However, Dallas car accident attorney Nick Feizy explains that generally the harder the impact of the collision is, the worst your injuries are and the higher your medical expenses are the more valuable your case is.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 15, 2015
As a Dallas personal injury attorney, Nick Feizy knows how stressful it can be to be involved in an accident. There are several things to deal with such as medical expenses, lost wages and property damage in addition to being compensated for pain and suffering.
The first thing to do immediately after an accident is to call the police and insist on the officer to prepare a police report. Make sure you take down all the information regarding the other driver like his or her full name, driver's license number, license plate number, make/model/color of vehicle and of course the auto insurance information. Then if you are injured, go to the hospital in an ambulance and get checked out. You should call an injury attorney as soon as possible to assist you with this matter. Once you are out of the hospital, if you are still injured you should seek further therapy usually by a chiropractor. At that point you and the chiropractor can decide if you need additional diagnostics and treatments such as an MRI or a visit to a specialist like an orthopedist for a checkup or to prescribe medication.
Meanwhile, you would be negotiating with the other driver's insurance company to pay for your property damage. You would take your car to have it appraised and then paid for. If you need a rental car you can ask for it.
Once you are done with all your medical treatments you would gather all your bills and records and submit a demand package to the insurance company and ask for a settlement amount. If you lost any time off of work and had a valid doctor note to miss work then you would negotiate to recover the amount you lost from not being able to work.
Typically within 30 days the insurance company will get back with you and if they have accepted liability they will make an offer to settle. If they don't get back to you then you must be persistent and keep following up with the insurance company. The value of your claim depends on the severity of your injuries, the amount of medical expenses, the impact of the collision, the adjuster and insurance company you are dealing with, etc. The bottom line is that there is no magic formula to value your case. However, Dallas car accident attorney Nick Feizy explains that generally the harder the impact of the collision is, the worst your injuries are and the higher your medical expenses are the more valuable your case is.
