It may be a big mistake to handle your own claim
Motor vehicle accident claims can involve very complex situations. Applying traffic laws and insurance regulations to your situation requires the experience of an injury specialist, not someone who does personal injury part-time. The Montag Law Office handles exclusively motor vehicle accident injury claims. We have the experience and expertise needed to get you the compensation you deserve. Insurance companies save money by paying as little money as possible for claims. People who try to make claims by themselves are likely to be taken advantage of. The Montag Law Office is “Dedicated to Helping Injured People”. Our practice specializes in handling all types of motor vehicle accident injury claims.
How much is your claim worth?
After you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident you deserve to get full compensation for your car and your medical expenses as well as compensation for your lost wages and your pain and suffering. You may have future medical expenses, future lost income, and continuing pain and suffering. As an injury victim, you will never see eye-to-eye with an insurance company about the value of your claim. The insurance company can always be counted on to undervalue your claim. Part of my job as an injury lawyer is to be thorough and present your claim in the best possible way to maximize its’ value and get you the most compensation possible. Even if you make a successful injury claim, a car accident is a hard way to make money. You need to do as well as possible and an experienced lawyer like Steven Montag can help make the most of your claim.
Who Caused the Accident?
Disputes about liability often occur when you would not expect them. Police reports help to commit to a story and sort out what happened but accidents can bring out the worst in people. The at-fault driver may not want to take responsibility for what they have done. Their stories often change when they talk to insurance adjusters after they have had more time to think about how they can avoid blame. At the Montag Law Office, we start a thorough investigation by carefully reviewing the police report. We contact all drivers and witnesses to the accident and get their statements. Even if an at-fault driver lies like a rug and fails to take responsibility for what he or she has done, third-party witnesses can make or break the case. It is also possible to have accident reconstruction specialists use information such as the damage to the vehicles and information from newer car computers to prove liability even without a witness.
Was there insurance covering your loss?
One of the first things that need to be done is to identify all of the sources of insurance that apply to your accident. Even if you have a very clear fault and you get a large judgment against them in court it does not necessarily mean they will have the money to pay for your damages. Most drivers do not have significant assets to pay a judgment. Their insurance is usually the main asset that most drivers have to pay damages. There are often several insurance policies that could apply depending on the vehicles and drivers involved in the accident. There may also be other policies such as an umbrella policy or your own health insurance or even a home owner’s policy that could apply. Determining liability coverage and claim value requires the experience of a skilled injury lawyer who specializes in motor vehicle accident injury claims.
