Serious injuries, such as injuries to children or infants, or traumatic brain injury, can have a long-term effect on the lives of those in Oregon and Washington. Don’t let the insurance companies determine your fate.
There’s no set dollar amount when it comes to how much money you should receive for your injury claim. The bottom line is you should be paid for all your accident-related expenses, now and in the future. As a result, your case could potentially be worth thousands of dollars or significantly more.
Unfortunately, some insurance companies underestimate how much some claims are actually worth. Instead of providing an estimate that accurately reflects all past, present, and future expenses, some insurance companies only take into account a fraction of the amount you rightfully deserve.
This is why it’s important for injury victims to have a lawyer on their side, looking out for their best interests. Your attorney can demand the maximum financial compensation you deserve. That way, you can focus on recovering from a severe injury without worrying about how to pay for such expenses.
All of your accident-related expenses should be paid for by the at-fault party if someone else caused your accident. This includes all of your expenses so far, as well as any future, anticipated expenses, including:
If you didn’t do anything wrong, you shouldn’t have to pay for someone else’s reckless or negligent behavior. After you’re hurt in an accident caused by someone else, make sure you get the money you deserve. Talk to a lawyer right away who can fight for your rights.
Many times, the insurance company for the at-fault party will make an offer to settle your injury claim. This often happens soon after an accident. Many people are tempted to accept such an offer, especially if bills are adding up fast for medical treatment and other accident-related expenses.
But the reality is many settlement offers don’t come close to covering all accident expenses. Instead, most insurance companies only consider short-term expenses immediately after an accident. And once you agree to accept such an offer, you cannot ask for more money in the future.
Experienced personal injury lawyers think differently. They take into account the long-term future expenses often associated with injury claims. As a result, your lawyer can demand the money you deserve and negotiate a better settlement offer on your behalf.
Worse than receiving a low settlement offer, some insurance companies simply deny injury claims. Sometimes, it’s because insurance companies claim their client was not at fault. Other times, they might insist that you have not provided enough evidence in support of your accident claim or that you have a pre-existing injury.
Whatever the reason, if the at-fault party’s insurance company denies your injury claim, you have several legal options available to you. This includes filing a lawsuit in an effort to obtain the money you deserve for all your accident-related expenses.
An experienced lawyer can help you file a lawsuit or explore other legal options on your behalf. Sometimes, simply filing a lawsuit is enough to encourage insurance companies to return to the negotiating table and make a fair settlement offer. If not, your attorney can sue the insurance company or whoever’s responsible for compensating you for your injury claim.
If you or a loved one was injured due to someone’s negligence, or if someone you love died in an accident and wants to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit, don’t risk going up against the insurance companies alone. It pays to hire a lawyer. Studies show that personal injury victims see more compensation when they hire a personal injury attorney. At Zbinden & Curtis, we understand the intricacies of state and federal law, as well as insurance company regulations.
