Until you’ve been hurt in a car accident, you may believe that it’s a simple matter to file a claim against a negligent driver and recover the cost of your medical bills and other expenses. However, the truth is that accident injury claims are often very difficult for the victim, and many people are surprised at the effort it takes to hold another driver responsible—even in seemingly obvious cases of reckless or drunk driving. The reality of these cases is that the realistic best-case scenario doesn’t always match the victim’s expectations, and that’s part of the reason it’s so important to talk with an experienced personal injury attorney before you make any decisions about your claim.
Don’t Set Your Expectations Too Low or Too High
If you overestimate the worth of your injury claim, you may end up going to unnecessary extremes in an attempt to meet unrealistic goals. While our attorneys will always push the get the maximum compensation for you and your family after a crash, we will also be honest about when the extra time and effort is unlikely to benefit you.
However, there are also problems that arise when you underestimate the worth of your claim. Insurance companies are notorious for hitting victims with low-ball offers and unfair denials, and many victims end up accepting far less than their claims are worth, without a fight.
