Yes. Although an injury may seem minor, pain can worsen as time goes by. Even a minor injury can result in missed work, medical bills, and physical problems later in life. Filing a claim can protect you from hardships that may occur later but are a direct result from the accident. Always call the Modesitt Law Firm to assess your accident and options.

There are time limits for making claims and if you wait too long and the deadline passes, your claim will be barred. It’s important that you get legal advice promptly. The longer you wait, the harder it can be to find witnesses and to gather evidence which can reduce or even prevent your compensation.
Do not take the money. It is extremely important for accident victims to have a lawyer's help when an insurance adjuster is trying to settle the case. In most cases, the full extent of many injuries is not known for some time until after the accident. It is also important to have the experience and expertise of an attorney to help you evaluate your potential losses. If you sign away your rights now, you may discover later that your injuries and losses were far worse than what you originally thought. Adjusters work for the insurance company...NOT FOR YOU...and their job is to pay you as little as possible.
Yes, in most cases and in almost every state, accident victims can recover money even if they are partly to blame for the accident.
Yes. In most cases your own insurance may pay you benefits even if the driver who hit you has no insurance.
Most injury claims are handled on a contingent fee basis. At Modesitt Law Firm, you don't pay anything if we don't win your personal injury case.
