When a motor vehicle accident results in injuries, anybody injured may wish to file a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver. The at-fault party is normally the one whose negligent or careless actions caused the accident. Victims could receive compensation for any damages their injuries caused, including medical bills and pain and suffering. An attorney could help an injured party with preparing and filing the claim and may be able to help get a fair settlement offer.
The injured parties could file their claims before the officers complete the investigation, but the police report about the accident could possibly help the attorney prove fault in court. In many cases, the liable party will have insurance coverage to pay for the damages. An attorney could negotiate with the insurance carrier on the injured party’s behalf and represent the party in court proceedings.
