How Personal Injury Attorneys Can Help
A serious injury from a car or truck accident can cause a serious disruption in your life. If you are hospitalized, you may miss several days from work or even be unable to return to work due to a permanent disability. Losing your income only increases your stress about how you are going to pay for all of those medical bills. All the while you have to live with pain and suffering because a careless driver did not pay enough attention on the road.
There is a way to overcome this unfair situation, but you cannot do it alone. You may be entitled to recover compensation for present and future medical expenses, including rehabilitation, as well as compensation for lost income to make up for time you missed from work, or if you became disabled from working or can now only work at a diminished earning capacity compared with before the accident. You may also be able to recover compensation for your pain and suffering which was caused because of the negligence of another. How much compensation you can receive, and the process you need to go through to get it, depends upon several factors, including the type and amount of insurance coverage you and the other driver were carrying.
Assuming the other driver was insured, the negligent driver’s insurance company may offer you a quick cash settlement to cover your medical expenses and property damage. This offer, however, does not take into account any of your long-term medical needs or loss of future income and is a far cry from what your claim is actually worth. The only time an insurance company offers a fair settlement amount is when they know you are represented by an attorney who will take the case to court if necessary and who has a record of success at trial.
