How Car Insurance Coverage Can Shape Your Case
After an accident, the insurance agent will be contacting you. They will seem very nice and probably make you a cash settlement offer that seems very attractive. When deciding whether to take their offer, it is important to remember that the insurance agent’s primary interest is minimizing cost for the company.
Before you accept an offer from the insurance agent, talk with our lawyers. At Bardizbanian & Associates, P.C., we are not interested in saving the insurance company money. We are interested in getting you the compensation you deserve. From our office in Richmond Hill, we serve clients throughout Queens, all boroughs of New York City, as well as Nassau and Suffolk County, in all types of an auto accident and other personal injury matters.
Send the insurance company to us; we’ll take care of it for you.
The Insurance Company Settlement Will Not Cover All Of Your Costs
The agent makes low-ball settlement offers all the time because they know it will save their employer a lot of money compared to what the case would really be worth – not to mention court costs.
Although the insurance offer looks impressive and probably covers the initial hospital bills, it will not adequately cover the long-term damages and losses that result from an auto accident or another personal injury.
Consider some of the long-term damages:
- Ongoing medical treatment
- Physical therapy
- Pain killers and other medication
- Adaptive technology if you have any disabilities that result
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of ability to perform the same work as well as you could, which lead to a lower income
- The ongoing psychological stress that so often accompanies an accident
This is just a small sampling of the ongoing damages you might experience after an accident and some of these could last for the rest of your life.
At Bardizbanian & Associates, P.C., we are committed to making sure you get the entire compensation award available to you. We will not accept an offer if your case is worth more.
