Were You Injured In An Automobile Accident In Shelby County?
Car accidents cause more than just headaches and damage to personal property. They can cause substantial personal injuries to the drivers and passengers involved.
One false move on the road can turn your life upside down. Having Shelby County car accident attorney Joseph R. Kemp working for you can help you get things back on track after an automobile accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, DUI accident or other personal injury matter.
Negotiating Fair Compensation In Car Accident Injury Cases
Some people attempt to work directly with an insurance company regarding their claim. It is important to note that the matter needs to be treated with a great deal of care and attention to pertinent details about your long-term health and well-being. Insurance companies will treat your claim like a file in the file cabinet, and break your injury down into the lowest possible amount of money they can get you to settle for.
This kind of negotiation should be handled on your playing field — not theirs. It is your injury and your livelihood, and the injuries you sustained can have long-term effects on your medical expenses, your ability to obtain insurance coverage, your insurance premiums and your employment, income and wages.
Many people who attempt to work through these matters on their own find themselves in endless negotiations with insurance adjusters, medical professionals and other key players that do not recognize the urgency of the case. In Alabama the statute of limitations is two years from the date of the accident. You must file your claim within that time in order to collect on damages caused by the accident. The longer you wait, the more difficult it is to gather documentation and evidence of your claim.
