What is the Process of Filing an Injury Claim
The majority of personal injury cases are settled before a lawsuit is needed. Once an attorney is involved in your case the insurance adjuster will know that you are only willing to settle for a fair amount. At this point, they understand that they may save money by settling your claim before they have to hire an attorney to represent the at-fault party. Cases that are not settled pre-suit will have to have a lawsuit filed to continue to pursue the injury claim. This is where a trial attorney with experience is extremely valuable. Your attorney should first review your case including all pictures, accident reports, and witness statements to determine liability.
Keep in mind that Texas limit the amount of time personal injury victims have to seek compensation for expenses such as medical bills, lost income, rehabilitation, physical pain and emotional suffering due to a personal injury claim such as a car accident. However, the sooner you start, the sooner you can pursue a personal injury lawsuit and receive a personal injury settlement. A qualified and experienced personal injury lawyer will expedite the process of settling with the insurance company.

Personal Injury Protection
Personal Injury Protection (PIP), is for the purpose of partially reimbursing you and your family for medical expenses and lost wages resulting from an auto accident, regardless of fault. I routinely help clients recover personal injury protection benefits (PIP) for their medical expenses and lost wages.
UM and UIM Insurance stands for Uninsured Motorist and Under-Insured Motorist coverage. Sometimes when a person is in an auto accident the at-fault party may not have insurance. In this case, uninsured motorist coverage may cover your injury claim. Under-Insured Motorist coverage may be applicable if the at-fault party does not have coverage to cover your claims. Both of these coverages are optional coverages, however, I highly recommend speaking with your insurance agent regarding these additional coverages.
GAP insurance is another type of additional insurance coverage. Unlike the coverages above gap insurance is strictly for the property damage portion of your claim. If your vehicle receives damage in an accident and your car a total loss gap insurance may provide coverage. In a total loss, the insurance company only pays for the fair market value of your car. For example, if you owe $25,000.00 on your vehicle but the fair market value is only $20,000.00 you could be on the hook for owing the remaining $5,000.00. Gap insurance usually covers this $5,000.00 gap in coverage. You can purchase gap insurance when buying your vehicle. Therefore, if you are financing your vehicle, I would strongly suggest considering getting gap coverage.
Accidents occur every day and people or seriously injured every day. Thus, It is important to have etc right insurance coverage for if you are in an accident. Lastly, if you have any questions regarding an injury claim feel free to call me free of charge.
