If you’ve been in a car accident and sustained an injury, it’s important to not only seek medical treatment, but also to talk to an attorney before taking any money from an insurance company. Almost all attorney’s will consult on auto cases at no charge, in fact, if after a consultation they decide you have a case most will not charge unless they “win” and then their fee is typically around 30%. Never settle with an insurance company without advice from a lawyer.
Pain and suffering
Physical pain symptoms (aches, pains and inflammation) after a crash are often chronic and can last for weeks, months or years. In some cases, they are permanent. Emotional pain and suffering can last for years, and in the worst cases, prevent a victim from living a full life. It is important to ensure you receive the necessary medical care to properly heal from your mental and physical injuries.
In personal injury cases, pain and suffering is considered a type of general damage and is negotiable during a claim. Without a personal injury attorney advocating for you and working with a specialized medical professional, your pain and suffering may be severely discounted by your insurance company.
