Washington DC Car Accident Attorneys
Between the big population and the old, narrow streets, Washington, DC has problems with traffic. The original planners who laid out the city didn’t realize the streets would one day be full of SUVs and luxury sedans commuting to work from the suburbs, and unfortunately, the result is that the crowded roads see tens of thousands of auto accidents each year.
In many cases, no one gets seriously hurt and the cars involved can get their repairs at the local body shop. It’s probably obvious enough which driver is at fault, and so once everyone exchanges insurance information you can get the money for repairs quickly enough. After that, you can move on with your life.
However, all too often a car accident will be more complicated than that. A bad injury could send someone to a hospital, a serious crash will total the car, or the drivers involved may disagree on who is at fault. The insurance company might also be reluctant to pay even if the facts of the accident seem obvious to you. In cases like this, it can help to find Washington, DC car accident attorneys who can represent you and who know all about how traffic laws, settlements, and court cases work. That’s when it’s time to call the law offices of Wingfield, Ginsburg, and Lipp.
Professionals Can Deliver Results
Insurance companies are for-profit institutions. That means that any claim they pay out comes out of their bottom line, and because of that they hire the best investigators and claim adjustors they can find and look for any reason to reduce a claim or deny it entirely. This can even mean watching you at home to see if you act as injured as you say you are.
At the same time, accidents can often turn out to be worse than you thought they were originally. Many serious brain injuries don’t show symptoms until days or even weeks after an accident, and something might knock loose in your car during a crash but not break completely until later. Insurance companies will try to argue that these damages are made up, or else they came from some other source they don’t have to cover.
