When someone’s reckless or negligent actions cause you to suffer an injury, the at-fault party and their insurance company should be liable for the costs of your injury and recovery. Insurance companies want you to believe the common myth during these accidents: that insurance companies care about you and your health.
The average cost of a car accident can be thousands of dollars or more. Despite how much it can cost someone to pay for an injury’s costs, insurance companies will do anything in their power to keep from paying you a settlement that reflects the total cost.
What you should know about insurance companies
Insurers commonly portray themselves as a business that cares about their clients and as a company that wants to help people in any way possible. People often forget that insurance companies are a business like any other, and their primary goal is to maximize income while minimizing expenses.
One of their biggest expenses includes paying victims of accidents compensation for their injuries. It is only in an insurance company’s best interest to get away with paying accident victims less than they deserve. One of their most common tactics in achieving this is convincing victims that lawyers only make things worse.
An experienced personal injury attorney can actually become your greatest advantage in maximizing your compensation after an accident. Lawyers know how to identify the current and future costs of your injury, negotiate for a settlement that is a fair reflect of those costs, and provide you with that settlement as soon as possible.
