Seattle Accident Law: What to Expect From an Auto Accident Attorney
There’s no denying auto injury law can be complex at times. Building a successful car accident claim is certainly a difficult process. A single mistake can jeopardize your entire injury claim, potentially leaving you with empty pockets. Insurance policies are purposely written in a vague and confusing manner in order to make it easier to deny injury claims for trivial reasons. To ensure you receive the best possible settlement, you will need a car accident attorney who thoroughly knows Washington State injury law inside and out.
Below are the most common legal issues you can expect after your auto wreck:
Disputed Liability: One of the first tactics insurance companies use to get out of paying fair settlements is to refuse that their insured client was at fault for the auto accident. Without rock-solid evidence proving the other person was to blame, it can be a difficult for anyone outside of a skilled attorneys to prove liability. The attorneys with The Advocates have the legal knowledge and expertise you need to hold the at-fault parties responsible for the injuries and losses you have suffered.
Medical Billing: Too often, reading medical bills is like trying to assemble a jigsaw puzzle in the dark. We get it. Remembering which doctor you saw on what date and where can be a nightmare to keep track of. Before you know it, medical bills are piling up, insurance adjusters are calling on the hour, every hour, and the next thing you know, the other party’s insurance provider wants you to undergo an independent medical examination (IME), leaving you unsure as to what comes next. Thankfully, The Advocates have the best medical billing staff in the business. We will track down all of your medical bills, compile them in a comprehensive file, and make sure each and every one is paid for by the end of your case. Your car accident attorney will explain how best to deal with an IME. We will help you through the entire medical process. No one should have to pay medical expenses caused by another person’s recklessness and mistakes.
Property Damage Claims: One of the worst consequences of being involved in a car accident is having your vehicle wrecked or, worse, completely totaled. No one wants to be forced to take public transportation or ask a friend for rides about town. The Advocates understand that you want to be compensated for your lost vehicle.
