Contrary to popular belief, insurance companies do not have your best interests in mind. After all, they exist to turn a profit, just like any other business. Unfortunately, this means that many car accident victims will not get the full and fair compensation they deserve after an accident if they rely solely on the insurance company to evaluate their claim and offer a settlement.
Full medical expenses incurred as a result of your injury regardless of health insurance payments can include:
- The future cost of treatment to the extent known;
- Loss of wages;
- The loss of future wages;
- Loss of enjoyment of life;
- Future loss of enjoyment of life;
- Pain and suffering;
- Future pain and suffering;
- Disfigurement; and
- Loss of consortium injury suffered by your spouse.
Car insurance companies will often offer the lowest settlement possible at the beginning of a case, in hopes that the client’s immediate need for funds or desire to close the case quickly will win out. Accepting the first settlement offered by an insurance company frequently leaves auto accident victims with less than they need to cover their medical bills, lost wages, and other accident related expenses.
