One of the "dirty little secrets" of insurance companies is that adjusters are often paid bonuses when they can settle a claim within a certain period of time. Naturally, this forces them to settle accident claims as quickly and as economically as possible. Unfortunately, this does not allow them to take much, if anything, beyond your current situation into consideration when it comes to accident claims. An insurance payoff might cover your car repair and current medical expenses, but what about the tomorrow, next week, next month, etc.? What happens when you have further expenses related to your accident such as the costs of additional medical expenses, loss of earnings, potential long-term physical and mental care, and emotional trauma for you, your spouse, and your family?
It's for all of these reasons and more that you should consult with an experienced and qualified car accident attorney who will not only represent your best interests, but will be with you throughout the entire claim process, from the beginning to the end, until you have been fully compensated for your losses and pain & suffering.
Insurance companies might claim that they represent your best interest, and to a certain extent they do, but they are also in business to make a profit, and whatever money they don't have to pay you ends up back in their pockets.
If you have been involved in a car accident, you should immediately contact a car accident attorney before you even think about contacting your insurance company. The consultation is free.
