How Do I Protect My Rights?
Remember that it’s hard to tell how serious an injury is at the start. Doctors may say it’ll get better in weeks just to learn later that there are complications. For this reason, we recommend you do two things that are important to protect your rights:
Do NOT take money or sign any paperwork. We speak to men and women who took the money first offered by the insurance company. They realized they would need more treatment, costing far more than the insurance check. They then had signed away their right to renegotiate. The reason insurance businesses offer cash right away is because they would like to settle your claim cheaply, paying the lowest amount possible to you. Never sign anything, give a statement to the insurance company, or take a check, if you have not consulted with a lawyer.
DO see a lawyer right away. You receive the advice and information you need to make a financial decision when you consult with a lawyer. An attorney has experience working with insurance companies and has seen many cases like yours. They can tell you whether you’ve got a strong claim and make sure you receive a complete medical evaluation by physicians who understand your specific condition. Insurance companies offer increase substantially just because you’ve got a lawyer.
How Do I Know if My Claim Is Valid?
If it was not your fault and if you were hurt, you can have a claim. Injuries don’t usually happen- do not be too quick to blame yourself. This is true of car accident injuries and slip and fall accidents, among others. Negligence does not imply that someone wanted to hurt you. But it does mean that the negligent party’s insurance company is responsible for your injuries.
Some common types of accidents are:
- Car accidents
- Accidents involving trips, slips and falls
- Pedestrians or bicyclists
- Products that produced or are defectively designed
- Dangerous medical devices
- Harmful prescription drugs
- Any sort of injury can cause a successful personal injury claim.
Will I Want to Go to Court For My Personal Injury Case?
Most of the time, no. Sometimes an insurance company simply won’t negotiate. If we can not resolve your case with the insurance company, we explain what might happen if you take your claim to court and will tell you how strong we think your case is. We can continue to represent you all the way through trial, should you file a lawsuit with the Auburndale court system. But a lot of cases never reach there. At Winters & Yonker, we’re known for our ability to get insurance companies to pay up and our negotiating power. We start every claim with a complete investigation into the cause of your injuries and what it takes for you to recover as completely as possible. We could show the insurance company evidence of what occurred and how much money you’ll need. In many cases, that’s all it takes to get you a financial recovery that is substantial.
