Why it’s Risky to Settle a Car Accident Lawsuit too Soon
Insurance companies will want to settle your case quickly for the least amount of money possible. Our goal is to see that you receive the full amount of financial compensation you deserve. It is wise to try and resolve your case when your medical treatment is complete and your doctor dismisses or releases you from medical care. Why? Some accident-related injuries do not become apparent for days, weeks or months following an accident. If you settle too soon and new accident-related injuries arise, you will not be compensated for those injuries.
Our first priority is to make sure you are receiving appropriate medical care. If not, we will try to assist you by recommending several reputable doctors and specialists who can address your specific condition. We will also assist you with the property damage portion of your case and work with your insurance company to get you a rental car until your vehicle is repaired or replaced.
We will thoroughly investigate the accident by gathering the police report, witness statements, photos and in some cases expert analysis of the scene and/or vehicles. We will then make a case for full compensation for your loss. If the insurance company and its lawyers fail to make a reasonable offer, we will take your case to court, where we have an impressive record of success.
