Were you involved in a car accident caused by someone else? Is the liability insurance company now requesting copies of your driving record? Have you ever been in a previous car accident? If you said “yes” to any of these questions, then you are already familiar with the stress and anxiety that can often accompany a car accident. During this stressful time, it is important that you understand how a good attorney can help alleviate the overwhelming feeling you may have. It may be smart for you to speak to one of our car accident lawyers as soon as possible. Our car accident lawyers at Kajioka & Associates Attorneys At Law are prepared to fight back against insurers who try to pin the blame on you. They often try to blame the accident on injured victims that have past accidents on their record.
When Should You Disclose Your Driving Record?
Do not try and hide anything. You will want to disclose all relevant information from the accident. You will also want to tell the attorney about any previous accidents and you want to do this as soon as you can. This is so we can be prepared for any information the liable insurance company might dig up on you. If we know it first this will help us be ready for whatever the insurance company throws at us.
Are You Obligated to Disclose Your Driving Record?
It will depend on what stage your claim is in. If you are still trying to negotiate a settlement with the insurance company, you may not be obligated to disclose any information unrelated to the car crash and injuries in question. However, if you have filed a lawsuit seeking compensation for damages, you may be required to disclose your driving record during the discovery process.
How Will Your Driving Record Affect Your Claim?
The insurance company will likely try to argue that your injuries from your current car accident are a result of a prior accident. And therefore, they shouldn’t be liable. Even though it can be more difficult to prove a case when you have preexisting injuries, it is not impossible. We can try to get you what you deserve. The insurance company may also claim you have a history of negligent driving. You do have the right to pursue compensation for an accident caused by someone else’s negligence. No matter your driving history, whether you have a DUI arrest or other marks against you, or an accident you have the right to get compensated.
