Motor Vehicle Accidents Can Leave Victims with Serious Injuries

Some of the more common injuries people sustain in motor vehicle accidents include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Severe soft tissue injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck and back injuries
Do Not Go Up Against the Insurance Company Alone
As an accident victim, you should be aware of the fact that most cases are settled out of court by reaching a settlement agreement with the at-fault party’s insurance company. The fact that your case is likely to be settled does not mean you should not retain an attorney, however. Insurance companies make money by paying out as little as possible on every claim they receive, and they will not hesitate to do everything they can to pay you less than your case is worth or deny your claim altogether.
Some of the tactics insurance companies use to minimize the amount they pay out include:
- Making unreasonably low settlement offers
- Pressuring victims to provide recorded statements, hoping that they will make statements that admit liability for the accident
- Waiting to make a settlement offer until they know that medical bills have piled up and victims are under financial pressure
- Misrepresenting victims’ legal rights to them
Fortunately, when you retain an attorney like Larry Wright, you can rest assured that the insurance company will not take advantage of you and that any settlement you accept is adequately compensating you for all of your losses.
