How Will You Make Ends Meet in O’Fallon, Missouri?
Car accidents are jarring enough to your central nervous system, but accidents can also cause severe mental and physical injuries that take weeks, months, or years to recover from. Few people walk away from these kinds of car accidents unscathed; you may require some time off of work, which may decrease or eliminate your income. Furthermore, you may need to see doctors and physical therapists in addition to any prescriptions for pain management medication. All of this costs money, of course, and with all of your medical bills piling up and your absence from work makes it that much more difficult to make ends meet. That is one reason that it is so important that you take action now. Help make life easier for yourself and your family by calling to schedule a discussion with an experienced attorney regarding your case today.
Don’t Make Any Unnecessary Statements to Insurance Companies
When we first meet with a future client, one of the first things we advise them of is to refrain from making any kind of statement, whether it is to a law enforcement official, another driver, emergency medical technician, or anyone from an insurance agency (yours or the other driver’s). Although you may intend it as a casual nicety, saying “I’m sorry about your injuries” may be used as evidence in court that you believed you were to blame for the accident that caused someone else’s injuries.
Another reason you may not want to speak with an insurance agent too soon (other than to report the accident and your injuries, if any) is because they may propose and try to coerce you into accepting a settlement. While it might be tempting to accept their offer, it will most likely not be sufficient money for you now and into the future; furthermore, it isn’t what you deserve. Their offer will be much lower than what you may get when you take your case to court; the insurance agency wants to protect themselves – they have their own best interest in mind, not yours – so they will offer a quick and easy settlement, hoping that you will accept it and the case will resolve quickly and easily, for as little money as possible.
