Recently, the driver of a pickup truck that struck a car and injured four
people in El Paso’s Upper Valley has been identified and arrested
on charges of intoxicated assault. All injured in the accident are expected
to recover, and justice has been served from a criminal perspective. However,
sometimes in the wake of criminal events, it is easy to forget that there
are civil debts to be paid on top of the criminal debts. Those who are
the victims of any car accident are entitled to full damages for their
injuries, damage to their car, and any emotional trauma caused by the event.
Damages are paid to the victims in any accident or other situation by the person at fault. These damages should completely cover the financial loss of the people affected. When insurance companies offer a settlement, however, they most often attempt to cover as little of this loss as possible. Settling with the insurance company can, as a result, cause the victims to have to pay substantial amounts of money as a result of an incident that was not their fault. Insurance companies retain lawyers whose job it is to protect the assets of the company, and part of this process is to provide settlements for less than what would be required of them before the law. For this reason, it is crucial to have an attorney on your side willing to represent your interests and ensure a favorable result.
Some situations are more cut and dried than others. In a simple fender bender, for example, there may be little to be done except to fix up the vehicle. Generally speaking, these sorts of small issues are taken care of by an insurance company without resistance. However, in more severe accidents where people have been injured, receiving the full amount for damages often requires persistence and an expert who knows how to navigate the complex laws at play. Likewise, almost any claim to emotional trauma or lost wages will be met with resistance. The truth is that you are entitled to receive full damages for an accident that was caused by another, and an attorney will help you to receive those damages.
The legal landscape is complex as it pertains to what full damages really is. When an accident occurs, it can matter whether a felony was committed in the process of the accident’s occurrence what a given person will be able to collect in damages. Likewise, sometimes multiple people are faulted for the accident, meaning that the insurance companies are expected to cover to the degree to which their client was at fault. This often prompts a fight amongst the insurance companies, and is another situation where having an attorney ready to fight for your best interests is absolutely crucial.
What this all adds up to is an incredible amount of stress for anybody who is involved in a car accident. Not only is there the concern of being blamed for the accident, but there are many parties that are primarily interested in minimizing their losses to the victims rather than doing what is by default expected before the law. The offer to settle is appealing because of the stress involved in demanding more, and insurance companies count on this in order to save money. In order to combat this, you need someone in your corner who is compassionate with your best interests. The Doan Law Firm has the experience, resources, and heart to fight hard for you so that you can receive the damages to which you are entitled.
