Getting Compensation for Auto Accident Injuries
When a person is injured by a car collision that causes injury and/or damages, it’s possible to seek compensation for them. With the assistance of a personal injury lawyer, you can have your case sorted out for you.
Filing an Insurance Claim
When you’re filing an insurance claim after an auto accident, make sure that you proceed with caution. What you say and do with your claim can have an impact on how much compensation you can receive for your injuries and damages.
Uninsured and Underinsured Motorists
Some people choose to drive with little to no insurance, which places themselves and others at risk. In the event that the driver injures someone, the insurance they have or don’t have won’t allow them to pay for the injuries and damages caused. The injured person may be covered by their own insurance, if they have uninsured and under-insured motorist protection on their policy.
When you have no-fault insurance, it doesn’t matter who was at fault in a car collision. The driver is able to receive compensation from their insurer either way. The state has to have a no-fault insurance structure for this to be possible. There are certain laws that determine how much, when and how long the injured individual can collect compensation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Motor Vehicle Accidents
Q: I have been in a motor vehicle accident. Should I go to a doctor?
A: If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, you should see a doctor right away. First, you should see a doctor for your own well-being. You may not be able to discern the extent of your injuries yourself; a small ache could be something significant, or it could be nothing at all. Only a doctor can tell you for sure. Second, you should see a doctor because if you decide to bring a legal claim against the at-fault driver or another party, you will need documentation of your injuries and what you did to fix them.
Q: Do I have to go to court if I want to recover monetary damages?
A: Maybe. Your case may settle even before your attorney files a lawsuit; on the other hand, it may go all the way to a trial and a jury verdict. The majority of lawsuits are settled before they get to trial, but what happens in your case depends on the facts, the law and the parties involved.
