Will I have to go to court to win my Albuquerque vehicle collision case?
Many people are worried about going to court to obtain compensation. However, in most situations, the at-fault party’s insurance company will pay you a settlement without going to court. If you and the insurer can agree on a settlement amount, you needn’t ever set foot in an ABQ courtroom.
What types of damages can I be paid compensation for?
When you win a personal injury claim, typically you’ll be compensated for both your monetary and nonmonetary damages. Monetary damages are losses of a financial nature, like medical bills, property loss, lost wages, and the costs of physical therapy. Nonmonetary damages are calculated for things like the loss of life enjoyment, pain and suffering, permanent injury, and trauma.
What is the process of filing a personal injury claim for a car wreck?
The main steps are as follows: Investigate your car accident, gather evidence to prove fault and damages, put together a case, file claim paperwork, and negotiate compensation with an insurer.
What if I was partly to blame for the car crash that injured me?
You can still seek compensation, even if you were partly to blame for the auto accident. In ABQ, as long as you weren’t mostly to blame, then you can go after the other party for the role they played in the accident.
If the at-fault party’s auto insurer calls me, should I talk to them?
The safest thing to do is to let your car accident attorney deal with the insurer on your behalf. Insurance companies might try to use your words against you, and they often record phone conversations.
