Ever picked up the bill at lunch for a co-worker or offered to buy a friend coffee? Most folks have. It’s human nature. When we can afford to, most folks will try to do something nice for others. It’s a whole different story when that friend or colleague expects you to pick up the bill, right? Well, that’s exactly what the insurance company asks of you after a serious accident.
It’s no secret how insurance companies make billions in profit every year. It’s simple arithmetic. They pay out less money for injury claims than they take in from premiums. How do they do it? By offering accident victims less than they deserve for their injuries.
Here’s how it works. You’re injured in a car accident. You receive medical treatment for your injuries. The insurance company calls and offers to pay you a small settlement for your trouble. Problem is, their initial offer probably won’t cover all your future medical bills, lost wages, or other expenses, leaving you holding the bill.
That’s why you should never take the insurance company’s first offer. Give us a call instead. Our experienced Birmingham car accident attorneys can determine whether the insurance company’s offer is fair. If it’s not, we’ll fight to get you the compensation you deserve. Don’t try to take on the insurance company alone. Call us today.
