Our Office's Traffic Accident Response-Three Strengths
Bargaining power over insurance companies
When you are involved in a car accident, you will have to negotiate with the insurance company representative over the amount of compensation.
On the other hand, the general public does not encounter accidents on a daily basis, so you don't know how to negotiate when you become victims.
As a result, insurance companies will force the terms and conditions favorable to them.
Lawyers can solve this problem. Lawyers with a wealth of legal expertise and know-how in traffic accidents can negotiate more than equal with the insurance representative. In addition, all negotiations are handled by lawyers, which greatly reduces anxiety and stress after an accident. Please consider using a lawyer.
Smooth Acquisition of Grade of Disability Grade
If a car accident leaves you with permanent injuries, you will get a permanent disability rating. This rating can have a significant impact on the amount of compensation you receive, so it is very important for accident victims to obtain the proper rating approval.
The time to get a permanent disability rating is when the symptoms of your permanent injury have been found to be fixed by examination after proper treatment of your car accident injuries.
The doctor will prepare a diagnosis of residual disability and grade the patient according to the results of the examination. However, many doctors are not well versed in the procedures for awarding a grade of residual disability, and as a result, it is not uncommon for them to fail to award a proper grade.
The attorneys at Haruka Law Offices have extensive knowledge of the procedures and medical knowledge in dealing with traffic accidents, so we can support you in obtaining a proper certification by checking the diagnosis of residual disability prepared by a doctor.
High-level support system that shares the know-how of all branches
High-level support system Legal Profession Corporation has branches in each area (Aomori, Mito, Utsunomiya, Nagano, and Matsuyama) centered on the Tokyo Headquarters.
The know-how and details of all branches that have been cultivated in response to traffic accidents are always shared in real time, enabling us to respond swiftly to complex traffic accidents at a high level even when they arise.
This will minimize the burden on the traffic accident victims and their families and allow them to concentrate on treatment with peace of mind.
From negotiating settlement and compensation amounts with insurance companies, to preventing the termination of medical bills, to assisting victims in obtaining proper disability ratings, and even litigation in court, we are here to help alleviate the stress that accident victims suffer in the community.
If the lawyer does not negotiate, will the amount of compensation not be increased?
An attorney can negotiate with the assumption that your case will proceed to trial, depending on the outcome of the discussion. For this reason, it is possible to obtain compensation that is not favorable to the insurance company, but rather one that is aware of the court's standards.
If the average person negotiates on his or her own, this kind of negotiation is unlikely to be possible. Even when attorney fees are included, negotiations with an attorney can bring out a much more favorable outcome for car accident victims.
Three compensation standards for traffic accidents
Automobile liability insurance standards
Automobile liability insurance is a compulsory insurance policy that requires drivers to purchase.
Automobile liability insurance standards compensation is based on the amount paid by the automobile liability insurance and is set at the lowest level as imagined. Many insurers try to talk about the Automobile liability insurance standards's compensation as a settlement.
If you settle the settlement without knowing anything about the insurance company, you will be able to reduce the amount of compensation that you would otherwise receive.
Voluntary insurance standards
Voluntary insurance standards sets the amount of compensation based on its own payment standards.
As an image, it would be good to think that the amount is increased somewhat by the amount approaching the Automobile liability insurance standards.
In other words, even if an insurer has offered to pay damages at the upper limit of its Voluntary insurance standards, it is still generally lower than the amount of damages that can be awarded in court.
Therefore, even in Voluntary insurance standards cases, settlement should not be easily reached.
Court standards is based on the expected amount of the trial.
This is an objective amount of compensation that can be derived by a court decision, so it is considered to be the most reasonable and fair standard amount.
Incidentally, the amount of this Court standards is not binding on the courts, and there are cases in which the amount of compensation is increased.
Proposed out-of-court settlements of insurers are usually made in Automobile liability insurance standards or Voluntary insurance standards
The insurance company is trying to reduce the payment of damages to as much as possible.
For this reason, we first present the amount to be paid based on the automobile liability insurance standard, and if it is difficult to do so, we will present the compensation at the Voluntary insurance standards and try to summarize the discussion.
However, in some cases, a trial may result in more than twice as much compensation as the Voluntary insurance standards.
So, simply, can the general public say, "Then we will fight in court? Unfortunately, this is not very effective?
Because if you are really ready to sue, you should have negotiated on your behalf.
If the lawyer negotiates directly, it is inevitable to imagine the development of a trial without settlement.
As a result, the person in charge of the insurance company has to adjust to settle the settlement by raising the payment amount before it is brought to court.
There is a possibility that even without a trial, it will be possible to realize the payment of compensation that is in fact equivalent to the Court standards by negotiation alone.
Benefits of asking lawyers for traffic accidents
Increase in the amount of compensation
The amount of indemnity offered by the insurer in the Voluntary insurance standards can be said to have been slightly added to the Automobile liability insurance standards.
If you ask a lawyer, you will be able to negotiate with a "Court standards" that is more than twice the amount of compensation offered by the insurer, making it more likely that you will be able to withdraw a large amount of compensation.
Strong bargaining power with insurance companies
Please think it is very difficult for the public to negotiate with the person in charge at the insurance company to obtain favorable conditions.
Lawyers will be the agent of the Client and will be in charge of negotiations on behalf of the Client.
You can feel relieved by avoiding stress on the response of the insurance company.
Negotiations to prevent the discontinuation of treatment
The payment period for medical treatment and leave compensation to help victims of a traffic accident is usually terminated within three to six months.
Even with such an insurance company setting, lawyers can negotiate to prevent the termination.
Acquisition of appropriate aftereffects grade certification
In order to obtain an appropriate aftereffects grade certification, not only medical knowledge but also strict judgment about the accident and complicated procedural work must be done.
Supported by attorneys familiar with the procedures, you can smoothly obtain an appropriate aftereffects grade.
