There is no question that many drivers do their best to prevent car accidents, but unfortunately some people may still find themselves involved in a crash, either as a driver, passenger or pedestrian. When and if that accident happens, you should first ensure the safety of everyone involved. You should then contact the local police and report that an accident has occurred. Once you have done this, you should assess any damages and exchange information with the driver responsible for the accident.
Although it may seem obvious who should be held liable for a car accident, it is recommended that a person first consult with an experienced personal injury attorney. A Bridgeport car accident lawyer can guide you through the process of dealing with an insurance company as well as filing a claim for physical and emotional damages.
Dealing with an insurance company can be frustrating and time consuming. If you think the insurance company has your best interest in mind or is concerned about you being without a vehicle; your medical bills or lost wages, then you are sadly mistaken. Terms the insurance company lives by are “contest” and “delay.” Contest every case and delay every payment. That includes offering you less money than you are entitled to when you are finally offered a settlement amount. Ganim Injury Lawyers has the knowledge and experience to help you overcome the insurance company’s contest and delay tactics.
A local car crash attorney can help you make and process a claim. Attorney George W. Ganim Jr. can work with your doctor’s office in obtaining your medical records and submission of your bills to insurance. Accident lawyers are skilled negotiators in securing fair settlement amounts for injury victims. If the insurance company does not agree to pay a fair settlement, then your lawyer at Ganim can proceed to file a lawsuit in court and continue to fight for what is right for you.
Although most injury cases are settled even after a lawsuit has been filed, if a trial is necessary then you can count on Attorney George W. Ganim Jr. to be on your side. A trial is when your case is presented to either a jury or a judge (bench trial).
In a jury trial, the jury determines the facts (what happened) and what, if any damages should be awarded. A bench trial is when the judge determines the facts (what happened) and what, if any damages should be awarded.
