Frequently Asked Questions

As long as you were not at fault for the accident, you can present a claim against the at fault person and their insurance.  You may still receive a ticket, but that is a separate legal matter.

The person who negligently injured you (or their insurance company) is ultimately responsible for all of the harm and loss caused.  They generally will not pay for medical treatment as you go, but rather make a one lump sum payment for bills after your treatment is done.  During the course of your treatment your own health insurance and / or automobile insurance may pay your bills, but will expect repayment when your case settles or goes to court.  Our attorney’s will help coordinate the payment of bills, and negotiate with all involved parties to minimize the amount of your settlement that goes to pay medical bills and liens.  This leaves more money in your pocket!

The person who hit you is responsible for the cost of fixing your car.  If the cost of repairs exceed the value of your car, your car is considered a total loss and you are entitled to the full value of the car.  Insurance companies don’t always properly consider the condition of your vehicle, recent repair work, or other factors that increase the value of your vehicle.  Ice Law Offices works with our clients to ensure they get their vehicles properly repaired, or replaced at their true, full value.

Not if you don’t want to go.  Most cases settle out of court between your lawyer and the insurance company.  If the insurance company won’t treat you fairly, then we will fight them all the way to the court house to get you a fair outcome.

The law allows you to recover for “Non-economic” damages.  Stated more plainly, you are entitled to money for your pain and suffering.  It is impossible to turn back the hands of time and prevent an accident from happening.  What Ice Law Offices can do is make sure you get enough money to make up for everything you have been through.

In one word, no.  While you have a duty to cooperate with your insurance company, never forget that the insurance adjuster’s job is to settle each claim for as little money as possible.  You may have rights under your own policy that can be prejudiced by talking to your insurance company too soon.  Talking to an insurance company, ANY insurance company, is like talking to the police, “Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law”.  It is best to talk to your company only when an Ice Law Offices lawyer is present with you.
