An auto collision can be an unexpected burden that drains your time, energy, and bank account. In the stressful aftermath, the last thing you need are issues with your insurance company.
Kevin Kurgis is a highly experienced auto accident attorney in Columbus, Ohio who understands the anxiety and hardship an auto collision can cause. His law offices are proud to fight on your behalf, ensuring that you get the compensation to which you are entitled.
Why You Should Get an Accident Lawyer
Even if you are not at fault, hiring a lawyer is a smart move. Insurance companies typically pay as little as possible on a claim. When recovering from injuries, dealing with the financial fallout of repairs, or grieving the loss of a loved one, they do not assist much to make the process much easier financially.
The right lawyer should not only represent you in court but guide you through the complicated legal process as well as dealing with insurance companies. We know that not everyone has the background to understand the minutiae of such proceedings. We consider it part of that job to keep you informed of developments in your case and to do so in a way that is both plain and compassionate. It is not a legal case in our eyes, it is your life, and we want to help you rebuild it as quickly and efficiently as possible.
What Types of Cases We Handle
Our law firm handles a wide variety of cases related to auto accidents, such as:
• Physical injury
• Psychological injury
Collisions can result in many different needs for clients, including physical therapy and disability payments. Even if you’re not injured, you may still have a case if the other driver is at fault due to impaired driving, speeding or violating other traffic laws.
Our lawyers have specific experience with:
- Rollover, rear-end, and intersection collisions, crashes, and accidents
- Hit-and-run accidents
- Uninsured and underinsured drivers
- Wrongful death suits
- Alcohol and drug-related accidents
- And more
We can help you document your injuries and get the medical attention you deserve.
How Much Compensation You Can Receive
Your total compensation may vary by case and be influenced by the circumstances of the accident. However, due to the profit-focused nature of insurance companies, you are more likely to receive a higher settlement with the help of a lawyer than if you were to attempt doing so without one.
To make sure you get the maximum amount you are due, it is imperative that you file a claim and seek legal representation as soon as possible. There is a statute of limitations on these types of lawsuits; therefore, waiting too long can cause the inability to file one at all.
What You Should Do After an Accident
The aftermath of a collision can be jarring, and it is easy to forget or miss important things in the chaos. That is why it is critical to have a solid idea of the next steps to prepare in case of such an event.
Most importantly, you should gather as much information as possible, including:
• Other driver’s insurance and personal information
• Police report if one has been filed
• Witness names and contact information
All of this can help us build a strong case by establishing facts surrounding the collision.
You should also be careful what you say to any insurance representatives. We advise waiting to give a statement until you have proper representation, as the insurance company may use your words against you. You should also hold off on signing any releases until we can review them.
