Personal Injury Attorneys in Fort Lauderdale and Weston, Florida
You May Only Have One Shot to Get What You Deserve
Many motor vehicle accident claims follow a pattern like this:
The victim calls the insurance company and reports the incident. The insurance company responds with their assessment of the damage to the vehicle, offers a check, and says they’ll pay the medical bills later when they are final.
That process often results in a completely unacceptable settlement and people later have regrets.
Most drivers shop for insurance based on cost. They read the benefits like collision and injury coverage as bullet points but don’t understand the details. They may see that the company will allow for a rental car during repairs but they don’t know for how long.
We have two tips at this point:
Before an Accident
Be meticulous when shopping for car, truck, or motorcycle insurance. Read the fine print and ask questions – then consider costs. Always read the entire policy first and buy the best insurance you can afford.
After an Accident
Once again, read the fine print or better, have an experienced personal injury attorney help you. This is where you will want to maximize the value of your settlement. Insurance companies don’t enjoy paying large claims and they’ll avoid it.
We always caution people not to rush into a fast settlement because once a case is “settled” you may never have the chance to go back and obtain compensation for
- Future Medical Complications
- Inadequate Repairs
- Delayed Actions from Other Parties
- Hidden Damages
- Expenses that Were Paid but not Reimbursed
