As many of us know, insurance companies use many slogans and quotes that promise their clients that if an accident occurs, the insurance company will be responsible for taking care of their expenses. At the end of the day, this is the reason why people buy insurance. Regardless if its Geico, Fred Loya, Farmers, or any other auto insurance company, we have the expectation that if an accident was to occur we would be treated with the same level of fairness and dignity like they promise. However, when a terrible car accident takes place, this is not necessarily the case we often see.
Being a board certified personal injury attorney for several decades, I have come to understand that insurance companies and their adjusters will attempt to do just about anything to protect their revenue, which may even mean rejecting claims that are real and legitimate that have been brought by clients who have long been loyal to the insurance company and have an excellent record in paying their premiums on time.
However, injured victims from car accidents are occasionally left alone by the insurance companies that promised to help them when they most need the help. These types of situations often involve the victim of the car accident making a claim against their own uninsured motorist coverage, probably due to the fact that the driver that caused the accident did not carry sufficient insurance or because their insurance was not enough to cover for the medical expenses, lost wage, and other expenses relating to the accident. When these types of situations occur, car wreck victims are always welcoming of the several extra dollars a month they get from their uninsured motorist coverage. On the other hand, a small amount of people actually realize the difficulty of getting their own insurance to pay for their accident can be.
Why Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?
Hiring a personal injury attorney where the accident occurred is very important. If the insurance company that promised you to help you in the event of an accident is not treating you in a fair way, then a personal injury attorney with experience will be needed to get them to cooperate and pay for the all damages you and your loved ones are entitled to receive from the accident, according to your insurance policy and the law in Texas.
Another great advantage of hiring a personal injury attorney is that you would no longer have to worry about the stress and complications of submitting a personal injury claim. You have suffered enough, both physically and mentally, as a result of the car accident. The last thing you want is to have the hassle of fighting an insurance company that is not standing by their word.
