Being in a serious accident can be a traumatic experience that leaves you an emotional mess. Your crash happened so fast you didn’t even have time to react. Now that you can react, it’s easy to get paralyzed with fear. You don’t know who to trust or where to turn. The one thing you do know is the financial burden of this accident shouldn’t be your responsibility, but what can you do about it? The insurance company may already be knocking at your door offering a settlement check, but is it enough? How would you even go about getting more?
First of all, take a breath. We know how easy it is to feel overwhelmed, but you have to do your best to look at this from a logical standpoint. What do you think this accident will truly cost you? Sit down and estimate it. Consider medical expenses now and in the coming year related to your accident. Consider lost wages for the time you’ll be out of work (assuming you are able to go back to work). Consider the pain and suffering you’ve been put through, as well as the strain on your family and lifestyle.
Does the insurance company offer come close to compensating you for all that? In our experience, it rarely does. That’s why we recommend you consult with a Texas car accident attorney. They know how to determine what your injury claim is really worth and can fight to help you get every penny.
