If you are reading this, you or someone you love has been seriously injured in an accident in Rhode Island or Massachusetts. Anyone can become injured in a car, truck or workplace accident; in a slip-and-fall; or even by a defective product. Life is not without risk. After an injury, it may feel like your world is upside down – and for good reason. Even minor accidents can result in serious, painful and sometimes permanent injuries.
It can be hard to focus on your health when insurance companies start harassing you to sign releases, agree to provide recorded statements and accept low-ball settlement offers. Your top priority following an accident is to recover and get all the medical treatment you need. At Fayan Law, P.C., our attorney can help deal with all of the legal aspects of your injury while you work on recovering your health.
The Insurance Company Is Not Your Friend
Insurance companies routinely deny or undervalue legitimate personal injury claims. Unfortunately, there are rarely “cut-and-dry” cases. You will have to prove your claim whether or not you hire a personal injury lawyer. Chances are slim that your case will resolve quickly and fairly without an attorney. Even with an experienced lawyer, some insurance companies delay making fair settlement offers in hopes that you get frustrated and take less than your claim is worth.
Insurance companies do not automatically pay for your medical treatment or your pain and suffering. In fact, they have a team of experienced lawyers on their side trying to reject or reduce your claims. As soon as you make a claim, an insurance adjuster will try to take your recorded statement. Don't do it. Insurance companies want to lock in your story and twist your words for their benefit before you have time to understand the severity of your injuries.
What Is Your Claim Really Worth?
Remember that the insurance company has an interest in downplaying your injuries and minimizing the value of your claim. The less money they pay you, the more money they keep. This is where our attorney can help. We know how to accurately value a claim, and we can prevent insurance company tactics from taking advantage of you. You do not have to deal with this alone! We can help you handle the insurance companies to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
