Why You Need a San Bernardino Car Accident Attorney
When you are seriously hurt in a car accident, your health should be your number one priority. Handling your own claim could put both your health and settlement at risk.
First, it is crucial that you understand an insurance company is not on your side. Insurance adjusters are trained negotiators whose goal is to minimize your payout, if not deny it altogether. Some tactics may include;
- Calling immediately after an accident. Some serious injuries may take weeks or months before they are fully evaluated. You need time to fully assess all the damage and extent of your injuries before considering a settlement offer.
- Pressuring you to accept a quick settlement, a small but expedited offer.
- Pressuring you to record your conversation with the insurance company. You can consent to being recorded or decline. Even if the insurance adjuster insists the recording will be used for training purposes, a car accident attorney would advise against making recorded statements without the presence of counsel.
- Asking seemingly simple questions that may harm your case. If an insurance adjuster can find that you bear partial responsibility in the car accident, your settlement will be reduced or denied.
Secondly, handling your own injury claim is a difficult and stressful process. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, the NCBI, stress significantly affects your recovery.
- Wound healing is complex. Poor or slow healing can increase the risk of infections and complications, lengthen hospital stays, and slow the return to normal activities.
- Psychological stress releases the hormones cortisol, prolactin, and catecholamines, leading to increased blood pressure and blood sugar levels.
- Stress hormones can impair immune function and delay healing.
Last, small errors on your insurance claim can severely impact your settlement or cause it to be denied. Car accident claims entail;
- Preparing an immense amount of paperwork
- Collecting numerous detailed medical documents to prove the extent of your injuries
- Meeting strict deadlines
- Negotiating with the insurance company
Representing yourself in a car accident claim will leave you vulnerable to pressure from the insurance company and case preparation errors due to inexperience. Protect yourself and your rights by calling the skilled, expert car accident lawyers of Ellis Law.
