Take advantage of a consultation with a Jonesboro car accident attorney. Asking some key questions helps you better understand the car accident claim process.
What should I say to the insurance company?
Dealing with the insurance company during the claims process can be complicated. Your attorney may advise you to avoid speaking to an adjuster and to allow him or her to act as your point of contact. This ensures that you do not make any mistakes when dealing with the insurance adjuster that can come back to hurt your case.
Should I settle my car accident claim?
If the insurance company has already offered you a settlement for your accident, first speak to an attorney to determine if the settlement is fair, or if the offer is too low to account for your financial losses. Your attorney can evaluate the costs you have incurred as a result of the accident and calculate your loss of earnings in order to negotiate with the insurance company for a fair settlement.
When you accept a settlement, there may be a clause that prohibits you from taking legal action in the future. Discussing your options with an attorney first may help you in the long run no matter how tempting it may be to take the initial offer.
