Three Things We Already Know About Your Car Accident

by Staff Blogger | December 1st, 2016

Personal injury law isn’t magic, though some of our past clients might swear their settlement check was a miracle in disguise. The truth is, getting the financial compensation our clients need is more about experience, diligence, and compassion than sorcery. However, we can predict three things about your accident without knowing any of the details:

  1. Injuries complicated things. Fender benders happen every day in Roanoke. Most of these aren’t even reported to the police, as the damage is not worth the trouble. However, when you add injuries to the mix, things get complicated. Injury claims can be difficult to navigate, especially when the insurance company is refusing to play fair.
  2. You don’t know what your injury claim is worth. We would wager that no accident victim in Roanoke, unless they are an experienced personal injury lawyer, knows what their injury claim is worth. There are just too many factors to consider—medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering—and you simply can’t compile that information easily on your own.
  3. First settlement offers are low. In our experience, every first settlement offer from the insurance company is low. If you take it, you could be putting you and your family in financial peril. And when the money runs out, there’s no going back to the insurance company for more. They’re no longer liable, meaning you’re responsible for all the bills.
