What types of issues could I face in making a claim for my injuries from a car accident?

The primary issue you’ll likely face is that the insurance company – even “your” insurance company – will be primarily interested in paying you as little money as possible. Unless you know how much money to seek in a claim and how to show that you deserve it, you are unlikely to obtain the settlement you deserve.

Three categories of issues that typically come up in a tort claim after a car crash include:

  • Liability – Who is at fault and to what extent.
  • Insurance coverage – What the insurance company will pay for after an accident.
  • Damages – Injuries or losses caused by the accident.

It can be a costly mistake not to identify all possible insurance coverage or to fail to correctly calculate your damages. The Law Offices of Scott C. Gottlieb & Associates, LLP, can assist you in finding all available insurance policies and other assets to help pay your claim.
