Whether it’s a major accident with property, vehicle, and serious personal injury or a no-fault incident with a scrape or bruise, rarely does one escape an accident without attaining some negative impact, from vehicle damage to physical and psychological injuries. In many cases, the accident itself is only the start of what can be a complicated process of filing an insurance claim, determining fault, and most importantly, getting the closure one needs to move on with their life. Having to take on both the insurance companies and the law to receive what you deserve from your accident is intimidating and often, victims will accept a smaller settlement than if they had hired an attorney or received a free legal evaluation.
