The Process of Filing a Car Accident Claim
How your car accident case unfolds will depend on your specific situation. However, we can tell you that, in general, there are a few common steps you might expect in the process.
- Your attorney will gather information. A lawyer will meet with you to learn more about your case. They will review all the expenses you face to determine how much you are owed. They will then investigate the causes of your accident to find out who was at fault.
- Your attorney will demand payment. Once your attorney knows who is responsible for your crash and how much you are entitled to, they will demand payment on your behalf. In many cases, an insurance company is the party responsible for giving you compensation.
- The insurance companies will correspond directly with your lawyer. You don’t need to worry about speaking to another driver’s insurance company. Our team will handle all correspondence with insurance companies, so you can focus on healing and getting your life back to normal.
- Negotiations for compensation could result in a trial or a settlement. If the insurance company, other attorneys, and/or the person responsible for your crash are willing to negotiate a settlement, then no trial will be needed. However, we believe that all cases should be prepared to go all the way to trial. This ensures that our clients get maximum compensation in their case.
- If your claim is successful, you will receive compensation for your injuries. If your case results in a settlement or a favorable verdict, you will receive payment in accordance with the terms set forth by the settlement or verdict.

Don’t Speak to Insurance Companies Without First Consulting a Car Accident Lawyer
Understand the difference between your insurance company and another driver’s insurance company. You should report your crash to your insurer as soon as possible. However, you don’t need to accept your insurance company’s offers if they don’t meet your needs.
If you are contacted by another person’s insurance company, you should not speak with them under any circumstance. This is best left to our team. We know that insurance companies make profits by offering people less than they deserve or by denying the validity of their claims entirely.
When a representative of another person’s insurance company reaches out to you, refer them to your attorney and say nothing else. They will try to use your words against you, and you don’t want to give them that opportunity. Let us deal with insurance companies, so you can be sure your claim has the best possible chance of a successful outcome.
