Dealing with Auto Insurers

After a car crash, many injured people just want the funds they need to cover the costs of their accident. Your insurance company may offer you a settlement, or money to cover your losses, but they might not offer the full amount you need. If you settle, or accept the insurance company’s offer, you might find yourself trying to recover without the full financial help you really need.

It’s rarely easy to get the full funds you deserve. The insurers want to protect their profits, which may leave you without the compensation you need to recover. They may delay your claim, lowball your settlement, or outright refuse to discuss it, which means they may be acting in bad faith. If they are, you may be able to file a claim against the insurance company.

Having an Orangeburg, SC, lawyer on your side may help with your accident claim and any action against the insurance company. While your insurer may not want to compensate you for your losses, your Orangeburg auto wreck lawyer can give you the help you need with your claim.

Compensation after a Car Crash

It’s important to know what your car crash claim is worth, even if it sounds like your insurer is offering you a fair settlement. While it may seem like they’re offering you a fair amount, you could actually be receiving less compensation than you’re entitled to, which could hurt your chances to recover fully.

You’ll need to calculate both your financial and non-financial losses suffered because of the crash. While your financial losses may be a matter of adding up your medical bills and lost wages, you might also need to estimate the costs of your future expenses. For example, you may need future surgeries for the injuries you suffered in the accident.

Your non-economic losses can also be difficult to recover from. These losses are intangible, which means they don’t have a specific economic value, like the cost of car repairs. Instead, you may need to speak to a lawyer about calculating the impact of your crash-related losses on your mental and emotional well-being.

If you’ve suffered through a car accident in Orangeburg, your damages may include any of the following examples:

  • Hospital bills
  • Property damage
  • Household accommodations for injuries, like wheelchair ramps
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional trauma
