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.
How is Liability Determined in a Dog Bite Case?
Many people who are bitten by dogs often do not take their injuries seriously. They see their injuries as if they were simply a minor cut or just a scratch. What most people don’t know is that 1 in every 5 dog bites is severe enough to require professional medical attention. Being bitten or scratched by a dog automatically puts a person at risk for infection or further illness.
Many dog bite cases are due to a person being bitten by a dog owned by a family member or friend of the victim. Due to this, many dog bite injury victims may be hesitant to file a personal injury claim over their injuries. The Wyoming Advocates certainly understand such hesitation. But what most people aren’t aware of is that dog bite injury claims aren’t filed against the dog’s owner. The injury claim is filed against the insurance policy of the homeowner. When you hire an Advocate to represent your legal case, we will ensure your dog bite injury claim is handled in a professional and courteous manner so that no damage will come to your personal relationship.
