If you have been injured in an automobile accident, do not accept a quick settlement offer. Many injuries stemming from a car accident will not begin to appear until a few days, or even a week, following your car accident. Moreover, it often takes weeks or even months to fully determine the true extent of your injuries. The scope of injury determination can require weeks of physical therapy visits, doctors visits, and MRI or CT scans. Insurance companies will use the early injury cycle window as the best time to offer you $1,000.00 or less to get you to accept a quick settlement. The insurance companies know that if they spend $1,000.00 today, it will save them millions of dollars in good faith injury claims later down the road.
In fact, many major car insurance companies now hire their own defense lawyers in-house. These lawyers work for the insurance companies and solely make their living working either to deny your personal injury claim or to reduce the value of your claim. You need lawyers with proven experience to fight back against the insurance industry tactics designed to reduce or defeat your injury claim. Melancon, Rimes & Daquanno has the knowledge and experience necessary not only to litigate your case, but also to give you advice regarding how the medical process affects your health and the value of your case.
