A personal injury lawyer helps you to gain financial compensation when you have sustained injuries in a car accident. Craig Divine at Divine Law Office, LLC can help if you’ve been injured and need to talk with insurance to gain a fair settlement. The expenses can quickly become devastating for you and your family when in an accident, which is why you should never sign anything without speaking to your personal injury lawyer first!
If you’ve been in a car accident, you’re not alone. Accidents happen every day, all over the United States. In fact, according to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) in 2019 (the most recent year for which data is available) 2.74 million Americans were injured in vehicle accidents, and nearly 37,000 were killed. Even if you are a routinely safe driver, it’s likely you’ll be in a car accident sometime in your life, which is why it’s so important to know what to do when an accident occurs.
Insurance companies constantly like to offer a low settlement amount, 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 anyone’s best interest – especially if you haven’t been cleared by a physician. Most of these types of injuries require several chiropractic visits or even physical therapy if its severe enough. Not completing these things can leave long lasting effects for you and anyone caring for you. Your personal injury lawyer will discuss a larger settlement amount to cover your medical expenses and loss of wages. DO NOT sign anything from insurance or anyone until all treatments are finished and you’ve achieved a clean bill of health; at this time, you and your personal injury lawyer can discuss signing paperwork.
