What Are My Options After an Auto Accident
Hi, welcome back to our website. We thank you for taking the time to read our recent law firm article. While all of us are dealing with the current Coronavirus crisis, we wanted to take a moment to discuss topics surrounding injury law. One of the common questions we get is “what are my options after an auto accident”. Today, we’re going to discuss some options car crash victims can explore. As always, the opinions published are just that, opinions. Our website and articles do not provide legal advice.
We’ve recently published a series of articles and videos where we discuss topics such as filing an online car crash claim, and what injury victims can do if they need to talk to an attorney during the social distancing lockdowns throughout the state of Indiana. Please take a look at today’s video and article about your options after suffering an auto accident injury.

You Have Rights After Suffering an Auto Accident Injury
Our law firm has been helping accident victims for over 22 years. Now, throughout our tenured careers, our Indianapolis injury lawyers have handled all types of cases. From commercial trucking and medical malpractice claims to traumatic brain injury and wrongful death lawsuits, we believe we’ve seen it all. However, the most common type of injury case we receive stems from vehicle-related crashes. Yes, you have rights after suffering an auto accident injury. Unfortunately, we believe insurance companies do a poor job of helping you understand those rights.
Why is that? What would make an insurance company not want to help an injury victim? Well, contrary to what you may believe, and contrary to how insurance companies sell us, they don’t care. In our opinion, insurance firms are big financial institutions. That means they care about profits, instead of people. So, how do you protect yourself and your rights after an injury? Let’s discuss further.
Your Right to Understand Insurance Companies Injury Guidelines
Insurance companies may use “graded scales”, or guidelines, to determine the value of your injury claim. Unfortnelty, in our opinion, they don’t do a solid job of explaining this to you. See, insurance companies hire very good contract lawyers. That means the verbiage is confusing and is most likely written to protect the wallet of the insurance company. However, you have a right to understand their guidelines. We can help. Our Indianapolis car accident lawyers will help explain the legal details of the policy, its limits, and what you may be able to win.
You Have the Right to Not Accept an Insurance Companies Financial Offer
One thing that really upsets us as attorneys is when insurance companies provide “low-ball offers” to pressure an injury victim. Insurance companies hire adjusters and underwriters. Essentially, insurance companies weight out what is known as opportunity cost. What this means is that an insurance company may decide to pay you, or fight your claim, whichever costs them less. Sometimes, if they believe you’re hurting for money, they may offer you a very low dollar amount, hoping to push you to settle. You have the right to deny their offer.
We believe that retaining the services of a skilled injury attorney can help with getting an insurance company to the table. Our job is to fight to protect your financial rights. Guess what, we’ve been doing this for over 22 years, and we’ve helped our clients win tens of millions of dollars. Click here to view some of our case victories.
You Have the Right to Hire an Attorney to Represent Your Injury Claim
Most of all, you have the right to hire an attorney to represent your injury claim. Look at it this way, when you try to deal with an insurance company on your own, you’re short-handed. They hire and employ tough injury attorneys, adjusters, investigators, and underwriters who are all working to protect the insurance company. Why would you not want someone on your side to protect you? Hiring an injury attorney may be your best bet in getting paid. Guess what? We charge NO money upfront. In fact, we don’t get paid unless you get paid first.
