Will I have a car accident case trial?
People who’ve been in a car crash often ask, “Will my case have to go to trial?” Because they don’t want to be involved in that. Initially, it’s very difficult to tell somebody if their specific case will go to trial. We are able to resolve most of our cases without going to trial because we get a fair resolution of them. If we can’t get a fair resolution, some cases have to go to trial. If we do have to take a case to trial, we’re going to be prepared for trial, and we’re going to make sure that you’re prepared as well so that there won’t be anything to worry about.
A large part of getting the fullest amount of compensation is avoiding getting blamed for the accident. By hiring an attorney early on, they will make sure you are protected from the bullying tactics of the insurance company. In Arizona, if you get blamed for the accident, you can still receive compensation, but it will be reduced by the percent of fault you share. Fortunately, you won’t be barred unless you were the sole cause of the accident, but that rarely happens. We will make sure we advocate for the best amount of compensation possible.
To have a successful claim, you should collect evidence at the scene of the accident. If you are too injured to do it yourself, you can call on someone to come do it for you. You want to get photos and videos of all vehicles involved in the accident and any debris or tire marks on the road. Anything that looks like it is important to the accident should be recorded. You also should talk to the witnesses and get their contact information. An important tip to remember is not telling anyone it was your fault. You might think it was, but later find out it wasn’t. For now, don’t talk about who caused the accident. Let your attorney handle that later.
The compensation on the line includes all of your medical bills related to your car accident, the cost of the ambulance ride if you needed one, your pain and suffering, medication costs, and in some cases, punitive damages if there was gross negligence involved in the car crash. We want you to receive this compensation in the fullest amounts.
