What To Do After A Car Accident

If you’ve been involved in a wreck:

It’s possible to handle your accident claim without the help of an attorney. If you’re unsure whether you need an attorney, read ahead to see our 7 red flags that indicate it’s time to hire an attorney. If none of those red flags appear, then we recommend calling the at-fault insurance company to open your accident claim.

Once you’ve opened your accident claim with the at-fault insurance, you’ll want to be aware of the following two tactics that insurance may use to minimize your claim.

There are 2 common tactics that an insurance adjuster will use to try and settle your claim at a lower value:

  1. They’ll try and settle your claim immediately, or…
  2. They’ll delay settling your claim as long as possible

First, it’s important to know that both tactics are very common. Many insurance companies use these tactics!

What If Insurance Tries Settling My Claim Immediately

Adjusters offer a settlement within the first few phone calls to car accident victims for one simple reason: it saves the insurance company time and money. A quick resolution may seem appealing at first, but you shouldn’t take the bait: accepting this initial settlement may cost you dearly. In the first days or weeks after a car wreck, you can’t yet know what your claim is really worth.

Once you agree to a car accident settlement, it’s game over. You cannot negotiate for another settlement afterward. That’s why a personal injury attorney will not begin negotiations until you’ve been released by a doctor and have all the data on property damage, lost wages, and more. You need to do the same when handling your own claim. You deserve fair compensation for the loss and injuries you’ve endured.

Before you speak with an insurance adjuster, remember these five things:

  1. Remain Calm
  2. Ask for the adjuster’s information
  3. Avoid sharing too much information about yourself.
  4. Decline to give detailed accident or injury information.
  5. Be firm that you’re waiting to settle until you’re ready.

What If Insurance Delays Settling My Claim?

On the other hand, delaying your claim’s settlement is a tactic designed to frustrate you. The phrase “let’s just get this over with” typically doesn’t translate to maximum value for your claim. And insurance adjusters know this!

If an insurance company is not answering your calls, we have 4 tips:

  • Be patient, but persistent.
  • Try another form of communication, such as email or text.
  • Ask to speak with a supervisor.
  • Hire a lawyer.

Do I Need a Lawyer If I’ve Been in a Wreck?

1. Claim Denied

If the insurance company has denied your claim or their offer is lower than the cost of your damages.

2. Serious Injury

If you have a serious injury that needs ongoing treatment with significant medical bills. 

3. At-Fault’s Story Changes

If the at-fault driver has changed their story and is now denying fault.  

4. Pre-Existing Injuries

If you have pre-existing injuries. Insurance may use a pre-existing injury as leverage to lower your settlement.  

5. Unfairly Treated

If you’re unsure whether you’re being treated fairly by insurance, or you simply aren’t clear on your legal rights in Arkansas.

6. More Than a Year

If it’s been more than a year since your accident.

7. Coverage Questioned

If insurance coverage is being questioned. An attorney will pursue every avenue of compensation available.

Common Injuries After an Auto Accident

Whiplash

…is one of the most common injuries resulting from a car accident, happening most often in rear-end collisions. Whiplash occurs when your head and neck are suddenly jerked back and forth (like the cracking of a whip…hence the name), and symptoms include neck pain, stiffness, and headaches. Most symptoms resolve over time, but they may require medication or therapy. Moreover, a smaller number will suffer from chronic neck problems and pain afterward. Other neck injuries include disc injury and cervical radiculopathy (irritated nerves).

Back Injuries

Your spine is divided into three different sections: cervical, thoracic, and lumbar vertebrae. With the discs, muscles, tendons, and nerves in your spinal area, back injuries are common, but also very painful. In a car wreck, back injuries can range from strained muscles or dislocated discs to serious spinal cord trauma. In many cases, chiropractic work or physical therapy can relieve pain and help realign your spine, but some injuries may require surgery to restore mobility. Never ignore back pain after being in a crash.

Concussions

…are usually caused when your head strikes a part of the car, such as the steering wheel or window, giving your brain a “jolt” that can actually cause it to move inside your skull. A concussion is classified as a mild traumatic brain injury, and if you or someone you love has been involved in a car wreck, we’d advise you to watch for signs of a concussion: confusion, slurred speech, nausea or vomiting, headaches, blurred vision, or memory loss.

Leg and Knee Injuries

Most people think of upper body injuries when discussing car wrecks, but your legs and knees are also at risk. These injuries usually result when a passenger hits their knees or legs on the dashboard, or when part of the car is smashed inward. The knee area, with its ligaments and tendons, is especially prone to injury. Other possible injuries include fractures, broken bones, or cuts and bruises.

What Types of Compensation Am I Eligible to Receive?

In terms of the types of claims you might open after an accident, you have many options.

In addition to property damage and medical bills, you also have the right to be compensated for pain and suffering, mental anguish, lost wages, lost profits, and the injury itself. Additionally, some injuries are permanent in nature.

Future damages can also be proven and claimed.

Will My Case Go to Litigation?

Typically, these claims are settled outside of court without having to file a lawsuit. Attorneys can help you position your claim to settle outside of court while preparing to go to court if necessary.

Your attorney will discuss the various types of compensation you’ll be able to seek. They’ll ask questions, and make sure that you receive full compensation for your damages.

How Much Is My Car Accident Claim Worth?

There’s no sure-fire system for evaluating the exact amount of what your case is worth. However, our team of attorneys has more than 275 years of combined legal experience. We understand the process and know how to maximize your case. And we’ll be honest and upfront about what we can do for you.
