Your Options After a Car Accident

Car accidents that kill, injure and cause property damage happen more frequently than we realize. If you or someone you love has been involved in an accident, it is important that you seek legal counsel. Merritt Webb has experience in dealing with car accident cases, and can help restore your peace of mind. We know that car accidents can be troubling, which is what makes it so important to have excellent legal representation.

If you are involved in an accident, be sure to exchange information with everyone involved.  Be sure to obtain the following:

  • The name, address, and phone number of all involved parties
  • Driver’s license numbers and license plate numbers of all involved parties
  • Insurance companies of all drivers involved
  • Years, models and makes of all cars involved
  • Registered owners of all cars

Once you have obtained this information, it’s time for you to get a legal team involved.  Merritt Webb strives to be the best in helping you regain what you’ve lost in a car accident.  We know that it is a traumatic time for everyone involved and regaining what you’ve lost can be a challenge.  The insurance company of the person who is at fault will not want to pay you what you are owed, and will not do so unless they are forced into it.  Do not speak with anyone about the car accident, except for the police.  Do not admit fault or blame another party, as this can be used against you later in court.

Often, it requires more than basic legal skills to obtain fair compensation for the victim of a car accident.  Our expert team of attorneys knows the ins and outs of accident analysis that might slip past your average lawyer or paralegal.  These include:

  • Liability issues: Ask yourself, “Who caused this car accident?” A police officer’s account is inadmissible, which is where your attorney can help. It is our job to prove fault using witnesses, photographs of the scene, and expert testimony.
  • Potential damages: There are a large number of possible monetary damages that may occur when you are involved in a car accident. Hiring an attorney helps you pinpoint the value of your case.
  • Insurance complications: State law dictates that each car must be insured by its owner to cover any injury that may occur in the future. It is incredibly likely that you will need a team of competent attorneys to guide you through your state’s insurance laws to ensure that you get the money owed to you from the car accident.  You’ll need a team that knows how to access other forms of insurance, such as insurance coverage for the uninsured parties, to ensure that all damages and costs are covered.
  • Costs and expenses: When you’ve been in a car accident, the claims process can be daunting and expensive for everyone involved, even the injured party. There may be costs for doctors and other experts that are necessary in your case’s proceedings.  In many instances, Merritt Webb will pay these fees, so long as they are reimbursable from the settlement of judgment with the insurance company.

If you’ve been hurt in a car accident, Merritt Webb can help! We have an incredible team that will not stop until justice has been served. If you have been involved in a car accident, you have to be sure that you are getting the best legal representation.  Otherwise, you may be blindsided and receive less, or none, of what is owed to you.
