“Merrily we roll along, roll along, roll along, Merrily we roll a——-“
Life happens, and in an instant, without expecting it, you can be blindsided by a reckless driver. You stumble out of the car, checking yourself to make sure you are bleeding from any holes. Next you make your way over to the other car to find the driver crying with her hands in her face. She’s okay, but obviously shaken up. You call 911 and the ambulance takes you to the hospital for X-rays, evaluations, and a CAT Scan.
Days later your head and spine still hurt. Your car is totaled, but the insurance company is only telling you they will give you a couple thousand to replace it. What do you do?
That’s where having the right attorney becomes very important. Insurance companies are in the business of paying out money … that’s a bit of an overstatement, but not much. Unfortunately, an insurance company often thinks their own best financial interest is to pay out as little money as possible. If you are injured in an accident, they may want to pay you nothing.
The right attorney can guide you through the process of advocating with the insurance company to pay for your actual medical expenses and the cost of putting your life back together.
Call us as soon as you can after a serious injury. What you do in the first few days can make all the difference. One of the biggest keys is to make sure you are documenting your injury and ongoing pain with medical reports. That means you need to see medical doctors and chiropractic doctors. Insurance companies aren’t just going to take your word for it that you have been hurt.
