You want to make sure that you are protected and that your rights are protected. Anytime there is a settlement from your insurance company or another insurance company, a lot of times, they will always lowball you, they will try and get you to accept settlements for amounts that are less or even waive your right to settlements or compensation when you actually are entitled to some compensation. You always, before you ever sign a document or even do a phone interview with an insurance company, you definitely want to speak with an attorney, know your rights because you could say something that you mean in a different fashion that can hurt you later at trial if the matter ever went to a trial. You always want to be represented so you know your rights and that your rights are protected.
What Sets Your Firm Apart In Handling Uninsured Motorist and Hit and Run Cases?
Our firm has spent sixteen plus years working on these types of cases. We have done small and minor whiplash cases to an individual who is paralyzed from being rear-ended by a semi-tractor trailer. I can tell you that we have seen a lot of different things. We have seen surgeries, broken ankles; we have seen someone who was paralyzed from a simple minor whiplash accident. We know what type of injuries you can sustain in accidents; we know what types of insurance coverages will cover things and what they will not cover. Sometimes people think, “I could just go to a doctor until I feel better” and that is not always the case.
If you have a minor back sprain or strain and there is no actual break or anything like that, it is going to be hard to get you a huge settlement because the injuries are relatively minor and you just cannot get medical treatment and see a chiropractor or a physical therapist for two years straight. The insurance company will deem it to be unreasonable. You definitely want to consult with our firm to make sure that you are getting the proper treatment and not going to the doctor for unexpected treatments that are not needed, when in reality you are going to end up having to pay for all these visits. So, simply going to a doctor is not going to necessarily increase your pain and suffering award.
