#2. Do I Have a Legal Claim?

The first thing that many people wonder when they are hurt in an accident is if they have a legal claim. It is often difficult to understand the specifics of a case and who might be at fault and whether a third-party acted inappropriately such that they will be held accountable, in full or in part, for the harm caused. Contact Karen for more information.

#3. Can I Handle The Case on My Own, Or Do I Need an Attorney?

Following an accident it is understandable for individuals to want to settle the matter quickly and move on with their lives as soon as possible. As a result, some may be tempted to try to take care of all issues—including legal issues—without getting professional representation. Let Karen guide and support you through the complex issues of state and federal law, and give you every advantage to win your case.

#4 Should I Accept the Insurance Company Settlement?

It cannot be reiterated enough that insurance companies are in the business of minimizing payouts to maximize company profits. No matter how nice the insurance adjuster seems or how many details they give you regarding your compensation, the adjuster’s goal is to pay you as little as possible. In fact, the adjuster is usually rewarded for resolving claims for as little as possible and as quickly as possible.

#5 What Is my Case Worth?

It is impossible to make generalizations about the value of any case without knowing the details of the harm caused and the manner it was caused. One of the most important jobs that your attorney will conduct is leaving no stone unturned when it comes to detailing all possible losses that will translate into a legal recovery. The law allows recovery for a wide range of situations, many of which may not be readily apparent to the injured party. This includes past medical bills, future medical and rehabilitation costs, therapy, lost past wages, lost future income, pain and suffering, and more.

#6 What to do after a car accident?

When a motor vehicle accident occurs it is easy to become disoriented, shaken, and confused. However, in the aftermath of an accident it is important to obtain crucial information. A helpful way to remind yourself what to do after a car accident is to keep a checklist of phone numbers to call and questions to ask along with your insurance information in your glove compartment or center console.

#7 How do I handle insurance adjusters?

When accidents occur, it is common for an insurance company to ask you to make a recorded statement with an insurance adjuster. It is never wise to do so without having consulted your attorney first.
