The Dangers of Handling Your Claim Alone
Some car accident victims so desperately want to put the nightmare of their collision behind them that they try to handle their claims themselves. This is called pro se representation, and we strongly advise against this course of action.
An insurance company may try to get you to settle your case for less money than it is worth. They may also try to use the statements you give them to reduce or deny your claim.
If an insurance company offers you a settlement offer after your accident, we urge you to call Sevenish Law Firm, P.C. for a free consultation before accepting. We can discuss the full value of your damages and your legal options to pursue compensation.

Determining the Cause and Culprit of Your Car Accident
A driver who acted negligently and caused your car accident may be liable for your injuries. Driver negligence takes many forms, including:
- Driving while distracted
- Driving while intoxicated or while under the influence
- Driving while drowsy
- Failure to yield right of way
- Road rage
- Unsafe lane changes
- Reckless driving
- Incorrect lane changes
- And more
Determining the cause of your accident will help our team identify who is at fault for your accident—whether it is another driver, a municipality, or a manufacturer. We will thoroughly investigate your accident using police reports, witness testimony, photos and surveillance video of the scene, and other evidence to solidify who is responsible for your injury.
Establishing Liability in a Car Accident Case
Once we have identified who caused your accident, our legal team will embark on the process of establishing their liability by proving the core criteria of a personal injury case. We will attempt to prove:
- Duty of care: the defendant had a duty to behave in a way that would keep you safe from harm or injury.
- Breach of duty: the defendant, through either action or inaction, failed to fulfill their duty of care.
- Causation: this violation of duty caused the car accident that caused your injury.
- Damages: you suffered physical, emotional, and financial damages as a result of the accident.
We can use evidence gathered in our investigation, as well as any necessary testimony from experts in the fields of medicine, occupational health, or accident reconstruction, to establish the above arguments.

The final list of damages in your case will reflect the unique details of your accident, injuries, job, and so on, so it is difficult to say what you might recover from an insurance settlement or jury award without a direct consultation.
Working on Your Settlement
Our next step will be to present a demand letter to the insurance company. If they come back with a counteroffer, the negotiation process commences. If the insurer fails to agree to what we consider to be a fair settlement, we will happily file a lawsuit on your behalf and take the matter to court.
