Fayetteville Car Accident Lawyer
After a serious car accident, life gets complicated very quickly. As you struggle to heal, you may be unable to work and earn an income. With mounting medical bills, it can often be tempting to accept a settlement from the insurance company as soon as possible. However, it is important that you do not try to deal with the insurance company on your own.
Do Not Handle The Insurance Process On Your Own
Insurers are not looking out for your best interests after an accident. Their first tactic may be to pressure you into a low settlement before the full extent of your injuries is known. Taking this offer immediately can have serious repercussions in your future. Sometimes the long-term effects of an injury are not revealed right away. So if you agree to a settlement now, you waive your rights to pursue further compensation should complications arise later on.
Furthermore, because the insurance claims process is so complex, when accident victims try to navigate the process by themselves, they risk saying or doing something that jeopardizes their rights to full compensation. There is simply too much at stake to handle this on your own. Fortunately, you do not have to.

At Gramling Estes Law Firm, we have been helping car accident victims recover compensation for many years.

- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent disfigurement
- Emotional distress
- Loss of consortium
Additional Considerations After A Car Accident
We have successfully handled many car accident claims over the course of our careers. Our lawyers understand the detailed nuances that come with these cases and can skillfully advise on a range of peripheral issues such as:
- Revocation of assignment of rights: Most car accident victims don’t realize that they may have given the hospital the authority to decide whether or not it will submit medical bills to the insurance company or to the patient. If appropriate, our lawyers will ensure this assignment is revoked so you are not personally responsible for payment.
- Personal injury protection (PIP) and MedPay: Many car accident victims don’t know that they may be able to seek up to $5,000 of insurance compensation from their own car insurance if they have certain types of coverage in their policy. Our lawyers will help you understand this avenue of recovery before we proceed to the at-fault party’s insurance policy.
- Underinsured drivers: If you have been injured by an underinsured driver, it may seem like a good idea to accept whatever insurance money is available and move on. However, without consulting an attorney, you may be waiving your rights to more compensation that you did not realize is available. We can help assess the situation and work to maximize your recovery.
