How Can A Lawyer Help With My Insurance Claim?
Not many people realize that having a lawyer on your side is still important when dealing with insurance companies. Insurers are running a business, and they have their own pocketbooks to think about. Most insurance agents make a low offer hoping to close the case quickly. But these settlements usually fail to compensate victims for the many expenses associated with their injuries.
When working with a lawyer, you will have someone on your side who understands the system and has a great deal of experience maximizing compensation from insurance claims. Agents know that lawyers will recognize when their clients are being cheated out of a fair settlement, making your insurance claim much more efficient and helping you get a reasonable offer.
When Is Bringing A Lawsuit Appropriate?
Sometimes, settling a claim with the insurance company is not enough. Insurance agents often overlook non-economic damages such as emotional distress or disfigurement. In some cases, catastrophic injuries cost a person for years as they can’t return to work doing the job they previously held.
Every case is unique, and your lawyer will go over the details of your situation to help determine whether you have a valid personal injury claim. Personal injury attorneys only get paid if they win, so your attorney should be honest about whether you have a good chance of winning. Call today to learn more about how we can help.
What Compensation May I Receive For My Injuries?
Victims of car crash injuries are entitled to compensation for the wide range of damage done in the crash, including:
- Property damage
- Past and future medical costs
- Doctor’s visits
- Hospital fees
- Ambulance charges
- Surgical procedures
- Specialist’s visits, including chiropractors
- Medical equipment, such as a wheelchair
- Home improvements to allow for disabilities associated with the wreck
- Lost time at work
- Lost bonuses and vacations
- Lowered income-earning ability
- Emotional distress
- Mental trauma, including PTSD, depression, and anxiety
- Psychiatric treatment costs
- Catastrophic injuries
- Loss of consortium if the victim was your spouse
- Wrongful death
- Punitive damages if the at-fault party engaged in criminal behavior
Insurance claims typically do not cover this wide range of compensation, and most victims don’t even realize the extent of the damage done in the crash. However, ignoring the many costs of your injuries can lead to an empty bank account and calls from the collection company. Many victims even lose their homes because of the debt incurred from their injuries. Don’t risk your family’s financial well-being. Hire our law firm to get the compensation you deserve.
