Concluding the three-part blog Car Accident Lawsuit FAQs, the following presents some more commonly asked questions that injured people have after they have been involved in car accidents. If you have additional questions or would like more specific information regarding your rights and case, don’t hesitate to contact the Littleton car accident attorneys at the Law Office of Mike Hulen, PC.
Q: How do I prove that another driver caused the accident?
A: Depending on the circumstances associated with a car accident case, there may be a number of different types of evidence that can be helpful in proving that another motorist was negligent. Some of this evidence may include (but is not limited to):
- Police reports for the accident
- Witness statements
- Photographs of the accident
- Doctors’ reports and medical bills associated with car accident injuries
- Expert witness testimony
- Footage from nearby surveillance cameras.
Q: Should I just accept an insurer’s settlement offer instead of waiting for compensation from a car accident lawsuit?
A: The best move for people injured in car accidents will depend on the circumstances of their case; however, in general, it’s NOT a good idea to simply accept the first offer you get from an insurance company. This is because insurers often offer low-ball settlements hoping that injured people are desperate enough for money (or uninformed enough about their actual entitlements) to accept these lower offers. Being too hasty to accept offers from insurers can, consequently, cost you thousands of dollars in lost compensation.
If you have been offered a settlement by an insurance company, the best thing you can do is to talk to an attorney to learn more about your potential entitlements.
