Serious car collisions can forever change or end lives in the blink of an eye. The physical, emotional and financial consequences of an auto accident can be overwhelming, especially for victims injured through no fault of their own.
The medical costs involved with a serious car accident can easily reach tens of thousands of dollars. Victims may also be unable to work for extended periods, or ever, quickly magnifying the financial crisis and stress they are facing.
It’s common for insurance companies to use stressful situations to exploit vulnerable victims. If you are in this situation, do not let the insurance adjusters strong-arm you into settling your claim for less than you are entitled to.
Before speaking with any insurance company, including your own, you should fully understand your legal rights and your claim. Failing to do so will almost guarantee that you are settling for less compensation than you are entitled to.
We believe that the costs associated with hiring a lawyer shouldn’t prevent any Punta Gorda car accident victim from obtaining sound legal counsel. Because of this, our law firm handles all Punta Gorda car accident claims on a contingency fee basis. This means there are no out of pocket expenses and you only owe attorney’s fees if we settle your claim or win a favorable verdict in court.
If you have been injured in a Punta Gorda car accident, rest assured, the insurance adjusters will call shortly afterwards. They’ll be polite and seem helpful. What they want is a recorded statement.
Don’t fall into this trap. These seemingly innocent statements are routinely used to reduce the amount of compensation they offer to injured car accident victims.
Depending on the circumstances of the accident and your relation to the insurance company, you may or may not be required to give a statement.
Under most circumstances, you are required to give a statement to your own auto insurance company. Typically, you are not required to give statements to the other party’s insurance company. That being said, you are allowed to have your own attorney present while giving statements to any insurance company.
Our best advice is to have an experienced injury attorney present when speaking with any insurance adjusters regarding a car accident. This includes when speaking to your own auto insurance company. Only an experienced car accident lawyer will know how to protect your legal rights and financial interests from the insurance company’s tactics.
