I’ve Been In a Car Accident… Now What?
Lloyd Baker Injury Attorneys strives to educate our clients on the expectations of a personal injury case. We know you are often confused and worried and we want to keep doing what we can to alleviate your stress during your difficult time.
Here are some frequently asked questions after an auto accident:
Q: Do I really need an attorney if I’ve been injured in an accident?
A: Yes! Injury claims are not as simple and straight forward as property damage claims. Insurers may be quick to issue a check for your vehicle damage, but don’t think that they will do the same for your medical payments. Arizona personal injury law can be very challenging, and tackling your injuries without a personal injury attorney would be a mistake that could cost you in the long run.
Q: How do I know what Attorney to Hire?
A: You’ll want an attorney with many years of experience in personal injury law. Lloyd Baker has over 15 years of experience as an attorney and has offices in Phoenix and Las Vegas. You’ll also want to choose an attorney with a background in insurance – that way you know your attorney understands the other side of the claims process. Prior to opening his two firms, Lloyd Baker worked for an insurance company. Knowing how insurance companies work, Lloyd Baker is confident that he can fight for his clients and earn them the compensation that they deserve.
Lloyd Baker views each client as a unique individual. While there are common causes of personal injury, no injury itself is “common.” Lloyd Baker Injury Attorneys aims to fully understand how your injury has impacted your life. Lloyd Baker is dedicated to preserving the rights of victims and their families, and willing to fight to recover the financial compensation you need.
Q: Will I have to go to court?
After an accident, we understand that you have better things to do with your time than sit in a courtroom. Luckily Lloyd Baker can usually reach a fair settlement through negotiations. However, if we cannot reach a fair settlement for you, we have the expertise and willpower to fight for you in court – often resulting in higher settlement and judgement amounts.
Q: How much money will I get for my injuries from my auto accident?
Your settlement amount will depend on your injuries. It is impossible to guess how much we will be able to obtain for you until we have evaluated all of your health information, records and bills. Wage losses and other factors also contribute to your settlement amount. If you are still treating for your injuries, it will also be difficult to evaluate your settlement amount. Trust us, we want you to get the most compensation possible for your injuries, and we will do whatever it takes to get you it – even litigate.
Q: I feel okay, do I have to see a Doctor?
Yes! Symptoms and injuries may not appear for days after an accident. It is in your best interest to seek medical attention immediately following an accident. If you choose not to treat your symptoms, or are scattered with your treatments, the defense will use this against you. Your personal injury case is much stronger with steady immediate medical treatment, and you will be stronger too!
