A detailed investigation provides a solid base for your DeVault Law attorney to aggressively pursue compensation for your injury. We provide insurance companies with documentation of your claim. We often go beyond that, creating custom documents that may highlight certain aspects of your claim that show why you deserve more compensation than is being offered.
We also utilize innovative techniques to get the insurance company pay more for your claim. For example, we use jury research groups to obtain perspectives about your case from the ordinary everyday people who might actually serve as real jurors on a case like yours. These research groups are video-taped. When appropriate, we have edited together clips showing the amounts of money our research jurors would award for the claim and supplied these videos to the insurance company along with our demand for payment. Innovative techniques like these help DeVault Law obtain maximum compensation for your injury.
Being involved in a car accident is a very stressful situation and people never know how they are going to react. Some tips to be aware of if you are involved in an accident include:
Stay at the scene of the accident. It is often illegal to leave the scene of the accident unless you have already been released by law enforcement (if called) or exchanged insurance information with the other party in the accident.
Make sure everyone involved with the accident is okay. If not, make sure to call emergency services as soon as possible so medical attention can be received.
Take information of all parties involved, including the witnesses.
Seek medical attention if you have been injured (even if it is a slight injury). Injuries can linger and worsen as days and weeks go by. Your legal claim will have more support with medical records showing you sought all medical treatment reasonably necessary and followed the doctor’s instructions.
Seek legal counsel as soon as you are able to.
