aurora car accident lawyers
According to the Association for Safe International Road Travel, there are nearly 50 million people who are injured or disabled in car accidents every year. Furthermore, nearly 1.25 million people die in car crashes every year. Those are sobering facts, but if you or someone you know was injured in a car accident in Aurora, a car accident attorney may be able to help you.
When you’re injured in a car accident in Aurora, it’s important for you take the necessary steps to document the accident as soon as possible. If you have a camera and can record the events, that is great. If you had a camera and was recording everything leading up to the event, that is even better, and if you were fortunate enough to capture the entire car accident on camera, that will certainly come in handy later on.
However, if you don’t have any kind of recorded evidence, try to write down everything you can remember about the events leading up to the car accident, the accident itself and what happened afterwards. Get the names of anyone else involved as well as their addresses and insurance companies.
Seek Medical Attention
Oftentimes when there’s been a car accident, law enforcement attorneys will call an ambulance. Regardless of whether you believe you need treatment or not, allow the medical team to treat you. This will provide you with valuable documentation about your injuries that can be used later on when you’re ready to file a personal injury claim.
Do You Have a Claim?
You might be wondering whether or not you indeed have a valid personal injury claim. After you’ve been involved in a car accident in Aurora, an experienced attorney like the ones at Zayed Law Offices can assist you. We can evaluate all the circumstances surrounding your case to determine whether or not you meet the qualifications to file a personal injury claim.
Regardless of whether you are deemed partially at fault for the accident or not, you can sometimes receive personal injury compensation for the portion of the accident that is not deemed your fault. Our special team can determine how at fault each party involved was, and we can use that to determine how much compensation we believe you’re entitled to.
The Personal Injury Claim Process
When you decide that you want to go forward with a personal injury claim, we handle all the little details for you. We’ll gather all the evidence necessary to prove your claim. We’ll fill out all the paperwork and make sure that it’s appropriately filed with the court in the allotted time frames, and we’ll also negotiate on your behalf with the insurance companies.
Negotiating With Insurance Companies
Most of the time when people are involved in car accidents, it’s their insurance companies that will have to pay any compensation. Insurance companies usually don’t want to pay up. As such, they might try to send you a low-ball offer to start off with, and if you accept it, then you could be accepting way less than what you’re entitled to. You’ll want to make sure that you at least get enough compensation to cover any medical expenses you incurred as a result of the accident, but if you are permanently disabled or lost a bunch of wages due to having to take time off of work because of your injuries, then you could be entitled to your medical expenses and then some. You could also be entitled to more if you suffered any emotional, mental or psychological trauma that has significantly affected the quality of your life.
The attorneys at Zayed Law Offices are experienced at negotiating with insurance companies to get our clients the best settlements. We won’t accept that first low-ball offer that insurance companies send, and we’ll let them know upfront what we’re expecting for our clients and that we’re willing to fight aggressively for them in court if need be. We promise to be devoted in our representation of you and to always try to secure you the best settlement possible.
