What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville Insurance Claims Attorney

If you are in a car accident, one of the first things you need to do is file a claim with your automobile insurance company. Of course, if you have been driving for some time, you are probably familiar with this procedure. However, even experienced drivers can be intimidated by pushy claims adjusters, and many people do not receive the money they are truly entitled to after an accident. Some people even end up paying for damages that were not their fault.

Jacksonville insurance claims lawyer Don Guthrie can assist you with your battle for fair compensation from an insurance company.

Fighting for Fair Compensation

To put it bluntly, insurance companies are not designed to help people cover medical or mechanical expenses. They are designed to turn a profit. This means that in the event of a vehicular collision, both your insurance company and the other party’s will be trying to pay out as little money as they can.

Following your accident, you will need to speak to a claims adjustor from your insurance company. You may also need to speak with one from the other party’s insurance company, if it was a two-vehicle accident. Many people take this step too casually, believing that they can simply describe what happened and the insurance companies will take care of everything.

In truth, both companies will be trying to manipulate you into saying things advantageous to them. However, an experienced Jacksonville personal injury attorney can help you successfully navigate this process. Call 904-296-1088 to learn more.

The Importance of Legal Advice

Before you speak with a claims adjuster, we strongly recommend contacting a Jacksonville insurance claims attorney. Your attorney can advise you on your rights and responsibilities, tell you what to say to a claims adjustor, and make sure you get the payments you are entitled to.
