A qualified and knowledgable auto accident attorney can help you in many different ways following a car accident. It is important that your lawyer communicates with insurance companies on your behalf, because more often than not insurance companies will try to settle with a victim, giving them much less compensation than they deserve. At Kats, Jamison & Associates, our dedicated lawyers are trained to negotiate for the maximum settlement possible using the full extent of the law.
If the driver who caused and is responsible for the accident does not have proper insurance, our personal injury lawyers understand the best way to handle uninsured or underinsured claims. In some cases, drivers will have limited tort insurance, thus decreasing the amount of liability an insurance company has when processing a claim. In these situations, sometimes it is necceary to bring a claim against your own insurance company to supplement the monetary losses that were not covered by the liable party.
In the case that you are still unable to recover your losses via insurance claims, a lawyer can file a personal injury claim on your behalf.
