The Insurance Company is Arguing About My Injuries. What Do I Do?
When you suffer injuries due to an automobile accident, there is little doubt you will need medical care now and in the future. In addition to this, you will likely experience a period of lost wages due to your inability to work, along with tremendous pain and suffering. However, even though you know you are injured and have had your injuries verified by doctors, the insurance company for the party responsible for your injuries is disputing their seriousness. If you find yourself in this situation, now is not the time to go it alone and fight the insurance company by yourself. Instead, contact a personal injury lawyer who has the skills, knowledge, and experience necessary to protect your rights, and force those responsible for your injuries to accept responsibility for their negligence.
Why Dispute My Injuries?
Because insurance companies are not on your side during a personal injury case, they have multiple reasons to dispute your injuries. Of course, the main reason is to settle your claim for as little money as possible, or in some cases to convince you the accident was your fault and pay you nothing for your injuries. Along with these reasons, insurance companies may claim you already had a preexisting condition, thereby negating any new injuries you claim to have suffered in the accident. In these cases, if an insurance adjuster can convince you the claim you have filed is invalid, they will save their company thousands or even millions of dollars. When you find yourself facing a situation such as this, let a personal injury lawyer stand between you and the insurance company in order to help you receive the compensation you truly deserve.
Use a Free Consultation
When an insurance company is putting pressure on you to say your injuries are not as serious as your doctors are stating, take advantage of the free consultation offered by personal injury lawyers. By doing so, you’ll not only be able to explain your side of the story to an attorney who truly cares about you and your situation, but you’ll be able to do so for free. During this consultation, you can not only explain your side of the story, but also have any questions you may have answered. And to make the process easier, bring any documentation about your injuries to this meeting. Along with answering questions and learning about the legal process pertaining to these cases, you will get a fair and reasonable evaluation of the circumstances surrounding your case. Even though these cases can be very complex, your personal injury lawyer will be able to explain everything in easy-to-understand terms that will let you make an informed decision based solely on the facts and nothing more.
Meeting Their Obligation
Even though they will not want to admit it, insurance companies know they have an obligation to you when you get hurt. However, getting them to meet that obligation may be easier said than done in some circumstances. Despite their best efforts to dispute your injuries and attempt to pay little or nothing, an experienced personal injury lawyer can help you win your case and receive the compensation necessary to pay present as well as future expenses. To show how dedicated these lawyers are to their clients, they work on a no-fee basis, meaning they get nothing unless they win their client’s case. By adopting this policy, they can work with many victims who may otherwise not be in a position financially to pursue the justice owed to them. However, this lets them take on the most complex personal injury cases and see them through until the case is won.
