After an auto accident insurance companies will jump at the opportunity to settle your claim fast. They will entice you by offering to pay for your emergency medical bills and maybe little extra for your troubles. How generous of them, right? No, not even close. They know that if they settle a claim fast they will be walking away with a huge win. That’s because a fair settlement can be five times, or more, than what they’ll offer. Their goal is to settle an auto accident claim fast and cheap.
After suffering personal injuries due to an auto accident, you have a right to recover for your damages. That includes your actual damages, future damages, and non-economic damages (pain and suffering, mental anguish, etc.). Getting only your emergency medical bills covered will not even come close to a fair settlement.
Emergency care is interested in your right there and now, not your future well being. Many times, an emergency room center will release you as long as you’re able to walk out (or roll out). Your long term health is not a priority and it's overlooked. That is because the full extent of injuries suffered after a car accident are not easily diagnosed. The insurance companies, however, do not concern themselves with this truth. Their concern is the bottom line not your future health.
So, what happens to that personal injury that is not cared for? That injury will worsen over time to the point that it may force you to stay in bed. Do you think the insurance companies are going to come and rescue you? Good luck with that. You’re not their problem at that point. You’ll be out of luck with no recourse.
Your future health is at stake after an auto accident. If you don’t take care of your injuries soon they will worsen. If you wait to file a claim you will also weaken or completely lose your valid claim. An experienced personal injury attorney will help you get the care you need and the settlement you deserve. Don’t get tricked by insurance companies trying to sell your claim short. Trust an experienced attorney that is looking out for your future health and well-being.
