Be Cautious When Speaking With Insurance Companies After Your Accident
Injuries suffered in a car accidents are not always immediately visible or obvious. In fact, some injuries like brain, neck and back injuries may not show up for days, weeks or even months after an accident. This is why it is crucial to get an immediate and thorough analysis of your medical situation, right after the accident. Once we understand what type of injury you have we can assess the path of care: how much the injury will cost you in terms of medical bills, lost wages and accommodations that must be made should you need long-term care. It doesn’t matter if you were in a fender-bender with whiplash injuries, a serious car or truck accident or if your loved one was in fatal wreck. I will help you. I will call in the experts and professionals needed and get you the compensation you need.
Remember, insurance adjusters work for the insurance company. Their job is to get cases dismissed or pay as little as possible. An adjuster may contact you a few days after the accident to obtain a recorded statement about your condition and who was at fault. You do not have to provide these statements! Any statement you make could be used against your case. If you are contacted by an adjuster tell them you have no statement and call an experienced personal injury attorney for representation.
Speak with me first to determine how best to proceed. Even if you do not feel hurt today, you could end up needing medical treatment later.
