America is considered one of the countries in the world that has a high number of personal and commercial vehicles per capita. Ordinary Americans know that driving a vehicle without an insurance certificate is fraught with criminal penalties and hefty fines. Emigrants who have come from abroad to the United States today also have a fleet of cars in their households. Some Russian immigrants have 2-3 or more cars. As a rule, each adult member of an immigrant family has his or her own car. Car accidents, which state authorities are struggling with, unfortunately are not decreasing, but are growing exponentially. Despite this, the number of new highways is growing and existing roads are being improved. Emigrants have a unique opportunity to protect their rights and interests related to auto accidents. Dtp America provides comprehensive assistance to emigrants on all issues related to the consequences of car accidents.

What to consider when drafting a claim
There is an important stipulation in each state. Claims must be filed at a strictly designated time. Generally, the time for filing claims takes anywhere from 1 year to 4 years. In some states, the statute of limitations is as long as 6 years. Medical expenses are reimbursed both on the basis of medical treatment and future rehabilitation and recovery costs. An important point for all parties involved in a car accident, even if they do not have an injury. Within 14 days of the accident, you must go to any medical facility to document your medical condition. In the future, if you develop complications, you may be able to receive compensation based on seeing a doctor immediately after the accident.
The person involved in the accident must have insurance coverage, according to those criteria governed by the laws of the state where the car accident occurred.
If the person involved in the accident does not have insurance, but is injured, such as a passenger, bicyclist, or pedestrian, they are also entitled to compensation and accident benefits.
If a motor vehicle accident results in the death of a person, the relatives or other person who was living with the deceased person may receive compensation payments.
Most states have a system for determining the modified degree of fault of the person involved in the accident. If your fault is up to 50%, you may receive compensation from the remaining equal portion of the amount claimed. If the modified degree of fault is more than 50%, then the amount of compensation payments is zero. To check the validity of the calculation of the degree of fault, engage an experienced attorney. If the cause of the accident was the fault of the state authorities, the injured emigrant may receive compensation payments from the federal government.
