Why you should speak with Brett immediately
 

According to the Insurance Research Council's own research, claimants hurt in an accident who just talked to a lawyer to find out their rights, received an average of almost 40% more money1 than claimants who did not talk to a lawyer! People who then hired a lawyer received an average of more than 3 1/2 times more money, before deduction of legal fees and expenses, than those who did not hire a lawyer.2

Why you should speak with a lawyer immediately and not wait.

There are many forms and claim notices which have time deadlines to file, some of which may be only a number of days. Only a lawyer experienced with accidents can determine what claims need to be filed, which forms need to be filled out, how to fill out the forms correctly and which insurance companies to file the claims with.

If the statute of limitations is near, a lawsuit will need to be started immediately. Since any lawyer will need sufficient time to investigate your case prior to starting a law suit and will want to be able to complete depositions prior to the expiration of the statute of limitations, you will want to retain Brett Pearce well before the expiration of the statute of limitations.

Some things that must be done with time sensitive deadlines:

  • Notify your insurance company: MUST BE DONE IMMEDIATELY
  • Begin investigation: MUST BE DONE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
  • File Accident Report with the Department of Motor Vehicles (car accident. motorcycle accident & truck accident): USUALLY MUST BE FILED WITHIN A NUMBER OF DAYS
  • File No-Fault Claim (car accident - if applicable): USUALLY MUST BE FILED WITHIN A NUMBER OF DAYS
  • File claim for Lost Wages: USUALLY MUST BE FILED WITHIN A NUMBER OF DAYS
  • File claim for State Disability: USUALLY MUST BE FILED WITHIN A TIME PERIOD
  • File Notice of Claim (if applicable): USUALLY 90 DAY DEADLINE
  • File claim with all defendant insurance companies (there may be several insurance companies providing coverage for just one car in a car accident or for a premises in a slip and fall accident): SHOULD BE DONE WITHIN DAYS OF ACCIDENT
  • File claim with State insurance fund for uninsured drivers (car accident, motorcycle accident & pedestrian accident): THIS IS USUALLY TIME SENSITIVE
  • File SUM/UM claims (car accident, motorcycle accident & pedestrian accident): USUALLY MUST BE FILED WITHIN A NUMBER OF DAYS.
Some of the many insurance companies which may be involved and must be immediately notified when someone has been hurt in an accident are: 1) All Primary and Secondary insurance companies for each owner, driver and company responsible for your injuries; 2) All Primary and Secondary insurance companies providing Uninsured coverage or Underinsured coverage; 3) All Primary and Secondary insurance companies providing medical and economic benefits such as disability and lost wages; 4) Workers Compensation insurance companies.
