3 Things We Know About Your Car Accident

Personal injury law is a broad discipline. At Cofman Townsley, we handle a wide range of cases from car accidents to medical malpractice. That variety in case type ensures there’s always something new and unique coming through our doors. Though the specifics of each car accident are different, there are 3 things we can pretty much guarantee is true about your car accident without knowing any of the details.

  1. If injuries were involved, it’s going to get complicated. Fender benders happen all the time in St. Louis, many of which are never reported. Even if substantial damage was done, the damage claim process is pretty straight forward, requiring a few hours of your time–a temporary inconvenience for sure. Add injuries into the mix, and everything gets more complicated. Now you have an injury claim, which means a fight with the insurance company for compensation.
  2. Your first settlement offer will probably be low. If you are injured in a car accident, it’s the at-fault driver’s insurance company’s responsibility to compensate you for your injuries. Their goal is to pay you as little as you’re willing to take for your injuries, so you can bet on that first initial offer to be lower than you might get with an attorney.
  3. Your best next step is to consult with an attorney. No matter how severe your injuries or how much the insurance company is offering you, your next step should be to call an experienced St. Louis car accident attorney. At Cofman Townsley, we offer free consultations to all St. Louis car accident victims, so you have nothing to lose by giving us a call. We’ll advise as to what your next steps should be, so you can approach your injury claim with confidence.
