Woburn Car Accident Lawyer
Being involved in a car accident is probably the last thing anyone needs. If you or a loved one was seriously injured, there will be medical expenses. On top of that you will have the expense of the damages to your vehicle and possibly the damages to what you collided with, not to mention the overall stress of the situation.
One minute you are driving - to the grocery store, the dentist - the next minute your heart is racing and you look up to see that you have been in a car accident. Feeling uncontrollably scared or angry at the situation is common. However, doing your best to remain calm will benefit you later when lawyers and insurance companies become involved.
After the accident it is best to call 911, even if the accident is minor. The police will conduct an investigation into the accident to determine who was at fault, which is something your insurance company will need to know.Insurance Companies
Some insurance companies offer ways to file a claim at the scene of the accident. Regardless, it is important for your case to file a claim as soon as possible after the accident. If you wait it is more likely you will meet resistance from the company about compensation.
In Massachusetts, your insurance company is legally bound to uphold Personal Injury Protection (PIP), meaning that no matter who or what caused the accident, your insurance company will pay for all medical expenses as long as you were operating your own vehicle.
Keep in mind however, this means they may be more difficult when compensating vehicle and medical expenses.Car Accidents &Amp; U.S. Citizenship
If you are not a United States citizen and find yourself involved in a car accident, do not be afraid to file a claim. Both documented and undocumented immigrats may file a claim with an insurance company if they are injured from the accident.
Everyone has the right to receive medical treatment and compensation for that treatment. Filing a claim with an insurance company will not affect your immigration status.
Some insurance companies may try to turn on an undocumented immigrant by claiming that they cannot receive compensation because they do not have a social security number. This is a direct violation of the victim’s legal rights.
Undocumented immigrants will still receive compensation even if they do not have a driver’s license, as long as the accident was not their fault. It is important to call 911 even after a minor accident because the police will conduct an investigation to determine who/what was the cause of the accident.Why is Legal Representation important?
It is no secret that insurance companies do not always act in your best interest. Some insurance companies will give you nothing but a difficult time with compensation. Filing a claim and other legal processes after the accident can be confusing and difficult. It is not uncommon for insurance companies to be taken to court over compensation.
At DelSignore Law the number one goal is what is in the best interest of the client. Insurance companies can be difficult to work with and may try to play legal games to minimize the compensation you receive after the accident.
