Car Accident Questions and Answers

Q: If I’ve been in a car accident, do I need a lawyer?

A: Insurance companies have high-paid lawyers and experts who will fight against you to make sure you get as little money as possible. Statistically, people represented by lawyers get three times more settlement money than people who do it themselves. So, while you don’t need a lawyer, having legal representation can ensure that you receive the compensation you are owed.

Q: How much will I have to pay a lawyer for help after an accident?

A: The great thing about personal injury lawyers is that we only get paid if we win your case. Our fee is a percentage of the amount of money that we recover for you. This allows you to choose the lawyer that you like the most, and that you think is best for the job, without worrying about paying big legal fees.

Q: What types of things can I get reimbursed for after a car accident?

A: In addition to medical bills, lost wages, and damage to your vehicle, you may get reimbursed for:

  • emotional distress
  • pain and suffering
  • loss of enjoyment  (loss of enjoyment of things you do for recreation such as hobbies and exercise)
  • loss of property in your vehicle or on your person at the time of the accident

Q:What should I do right after a car accident?

A: We suggest you:

  • Remain calm and remain in your vehicle (unless it’s too dangerous to do so)
  • Turn on your hazard lights
  • Call 911 even if your accident seems minor
  • Seek medical attention for any injured drivers or passengers
  • Unless necessary, do not move the vehicles until the police arrive
  • Never leave the scene of the accident
  • Write down the names, addresses and phone numbers of all parties involved, including any witnesses
  • Make sure you write down the names and badge numbers of any police officers that are investigating the accident
  • Photograph the vehicles and any injuries sustained by you or your passengers
  • Do not admit fault
  • Immediately notify your own insurance company of the accident

Do not discuss the accident with anyone except the police or your own insurance agent or representative; you are not required to give a statement to anyone but the police and your insurance company

Q:What should I do in the days following my accident?

A: Here are the steps you should take:

  • Obtain a copy of the accident report prepared by the police
  • Obtain a property damage valuation from your insurance company
  • Write down all visits with doctors and other healthcare providers and keep a journal of any symptoms or pain you experience. Also, get copies of all test results, medications, treatments, and any other relevant medical information
  • Keep a detailed list of any out-of-pocket expenses you incur
  • Record days of missed work or other activities in which you were unable to participate
  • Never accept a settlement offer from an insurance carrier unless you have consulted with a lawyer

Q: What is the difference between full and limited tort?

A: The tort option on your auto insurance policy determines your ability to pursue legal action in the event of an accident. If you have full tort, you may pursue compensation regardless of the severity of your injuries. Limited tort, on the other hand, limits your right to sue. If you have limited tort, you may only sue the at-fault party for the cost of your medical bills, but not for pain and suffering (pain and suffering often make up the bulk of a personal injury case). However, there are some exceptions:

  • If you are hit by a drunk driver
  • If you are a pedestrian who was hit by a vehicle
  • If the defendant’s vehicle is registered out of state
  • If you were riding in a commercial vehicle
  • If you were riding with a resident relative or spouse who has full tort and you were injured as a passenger in their vehicle
  • If the defendant is uninsured
  • If your accident resulted in death, permanent severe impairment of a bodily function, or disfigurement

Under any of the above circumstances, you would be given the benefits of full tort.

You can put your trust into Chris Munley. A couple of years ago I got into a car crash and didn’t think I would recover financially. The insurance company had denied my claim and I thought that was that. But thanks to Mr. Munley, I got the money I needed from the insurance company and I was able to get on with my life. Thank you again, Mr. Munley. A Car Accident Client

My car accident last year kept me out of work for over a month. I was afraid of losing my job, the medical bills were piling up and the insurance company would not return my calls. I made the right decision after calling Caroline Munley. She fought the insurance company and helped me get back on my feet. I wholeheartedly endorse her.” Personal Injury Client

After my car accident, I was severely injured and the insurance company refused to pay for my expenses. I knew that I needed help. I turned to Robert Munley and he fought for me like no one else has. Not only was he able to get me the money I needed to pay my medical bills but he kept me informed through the entire process. I don’t know where I would be without Robert Munley.
