When You are Injured, Count on Us for Help
A serious injury can leave you with a lot to worry about. First, there is your recovery. Getting well doesn’t end with your hospital stay; you may need follow-up appointments, additional testing, and extensive physical therapy. Then, there is money. Medical care is expensive, even if you have insurance. A severe injury can certainly strain the family budget, yet, medical costs aren’t the only financial worry associated with injury. If your injury left you unable to work, you may be worried about meeting your family’s basic needs.
You should never have to pay for an injury that was someone else’s fault. If your injury was caused by the recklessness or negligence of another person, business or agency, your medical bills, lost wages, and related expenses may be covered by insurance. But, dealing with insurance companies can be confusing, frustrating, and time consuming.
Insurance companies don’t intend to be the “bad guys”, but they aren’t “on your side” either. Like any other business, an insurance company exists to make money. Your friendly adjuster works for the insurance company, not for you. His job is to get you to take the lowest possible settlement, not to inform you of your rights. When the insurance adjuster offers a quick check to cover your immediate medical bills, he won’t tell you that you may also be eligible to receive payment for your future medical bills, your lost wages, and your pain and suffering. And, he won’t tell that once you agree take a check, you are no longer eligible for insurance compensation. That’s why you need a lawyer.
