Why File a Claim Through an Attorney?
So that‚ in the simplest terms‚ “you don’t get screwed.” Screwed by who? The negligent driver’s insurance company, that’s who.
You see‚ insurance companies are all about making money. They make money by paying out as little as they can get away with. They don’t care that your injuries will require multiple surgeries and weeks in Sharp Grossmont Hospital. They’re not concerned about the months of work you’re going to miss and how you’re going to make your house payment. No‚ if they could get away with paying you one cent in compensation for the impact their client’s reckless actions had on your life‚ they would.
El Cajon personal injury attorneys‚ like the team at San Diego’s Jurewitz Law Group | Injury & Accident Lawyers‚ are familiar with insurance company tactics because they’ve seen it all before. The insurance company’s claims adjuster will try to tell you it wasn’t their client’s fault. Then they’ll try to offer you a laughable settlement: “You weren’t hurt that bad. Here’s a thousand bucks. Now‚ will you go away?” When you turn down their offer‚ they’ll call in their lawyers to try to intimidate you. Meanwhile‚ you’re in pain‚ medical bills are pouring in‚ you’re taking time off of work for physical therapy‚ and you’re in agony if you try to play a pickup game of hoops with your kids.
A skilled attorney won’t put up with such shenanigans. He’ll call the insurance company’s bluff and demand you get the compensation you deserve.
What Not to Do After a Traffic Accident
First of all‚ don’t blow off getting medical treatment, even if you think your injury isn’t that bad. Many injuries may seem minor at first‚ but get worse without immediate treatment. And don’t forget to call the cops and have them write up an accident report.
NEVER admit any guilt‚ whatsoever. Don’t talk with anyone representing the other driver’s insurance company. If they contact you‚ refer them to your attorney.
And‚ as tempting as it may be‚ don’t talk about the accident or your injuries on social media. Don’t blog about it‚ don’t post pictures of the accident or your injuries‚ and don’t mention it on Facebook.
And lastly‚ don’t worry about your case. Your job is to concentrate on healing and getting your life back together. The crack legal team at Jurewitz Law Group | Injury & Accident Lawyers will handle your case: investigate the accident‚ file the paperwork‚ refer you to our network of physicians who will treat you before you get a settlement‚ negotiate with the insurance company’s lawyers‚ and take them to court if need be.
