The first place to seek recovery is with your own insurance provider, which at a minimum will cover a certain amount of medical bills. You may have been paying a slightly higher monthly fee for this additional coverage.
If the amounts you are able to claim from insurance policies are not enough to cover damages to your vehicle or provide for lost wages or pain and suffering, you have the option of filing a lawsuit to recover the difference.
In Arizona, car accident lawsuits must be filed within two years of the incident, so you have some time to decide if it is a route you want to pursue.
Car accidents are major events that can turn our world upside down. Personal injury compensation is meant to restore your life to where it was before the car accident occurred, which means you can recover any economic, or specific, damages that you lost as a result of the accident, such as medical bills, money spent to replace personal property lost in the accident, lost wages, and any other expenses you incur.
Keep track of all of these expenses because it is likely that the insurance company will want to examine the bills before agreeing to pay them.
Recovering from an automobile accident can be stressful and frustrating, especially if you have ongoing medical treatment and physical therapy, are unable to work or need to shop for a new car. Adding the stress of negotiating a settlement with a hostile insurance company is the last thing you need while your life is on hold. Working with a car accident lawyer can result in a settlement that is fair. We work on a contingent fee basis, meaning that we only get paid if we are successful in collecting your claim.
Petersen Johnson’s car accident lawyers can deal with the insurance company on your behalf to ensure you get appropriate compensation to cover not only medical bills, but also pain and suffering.
You can call us immediately after getting injured in an auto accident. One of our car accident lawyers will come to meet you to help you sort through the details of the incident. We do everything we can to make sure you receive the biggest settlement possible.
