Best And Worst-Case Scenarios For Auto-Accident Legal Proceedings
Posted By: Anica Oaks on December 14, 2022 |
Considered to be some of the most complex legal proceedings, auto accident cases can quickly go one way or the other based on a variety of factors. When you suffer an auto accident, there will be many different scenarios you could possibly encounter along the way as your case plays out. To make sure you are prepared for both the good and the bad, here are some situations that may or may not happen regarding your auto accident case.
You Make Mistakes on Social Media
If you suffer serious injuries from your auto accident and are home recuperating, getting on social media will be very tempting. Unfortunately, you may be like other accident victims and post photos or comments about your accident and recovery that may derail your case. Insurance companies regularly monitor the social media activity of accident victims. Thus, one offhand comment or photo may put your case in legal jeopardy.
Police Agree with You
Whenever an auto accident takes place, police are usually called to the scene to investigate and file an accident report. After talking with you, the other driver, and any eyewitnesses to the accident, the police report may come down completely on your side about how the accident occurred.
If it does, chances are your auto accident attorney will use this to pressure an insurance company into settling out-of-court for a large amount of financial compensation.
Your Lawsuit is Filed Too Late
After an auto accident, you can't wait years and years before finally deciding to file your lawsuit. In almost all states, accident victims must file their auto accident lawsuit within 24 months from the date of the car wreck. Even if your injuries have left you permanently disabled and have changed your life forever, filing a lawsuit after the statute of limitations has expired in your state will get you nothing but having a judge dismiss your lawsuit in a matter of minutes.
You Settle Out-of-Court
When you suffer car accident injuries that are very severe, the last thing you want is to see your case be dragged out by a lengthy trial. If you work with an auto accident attorney who has extensive experience in this area of law, your case can often be settled outside a courtroom and for much more compensation than you anticipated. In doing so, you'll have the money needed to pay medical bills and replace your lost income.
By knowing the best and worst of what could happen with your auto accident case, you can listen to your lawyer's advice and have realistic expectations as to how your case may play out in the weeks ahead.
