How a Yerington Personal Injury Attorney Can Help
Being involved or having a loved one involved in an injury causing accident can turn your entire life upside down. You can just be on your way to the grocery store, or just trying to get through a long day at work and before you know it you are on the way to the hospital. While our cozy little town of Yerington Nevada is small, that doesn’t mean that injury causing accidents do not happen here all the time.
After being injured, the last thing you will want to think about is how you are going to pay all of the hospital bills and cover your lost wages. All you are going to want to worry about is healing from your injuries and being with your family after such a scary incident. The problem is that the insurance agencies will immediately try take advantage of your vulnerable state and try to trick you into admitting that you were at fault, or even partially at fault for the incident. Then they will use that admission as a reason to shortchange you on your payout. This is why retaining an experienced Yerington personal injury attorney is so important.
How Insurance Agencies Will Try to Trick You
One of the tricks that the insurance agencies will try to pull is they will immediately send an insurance adjuster to you in an attempt to get you to make a “statement.” The adjuster will act all friendly and make it seem like they are on your side. They will tell you that it is their job to help you pay your hospital bills and cover your lost wages. In reality nothing could be farther from the truth.
It is always in the insurance agencies best interest to save money. When these enormous companies have their board meetings they don’t sit around and talk about how many people they have helped after they have been involved in accidents. They talk about how much money the company has made that quarter and how to make even more money the next. These insurance companies make money by NOT paying on the claims of the insured.
One of the first “tricks” the insurance adjuster will try to use is to get you to fill out a statement of the accident before you have a chance to talk to a Yerington personal injury attorney. They will tell you that the statement will help them get you your money faster when in reality its purpose is to try to get you to admit that you are responsible or even partially responsible for the incident that caused your accident.
They will try to get you to admit in the statement that you were tired while driving or otherwise distracted. Or, you had a drink at the bar before you slipped and fell. These tactics are aimed at using this information as evidence in court, or during settlement negotiations so they don’t have to pay the full amount in compensation.
