After being injured in a car accident, reporting your accident to the police and insurance company, and seeking any necessary medical attention it’s time to file a claim. At MG Law we walk you through the entire process and work to get you the settlement you deserve following an auto injury. There are two common types of claims you could file: a tort claim or an accident benefit claim. Both are designed to help you, but in very different ways.
While a tort claim addresses pain and suffering, an accident benefit claim helps if you are unable to perform your job the same way you did prior to being injured in a car accident. Take a look below for a simplified breakdown of what you can expect from each option.
