6 Common Car Accident Questions

Car accidents can leave you with a lot of questions. Chances are you have at least one of these six common car accident questions. If you have any other questions or need help pursuing your claim, set up a consultation at Brauns Law, PC in Gwinnett County.

1)  How do I get medical treatment and my medical bills paid? 

If you have health insurance, you can use that to pay medical bills. You could also use your medical payments coverage, if you have it on your policy. David Brauns and the Brauns Law team can also get doctors to treat you on an IOU and explore other options to pay for doctors after your car accident.

2)  How do I get a rental car? 

The wreck was not your fault and you do not understand why they cannot put you in a rental right away. What could be taking so long for the other driver's insurance company to get their act in gear? 

The Brauns Law team will arrange your rental car for you. We know of no other firm in Gwinnett County who handles all aspects of your claim.

3)  Whose insurance company (yours or theirs) is supposed to be doing what? 

Each person involved in an accident should notify his insurance company and file a claim. Following this, the insurance companies will investigate the accident. If the other driver is at fault, you can file a claim against his liability insurance.

You may get a call from the other person’s insurance asking for a recorded statement, but you can decline to give a statement until you have spoken with a lawyer.

4)  Is the insurance company telling me the whole truth?

Maybe you feel like you are not getting straight answers from adjusters and/or think they are taking advantage of you.

It is possible that insurance adjusters are not telling you the whole story. Their job is to pay you as little as possible, so there is a good chance they are omitting certain details. David Brauns once worked for an insurance company and can help you handle any of their tricks.

5)  Who is going to pay for my lost income from missing work?

After an accident, you may have to take time off work because of your injuries. To get back that money, file a claim for lost income. If the other driver caused the accident, you can include your lost income damages in your liability claim.

6)  How do I know I am going to get a fair offer from the insurance company? 

Talk to us about your case and its value, especially if you get an offer from an insurance company. No one knows your case's true value until you go through medical treatment and see how you end up physically, emotionally, and financially.

Never, ever agree to an insurance company's first offer. Work with Brauns Law to completely investigate your claim and be patient to evaluate its true value.

Let Us Help You Get the Settlement You Deserve

Are you starting to understand the lengths insurance companies go to make your claim worse, not better? To top it all off, they may be telling you that you do not need a lawyer and they will take care of everything. This is the first part of what attorneys call the "delay and deny" strategy. First, insurance companies delay and then they deny you certain kinds of compensation because of the delay.
