If you were injured in a car accident, you may have more immediate concerns, such as medical bills and lost wages. Some of those costs may be covered by your own insurance, but justice also requires the negligent driver to be held accountable.
Going to court may be the last thing on a crash victim’s mind. However, it may also be necessary, as the offending driver’s insurance company may be more interested in a quick resolution than fairness. If they make a settlement offer, don’t accept it before consulting with an attorney.
A law firm that focuses on insurance litigation and personal injury law can provide a more balanced perspective. At the Wells Law Group, we fight to maximize a victim’s recovery and protect his or her rights. Sometimes the mere act of filing a civil law suit can encourage fairer negotiations and result in a more reasonable settlement.
