We’ll Handle Your Property Damage
When someone is involved in a serious accident, there are generally two parts of their claim: their personal (or bodily) injury and their property damage. These two components are handled separately.
If you suffered significant injuries in a collision, your medical bills for surgeries, medications, hospital stays, and any ongoing treatment can reach tens of thousands of dollars. A personal injury lawyer can add substantial value to your claim by helping you pursue damages to cover these expenses.
But what if your car was also totaled or requires significant repairs? The responsible driver’s insurance company will then assign a property damage claims adjuster to your case and, in theory, you should receive the fair market value of your vehicle.
Since property damage claims are based off the value of your vehicle or the cost of the repairs, they tend to be easier to resolve than bodily injury claims. However, insurance adjusters are known for doing whatever it takes to make a profit. Even if you know the true value of your car, the insurance adjuster may use tactics designed to pressure you into accepting less than you deserve.
What’s more, people who have suffered serious injuries and property damage often say things, unknowingly, to the property damage claims adjuster that ends up damaging their bodily injury claim.
For these reasons, The Law Offices of Blaine Barrilleaux fights for the amount our clients are owed for their property damage in addition to their bodily injuries. In other words, if we represent your injury case, we will also handle your property damage claim for you. This added value makes it so you never have to deal with insurance adjusters whose main goal is to low-ball you.
Through years of experience, our firm knows how to level the playing field and bring justice to the unfair advantage insurance companies often have over victims dealing with injuries and property damage.
Some law firms won’t handle property damage for their clients because these claims are almost always worth far less than bodily injury claims. We’re committed to helping you with every aspect of your case, including the damage done to your vehicle.
We want you to focus on recovering from your injuries, while we focus on fighting for the money you’re owed for your medical bills and car repair or replacement expenses.
