney knows the injury claims process and has a better chance of obtaining full compensation for you than you would on your own. The legal fee comes out of what the insurance company pays. You pay nothing out of pocket for professional legal help.

A car accident injury claim is not a Do-It-Yourself project. Don’t try to handle a case on your own. In Nevada, contact Sam & Ash Injury Law in Las Vegas.

1 – The Insurance Company Is Not Your Friend

Insurance companies are for-profit businesses. An insurance adjuster has a legal duty to make sure their company pays out as little as possible to resolve a claim.

When an insurance adjuster makes a settlement offer, it is based on past payouts for injuries and actuarial statistics about your likely recovery and survival. Adjusters already know how much they want to offer you, often even before you have left the hospital.

An initial settlement offer has nothing to do with your actual injuries or your losses. It’s an attempt to limit the insurer’s liability by closing the case quickly. You can bet the initial offer is less than the full value of your claim.

2 – You Don’t Have the Needed Experience

Being significantly injured in a car accident is a once-in-a-lifetime ordeal for most crash victims. In addition to pain and suffering, you may be dealing with costly and worrisome medical procedures, inability to work, and other unexpected changes to your life. The insurance adjuster you are dealing with knows that people who have been seriously injured are likely experiencing financial stress. Insurance companies have records and reports that tell them exactly what to expect after an accident like yours.

The insurance adjuster may make what looks like a decent settlement offer at first glance. But you are still recovering from your injuries, with rehabilitation scheduled to begin soon. If you agree to a quick settlement before the full costs of your medical treatment are known, you may be stuck with part of the medical costs yourself. You cannot go back to the insurance company and ask for more money after accepting a settlement offer.

3 – The Right Attorney Will Fight for Every Penny Your Claim Is Worth

Car accident attorneys deal with crash injuries and the pain and suffering that follows a car accident.

The car accident attorneys at Sam & Ash Injury Law know what you’re going through, and we want to help you. We handle car accident injury claims on a contingency fee basis. This means our fee is contingent on recovering money for you. If we don’t obtain a settlement or a court award, we don’t get paid. Further, the fee we charge is a percentage of what we recover, plus costs. This creates an incentive for us to recover as much as possible for you. Our interests are aligned with your interests.

We will calculate all that your car accident injuries have cost you, including your pain and suffering. We will present your total accident-related losses in our demand to insurers on your behalf. We have support staff who help us do this. They know what can be claimed and who to contact for needed documents. Our aim is to seek maximum compensation for your claim.

4 – You Don’t Have To Worry About the Cost

We will provide legal services and assistance to you because we believe in your case your right to be properly compensated for your injuries and other losses. You will not pay any legal fee upfront. We take our agreed-upon fees and costs out of the insurance settlement or court award. We believe a great law firm can get more money in your pocket while giving you the time to focus on your injuries, so that you can make the fullest financial and physical recovery possible.

If we do not think we can move forward with a successful claim, we will tell you. We’ll do all we can to assist you, but we will not lead you on or waste your time.

5 – An Attorney Can Help You Get Your Life Back on Track

The objective of a legal claim after a car accident is to help an individual who has been unjustly harmed recover financially. It is not a get-rich-quick scheme. At the end of a successful claim, you should have no debts due to the accident and your injuries.

Nevada law gives you the right to demand compensation for your physical and mental pain and suffering if someone else injured you as a result of carelessness or negligence. You should not be financially burdened by another driver’s disregard for safety. As your car accident attorneys, we will work to see that you are made financially whole.

We’ll also help you get other aspects of your life back on track. If you have been severely injured in a car accident, your life may be different. In addition to handling your legal claim, we can refer you to medical specialists, counselors, or therapists as necessary, and make other referrals to professionals in the Las Vegas community who we know and trust to help you.

As your case moves forward, we can prepare a letter informing your creditors that we are representing you in a claim that we expect to conclude in a payment to you. Many creditors will pause collection efforts if they understand an injury claim is pending. We can negotiate with lien holders to reduce any liens against your settlement.

Pursuing a car accident injury claim is not a DIY project. When you engage Sam & Ash Injury Law, you will receive personalized legal representation. You will come to know us. You’ll know your attorney on a first-name basis, because that is What’s Right.
