Lawyers for Car Insurance Claims – What You Need to Know
An experienced car accident attorney knows that insurance companies often rush to contact victims of car crashes in order to get them to settle before they have learned the full extent of their injuries. As soon as they find out about the accident, the insurance company will begin to investigate your claim. They may try to contact you and ask you to sign papers while you are still in the hospital, or unable to return to your job.
Be sure to speak to a skilled car insurance lawyer before you sign any papers. Your team of car accident lawyers should be the only one to communicate with the insurance company. If an insurance adjuster contacts you, remember that person is on the job, not engaging in friendly banter. You must tell the insurance adjuster to speak to your attorney, not to you, in order to protect your claim.
Important Tip: Do Not Delay in Filing Your Car Accident Claim
Each case must follow the statute of limitations — the countdown clock ticking to the legal buzzer when a claim will no longer be admitted by the courts. Our proven car accident law firm would like the chance to help you before:
- Evidence disappears
- Witnesses forget what they saw or move away
- The time limit for filing your claim expires and you are barred from recovering any money for your injuries and losses
Common Car Accident FAQ's
- Stay at the scene
- Call 911 for help
- Call the police if there’s property damage but nobody is injured
- Get information from the other driver(s)
- Get names and contact info from any witnesses
- Take pictures and video (if you can, or have someone else do it)
- Speak to a car accident lawyer as soon as possible
- Print and keep a copy of our car accident checklist in the glove box of your vehicle.
- Contact the law enforcement office who wrote the report – The officers making the report will often give you a receipt or a business card that include the case or report number that you will submit to get your report. This is nearly always a paid service.
- Contact your insurance company – Sometimes the claims department will order a copy of the police report, and will provide a copy to injured parties, often for free.
- Third party online police report companies will often provide your police report for a fee.
As required by law, you must report a car accident to the DMV or authorities in these states by the listed deadline:
- Kentucky – 10 days after accident
- Indiana – Immediately
- Ohio – 6 months
If you are seeking to file a car insurance claim or begin a lawsuit to recover compensation for your damages and losses, you’ll need to pay attention to the deadlines, known as the statute of limitations in each state. For these states below, note the general deadlines for filing a car insurance injury claim:
- Kentucky – 1 year after accident
- Indiana – 2 years after accident
- Ohio – 2 years after accident
- Kentucky – No Fault state
- Indiana – At Fault State
- Ohio – At Fault State
Determining fault in an accident will depend on which state you live in. Some are no fault states, others are at fault states. Both refer to the kind of injury insurance coverages available and what benefits they will pay. This is referred to as known as Personal Injury Protection (PIP). No matter where the accident occurred, the steps are often similar:
- Get a police report
- Seek medical attention and follow doctor instructions
- Notify your insurance about the accident
- Speak with a car accident lawyer before the deadlines pass

Hi, I’m attorney Darryl Isaacs. I love the work I do, which is helping people who have been injured to get fair compensation. All my life I’ve wanted things to be fair. Unfortunately, when I grew up and started practicing law with my father, Sheldon Isaacs, I learned that when you trace the cause of an unfair situation, you usually find that it’s all about the money.

People pay car insurance premiums to protect themselves in the event of an accident. But all too often, folks find out the hard way that, though the insurance company expects you to pay your premiums on time, when you have a valid claim for a car accident injury, they will do everything they can to reduce or deny you a fair and just settlement.
I make it my job to make sure that my clients who have been injured receive fair settlements from insurance when they’ve been in auto accidents. This is my life’s work, to pursue justice for injured folks. If necessary, I will file a car accident lawsuit to make sure that justice is served.
Just last June, a family of five, a mother and her four children, were struck head-on by a driver that crossed the centerline on Ohio 13 near Dorsey Mill Road. Despite all the precautions you take while driving in the car with your children, you cannot control what other drivers do. When you have been in a serious accident caused by the negligence of another driver, it can turn your world upside down in an instant.
A Conversation All About Car Wrecks and Lawsuits
Attorney Darryl Isaacs sat down to address questions about Newark, Ohio car accidents and safety and legal action in a recent radio episode of “Ask The Hammer,” the podcast exploring the legal matters that matter most. Play the episode directly below.
A Car Accident Can Be Devastating, Traumatic and Expensive
Many people don’t like to make a big deal out of minor fender benders. For one thing, nobody wants to face bigger insurance premiums, so folks often choose to pay for minor damages out of pocket. But in a serious accident when there’s major property damage, injury and death, people need to know that insurance will have their back if they cannot work, have major hospital bills and need to provide for their family.
As soon as a car insurance company learns that there’s been a major accident with serious injuries and death, they send out a team of skilled accident scene investigators. These insurance investigators are not there to objectively assess the situation and find out what caused the accident. They are there to point the blame away from their client and control the amount of money they will have to pay to settle a big claim.
We Employ Personal Injury Lawyers Who Worked for Insurance Defense
Isaacs & Isaacs has our own team of seasoned investigators that we send out immediately when there’s been a major crash. We are there to protect your interests, and our experienced and aggressive attorneys and other legal pros will:
- Gather evidence at the scene of the crash
- Talk to witnesses and get their contact info
- Protect our client(s) from the insurance people
We have attorneys working for us who used to work for the other side in insurance defense. We are well aware of the tactics they sometimes use, including pointing police away from evidence that indicates their client caused the accident and towards any evidence that may implicate the other driver(s). The truth is, in most accidents involving human error, there’s more than one party at least partly at fault. But a lot of times insurance companies don’t want to be fair, they just want to rake in the premiums without paying out money in claims.
In some cases, the insurance company will offer you a settlement fast, because they’re nervous about how much your injury claim will cost in the long run. In exchange for the settlement, they will ask you to sign a release from liability form. Don’t sign anything without talking to an experienced accident attorney.
If you sign a release of liability, you will be signing away your right to be compensated in the future if your injury proves to be more serious than you thought. With some injuries like traumatic brain injury, you won’t know how badly you’re hurt until days, weeks and even months after the crash. When you sign a release of liability form, you cannot be compensated from either the liable party’s insurance or your own. This is because your insurance company counts on collecting any compensation they pay you for the accident injuries from the liable party’s insurance carrier.
Filing a Car Crash Lawsuit
With some major crashes, insurance will not cover the cost of major injuries or death. We will file a lawsuit if necessary to recover just compensation for:
- Medical bills, past and future
- Lost wages, past and future
- Around-the-clock nursing care
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Wrongful death
We have your back with the insurance company and with third parties such as automobile parts manufacturers who may be held strictly liable for malfunctioning parts such as faulty airbags and brakes.
