If you are involved in a car accident it is likely that two questions will cross your mind: “Am I okay?” and “Is my vehicle okay?” The answers to these questions will play a big role in what you do next. If you are fortunate enough to escape personal injuries, your primary focus will lie with the damage to your vehicle. Either way, you will contact your insurance company and make a claim against your auto insurance policy.
A Washington State Attorney is Important
While calling your insurance company is logical in this situation, contacting a Seattle area property damage attorney is also a wise move. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident, the terms of your auto insurance policy, or the policy of others involved in the accident, there are many different directions your claim could take. If it is apparent that others involved in the accident were responsible for the property damage, it is that person’s and their insurance company’s responsibility to take care of the property damage and also compensate you for your inconvenience, including providing you with a rental car while your own vehicle is being assessed and either repaired or replaced.
Sometimes the answers to the questions surrounding the damage are not always clear-cut. By working with a Washington State attorney, the specifics of your case can be better defined and the appropriate insurance company will be asked to provide you with the compensation you need.
