Greensboro Car Accident Lawyer
From 2000-2018, Greensboro had a 31.8% growth rate – far more than the national average. That means many, many more drivers on the road. That’s usually a recipe for more car accidents. If you’ve been hurt in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, you may benefit from the services of an auto accident attorney in Greensboro, NC.
How Long Does It Take to Get Paid After a Car Accident?
How long it takes for potential compensation after you’re injured in a car accident depends on a number of factors. You could be paid relatively quickly if you were not injured, and there are no complicating circumstances. The truth, however, is that it can take months for those entitled to be fairly compensated, depending on a great many factors.
For example, many times, when you’re injured in a car accident, any compensation you may receive should wait until treatment for your injury is complete – otherwise, how would you know the full cost of that treatment? Our Greensboro car accident lawyers strive to get our clients as much as possible as quickly as possible.
Should I Give the Insurance Company a Recorded Statement After a Car Accident?
Probably not. You’re required to cooperate with your insurance company if you’re making a claim on your policy. However, it is more likely that you’ll be dealing with the at-fault driver’s insurance company. In these cases we do not recommend giving a recorded statement without first consulting with an experienced Greensboro auto accident lawyer.
Will the Insurance Company Pay for a Rental Car?
They should. If their insured (the at-fault driver) damages your car, they should make you whole – which in this case means giving you substitute transportation. However, note that there are terms like “reasonable” used in these situations, and what is reasonable to an insurer may not be reasonable to you. For example, what if you were driving a vehicle that carries seven passengers and the insurer offers to rent you a small hatchback that may not suit your needs?
A Greensboro car accident lawyer can help you navigate these situations and help you make decisions based on what you need instead of just accepting whatever the insurance company may offer.
