If you were recently hurt in an auto accident that wasn’t your fault, you may have already been contacted by the insurance company. The adjuster who contacted you may have offered you a settlement, and the dollar figure may be more than you expected. But if you accept the settlement, that will be the end of your claim and you will be ineligible to seek additional compensation if you need it in the future.
At Daniel Stark Injury Lawyers, our Texas car accident attorneys know how this tactic works. Insurance companies begin investigating accidents right away, and if they know that victims have strong claims, they often try to minimize their liability by offering immediate settlements. Many victims take those offers because they need money right away to cover medical bills and lost wages, but they may not realize that their settlements will cover only a small fraction of their auto accident-related expenses.
Having a lawyer on your side can help you avoid falling into that trap. Our legal team will investigate your crash and all of the ways it has affected your life. Then, we’ll calculate the total amount of damages for things like current and future medical bills and lost wages. After we’ve come up with a fair figure, we’ll present it to the insurance company and fight for a settlement that you and your loved ones deserve.
Don’t accept less than what you’re worth—we’re available around the clock to offer you a free consultation.
