Get Answers To Your Car Accident Questions

At Freeman Law, we understand that you likely have many questions after a serious accident. Below are answers to some of the most common questions we have heard in our more than 20 years of legal practice. We would also be happy to address your specific questions during a free consultation.

Should I accept the insurance company’s initial settlement offer?

No — not before you review the offer with an experienced personal injury attorney. You may have a policy with your insurer, but insurance companies are primarily interested in their own bottom line. The way insurers make money is by limiting claim payouts or rejecting claims entirely when possible. That means the settlement offer you first receive may be far less than your case is worth and, more importantly, far less than you need to cover your expenses.

At Freeman Law, we are very familiar with how insurance companies operate, and we are not afraid to aggressively advocate for you when insurers fail to make a good faith offer.

How much is my car accident case worth?

The answer to this question will depend on the facts of your specific case. You should contact us to discuss your case in greater detail. The amount of compensation (also called damages) in a car accident case will depend on numerous factors, including:

  • The extent of your injuries or disability
  • Medical bills (past, present and future)
  • Lost wages from time when you were unable to work
  • Reduced earning capacity (if the accident left you disabled in some way)
  • Pain and suffering

Each case is unique, so the best way to determine your legal options is to consult with one of our attorneys.

Who is potentially liable in a trucking accident?

If you were injured due to trucking negligence, multiple parties may be liable for your injuries. Those parties may include the trucking company, the truck driver, the truck manufacturer and all of those parties’ insurance companies. Because truck accident cases are so complex, and because trucking companies have their own lawyers, it is crucial to put us on your side as soon as possible if you have been injured in a trucking accident.

Do I have to pay out of pocket to get a car accident attorney on my side?

At Freeman Law, we handle all car accident cases on a contingency-fee basis. That means we don’t get paid unless we win for you.
