The aftermath of an auto accident is a confusing and stressful time. Your biggest priority is making sure you and your loved ones are safe, but you may not realize that the insurance company is building its case to reduce or deny your claim for compensation. All too often, innocent auto accident victims are left paying for their own medical bills, despite being too hurt to go back to work and earn the paychecks their families depend on.
At Matt Hardin Law, our Hopkinsville auto accident lawyers know that you may feel overwhelmed and unsure of your next steps after a crash that wasn’t your fault—especially when you’re still focusing on getting better. Our law firm is dedicated to giving injured victims and their families the personalized attention, care, and commitment that they deserve during such a difficult time.
Why Do You Need a Car Accident Lawyer?
After your accident, dealing with paperwork and playing phone tag with the insurance company is the last thing you want to do. And when you finally get in touch with an adjuster, you may find that they’re uncooperative and unwilling to pay you enough money to cover your medical bills and lost wages.
Insurance companies count on victims giving up and accepting low-ball settlement offers, but having an experienced legal team on your side levels the playing field.
When you get in touch with our law firm, we’ll review the facts of your case and immediately go to work on your behalf in a variety of ways, such as:
We’ll gather evidence that proves the accident wasn’t your fault
The most important aspect of being able to recover maximum compensation is proving that you weren’t at fault for causing the accident. To do that, we’ll collect evidence by contacting witnesses, reviewing traffic camera and surveillance footage, consulting with crash scene experts, and even reconstructing the accident. It’s our goal to collect, analyze, and present evidence that leaves no doubt in the adjuster’s mind that the other driver’s negligence caused your accident.
We’ll present the severity of your injuries and their long-term impact on your family
In addition to proving that the accident was caused by a careless driver, we’ll also show the insurance company how the accident is affecting your life—both now and in the future. We’ll obtain copies of your medical report that show the full extent of your injuries, as well as the cost of treating them. And because many auto accident injuries leave victims partially or completely disabled, we’ll also factor in the wages that you’ll lose if you’re too hurt to go back to work.
We’ll negotiate with the insurance company
When an injured auto accident victim contacts the insurance company to get a settlement, they’re outmatched right away. Insurance companies train their adjusters to find ways to reduce or even deny settlements. Our legal team knows their tricks, and we stay one step ahead of them throughout the entire process. We won’t accept anything less than the full amount that you deserve for your accident-related expenses, including things like lost quality of life and pain and suffering.
We’ll keep you up to date on our progress
Calling a law firm and trusting them with your financial recovery after an accident can be difficult, especially if you’ve never needed an attorney before. We know that this may be an unfamiliar process for you and your family, and that’s why we’ll check in with you frequently to keep you updated on our progress and the ways that we’re fighting on your behalf.
We’ll represent you at trial if necessary
Although most auto accident claims are settled by insurers, some refuse to offer fair compensation to victims like you. When that happens, we’ll continue to fight for you, even if it means going to trial. We aren’t afraid of standing up to big insurance companies in the courtroom, and we know what it takes to win in front of a judge and jury.
Throughout the entire claim-building and presenting process, we’ll be available to speak with you and answer your questions and concerns. At Matt Hardin Law, it’s our goal to treat all our clients like family, and that means keeping you as informed and confident in our experience and attention to detail as possible.
