Maybe You Can Settle Your Accident Claim Without a Lawyer...

If your auto accident was relatively mild, like a fender bender at a stop sign, you might be able to settle your accident claim on your own.

If the other driver admits fault, you aren’t significantly injured, or don't miss substantial time from work, you might be able to reach a settlement on your own.

But, there is no such thing as an “open and shut” case.

Your insurance company knows that there is a statute of limitations with lawsuits. If the insurance company starts delaying or denying your claim, you should contact an accident attorney ASAP.

Before you reach out to your claims adjuster to begin settlement negotiations, you should ensure all of your paperwork is in order.

This includes copies of your medical records, statements from your employer regarding lost wages, and any info you have from eyewitnesses.

You should also have a copy of the official police report and info regarding relevant insurance policies.

You also shouldn’t make a recorded statement, especially without a car accident attorney present.

Never accept the first offer you are given. Your insurance company will never open with their best offer.

Things can get complicated pretty quickly. That’s why you should at least consult with an attorney after an accident.
