Every day in Fredericksburg, two to three car accidents occur within the city limits. In addition to the countless injuries that result from these auto accidents, there are on average two fatalities a year. For weeks or even years after an automobile accident, the injuries that occur can turn your world upside down, leading to stress and uncertainty about the future.
According to Virginia law, you may be entitled to compensation if you have been hurt in a car crash through the recklessness or negligence of another driver. You may be entitled to compensation for the following damages:
- Lost wages
- Funeral expenses
- Past medical costs
- Future medical costs
- Loss of economic opportunity
- Pain, suffering, and inconvenience
What are my next steps after a car accident in Fredericksburg?
Nearly all insurance companies will attempt to contact you as early as the day after the accident to obtain a recorded statement regarding your injuries and the accident. Before speaking with any insurance representatives, protect yourself by reaching out to Allen & Allen to share the details of your situation.
There is no legal obligation to provide insurance companies with a statement, and if you do, it is possible that it can be used against you during the settlement process. If you have a case, our experienced Fredericksburg car accident lawyers can help you:
- Collect evidence that may need to be presented, in order to protect your claim for financial compensation for your injuries.
- Pursue uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage and medical payments coverage from your own insurance company.
- Obtain a fair settlement offer for damages through negotiation.
- Recover damages you are entitled to from the negligent driver’s insurance company.
The circumstances behind every car accident vary, but one fact holds true — the period immediately following a crash is disorienting. Our convenient Glove Compartment Quick Reference Guide will help you navigate the steps to take after a car wreck.
