Hello my friend.
Attorney Paul Samakow at your service.
I’ve met with thousands of personal injury claimants through the years, and I can confidently say that not one of their cases was the same. From injuries on the road caused by a distracted driver, to bad burns at a backyard barbeque when a cook lost control of his grill, each of my client’s stories is unique to them.
If you’ve been badly injured due to someone else’s negligence the nature of your injuries and the circumstances surrounding your case can make a huge difference to the outcome of your personal injury claim. This is why my team at Samakow Law conducted a thorough investigation of the facts surrounding your case.
In this blog post, I’ll take you through the process of how we investigate an auto collision.
First, it’s important to note that I avoid using the word “accident.” An accident implies that the incident was unavoidable, and no one is at fault. However, most auto collisions are caused by negligence, and someone is typically responsible for the damages and injuries that result.
To start the investigation, I gather evidence. This includes police reports, witness statements, dashcam or video footage, photos, medical records, and anything else that may be pertinent to the case. Then I review all of this information in effort to determine the cause of the collision and prove who is at fault.
Once all the necessary information has been gathered, I begin negotiating with the responsible party’s insurance company. This is where having the best personal injury attorney can make all the difference.
The other party’s insurance adjuster WILL conduct a thorough investigation of your claim. This adjuster is highly trained and very good at what they do. And what they do best is protect the financial interests of their employer. An insurance adjuster will happily deny your claim if they can and work diligently to pay you as little as possible if they must admit their insured is at fault.
At my law firm we work to gather evidence, understand the facts and circumstances surrounding your case and have a clear understanding of your injuries and the impact they will have on your life. All of this can have a huge impact on the outcome of your case, and we want these details properly presented when it’s time to negotiate for a fair settlement with an insurance adjuster.
If a fair settlement cannot be reached through negotiation. We are prepared to take your case to trial. This is where having an experienced and skilled attorney is essential. And with four decades of experience representing folks just like yourself, my team and I have a proven track record of fighting and winning for our clients in court.
