If you were involved in a traffic collision, your injuries likely required medical care, which resulted in substantial expenses. Additionally, you might have needed to stay in the hospital for an extended period, meaning you had to miss work and may not have received wages for the time you were out. The unexpected financial strains and emotional tolls arising from a crash can be stressful and frustrating. When you pursue a claim against the at-fault driver with the help of our motor vehicle accident lawyers in Cleveland, you can seek compensation for the damages you suffered, alleviating some of your burdens. Our team can do what it takes to work toward a favorable result on your behalf.
What's the Process of Pursuing a Motor Vehicle Accident Claim?
To begin your motor vehicle accident case, you must submit a claim with the at-fault party's insurance company. You must provide detailed information about the accident and evidence supporting your assertion that the other driver was responsible. Getting a lawyer's help right away is essential for effectively submitting your claim. At Henderson & Weatherly, we know all relevant information to include at the beginning stages of a traffic collision case and can ensure you've provided all the necessary information.
The insurance company will then conduct its own investigation. It is trying to gather evidence proving that its customer was not at fault or that you were partially responsible for the collision.
You, your attorney, and the insurance company will then enter into negotiations regarding compensation. The insurance company is not on your side and is generally trying to protect its bottom line. Therefore, during the initial talks, it may offer a low settlement amount. Before accepting a payout, speak with our Cleveland motor vehicle accident lawyers. We will evaluate your losses and expenses to determine whether the offer is fair (typically, the first offer isn't). And we can aggressively work toward just compensation.
If you are unable to agree on a settlement amount with the insurance company. You may have to file a lawsuit and take your case to court. This can be a lengthy process, as a judge or jury will hear the case and decide whether to award compensation. Although most motor vehicle accident matters are settled out of court, our trial-tested attorneys at Henderson & Weatherly will be prepared to litigate your case.
What Damages Can I Recover?
Motor vehicle accidents can result in serious injuries requiring treatment and time to heal. The harm you suffered can affect many aspects of your life, and compensation is a way to return your life to normal (or as close to normal as possible, given your injuries).
Damages that can be recovered in a motor vehicle accident case include, but are not limited to:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future lost wages
- Pain and suffering
The amount of compensation you receive depends on several factors, such as the extent of your injuries and the nature of the accident.
