Here are a few thoughts regarding “minor” car accidents.
What makes a car accident “minor”?
Who gets to decide if your car wreck was minor? A small impact does not always mean that you were not injured. Sometimes pain and symptoms take days or even weeks to appear after the accident.
What matters is the impact on your life. Even minor accidents can cause serious injuries with long-lasting suffering. These injuries could significantly affect your ability to do your current job. Or perhaps your recovery caused you to miss work and paychecks.
A lawyer can talk through your case and help you determine the value of your claim.
Just Because the Insurance Company Calls it Minor Doesn’t Mean it is
Insurance companies are in the business of trying to resolve claims as cheaply and quickly as possible. It is in their interest to treat your accident as minor and not worth much. They hope you will settle the claim, sign their release, and move on. Insurance adjusters may offer you less money than your claim is actually worth. An experienced lawyer can help you determine how much your case is really worth.
Dealing with the other driver’s insurance company can be a hassle, especially if you are not sure you are getting a fair offer for your claim. Car wreck attorneys are used to dealing with insurance companies. An experienced attorney can take much of the stress out of the situation for you.
