Car accident compensation means we are now talking about figuring out the money side of your car accident. If you were injured in a car accident, by another driver, you can ask the other drivers insurance to pay you a cash settlement, OR, if that driver was not insured, you may request this settlement against your own underinsured motorist coverage on your OWN insurance, if you have this coverage.
All the pressure the insurance company is putting on you right after your accident is designed to make you believe something that is not true. There is no rush. Don't allow anyone to pressure you to sign any piece of paper related to this accident without the advice of a personal injury attorney.
I am going to say this a few times because it is so important to your future, do not sign any documentation with the insurance companies in exchange for cash, until you have finished your medical treatment.
Before you go any further, you need to first check the Statute of Limitations for your State. Every State has a set time limit which begins the day of your accident. You do not need to rush, but you need to know when you State requires you to settle your claim with the insurance company or file a lawsuit.
You must do one or the other BEFORE this Statute of Limitations runs out. There is nothing that can be done if you go past this date, your rights to recover anything come to an end.AL AK AZ AR CA CO CT DE FL GA HI ID IL IN IA KS KY LA ME MD MA MI MN MS MO MT NE NV NH NJ NM NY NC ND OH OK OR PA RI SC SD TN TX UT VT VA WA WV WI WY DC GU PR United Kingdom
There is nothing more difficult to write about than car accident compensation. More than anything I want to be able to help you by giving you a formula for what you should expect in fair compensation, but if you keep reading you will see why this would be foolish of me and unfair to you.
Before the insurance company even begins to consider your car accident compensation, what they are going to pay you, they will consider if you were at fault, and if yes, at what percentage. Make no mistake, the insurance company is highly motivated to find you even slightly at fault as this will significantly reduce any financial compensation you are due.
Again, check your State pages, listed in above paragraph, to determine what formula your State uses to determine fault, and how this determination will affect whether you are entitled to a settlement.
For some States, if you are found even 1% negligent, you are not entitled to any car accident compensation. If you are found to be even partially negligent in your accident, the at-fault insurance company will use this against you to lower or deny you any car accident compensation you might fairly be due.
However, the table of contents are very complete. The book is written well, and if you want to settle without an attorney, I think you will find good value in the book. It sells for $34.95, the price is slightly buried at the bottom of the page. You get to download the book immediately and start reading it. I printed mine at a local copy store and had it bound as I new I would read it often.
You are on the page called car-accident-compensation, its the one with all the states listed, so if you come back to report on the book, look for that page and click on this little box to give me your feedback!How To Settle Your Own Claim
