Hopefully, you will never have an automobile accident or get injured by another accident visiting the Netherlands or the Netherlands Antilles.
But when an accident happens, the victim isn’t compensated automatically. Many things must happen in order for the victim or victim’s family to receive fair compensation.
If and when you are involved, you should be aware of the proper steps to take.
Victims of negligence, accidents, defective products and medical malpractice sometimes assume that if they do nothing, someone will fairly compensate them for their medical bills, lost income and pain, trauma and permanent impairment to their bodies. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The truth is that the victim, and an experienced legal expert must be immediately and constantly at work, taking action to protect the victim’s rights and start the process to recover compensation.
For example, Evidence must be collected, from the accident scene, from medical experts, from hospitals. Every day you delay usually results in some of the evidence fading away, disappearing, etc.
Witnesses must be found and deposed. Every day you delay can result in loss of memory, witnesses moving away so you can’t reach them, witnesses influenced by talking with agents of the insurance company, etc.
The source of your future damages must be ascertained — a negligent individual or business with funds available, insurance companies with coverage of this situation. Just determining the insurance coverage is a major effort, requiring years of experience to do well and completely.
The law covering the accident, malpractice etc. must be researched carefully. Almost every case we see is slightly different, sometimes very different from the “typical” case. Will those differences make a difference in liability of other parties and the insurance coverage?
They might — that’s why you need a legal expert on your side.
Your claim must be filed on time, and responses to legal documents of other parties must be answered in a legally correct manner. If you don’t, you may lose all your rights,
