If you were involved in a car accident, you may want to employ an accident and personal injury attorney to assist you with communicating with your insurance company and ensuring that they fulfill all parts of your insurance coverage. Here are three ways that an accident attorney can help you after you have been in an accident.
#1 Review Your Policy
It can be easy to forget all of the different types of coverage that you signed up for after you have been in an accident. You may not even fully understand all aspects of your coverage.
An attorney can review your insurance policy and help point out to you all the different types of assistance you should be getting from your insurance company. They can also communicate with your insurance company on your behalf and work with them to ensure that all of your coverage options are put into action.
#2 Rental Car
When you get into an accident, if you have rental reimbursement coverage, you should get a free rental car. Your accident attorney can review your case and make sure that you are getting the best vehicle possible according to the terms of your policy. They can also work with the insurance company and rental agency to make sure that you don't face any additional and unexpected costs when your rental agreement is up and you return your rental car.
#3 Medical Costs
Your car insurance should cover your medical costs even though your traditional health insurance may not cover your medical costs associated with a car accident. This can be very confusing when you are just trying to navigate getting the best care possible. Your accident attorney can help advocate for you and ensure that you get the medical care that you need. They can also help ensure that all of your care and bills are properly documented so that you get the right compensation that will fully cover your medical costs and don't leave you with any medical debt following your accident.
An accident attorney can help you navigate working with your insurance company. They can help ensure that you get everything that is promised in your policy and they can help keep track of all important information in case you need to go to court with your insurance company to get the settlement that you need. Having an attorney by your side the entire time can help ensure that everything with your insurance company goes smoothly. Contact a firm like Downs, McDonough & Cowan LLC to learn more.
