Being involved in an auto-mobile accident can be a very frustrating process. One moment you are just living your life. Before you know it, you are on the side of the road with a car that has been wrecked and you have no idea where to start. The first thing that you want to do is to get yourself to a doctor. Maybe you have serious injuries. Maybe you don’t. Either way, you need to be looked over by a medical professional. If you do have serious injuries, someone is going to have to pay for them. You should never have to pay for these injuries out of your own pocket.
Now, you need to consider the damages to your car. If your car can be fixed, take it to a few different body shops for estimates. Talk with the body shop and find out whether or not your car can be fixed. If it can be fixed, get an estimate in writing. This way, you can have something to give to your Henderson, Nevada Auto Injury Attorney. This will help him to understand how much money to ask for in your lawsuit. If for some reason, your car cannot be fixed, then the insurance company owes you a check. It will be up to you to determine what you will do with this money. Maybe you would like to use it to replace your car. Maybe you would like to use it for a down payment on something a little newer. Whenever you decide to do is up to you.
Now, you need to think about the other lawyers and the insurance company. They are going to work hard to convince you that you don’t deserve a settlement. If they try to contact you and you feel overwhelmed by their actions, you can always refer them to your attorney. Your attorney knows what to say to these people to convince them to back off. When you end up going to court, the judge will be the one to have the final say as to whether or not you deserve a settlement.
