Is it true that if I rear end a car that I’m at fault?

Almost always the answer is yes. The law says that you have to be able to stop safely if a car stops in front of you.

I didn’t go to the doctor right away and now I have pain.

You should always see a doctor after an accident even if you’re not feeling pain right away. Be sure to document when you noticed the pain and when you went to the doctor.

Do I need an attorney?

The other driver doesn’t have car insurance; how am I supposed to collect money from him now?

Often times a person’s personal assets will come into play in a case such as this. An attorney knows the law surrounding automobiles and insurance, and can advise you on your rights in this situation. Contact Haverman Law Firm today.

Will my insurance company pay for my medical bills while I wait to go to trial?

Often times, yes, to a certain amount and then they will get reimbursed once the case is complete.

How am I supposed to get back and forth while my car is in the shop?

Check your insurance policy; many will have a clause that allows you to rent a car. Be sure to track the expense involved as this is considered a cost that you suffered.

How much money can I expect to get in a settlement?

The award is directly related to the injuries incurred.

The other driver’s insurance company offered me money. I haven’t even hired an attorney, but I could really use the cash. Should I take it?

No. Tell the insurance company that you’ll get back to them. In the meantime, contact an attorney immediately. Often times an insurance company will offer a minimal amount of money in return for your signature stating that you won’t sue them. Never take an insurance check without first consulting an attorney.

I can’t afford an attorney! What do I do?

Normally, in cases such as these, you don’t pay the attorney any money until, and if, you win your case. If you do win, they are likely to request 33% of the settlement.
