3 Reasons Not to Assume You Know What Your Car Accident Lawyer Will Say

By on Feb 22, 2017 in blog | 0 comments

Are you one of the rare individuals who is able to keep ahead of life? You keep your paperwork in order, always early arrive, plan ahead, and you’re on target with your goals. Or, perhaps you’re more like typical adults. You feel successful if you manage to pay the minimum on all your bills each month, maintain a small savings account, you cover most meetings and your kids’ special events. No matter which of these categories you fit into, you know that the aftermath of a car accident can make even the most organized person’s life turn into disarray. 

Your Car Accident Lawyer Can Help

An experienced car accident lawyer knows that no matter how organized your life is, once an accident happens it knocks you off balance. The anxiety everyone feels when an accident happens adds responsibilities that can easily topple the order of your life.

Despite the painful results of personal injuries, disabled vehicles, and stress over unreliable transportation, all the legal questions and documentation just will not wait while you and your loved ones emotionally adjust to challenges from the after effects of an accident.

You don’t have to struggle with these disruptions in your life alone. Of course you do not want to be that person who knew, somewhere in the back of your mind, that you should get added protection but never found the right time to call. It’s a good bet that the right time is right now.

It could pay off some day if you contact a car accident lawyer in your Salt Lake City area and get general or specific answers now. This will help you decide on what kinds of benefits you need included in your insurance policy.

Why do People Put Off This Simple Phone Call?

Upwards of 92 percent of people who have suffered through tragedies such as a car accident admit they never accomplished their goal of finding out what to expect. In fact, many of these people assumed they already knew what their car accident lawyer was going to tell them.

(1) Many people living in Utah believe that people who drive sports cars get the most speeding tickets, have to pay higher insurance premiums, and will be more suspect in a legal accident dispute.

Ask the right questions and you will find that vehicles with the most violations are SUVs, coupes, and sedans.

There are two exceptions in this data: Drivers who choose the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Convertible or sporty model Scions did show up on the top 10 list. Your car accident lawyer can confirm that your own personal driver’s record carries more weight in calculating your premium.

(2) If you think your insurance will pay for a rental car if your car is   stolen or severely damaged in a vehicle accident you need to check your facts. The insured must specifically pay extra for car rental coverage. It is a minimal cost, just a few dollars, but it sometimes doesn’t cover the entire time your vehicle is disabled.

Even with car rental insurance on your policy, there’s a cap of how much your insurance company will cover. It might not last until a damaged or stolen car is returned.

(3) If it is determined that your car was totaled and it was another driver’s fault, do you think your insurance will pay off what you owed on your car loan or lease?

Many people have never heard of gap insurance. Talk to an attorney and you’ll find that any provider will pay your car’s Blue Book value. Be sure you are covered for the difference between your car’s value and the amount still owed on your loan, by purchasing gap insurance.

You want the right coverage for your family, in any auto accident.  Call (801) 738-9999, or visit Symkoviak Law  online for more information today.
