Anyone who has ever received a medical bill knows how expensive they can be, especially after a car accident. It’s important to reach out to a car accident lawyer as soon as you can after your accident to discuss your legal options.
John Foy & Associates has personal injury lawyers in College Park ready to help you fight for the compensation you deserve. Our team can help you pay for those high medical bills, lost wages, car repairs and much more with an insurance claim or lawsuit.
What Our Team Will Do for You
Our foremost goal is to help you achieve the goal of getting compensated after your car accident. Many people are reluctant to hire an attorney because they think insurance companies will give them money out of a sense of fairness and legality.
Unfortunately, insurance companies are for-profit businesses and will try to pay as little as legally possible. They have many tricks to do this, from leading questions in interviews, putting pressure on you to settle fast, delaying your case to run out your savings, and disputing your claim.
A car accident lawyer knows these tactics and how to counter them so that you’re not victimized further. Think of it this way. They have huge teams of lawyers on their side. Why should you not have one to defend your own interests? Our College Park car accident lawyers will defend you.

How do I Get Compensation After My Car Accident?
There are two ways to get compensation through the legal system after your car accident. The first is through the responsible party’s insurance company via their contract. The second is through filing a lawsuit to take them to court.
The amount of money you can receive from your accident depends on the evidence of your case. At a minimum, you should be able to get compensation for any cost that has a bill or any lost income from work, but you could be eligible for much more.
Money cannot solve every problem you may have after an accident, but it can help you avoid the financial burdens of the costs and give you access to medical care that can improve the quality of your life.
Should I Call the Insurance Company First?
No. The order of people you should call immediately after an accident are the police, then a doctor, and then a College Park car accident attorney. If you speak to an insurance company one-on-one, you are at a disadvantage.
By calling a lawyer before the insurance company, you can have an expert on your side who can do the talking for you. We know how to negotiate with insurance companies to push them into the fairest settlement possible.
Our great advantage is that we know how to take them to court and they know we can win because of our legal knowledge. The court may make the insurance company pay far more than they’re willing to pay. This makes them more likely to settle. Plus, they know we’ll make due on our legal threat if they don’t.
How Much Money Could I Receive?
Until we know the details of your case, this is an impossible question to answer. After we know those details, we will fight for a fair settlement under the law based on the evidence, and also fight for all potential damages you’re eligible to receive.When we approach the insurance company with your claim, we will have a thorough documentation of all your costs and present a persuasive argument for future costs, lost wages, and non-economic damages.
At your consultation, we may give you an estimate based on previous cases with similar claims. However, this is only an estimate until we can get the full picture of your case.
Will I Have to Go to Court for My Car Accident?
It’s rare that you’ll have to go to court for your car accident. Nearly all accident cases end up in a settlement rather than a trial. Yet sometimes, the insurance company will not budge. If this is the case, we will assess your chances of success, tell you the pros and cons, and let you decide whether to proceed.
Thanks to the investigation and strong case building we do, most times the insurance company knows they won’t have a chance at trial. We gather police reports, medical evaluations, witness statements, and more to build a full picture of your situation.
If you do have to go to trial, you may not have to appear in the courtroom. We can take a deposition and then fight on your behalf at court while you recover at home.
