How Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Help After A Car Accident?
Auto accidents and personal injuries are a complex classifications of law. If your personal injury falls under auto accident injury laws, contact Goldberg Persky & White P.C. as we are experienced in auto accident injury law. This type of law includes injury from accidents involving passenger vehicles, trucks, motorcycles, or any vehicle that moves over roads.
If you have been involved in a vehicle accident that resulted in a physical injury, your first step is to file a claim with your insurance company and the insurance carrier for the at-fault party.
Investigation of the Accident
The insurance company for the at-fault party will immediately launch an investigation into the wreck to prove who was at fault and reduce the amount they may have to pay out. While this investigation proceeds, it is crucial for us to complete a thorough examination of our own which can include:
- Reviewing police reports and photographs
- Interviewing witnesses
- Reviewing video footage of the accident
- Researching both parties’ driving records
- Recreating the scene of the accident
Insurance company attorneys spend every day fighting claims on behalf of their employers. They have the experience, monies, resources, time, and knowledge of the legal rights you have at their disposal to reduce your claim or deny it altogether. On your own, you may not know your legal rights, what alternative you could use, or what to do to fight them. At GPW., we can ensure that all of the evidence is adequately preserved, inform you of your rights, and help level the playing field.

Handling Discussions With Insurance Companies
Usually, a claimant will seek compensation from the at-fault party’s insurance company first. Remember that these insurance companies are for-profit businesses and may try to confuse you or push you into agreeing to settle the case for an amount that is not sufficient to cover your losses.
We will handle all communications with the insurance company so you can focus on your recovery.
If you or your loved one has been injured in a car accident, you could be entitled to seek compensation from the party whose negligent conduct caused the injury. Don’t risk not receiving the full amount of compensation to which you are entitled. Call GPW today!
