All Auto Accidents Are Serious, Regardless of Injury
Accidents can vary in severity from situations involving death or near-death to minor fender-benders in parking lots. Regardless of the severity, it is important to understand that you have rights in these situations. For all auto accident cases, big and small, you deserve to receive the medical treatment that you need and to be made whole to the extent possible under the law.
Avoiding Tactics from Insurance Companies
There are many tactics that insurance companies may use that could lessen the value of your claim including discussions with you, fixing your car at their body shop (where the car will only be minimally fixed), and asking to retrieve your medical information for you, potentially allowing insurance companies to dig into your past to try to use it against you. It is easy to feel overwhelmed and intimidated following a car accident, especially when injuries are involved. As a result, it is important to work with an attorney who understands your position and who defends it.
