Why insurance companies will try to pay you as little as possible
Many clients who contact a personal injury attorney complain that insurance companies have either rejected their claims or have offered unusually low settlement amounts. The reasons for this are straightforward: While an insurance company has a duty to their policyholders to meet claims submitted by injured persons, they also have a conflicting obligation to their shareholders to pay as little as possible on claims. The insurance companies always choose their financial interests over the interests of injured persons which is why victims of car, bicycle, motorcycle, bus, truck and pedestrian accidents need an experienced attorney to fight for them and keep the insurance companies honest.
Impact of accidents and injuries
There are many injuries which can occur during a motor vehicle accident: Broken bones, torn ligaments, neck, back and head injuries. These accidents can also cause catastrophic damages including traumatic brain injuries, amputations and paralysis. The reality is that these injuries can last a very long time and in some cases are permanent and severe. It is therefore crucial that you hire an aggressive, compassionate attorney who will treat you like a close friend or family because so much is at stake.
Fighting back and getting compensation
While there is no amount of money that can replace the loss of a loved one or magically restore a person to health following an injury, victims and their families should not have to struggle financially due to a death or serious injury after an accident. Depending on the severity of a motor vehicle or pedestrian accident, you could be faced with steep medical bills, lost wages and extended periods of recovery and rehabilitation. You and your family should therefore contact The Greenfield Law Firm who will help you through this difficult time and fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
