Not all accidents can be avoided. A Bucks County car accident can leave you or a loved one with a serious injury that can impact the rest of your life. In addition, you could be left wondering how you will pay your medical bills and whether or not you can hold the other driver liable for your damages.
The role of a Bucks County car accident attorney
There is a lot to consider when building a car accident case, especially determining a successful strategy to deal with the insurance company. Let’s face it, they are not your friend and will want to pay you as little as possible for your claim. The value of your case will be determined by how strong your case is. Your attorney can help you get the best settlement possible by:
- Making sure you get the best medical treatment available
- Making sure that your privacy is protected
- Stepping in and doing the negotiation with the insurance company on your behalf
If you have been injured in a car accident, your primary concern should be getting the proper medical treatment as soon as possible. Your health should be your primary concern. In addition, ensuring that you receive quality care in a timely manner can help your case. As a matter of fact, failing to do so could be held against you and jeopardize your case’s value.
Protecting your privacy
Insurance companies will go to great lengths to devalue your case. This includes using your medical history against you. You might be asked to sign a medical record release authorization by the insurance company. Do not sign anything until you have spoken to your attorney. By signing this form, you might:
- Allow them to invade your privacy
- Jeopardize your case’s value
- End up with a lower settlement than originally estimated
Negotiating your case
You have two options if you are seriously injured in a car accident; you can either negotiate your claim by yourself or you can utilize the services of a Bucks County car accident attorney, such as the experienced team at Cordisco & Saile. Keep in mind that the insurance company is more qualified and has more experience than you do at negotiating settlements. We can help you avoid the many tactics they may engage in to take advantage of your inexperience. Keep in mind, their number-one concern is their bottom line.
