    What To Expect When Hughes & Coleman Begins Working On Your Car Accident Case

    For additional information on this subject, watch Partner Lee Coleman describe what Hughes & Coleman can do for you.

    Lexington Car Accident Lawyer

    After a car accident, you may have serious injuries and medical costs piling up – both the current ones you have to pay and potential future bills that may arise. You need a lawyer, but don’t hire just any lawyer. Hire a local lawyer – one that lives and works in your community.

    A local lawyer is going to be familiar with the area and the traffic laws. They will be able to investigate the scene of the automobile collision quickly and efficiently. They can also take photos and meet with your doctors if necessary.

    It seems like every week, some road in town is being torn up and redone (seriously, will they ever be done working on Clays Mill Road?). All kidding aside, taking photos and preserving the area that is the car wreck scene can be crucial to your case’s success. Changes to the roadway will make photos taken after the work is done meaningless as evidence in your claim. The evidence needs to be captured quickly after the accident so it can be accurately presented to the insurance carrier and, if necessary, to the court in personal injury lawsuits.

    Our team had a client who was in an automobile accident where the city of Lexington did work on the road that significantly changed the way the wreck appeared. The city did that work soon after the collision in which our client was injured. Without taking photos of the scene prior to the work being done, it would have been so much more difficult to demonstrate to the insurance adjuster what actually happened in the collision.

    You also want someone you can meet face to face (or mask to mask) and shake hands with – someone you can tell has your best interest at heart.

    Attorney-Client Legal Services Relationship

    The relationship between an attorney and client can go a long way toward the success of your claim. It can also make your life a whole lot easier. When you are in pain and suffering physical injuries due to your car accident, you need someone there to fight for you. You need someone that can talk to your doctors and the insurance companies. You shouldn’t be suffering because of someone else’s negligence. The other driver is responsible; let us ensure that they (and their insurance company) take responsibility for the injuries they have caused you.

    When you have an attorney you trust, you can focus on what matters – getting better and getting yourself healthy again. Sometimes when car wreck victims are trying to get the treatment they need, they run into roadblocks every step of the way. It can be difficult to schedule appointments and arrange transportation. Coordinating between as many as three different insurance companies and your doctors can be a nightmare. This is an area where our services can be of great value to you. We can take much of that off your plate, allowing you to focus on being treated by your doctors, and heal.

    So, if you’ve been injured and are having a hard time finding the time, energy and/or money to even start treatment, then our services are very much what you need right now.

    Experience Matters in an Auto Accident Case

    When you are in a Lexington, KY car wreck, you want a lawyer with years and years of experience in handling your type of case. At Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers, our team of car accident lawyers has the experience, and the day-in and day-out know-how, to make sure that your claim progresses smoothly, and your total compensation is as high as it can be.

    What you really need after a car wreck is medical care and money to pay for that medical care. You need to be made whole. We will work hard to ensure that your medical treatment is documented and that, at the end of the day, you walk away with as much money as you can.

    Why Does Law Experience Matter in Cases Involving Car Accidents?

    An attorney’s experience in handling car accident cases could prove to be the difference in the amount of money you put in your pocket.

    Our experience in handling cases for seriously injured victims allows us the flexibility to coordinate with the medical professional or professionals that are treating your injuries. On top of that, we will coordinate with the billing departments of the providers that you are seeing to try and keep the billing departments off your back. When you’re suffering and can’t work, the last thing you need to worry about is being harassed by bill collectors. A personal injury lawyer can be a barrier between you and those collection agencies.

    Don’t Wait to Call Legal Counsel

    There is crucial evidence to gather at the beginning of your claim. If you delay hiring an experienced lawyer, that evidence may be gone for good. Sooner is definitely better when hiring a personal injury lawyer to fight for your claim.

    Insurance Adjusters Can Be a Handful Regarding Legal Options

    Another very valuable reason to hire an attorney is that an insurance adjuster may try to record conversations with you and use those recordings against you. The insurance adjusters may seem friendly at first; however, it is crucial to remember that they are on the opposing side. They do not want to pay money to you. The insurance company that you are asking for money from is the same insurance company that will hire an attorney to argue against you in court. You read that correctly, so don’t be fooled into thinking that those ‘friendly’ insurance adjusters are the ones who are there to help you through this tough time – we are.

    Let us communicate with the insurance company to keep your case moving forward without any hiccups. We know the insurance adjusters’ tricks, and we will work hard to make sure that the information is communicated effectively to them in a manner that cannot be misunderstood, twisted or confused.

    Time Limits to File a Personal Injury Claim

    In addition to the evidence-gathering phase, there are also legal time limits, called “Statutes of Limitations.” These limitations govern the time limit you have to file a claim. Remember, if this time limit passes, your right to file a claim no longer exists. That is why sooner is better in regard to hiring a personal injury lawyer to fight for you.

    So, if you are in a motor vehicle collision, call Hughes & Coleman immediately. We will determine the Statute of Limitations on your claim and work diligently to get everything taken care of for you.
