At the Law Office of Beverly R. Caruthers, we know that when you or someone you love suffers an injury in a car accident, it can be a very difficult time. Many people, especially those who have never been involved in a car accident before can feel confused and overwhelmed by the emotional stress brought on by such a sudden and intense moment. Unfortunately, in these high stress moments it is crucial to keep a calm head and make the right choices, in order to avoid exacerbating the problem later on. It is common for those who are injured, in a manner that they do not identify as severe, to refuse medical treatment. While sitting in a waiting room at a hospital may feel like the last thing you want to do after being in an accident, it is important to be medically evaluated. This is because some injuries will not show up right away, having a record of yourself going to the hospital and being seen by a doctor can be useful down the road.
While many people think insurance companies are here to help us in our pursuit of justice by paying for damages and medical costs, this is not the case. In fact, the reality of being injured in a car accident is that everyone involved in your claim process will be working against your needs, to provide you with the minimal amount of compensation for the injuries you have suffered. This seems outrageous to good people who do the right thing and trust in the system.
It is important to realize that before everything else, at the end of the day insurance companies are just private businesses looking out to protect themselves. They are trained to protect their business by paying as little as possible in claims. They are highly skilled to coerce information out of you in a manner that will weaken your personal injury case. When you give insurance companies permission to do research into your medical history, they will dig through your records trying to find evidence that you were previously injured, minimizing the impact the accident had on your body. This is why it is so important to arm yourself with an experienced and strong person injury attorney, following an accident. Attorney Beverly R. Caruthers is familiar with the tricks insurance companies try to trap you with and she will not be fooled. Do not gamble with your health, work with an attorney who will fight with you for justice to ensure you are able to get the treatment you need to focus on healing after an injury.
