Accidents On The Interstate

Getting into a car wreck, whether on the Dixie Highway or a small side street, is a stressful, often physically painful, and always expensive event in a person’s life. When that accident happens in a different state from the one in which you’re licensed and insured, or involves a driver licensed in another state, trying to recover compensation can become even more complicated and stressful.

Rather than attempting to handle such a claim on your own, enlist experienced legal help in obtaining the damages you deserve. Contact the lawyers at the Slechter Law Firm for a consultation on your out-of-state accident claims.

Do Not Put Your Claims At Risk By Handling Them By Yourself

States vary as to whether they follow fault or no-fault rules on insurance coverage in accidents, as well as the mandatory amount of coverage. While Kentucky’s laws require a certain minimum amount of coverage for another driver’s injuries in a crash, those of Indiana are different.

Likewise, the laws regarding speed limits and distracted driving vary from state to state, and may also have an impact on a claim for damages. Additionally, there are the complexities of tracking down a driver who lives in a different state to serve them with a lawsuit. Even deciding on the state’s courts in which you can file a lawsuit for damages can be complex, and the state you choose may end up having an effect on how long you have to file a claim before the statute of limitations expires.

These are the sorts of challenges that even experienced attorneys may find challenging, let alone someone without legal experience.
