If you are unsure that you have a legitimate case, get the legal advice you deserve. Often times, car insurance companies will offer quick settlements that sound too good to be true. Most of the time they are too good to be true and there simply trying to mitigate their own damages instead of giving you the compensation that you need. This is a common tactic used by insurance companies around the country. By offering you a quick settlement, they are actually reducing the amount of your award but are relying on the fact that you need money right away. Regardless of the seriousness of your injuries, there is usually a ground for some sort of legal action. As an attorney practicing car accident law in Michigan for 30 years, I can help determine if you have a case against the auto insurance company.
Medical Costs Can Add Up Quickly
The majority of auto accidents are not life-threatening or extremely severe, but medical costs and other expenses can accumulate quickly regardless of the injuries. As you know, the expense related to the medical field can be cumbersome and hurt your financial position. While some injuries are obvious and easy to prove, many injuries are not quite so obvious. For example, certain types of spinal injuries and whiplash injuries will not show up during routine exams using an x-ray or MRI. Just because they are architect doesn’t mean they can cause you significant pain and require extensive medical treatment.
If you or someone you care about sustains an injury from non-mobile accident, be cautious of any settlements that your insurance company offers. You should also be careful about giving statements by phone, e-mail, or any other type of communication regarding your injuries. Even though you may think the statements are fine, they can easily be used to hurt your chances or lower your payment on a car accident claim.
