Columbus Car Accident Lawyer Adds Professional Power To Claims

Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C. - Columbus, GA is urging car accident victims to hire an experienced attorney if they intend to pursue compensation. While it is not impossible for a victim to handle their claim on their own, the unfortunate truth is that they are more likely to get a much lower settlement without professional help.

The firm points out that individuals who tackle a claim by themselves will often miss several factors that would contribute to the size of their compensation. To begin with, many will assume that they are entitled compensation for more immediate issues, such as the damage done to their vehicle or their medical bills. While the latter of these often represents one of the largest components (and most important) parts of a settlement, an accident victim will also suffer damages in other ways. If they fail to take every factor into account, they may discover the loss when it is too late.

As an experienced Columbus car accident lawyer, Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C. understands the true cost an accident can have on an individual and their family (especially if they have dependents). This is why, in addition to seeking damages for harm caused to the client’s property (their vehicle) and health, the firm makes it a point to consider whether they are entitled to claim compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering and so on.

Certain injuries may even require ongoing medical care, with bills that add up over time. Any compensation that is offered today must enable the victim’s ability to continue paying for this care, even if it lasts for several years after the fact. Similarly, if they cannot resume work or need to retrain themselves to switch to a new field as a result of the injury, their compensation must account for this difference.

Further, there are several steps that can be taken to protect the victim’s right to compensation. Since many of these steps need to be taken swiftly, in the initial days and weeks following the accident, it is in their best interests to work with an attorney who can guide them from point to point.

Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C. adds that insurance companies will seek out the victim quickly in a bid to settle the case as fast as possible. As part of this strategy, they may offer a settlement that appears to cover the victim’s expenses, but the firm cautions that such settlements often fall far short of the true value of the compensation that is due. The best course of action is always to contact an attorney — Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C. will conduct a full appraisal of a client’s case and help them determine what the law truly considers is adequate compensation.
