Auto accident victims often have four main questions on their minds after crashes:
- How serious are my injuries?
- How long will it take for me to recover?
- When can I go back to work?
- How will I afford the crash-related expenses?
The answers to the first three questions are best left up to medical professionals. However, the answer to the last question comes down to whether you have a lawyer on your side after the crash.
In many cases, insurance companies simply ignore victims, play phone tag with them, or even outright deny their claims before they get started. In other cases, insurers will appear to be extremely helpful and sympathetic right off the bat, and they may even offer victims seemingly substantial settlements without prompting.
In either situation, it’s important to have a lawyer on your side. An experienced Nashville auto accident attorney can help you get the attention and respect of the insurance company if they’re not giving you the time of day. And a lawyer can also help you determine whether the insurance company’s settlement offer is fair for your expenses and what you’ve gone through.
Without a lawyer in your corner, you may accept the insurance company’s offer only to later find out that it’s not nearly enough to pay for your medical bills and lost wages. And once you’ve accepted, you may be unable to pursue additional compensation. Don’t make that mistake, and don’t lose out on the money you deserve. Call Ponce Law today for a free consultation.
