Personal injury lawyers usually only handle the parts of your case that deal with your injury from the accident: your medical care, tests, and loss of wages resulting from your injury. A personal injury case or claim only deals with injuries to your body, mind, or emotions – not your property. Many personal injury lawyers do not handle property damage claims unless the person has been injured as well. If only your vehicle was damaged in the accident, you don’t have a personal injury case, and should consider dealing directly with your insurance company and the other person’s insurance company. But be prepared to document your property damage carefully – take photos immediately following the accident. Let the insurance companies know that you have property damage and itemize it for them as soon as possible.
