Should I get a personal injury lawyer after a vehicle accident? Insurance companies are not on your side: their main objective in everything they do is profit. That’s why it is imperative you hire a personal injury lawyer to make sure you have an advocate with your best interests as top priority and up-to-the-minute expertise in the relevant areas of motor vehicle injury law, to ensure you are treated fairly and get maximum compensation.

Can I make a claim if I was a passenger in a car crash? Yes, you can, even if the driver of your vehicle is at fault. You can also make a claim if you were injured as the passenger in an accident involving a public vehicle, like a bus, train or commercial aircraft, or in a hired vehicle, like an Uber or taxi. I was a passenger injured in a car accident. What should I do?

If I was a cyclist or pedestrian hit by a vehicle, do I have a claim? You not only will have a personal injury claim if you were hit by a car, truck or other motor vehicle, but you will likely be entitled to accident benefits that will cover treatment costs to help you get healthy again. What to do if you are a cyclist that gets hit by a car?

Will my personal injury claim be capped? The Soft Tissue Injury Cap limits the amount of compensation an injured person can get after a car accident. However, your motor vehicle accident lawyer knows that there are many reasons why your claim should not be limited under the cap, even if your insurance company tries to convince you it is. What is the soft tissue injury cap and how will it affect my personal injury claim?

Should I provide a statement to the insurance company? You should provide information about your motor vehicle accident and your injuries to your insurance company. It is best to see a lawyer as soon as possible after a car crash or other accident so they can guide you through the process. There are many tactics insurance companies can use to minimize your claim, and an experienced motor vehicle accident lawyer can help you avoid the many pitfalls. What NOT to post on social media after a car accident.
