Are insurance providers really on my side after a car accident?

On Behalf of | Feb 1, 2021 | Car Accidents

Serious injuries from car accidents often require serious compensation to cover the costs. Insurance companies often present themselves as a “family” that takes care of their own, but when the cost of recovering from an accident can be thousands of dollars or more, can you trust that they provide you with the best possible outcome?

Who is on your side

Insurance companies do not often tell people that they are a business like any other: Their primary goal is to make money. This means that when it is time to offer a settlement for your injuries, they are more than likely to present you with a lowball settlement.

An insurance company may only offer compensation based on what you have already paid in medical expenses and nothing else. Your compensation should accurately reflect the medical costs that you have already experienced, any future medical expenses from your injury, the income you lost during recovery, pain and suffering, and many other factors.

Compensation negotiation is where you can count on a personal injury attorney to defend you. An experienced personal injury attorney can review your unique situation to determine what a fair value for your compensation should be and then fiercely negotiate to maximize the compensation you actually earn.

Someone you can count on

Insurance companies may also try to convince you that lawyers only slow things down and delay you from getting the compensation you need. Do not let them fool you into settling for less than you deserve from your personal injury compensation.

If the insurance company has already offered you a settlement, it is still not too late to get the help of a personal injury attorney. No matter where you are in your personal injury claim, make sure you have an attorney that you can trust on your side.
