Deltona, FL asked in Car Accidents for Florida

Q: My car was totaled in an accident and I think my tie rods must have failed. What can I do to prove this?

The insurance company did pay for my injuries but my pip didn't cover it. Also, the insurance company doesn't want to pay me what my car was worth. What can I do about all of this?

A: You can consult with and retain an attorney who deals with insurance claims. The attorney should be able to do this on a contingency basis, which means you don't pay the attorney up front, but if you recover additional money, the attorney receives a portion of that.

A: How you probably are going to need an expert to examine the tie rods- I don’t know if it’s a mechanical issue or a metal failure or what? But so I need to examine it and I would also take a look and see if there’s been any recalls on the particular vehicle that you were involved in the accident with. I hope you’re OK, Spencer
