Insurance companies make money by saving money.
If you have been severely injured in an accident, having insurance may be the only way to guarantee that you are made “whole” again. Unfortunately, insurance companies care much more about their own pockets than your overall well-being and injuries. Insurance companies make their money by trying to only pay out the bare minimums on their policies. Oftentimes, these minimum and low payouts are not enough to properly compensate you fully for your medical bills and pain and suffering. Keep the tips in mind below to make sure you are adequately compensated and get what you deserve.
Be careful what you say to the insurance company.
You have no legal obligation to answer a question about your car accident if you don’t know or are unsure of the facts. In fact, it is very important to make sure you contact a lawyer so that you understand all of the questions being asked. Any recorded statements can always be used against you. Let our experienced personal injury attorneys at Razavi Law Group deal with the insurance company so that you don’t have to.
Don’t sign any contracts or release waivers until you speak to an attorney.
Your attorney has an ethical obligation to have your best interest in mind and zealously advocate on your behalf. Unfortunately, the same usually cannot be said for an insurance company. They are in the business of making money, not cutting checks. Getting into an accident is always stressful, so make sure you don’t sign anything from the insurance company until you understand exactly what it is. An experienced attorney can make sure you aren’t signing away any of your rights and can go over with you all the confusing paperwork that you receive from them.
Make sure you are open and transparent with your doctor about all of your injuries.
It’s often for too easy for people just to focus on the biggest injury that they suffered and lose track of or forget about the smaller injuries. If you were injured in a car accident, your number one priority should be to get better and to heal as quickly as possible. The best way to do so is to keep an open line of communication with your doctors and let them know everything that you are feeling. Doing so will make sure you get the correct treatment plan.
Hire an experienced attorney
An experienced personal injury attorney can help you get what you deserve and help you navigate the complex legal system. We at Razavi Law Group understand the games that insurance companies can try to play to give you an unreasonably low offer, or an offer that doesn’t properly restore you to who you were before the accident. Insurance companies understand that if a person has an attorney by their side, they won’t be easily taken advantage of and will be much more hesitant to give a low settlement, since the outcome may be a lawsuit.
Act fast, as the old saying goes, “time is money.”
There are strict time limits when it comes to filing a personal injury lawsuit and these laws vary from state to state. Get someone in your corner that will fight for you to get you everything that you deserve. If you wait too long, you may lose your rights. If you or a loved one has been in a car accident, call Razavi Law Group at (949) 734-0476 and “Let Your Voice Be Heard.”
