Connecticut Personal Injury Lawyers
If you or someone you care about suffered serious injuries in a car accident, you understand how emotionally traumatizing the situation can be. In fact, car accidents can have far-reaching consequences that reverberate into your future. This is one reason why it’s critical that your car accident settlement agreement accurately reflects the damages that resulted from your injuries.
What You Need to Know
When it comes to your car accident settlement, there are three critical points to keep in mind:
- Never accept a settlement offer before you consult an experienced Connecticut car accident attorney. Car accidents can lead to serious injuries that can affect your life for years to come. They can even cause permanent injuries and disabilities. Further, car accidents often have emotional and mental repercussions that can be more difficult to recover from than the physical injuries themselves. An experienced car accident lawyer will help ensure that your settlement agreement accurately addresses the totality of your damages.
- If you’ve been a car accident victim, seek immediate medical attention. Seeking medical attention after a car accident is not only the right thing to do for your well-being, but is also the right thing to do for your car accident insurance claim. Even if you don’t think you have serious injuries, certain kinds of injuries – like traumatic brain injuries and soft tissue injuries (both common to car accidents) – can develop over time. Seeking medical attention early on can greatly improve your prognosis. Finally, seeking medical attention lends veracity to your car accident claim and lays the groundwork for defending the amount you calculate for your settlement agreement.
- The insurance company involved is not on your side. If you suffered injuries in a car accident, you’re no doubt overwhelmed, and it seems logical that dealing with the insurance company directly is the path of least resistance. It’s important to remember, however, that massive insurance companies are in the business of turning massive profits – in any way possible. This often includes minimizing car accident settlements (or even denying them outright). Insurance companies have big guns when it comes to protecting their bottom line, and they pull them out when it comes time to pay out. Allow your car accident attorney to deal with the insurance company on your behalf. Your claim is far too important to leave to chance – or to the discretion of the insurance company.
