Did you know medical bills are the leading cause of bankruptcy? It’s true. And a lot of those medical bills begin with a car accident. We see it all the time in our profession. A person is injured in a serious accident. They’re scared, can’t work, and don’t know how they’re going to make ends meet, so they take the first settlement offer the insurance company throws their way. It’s almost never enough to cover all the medical expenses that are going to come in the next several months, leaving them in a financial crisis.
Things might have been different if they had called an experienced attorney. It takes years of experience to accurately determine how much a car accident is going to cost a family long-term. As a victim, you can’t do that, and even if you could, you don’t have experience dealing with the insurance companies. It took our firm years of winning big settlements and verdicts for our clients in order to build a reputation that insurance companies respect. They know when we tell them we’re not taking less than our client deserves, we mean it. Don’t expect the same treatment on your own.
The reality is, without an attorney, you’re probably going to get less money from your accident, which can put you and your family in a financially compromising position once your medical bills start stacking up. Don’t go it alone. Call our Birmingham car accident attorneys today for a free consultation. It costs you nothing to find out what we can do for you, so call today.
