What Else Do I Need to Be Aware of as I Explore My Legal Options?
Too often, accident victims fail to contact an experienced Salt Lake City, Utah tow truck accident lawyer for hours, days, and even weeks following an injurious collision. It’s important to explore your legal options as quickly as possible for a few reasons.
First, the law only allows you so long to file certain kinds of legal claims. If you don’t act quickly, you may become saddled with the costs stemming from your accident (medical bills, lost wages, etc.). If someone else was at-fault for your collision, you should be able to hold that person/entity and/or their insurance provider accountable for the costs stemming from the harm they caused. You don’t want to wait too long or you may have to manage those costs yourself.
Second, evidence at an accident scene can become compromised within minutes. Sometimes, the difference between obtaining the compensation to which you have a rightful claim or not rests in the strength of the evidence that supports your case. Acting quickly better ensures that the team at Rasmussen & Miner can preserve evidence which supports your claim so that we can build the strongest possible case on your behalf.
In order to preserve the strength of your case, if possible, don’t speak with an insurance claims adjuster from your insurance company or from any other insurance companies until you’ve spoken with our firm. Insurance companies are private enterprises that have a fiduciary duty to remain profitable on behalf of their stockholders. As a result, their loyalties are neither with accident victims nor policy holders. In order to protect their bottom line, they will use any legitimate excuse (and some will use illegitimate excuses) to undervalue and/or reject claims. We understand how to negotiate with insurance companies effectively. Please allow us to speak with them on your behalf to better ensure that nothing is said that can unintentionally lead to a devaluation or rejection of your claim.
Similarly, take care when using social media, text messages, and email until your case is concluded. If your case becomes contentious, other parties involved may use your social media, text, and email activity as evidence to minimize the strength of your claim. For example, if you have sustained injury to your shoulder but post a picture of you holding your child up in the air, an opposing party could try to use this post as evidence that you’re not sincerely hurt. It can be tough to stay away from social media, etc. But if you must communicate electronically at this time, please do so with care.
