Q: What if the accident was partially my fault?
A: Even if you think you might be to blame, it is important to first talk it over with an experienced attorney. We can gather the necessary evidence in order to determine what happened and who can be held responsible.
Q: Is it OK to talk to the other driver’s insurance company?
A: Never talk to the other party’s insurance company without first consulting an attorney. Their goal is to close cases and give out the smallest settlement. If you talk about your case, you could provide them with information that they can use against you.
Q: The other driver doesn’t have insurance. What does this mean for me?
A: In situations where the other driver doesn’t have car insurance or is underinsured, your own insurance might be able to cover your costs. Some policies contain uninsured/underinsured coverage. We can help you determine what the options are.
Q: Who pays for my medical expenses until my case is resolved?
A: Our goal is to hold the negligent party accountable. This includes getting you compensation for your doctor’s visits. However, in the meantime, you are responsible for payment. We can analyze your insurance policy and discuss all possible solutions.
