What Is My Car Accident Case Worth?

Each case is unique and dependent upon the circumstances. No two cases are alike! This is why an experienced lawyer is needed. Your lawyer will comb through your case, calculate all of your related losses, and write a demand for the insurance company. Read more.

What Does Your Firm Charge?

There is no cost and no fee to you unless your case is won and we obtain a settlement or an award on your behalf. At that time, we would charge the industry stand 1/3 of any settlement or award. Again, you pay nothing unless we win. 

What If The Other Driver Doesn’t Have Insurance?

If the other driver does not have insurance, there are some options available to you. First, you might be able to collect uninsured motorist benefits from the vehicle you were in at the time of the accident. Rest assured, your insurance company will not raise your rates if you were not at fault. You might also be able to collect uninsured motorist benefits from other automobiles insured and owned by people in the household you live in.  Read more.

How Do I Recover Property Damage To My Vehicle?

The mechanic you choose to repair your car will need to meet with the insurance company’s claims appraiser to calculate the damage to your vehicle. The mechanic working on your car is the best person to negotiate your property damage claim with the insurance company. This process will ensure the damage to your vehicle is taken care of and you will not have to pay for any hidden damages later on.  Read more.

Do I Have To Hire a Car Accident Lawyer?

While it is not required that you hire a lawyer for your car accident claim, it is highly recommended as it will greatly help your chances of getting fully compensated. The insurance company is like any other business. They want to make the most money possible. To do so, they want to offer you as little as possible to make the car accident claim go away. If you hire a lawyer, the insurance company knows they can’t use their normal tactics to compensate you less. 

However, if you decide not to hire a lawyer and you choose to speak with the other driver’s insurance company, our lawyers highly recommend that you do not discuss the details of how the accident occurred. Insurance people are very good at twisting people’s words around and making it seem like you were either partially or fully at fault. 

Additionally, do not accept any settlement offers until your doctor has released you from medical treatment and you are completely recovered. A premature agreement on settlement could leave you paying for health-related issues that you could have otherwise had the insurance company pay for. 

What Time Limit Do I Have To Bring a Lawsuit After My Accident?

The statute of limitations, which is the technical term for your time frame to file a lawsuit, in RI & MA is three (3) years. However, in the case of minors, the statute is longer.

With this in mind, it is always in your best interest to contact a car accident lawyer directly following your accident. By doing so, you ensure that you get full value for your injuries and your lawsuit is filed in a timely manner.
