Legal Advice from Auto Accident Injury Layers: seek medical attention immediately!

We understand you have to work and earn living to go through this tragedy. But, please don’t wait and suffer through your pain and discomfort. Some people want to appear tough; they feel they can take their time to see a medical professional. The insurance companies, while evaluating your claim, will use this against you no matter what the reasoning is. No matter what your injuries are, if you waited, the insurance company adjuster will assume you must have not been injured that bad, otherwise, you would see the doctor immediately.

Settle or File Suit

When deciding what to do with your auto accident claim, we recommend took keep in mind:

  • Most auto accident claims settle before the 2-year statute of limitation expire.
  • The insurance company will want to settle as early as possible, offer as little as possible, drag your case as long as possible.
  • Only 2% of automobile accident cases get filled in court.
  • It is important to keep your auto accident claim moving along. We see auto claim adjusters taking weeks to reply to insured and their treatment providers.
