Today, everybody owns and operates a motor vehicle. So, the chances of being involved in an accident are more likely than you might hope.
No matter the size of the vehicle, it travels down the road with a significant amount of force. When that force strikes another vehicle, injury often occurs. This is when hiring an experienced law firm is the most important decision you can make. Hastings & Hastings can help you navigate through the treacherous waters of dealing with the insurance company and the tactics they may utilize to try to minimize the value of the motor vehicle accident, as well as your injuries.
While a personal injury settlement is separate than a property damage settlement (fixing your car), they are very much related. Getting a proper estimate and returning your vehicle to a pre-accident state is essential to demonstrate how much true damage was done to a vehicle. This also aids in showing how you were injured. Insurance companies often “low ball” a client’s property damage in an effort to try to minimize and even eliminate a client’s injury claim. This is why, at Hastings & Hastings, we always recommend that you speak to an attorney before dealing with the insurance company, even if your dealings are only related to the vehicle damage.
At Hastings & Hastings we understand that car accidents can cause all types of injuries. These injuries can range from neck and back pain, to much more severe and permanent injuries, or in the worst case — a fatality. Hastings & Hastings offers over 150 years of combined legal experience in handling all types of accident injuries and we urge you to call now to schedule an appointment to meet with an attorney, not a paralegal.
