How to get the most compensation from your auto insurance

You pay a monthly or yearly amount for auto insurance to comply with state law and have peace of mind that you will get a return on your money if you get into a collision. This is what insurance is for, after all.

However, the reality is that often drivers find themselves facing monumental disappointment from their insurers and high expenses from an accident. You can avoid this situation by following these tips to get the most out of your coverage.

Make sure you have more than enough coverage

Too often, drivers get the minimal coverage that the state requires, usually due to the cost of insurance. While you may not think you can afford a comprehensive plan, what you definitely cannot afford is being left to pay expenses out of pocket in the event of a car crash. Using a motor vehicle comes with a high risk of accident, and accidents usually result in injury. It is worth the extra cost now to protect yourself from having to pay for expensive medical bills later. Be careful not to rely on the other driver's insurance provider, either. The motorist may have minimal insurance, too, or none at all.

Take the right steps after an accident

The best thing you can do to ensure you get a fair settlement is to have as much evidence as possible. This requires that you take the right steps following an accident, such as:

  • Photographing the scene
  • Reporting the incident to the police
  • Visiting the doctor immediately

The more proof you have of fault, crash type, damage and injury, the likelier you are to receive the full amount of financial compensation you have a right to.

Hire a lawyer

Unfortunately, even when you do everything right, insurance companies will not want to cooperate. They are more vested in keeping their profits than in helping you. You can benefit from having a qualified lawyer interact with insurers on your behalf, assist in gathering evidence and guide you through the legal process.

  3. I cannot thank Brad and the entire Kammholz Rossi team enough. I am so glad that I made the decision to have Brad represent me. I received an injury at work that would be a life changing event for me and my family. I needed to find an attorney that would look out for me and my family. After meeting with a few law firms I chose Brad and his firm. Brad was truly concerned with my injury and what was best for me and my family. Too many of the law firms I met with were only concerned with what they could get from a settlement. Brad is truly concerned with what is best for you. He will listen to all of your thoughts and concerns, and advise you on what actions would be best. Trust is a very important part of a relationship in a legal action. I trusted Brad and his firm. I always knew that Brad truly was looking out for what was best for me and my family. You will not regret having Brad and his entire firm represent you. Everyone there is very pleasant, friendly, casual and yet professional. Their approach helps reduce the stress and tension that comes with a bad situation. Over the twenty two months that Brad represented me, we developed a friendship. I consider Brad a friend and look forward to continuing that friendship for a long time. On behalf of me and my family we cannot thank-you enough for everything that you and your firm have done for us. Truly the best decision made in a bad situation.
