Should I get "Full Tort" insurance coverage?
When you purchase your own auto insurance, people often seek “Full Coverage” not knowing what they are purchasing. Insurance selection can be complicated and frustrating. Full coverage refers to the minimum coverage that you must have to legally operate you car. This may include collision coverage to repair damage to the vehicle. Full coverage may legally allow you onto the road, but it doesn’t protect you if you are injured in an accident. You will be offered a selection of either Full or Limited Tort. This selection will determine whether you can recover for injuries when someone causes an accident which you are involved. Full Tort means full rights. Limited Tort gives you limited rights to legally pursue damages when you are injured in an accident that was someone else’s fault. Limited Tort fees are cheaper than Full Tort, but you MAY NOT sue the driver who caused your injuries for the pain, suffering and loss of quality of life they caused, unless it is deemed that you had a serious impairment of body function. It is ALWAYS better to chose FULL TORT to protect you and your family. Call us at Dethlefs Pykosh & Murphy if you would like to discuss your insurance coverages.
When injured in a motor vehicle accident that was not my fault, why should I call a lawyer?
The law allows you to recover damages to compensate you for your injuries. This is the way the law seeks to address the disruption to your life that the other driver caused. This means that the negligent driver must pay for the harm they caused. There are two forms of damages that can be awarded by a court:
1.Economic – reffering to such items as wage loss, bills incurred, etc.
2. non-economic- the pain suffering and loss of life’s pleasures and enjoyment while injured
An experienced personal injury attorney will navigate you through the process. The attorney will contact the adverse insurance company, collect all the important records, negotiate the value of the case, draft and file all legal papers and try to get the matter settled in the best terms for the client. If the case does not settle, the lawyer will present your case to the jury in court. The lawyer will try to maximize the calculation for the sum of money awarded to address your pain and suffering. If you do not file your claim within the appropriate time, you can risk losing the ability to sue. It is important to consult a personal inury lawyer as soon as possible. At Dethlefs Pykosh & Murphy we’re here to help you. We will be with you every step of the way and will work to get you the best settlement offer possible.
