Whenever a person is involved in a car accident, they may think that they can handle the insurance claim by themselves. They are usually contacted by an insurance adjuster who is extremely friendly and eager to settle the car wreck matter as quickly as possible. Sometimes people handle their own automobile accident claim and settle the personal injury and property damage claim only to find out that they need additional medical treatment or that their injury did not resolve itself as anticipated, or that they did not know or forgot about certain losses or expenses. After the car wreck claim is settled, it is too late to ask an insurance adjuster for additional money for your Automobile Accident and Personal Injury claim. When you sign you are done.
Car accident attorneys assist people in recovering all possible damages and reimbursements to which they may be entitled. Many times, people do overlook lost wages, mileage or the complete set of future medical bills when settling their case. In automobile accidents, the first step to recovery is establishing liability. Many times, the insurance company will accept complete liability. There are other times where insurance companies will only accept a portion of liability related to the car wreck and even other times where they deny liability automobile accident. The general rule in Oklahoma is that if you are more than 50% at fault for an accident, then you will be barred from recovering anything from the other party. Once liability is established, the discussion on damages begins.
Many people are familiar with the standard damages designated as "medical bills" and "pain and suffering." However, when resolving their own Car Accident claim, they fail to recover for all their damages and reimbursements. When using an attorney, a person ensures that they receive all possible damages and reimbursement for their claim. They can also be sure to recover from all possible sources to obtain the most for their damages.
