Our personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. This means that you don’t pay anything during the course of the personal injury lawsuit. The lawyer is paid a percentage of the final settlement.
Insurance companies assess fault in accordance with the Fault Determination Rules. If you disagree with your insurance company’s assessment of fault, you can contact the claims adjuster handling your case. You may present any new additional evidence that may change the decision.
If the insurance company still refuses to revise the decision and you still disagree, you may contact the insurance company’s complaint officer and inquire about the company’s complaint-handling procedures. Alternatively, you may speak to an experienced no-fault insurance lawyer.
Upon realizing that your injuries may prevent your return to work, you should notify your employer about your car accident. You should keep in touch with your employer throughout your recovery, updating them on the possibility of returning to your position in the future.
