Springfield Missouri Personal Injury Lawyer
At Ransin Injury Law, I’ve spent the last 32 years in personal injury law for the Springfield, Missouri and surrounding communities. When you are involved in a car accident, it becomes a very stressful time for you and your family. Not only do you have to deal with the property damage to your car as well as any physical injuries caused by the crash. However, one of the most difficult aspects of working past your car accident is dealing with your insurance company. Because one crash can cause so much harm, it is important to have someone on your side to make sure that your rights are protected. This is where an experienced personal injury attorney can make a huge difference in the outcome of your car accident.
Understanding an Insurance Settlement Offer
If you have been a car, truck, SUV, motorcycle or semi-truck accident, and you are not at fault, you may or may not be offered a settlement by the at-fault driver’s insurance company. The insurance company may not be forthcoming in paying you what you deserve. How much is your accident worth? How much money will it cost both in the short-term and long term for your physical recovery? In these instances, it is extremely important to have an advocate on your side, fighting for you to get you the full compensation you deserve.
What to Do with the Insurance Settlement Offer
In my 32 years of negotiating with insurance adjusters 90% of the time their first offer is not their best offer. An adjuster’s job is to minimize the amount of money they have to pay out. So in the event the insurance company you a settlement, it is important to have an experienced personal injury lawyer review it. A settlement is a final resolution; so I help my clients determine that all factors have been considered. Among the factors are the loss of wages and future earnings, payment of medical bills, and adequate compensation for pain and suffering. I help make sure that my clients recover their total losses.
The At-Fault Party Has a Lawyer
The at-fault driver’s insurance already has stacked resources on their side. Including investigators, who document information to help build a case that will minimize the damages. They will also provide legal counsel in their efforts to fight to pay you out as little as possible. In serious personal injury cases this is a fight; it’s you against a multi-billion dollar insurance company. Hiring an experienced personal injury attorney is only helping to make this a fair fight.
If you have been in a serious car accident, it is in your best interest to contact an experienced personal injury attorney. At Ransin Injury Law, we have built a reputation of fighting all the way for our clients. I would like to do the same for you.
