If you’re in a car accident, don’t sign anything until you’ve spoken to a personal injury lawyer. Most car insurances will offer you a settlement amount but until you’ve spoken to your personal injury lawyer about all the details don’t sign any kind of settlement paperwork. Craig M. Divine with Divine Law Office, LLC is a personal injury lawyer that can help with your car accident in the Kansas City area.
Car accidents can be caused by numerous different things, from a distracted driver on their phone, to drunk drivers. Any kind of collision means property damage to your car, and possible personal injury to you or anyone in the car with you. Those personal injuries can lead to time off work resulting in lost wages, and medical bills to fix whatever injury was caused. These are just some of the reasons you need a personal injury lawyer to help handle your case.
Insurance companies like to offer a low settlement but even a minor wreck can leave a lasting physical impact. Lower back pain and neck strains (whiplash) are the most common and a quick low settlement is not in your best interest. Especially if you haven’t been cleared by a physician. Most of these types of injuries require chiropractic visits or even physical therapy, and not completing these can leave long lasting effects. Your personal injury lawyer will discuss a larger settlement amount to cover your medical expenses and loss of wages. Don’t sign anything until all treatments are finished and you’ve achieved a clean bill of health, then you and your personal injury lawyer can discuss signing paperwork.
