When you are hurt by another driver’s negligence, don’t fall into the insurance company’s trap. If the negligent driver has auto insurance, an adjuster will be assigned to your injury claim. It is important to note: the insurance adjuster is not your friend.
Insurance companies are in the for-profit business of attempting to NOT pay for the full measure of damages caused by the drivers they insure, even when negligence is clear. We are familiar with the high-pressure tactics used by many insurance adjusters designed to discourage injured people from hiring a car crash lawyer.
In many cases, an insurance adjuster will offer a monetary settlement within hours or days of a car accident. The problem with this is that the injured person must sign a “Release of Claims” before accepting the money, which makes it so you cannot make further claims on the negligent driver’s insurance. It is usually much later that the injured person is informed by the doctor that he or she actually needs more extensive treatment, an advanced procedure, or even a surgery to treat the injury. Some people end up owing substantially more in medical bills than the amount received in the early auto injury settlement given by the insurance adjuster – don’t let this happen to you.
Most Dallas-area accident lawyers do not assist their clients with property damage claims, meaning the claims for the damage to your vehicle, when handling injury claims. Carrollton Injury Law will assist with property damage claims at NO CHARGE to our clients.
For example, after an accident, your vehicle either needs to be repaired or needs to be declared a total loss by the negligent driver’s insurance company. You need transportation as soon as possible to get to work and continue with your daily life. As part of the personal injury claim, we will assist you at no charge with getting the insurance company to make a quick decision about whether your car can be repaired, get your car to a repair shop quickly, and getting the insurance company to provide you with a rental vehicle until your car is repaired. If your vehicle is declared a total loss, we will assist you at no charge with getting a prompt payment for the fair value of your wrecked vehicle so you can use it to buy a replacement vehicle as soon as possible.
Our ultimate goal is to give you the personal attention you need to help make sure that you have a speedy recovery and get the absolute best compensation possible.
