The Advocates Car Accident Claim Process
Step 1: Investigate the Accident
The first steps The Advocates will take is to investigate your accident. Our attorneys do this by obtaining a police report about your accident, examining any photos or videos of the crash scene, and speaking to any relevant witnesses. Once we have established liability, we will begin to build your injury claim.
Step 2: Build Your Claim
Building your car accident injury claim is one of the most time-consuming steps in the entire process. Our staff must wait until you are finished treatment for your injuries before we can compile a comprehensive medical record of the injuries you have suffered from your accident. This is a timely process so be patient.
Step 3: Negotiate a Settlement
Once you are finished treating your injuries and your medical records have been gathered, your attorney will send out a demand package to the at-fault party’s insurance. Afterwards, negotiations with your attorney will begin. If we are unable to negotiate a fair offer, then you will have the option to file a lawsuit.
Step 4: Litigate If Necessary
Time wise, litigation is the longest step in the claim process, possibly extending the life of your claim one or, even, two years. If you do decide to file a lawsuit, be prepared to potentially appear before a judge and jury.
Wyoming Auto Accident Lawyers and Statistics
According to statistics compiled by the Wyoming Department of Transportation, over 13,000 car accidents occur every year in Wyoming. Even more disturbingly, one person is killed in a traffic crash every three days in Wyoming.
Statistics such as these can be upsetting since they are proof of a sad reality of the road: accidents happen each and every day on roads and highways throughout Wyoming. These unfortunate statistics also include non-automobile vehicles, as well. One motorcyclist was injured in a motorcycle crash every 36 hours, a pedestrian was hurt once every 4 days, and a bicyclist every 5 days. Indeed, during 2016, the most recent year such statistics were compiled, there were a total of 13,846 accidents involving motor vehicles in the state of Wyoming.
When confronted with such statistics, it isn’t easy to feel safe when traveling on Wyoming roads. How can you protect yourself from being in a car accident, much less your family? Do such harrowing statistics show that being in a car crash is inevitable?
The unfortunate truth is that there is little you can do to prevent being in a car accident. Tragedies such as a car or truck accident can strike without so much as a moment’s notice. The best thing to do is make sure you have a plan if one day you do find yourself unlucky enough to be in a car accident.
