Auto Accident Questions

Our Norfolk Car Accident Attorneys Can Answer Your Questions

What costs may I be entitled to recover after an auto accident?

If you have been involved in a car accident you may be entitled to recover compensation for:

  • Medical costs
  • Future lost wages
  • Pain
  • Property damage costs
  • Rental car expenses
  • Inconvenience
  • Disability
  • Lost wages
  • Scarring
  • Future medical costs
  • Suffering
  • Permanent injuries

Reckless and careless drivers are often punished by punitive damages, which are awarded in cases that involve willful and wanton conduct. Cases which involve a person driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol often result in these damages.

What if I was partially at fault?

If your accident occurred in Virginia or North Carolina and it can be shown that you were partially at fault for the accident, you may be barred from recovering for your personal injuries and damages. It is important that you contact an experienced Norfolk car accident attorney before you speak to the insurance company. Insurance company adjusters are trained to ask you questions that may give the illusion that you may have some fault in the crash. Never provide a recorded statement without having an experienced accident attorney by your side.

Should I speak with the other driver's insurance company?

No. After your auto accident, the other driver's insurance company will more than likely contact you in an effort to obtain a statement. It is in your best interest to not speak with any insurance adjuster until you speak to an experienced car accident attorney. Insurance adjusters are trained to ask you questions, which can be construed to make you look like you have some fault in the accident. Insurance companies do not make money by paying claims, and that is why they wish to obtain your statement immediately following the wreck. Even if you do not realize how your statements may hinder your case, you should not speak to the insurance adjuster. Instead, call the experienced Norfolk car accident attorneys at Kalfus & Nachman PC.

What other steps should to ensure I receive the compensation I am entitled to?

Call the police and seek medical attention immediately. You should always seek evaluation by a medical doctor to see if you have any internal injuries. Even if you do not think you are injured, your injuries may not be apparent to you. If possible, take pictures of the damage to the vehicles and the surrounding scene. Be sure to obtain the names of any witnesses to the crash. Have your friends and family confirm the names and addresses of these witnesses.

If you or a loved has been involved in a car accident, contact Kalfus & Nachman PC at (855) 880-8163 or complete our online questionnaire today.
