Insurance companies don’t have your best interests in mind. Talk to an attorney first!
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, the insurance company will undoubtedly approach you to make a settlement. Do not do this until you have spoken to an attorney! Here are some things you need to know about insurance companies:
- The medical bills you incur as a result of the car accident are usually not paid by the other party’s insurance as they come; instead they wait until all treatments are completed and then begin settlement negotiations at the end of your claim.
- The other party’s insurance is not obligated to pay for treatments that are considered unnecessary or inappropriate for the injury sustained.
- Insurance companies are in business to make a profit, therefore they may offer you a settlement that is much smaller than what you are owed. In general you should not settle for anything less than three times your medical expenses. This helps cover medical problems that may arise after the settlement.
You may be entitled to receive these damages in cases against insurance companies:
- General damages – both emotional and physical pain and suffering
- Special damages – property damage, lost wages, decreased earning capability, medical and other out-of-pocket expenses
- Loss of Consortium – loss of normal marital relations with your spouse
So how can you make sure you get the compensation you deserve?
