Filing a Claim for Monetary Compensation in a Car Accident Case
The personal injury claims-filing process typically begins when the accident victim files a claim against the at-fault driver seeking monetary compensation and damages. The process starts when the accident victim or the accident victim’s attorney submits a demand package to the insurance company. This package contains information relating to the claim, including a copy of the police report, any photographs, medical records, medical bills, and sometimes a victim impact statement.
Once the insurance company reviews this documentation, the adjuster might make an offer to settle the matter. If the case cannot be settled favorably, the accident victim could file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver and pursue litigation in the Austin court system.
A knowledgeable Austin motor vehicle accident attorney could help you decide whether you should accept a particular settlement offer or file a lawsuit in your case.
In Austin motor vehicle accident cases, the injured accident victim has the burden of proof. If the accident victim can prove the elements of the case, then he or she might be eligible to recover damages. Those damages can include medical costs, lost earnings, and compensation for pain, suffering, and inconvenience. The skilled legal team at Terry & Kelly, PLLC, is ready to help you pursue the compensation you deserve.
