Be Aware of the Underhanded Tactics of Insurance Companies
Insurance companies sometimes use underhanded tactics in immoral attempts to get you to waive your legal rights and sign off on settlements that are unfair and that will leave you destitute years down the road. You need to be aware of these tactics. You need a smart tough lawyer to protect you from insurance companies!
Although financial considerations, car repairs, and medical bills tend to dominate the thoughts of motor vehicle accident victims in the first few weeks following the incident (and insurance companies know this and try to exploit your need for quick cash), it is very important to remember that when you are a victim of a serious auto accident, there will be further consequences in the coming years that are likely to affect your future earning capabilities, as well as your physical and mental health. These effects can literally destroy your life if you are unprepared for them financially.
You can trust our law firm to hold the negligent driver and his insurance company fully responsible for the damages caused.
What Should I Do After an Accident?
A question that we frequently hear at our law firm is: “What Should I do After an Accident?” It is helpful to prepare for the worst possible situation and keep a copy of the following common sense suggestions in your glove box. The time immediately following an accident can be confusing. Some of the things that you should do immediately after an auto accident include:
