Did a car accident curb your Thanksgiving holiday?

Monday December 1, 2014

This Thanksgiving, 46.3 million Americans were expected to travel 50 miles or more, according to AAA, which projected the holiday to see the most travel since 2007.

Unfortunately, all of that holiday travel also results in additional car accidents. If you were involved in a minor fender bender or a serious car wreck over the Thanksgiving holiday, you might be wondering what to do next.

Chances are you exchanged insurance information with the other driver and notified your own insurance provider, but in order to make sure you get the compensation you are entitled to, it’s important to also talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer.

You have probably already come to this conclusion on your own, but insurance companies have their own best interests in mind — even your own insurance company. They want to pay out as little as possible and often tell their own customers that they are entitled to less than they actually are.

That’s why it’s so important to talk to a personal injury lawyer before accepting a settlement offer. When you work with a personal injury lawyer, you can rest assured that your rights will be protected no matter if you were catastrophically injured or only suffered property damage.

For example, if you were injured by a negligent driver, you might not only be entitled to compensation for medical bills and property damage, you may also be entitled to compensation for lost wages and the physical and emotional harm you sustained.

Being involved in a car accident that wasn’t your fault is inconvenient at best and life-shattering at worst. Our firm assists clients at both ends of the spectrum and every step in between.
