Show Notes

  • Compensation in an at-fault accident: Passengers involved in a car accident are also owed compensation if injured in a car accident. This can mean in some situations, claiming benefits from the driver of their own car, if deemed at fault. Determining who is at fault in a car accident can be complicated and legal advice from a personal injury lawyer can be vital.
  • Seeking medical attention after an accident: It is normal and common for individuals to experience debilitating symptoms after a car accident after time has passed. It is important to seek immediate medical attention after a car accident occurs. Medical conditions, such as chronic pain, can develop over time. A doctor will be the ultimate arbitrator of an individual’s condition and ability to work and necessary treatment.
  • Multiple accidents and several injuries: In some circumstances, multiple insurance companies can argue they are not liable for benefits. Some accidents can lead to multiple insurer involvement. It is important to determine when the injuries occurred in order to claim benefits from the appropriate party.
  • No compensation after a car accident: Injured parties should not assume that the insurance adjuster is always right. Individuals pushed into oncoming traffic would rarely be considered at fault in a car accident. Insurers are aware of the vulnerable position many individuals are in and can take advantage of the situation. Hiring a personal injury lawyer can ensure the proper record of events is looked at closely by all parties involved.
