The DIY Insurance Claim: Filing Against the Other Party After a Car Wreck

The DIY Insurance Claim: Filing Against the Other Party After a Car Wreck

The roads and highways of the US today are more complex than ever and continuing to grow in that direction. This is due to increases in population all around the nation—and in Texas—increases in the number of cars on the road, and more technology and materials at hand to keep construction booming. As we busy humans keep building and purchasing cars, however, statistically there are just more chances for accidents – whether these are between trucks and cars, or even those traveling on two wheels or 2 feet.

If you had the misfortune to be in a serious car accident due to the negligence of another party recently, you may have experienced serious physical injury as well as property damage to your vehicle. There’s no way around it: this is a stressful time for anyone in your position, and especially if you must adjust to being in pain or even experiencing long-term debilitation that may make it impossible for you to work either temporarily or permanently. This means that not only are you being affected physically and having to focus on healing, but you may be extremely concerned about your finances as the medical bills continue to pile up—and quickly so.

No one likes to have to file an insurance claim or deal with another party’s insurer. And you may feel intimidated about dealing with the legal end, but it is undoubtedly in your best interest to consult with a skilled car accident attorney like Andrew ‘Pike’ Piekalkiewicz, PLLC. While the DIY craze may be effective for many different projects today regarding construction, technology, and so much more, applying it to your financial future is not recommended. With the help of an attorney, you have exponentially more leverage; sadly, insurers will straighten up almost immediately when they find out you are not on your own and vulnerable for them to take advantage of.

With legal representation, you can wash your hands of paperwork, speaking to adjusters, and tussling with the insurer overall. If they were considering acting in bad faith, they may have second thoughts upon speaking with your attorney. More importantly, your attorney will assess what damages you are owed and fight for you—rather than accepting a low-ball offer.
