Morrisville Automobile Accident Attorneys and Personal Injury Lawyers
If you have been hurt in a serious automobile accident as a result of another driver’s negligence, you are entitled to pursue fair compensation for your injuries. The Morrisville personal injury lawyers of Maginnis Law can assist you through all steps of the claim process, including negotiating with the at-fault driver’s automobile insurance company and, if necessary, filing suit and litigating your case. To speak with one of our lawyers, call our office at 919.480.8526.
The claim process typically begins by locating all available sources of insurance coverage and then making demand for compensation. This demand should usually only be made after you are aware of the full extent of your injuries. In most circumstances, you will only have one opportunity to settle with the insurance company. If you reach settlement before you know the full extent of your injuries, you may be left to pay for future expenses on your own.
Your car accident injury demand will consist of those damages a jury could award if your claim were to be litigated. Examples of such damages include:
(1) Medical and pharmaceutical expenses;
(2) Lost wages and/or loss of wage earning capacity (for a discussion of the difference, read our blog post on the topic);
(3) Physical, mental, and emotional pain and suffering; and
(4) Permanent disability and impairment.
If the insurer is willing to offer a fair amount for these elements of your damages, your case can usually be resolved without filing suit. If the insurance company refuses to “play ball” and offers an unreasonably low amount, you may be forced to file suit. The Morrisville auto accident attorneys of Maginnis Law can guide your case through the court system. In many cases, once suit is filed the insurer’s offer will increase. If not, your case can be tried and a jury of your peers will determine the amount to which you are entitled.
