How To Determine If You Have a Good Car Accident Case

Injury Accident Attorneys

Nearly every civil case brings one common thing i.e., damages. Damage refers to the physical injury, financial loss, or damage to the property which is entitled to compensation from the other party. Seeking compensation for the injuries sustained in a car accident is a common practice. However, there are several factors that affect the time span to resolve the case as well as the compensation amount. These factors can include damages to the vehicle, lost wages, or medical expenses.

Despite these factors, the surety of the compensation amount depends upon the fact of how well you prove your case. Consider the following factors that significantly increase the chances of compensation:

Copy of Police Report

You must obtain a copy of the police report that is considered significant proof of the accident. The police report contains details about the accident which also includes the name of the investigating officer. A very common practice among insurance companies is that they contact the investigating officer to confirm whether your statements regarding injuries.

Immediate Medical Attention

Right after the accident, did you receive medical attention, visit your physician or emergency room? In many cases, failing to seek immediate medical attention bars the victim’s claims for compensation. So, whether you are injured or have doubts or injuries, immediately seek medical attention to make your claim strong.

Pre-Existing Injuries

If you have any preexisting injuries or medical conditions, ask your doctor to take fresh ex-rays or ultrasounds of the injured body parts. This way, the comparison between both the reports- pre-accident and post-accident, can explain the intensity of the damage the accident had caused. In case the accident did not cause any harm and your injuries are preexisting the accident, you may not be able to make a claim.

The DUI Charges

Consider if the offender is charged with a DUI. Several states hold the criminal driver liable for the damages regardless of who’s actual fault it was.

Speaking to Others at the Spot

If you make any statement at the scene or tell anyone that it was my fault, or anything similar to this, will be used against you. Similarly, if the other party says something similar to others, you may want to make a note of this statement and see whether others have heard the driver saying this.

Witnesses at the Scene

If there were witnesses at the scene, you can seek their assistance in proving your case. Witnesses at the scene prove to be very helpful in making your claim a successful one.

Pictures or Videos of the Scene

Picture or video evidence is considered highly important in proving any case. If you were not able to speak to the witnesses, take pictures of the scene. In certain cases, picture evidence becomes sufficient in awarding compensation to the victim.

Keeping the Record of On-Going Damages

Have you made sure that you have been keeping a record of the damages following the car accident such as the number of days and wages lost because of the accident? Moreover, making a record of interference with daily activities, visits to the doctor, etc. also helps in substantiating your claims for the damages.

5 stars just isnt enough for Andrew Marcantel, Marc Victor, and the entire staff here.When my... boyfriend was wrongly accused of a totally vile crime, neither of us had any experience navigating the "just-us" system.If you've faced potentially life-altering accusations, and you feel like the system is set up to empower police, prosecutors, judges, and pretty much everyone except you, then you're right! If you want to level the playing feild, Attorneys for Freedom will accomplish that.Some others have commented about the price. Good representation does cost money, unfortunately. What is a persons future worth?Compared to the competition, which is also expensive, the value you will get at this law firm is just unbelievable. Andrew especially is so great at walking you through possible scenerios, guiding you through important decisions, and has the experience to truly get good results. Extremely knowledgeable and creative not just "aggressive". He is also an excellent communicator, both in the office and in the court.Speaking of communication, the paralegal team at even some more expensive law firms will leave you wondering what it is they are paid to do. This is not the case at Attorneys for Freedom. Ashley Crispino and Kaylie Kline did an amazing job at both keeping us in the loop and being available when needed.Reading "Case Dismissed" after what felt like an eternity of fighting was the best outcome we could have ever asked for.I told my Aunt who was very worried about us at the height of all the absurdity that I felt like having Andy on our side was better than prayer. And I was right.read more

This is my first time ever needing an attorney and my attorney was Kate and she did an amazing job... with my case! Kate took time to go through all of the evidence so she understood everything before going to court. Kate assistant Madalyn was also super helpful and very sweet! Anytime I called she was very understanding and helped me walk through the process when I did not understand something and always had an upbeat positive attitude! If I ever need an attorney again I will definitely being going back to Kate!read more
