When you are injured in an accident, the main concern is getting the medical care you need. Unfortunately, medical bills will begin to roll in quickly and we know they can be costly. Most major injuries can see costs that rise into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Do you know if insurance will cover the total medical bill?
How can a family living paycheck-to-paycheck afford to cover even a portion of a $100,000 medical bill?
We also know that these are only the visible costs of an accident. Insurance companies never really consider the hidden costs of an accident. These can include any lost wages and benefit as well as long-term pain and suffering damages.
Why should a victim and their family have to suffer financially due to a mistake that someone else made?
There is no question that a qualified and experienced attorney can help you through this situation. First, they will sit with you and listen to your story. Then, they will chart a path forward. This includes helping you gather all necessary paperwork (police reports, medical records, video and photo evidence, etc.).
Your attorney will also handle insurance companies and other parties involved. Remember, insurance companies are not really there to make large settlements. They will fight having to do that, even if it means attempting to blame you for your own injuries. By securing an attorney, you are insulating yourself from that possibility.
