We got a call yesterday from a man who got into an accident. Despite the fact that he was 100% not guilt, when he called the insurance company to open a claim, they recorded the accident as 15% guilty. So he called us for help asking what he can do in such situation?
Wanted to share one of the most frequently asked questions in regards to Hit-n-Run Accidents.
Many automobile accidents are low impact, or under 10 miles per hour and cause only minor property damage. In a sizable number of these cases, however, the occupants may complain of various injuries from neck and back strains to more serious spinal or joint problems. Most of these victims face considerable opposition to their injury claims from skeptical insurance adjusters and defense attorneys.
Time is of the essence in IMMEDIATELY consulting a lawyer. There are many insurance companies who are training their employees to immediately contact an injured person with hopes that the can get that injured person to sign off on their claims before that person has a chance to learn the true severity of their injuries or the full extent of their possible claims.
Over the last decade, new cars have gotten electronic stability control systems to prevent skids, rearview cameras to prevent fender benders and more airbags to protect occupants in collisions. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent on campaigns to remind the public of the dangers of drunken driving, failing to buckle up and texting while on the go.
