Car accidents are an unfortunate reality. Even the most cautious of drivers may find themselves suffering an injury due to another driver’s recklessness or negligence. If you were injured in an Oregon or Washington car accident, you might be entitled to compensation. It’s important to take action by contacting an experienced automobile accident law firm promptly to ensure your rights are protected. The dedicated legal team at Zbinden & Curtis Attorneys At Law has successfully represented people injured in all types of traffic accidents, including rear-end accidents, hit-and-run accidents, bicycle accidents, and more.
Determining the Worth of Your Auto Accident Claim
Every car accident is unique. Monetary compensation for your injuries may cover your medical expenses, cost of future medical treatment, compensation for lost wages, loss of future earning capacity, and pain and suffering. Sometimes punitive damages are awarded that are meant to punish drivers who acted with gross negligence. Often, insurance companies for the drivers involved in a car accident decide the value of an injury claim. As a result, the at-fault driver’s insurance company is often the first to determine how much your case is worth. But there can often be disputes between how much the other driver’s insurance company says your accident claim is worth and the claim’s actual value. This is where your attorney can step in and make a case for the actual value of your accident claim. Your lawyer can also file a lawsuit on your behalf and take your case to court, where a jury can decide how much your case is worth.
