Hiring a lawyer is an important decision if you have large medical bills, lost wages, or were injured due to negligence.
Accident.com connects you to a lawyer that makes sure you get paid everything you are entitled to. Your lawyer files your claim for you and then negotiates the amount of your settlement.
If the insurance company is believed to be acting in bad faith, your lawyer can request a trial and sue for a higher settlement.
Your lawyer will:
1) Request medical records for you.
2) Review police reports and medical charts.
3) Communicate back and forth with your insurance adjuster.
Accident.com lawyers do the heavy lifting, so you don’t have to.
People who hire attorneys statistically receive more money in their injury settlement. Even after paying the lawyer's contingency fee, people still walk away with more money than they probably would have received without an attorney.
You do not have to pay your attorney unless you win. When you win, your lawyer is paid a percentage of your final settlement.
This means the better you do, the better your lawyer does. It’s a win-win.
Bankruptcy, divorce, criminal charges, etc, can all affect your injury case. Your personal injury lawyer is familiar with different areas of law and can work with other attorneys if needed. Your Accident.com lawyer will work with your other lawyer (from other practice areas) to reach a solution in your best interest. A personal injury lawyer can also handle the insurance company's lawyers if your case goes past negotiations.
The suggested method to report a car accident in Minnesota is to call 911. Tell the dispatcher there was a crash and ask when a police officer can come to the scene. Before calling 911, you should check with your passengers and anyone you can easily see to determine whether an ambulance is also needed. If so, be sure to request an ambulance when talking with the 911 dispatcher. This gets everyone medical attention right away and keeps evidence clear about what actually happened. Minnesota accident lawyers can help ensure you have gathered the right information to get the assistance you need.
Car accident lawsuits are usually brought as negligence claims causing “injury to the person.” In this situation, the statute of limitations is usually six years, according to Minn. Stat. § 541.05, Subd. 1(5). Some car accident claims have shorter limitation periods, however. So, it's important to talk with a car accident lawyer in Minneapolis, MN, or in your area, as soon as you're safe and medically stable after a crash.
Car accident lawyers in MN take cases if they think the client has a strong claim and if they think they have a good chance to get a recovery for them. Lawyers aren't paid hourly, so they only get paid if they do get a recovery. That means they focus on what you need to prove in order to be successful in a personal injury claim. The attorney will focus on whether someone else failed to act in the way a reasonable person would have acted, whether that person’s failure caused your injury and how severe your injury is.
For the Accident.com founders, that question was: “Why is getting paid by insurance companies such a frustrating experience?" Frustrating is an understatement. Navigating the world of insurance is confusing, stressful and a step backward in time (hello, call centers). Even when they know they are covered, people know insurance companies make more money if they pay you less.
