Insurance companies are more than happy to take your money when you pay premiums. But if you’re in a car accident, you might find that these same insurance companies will stop at nothing to keep this money in their own pockets – and out of yours. Even if your accident was caused by a drunk driver, distracted driver or reckless driver, insurance adjusters might dispute your claim, deny your claim, or even try to say that you were at fault – even though you did nothing wrong. That’s not fair. Contact the Law Offices of Peter W. Summerill today to discuss your legal options with an aggressive Salt Lake City lawyer who knows how protect your rights after a car accident, tackle big insurance companies head-on, and fight for the compensation you deserve.
Even the most minor car accidents can quickly turn into a complex, frustrating legal matter. You might find that your accident was caused by an uninsured or underinsured driver or that an insurance company is acting in bad faith in order to minimize your compensation. In the days, weeks, and months after a car wreck, knowing what to do after an accident could make the difference between obtaining the compensation you deserve for your injuries and a long, complicated legal dispute that could leave you unable to pay for your medical bills and other expenses.
