The Who, What, and Why of Suing After an Accident

Being involved in a car accident is scary and the aftermath can be overwhelming, especially if you weren’t at fault. A lot of people hesitate to hire a lawyer because they don’t want to get in a big legal battle with the person who hit them.

You’re left asking yourself:

“Do I have to sue?”

“Who do I sue?”

“How do I Sue?”

“Should I sue the person who caused my accident?”

So let’s break down the who, what, and why of suing after an accident and how we can help.

Who Do You Sue?

When you hire a lawyer, you’re almost never suing the person who caused the accident — you’re suing their insurance. The person who hit you probably wants you to get the help you need. But their insurance company has one goal in all of this — to give you as little money as possible.

When they can get away with it, they’ll leave you paying out of your own pocket for medical bills and other expenses you have to pay after an accident that wasn’t your fault. AND THAT’S NOT RIGHT.

What Are You Suing Over?

Depending on the circumstances of your case, we may pursue compensation for your:

  1. Medical bills, including hospital stays, surgeries, follow-up doctor visits, diagnostic imaging tests, therapy appointments, medications, etc.
  2. Vehicle repair or replacement costs
  3. Long-term care needs and future anticipated treatment costs
  4. Lost income and reduced earning capacity for the future, if you cannot work the same job or make the same money as you did before the car crash
  5. Pain and suffering

Why Should You Sue?

It’s important to understand that filing a lawsuit against someone doesn’t mean that they’re paying you out of their own pocket. It’s true their rates might go up, but that’s because they caused an accident. A rate increase is likely regardless of whether you decide to file a lawsuit.

The situation you’ve found yourself in is the exact reason we have insurance. We don’t pay monthly fees just to line the pockets of the insurance companies. It’s there to help you get on your feet after an accident. So give us a call and get the help you need.
