Car accidents can be challenging and stressful, especially when injuries are involved. Additional stresses may also include lack of transportation due to automobile damage, challenging physical recovery, missed work because of injuries, and pain and suffering. Securing experienced legal representation after a car accident is important to see that you and your family are compensated for all of your losses as a result of the accident. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, contact a Pikeville car accident attorney at Gary C. Johnson, P.S.C., to schedule a free consultation.
When you are involved in a car accident, insurance companies are bound to be involved. They may call you to interview you about the accident and act as if they are concerned about your injuries and damages, however, their real interest is in keeping their claim payouts low and settling claims quickly. Insurance companies are not on your side and you do not have to speak with them.
Insurance companies have teams of adjusters, investigators, and attorneys working to minimize the amount they will have to pay for your claim. This is true whether you are dealing with your own insurance company, another party’s insurance company, or in some cases, both insurance companies. When you have experienced Pikeville car accident lawyers advocating on your behalf, they will handle all communication with insurance companies and they will negotiate with those insurance companies for a full and fair settlement.
One of the biggest mistakes personal injury victims make is agreeing to settle claims with insurance companies for an amount that is far below the true value of their claim. Our Pikeville car accident attorneys will not cave to insurance company pressures for a quick settlement because settling quickly generally only benefits insurance companies and harms injury victims. It often takes time to discover the totality and extent of your injuries.
What may seem like a minor injury that will go away on its own, sometimes develops into a serious injury that requires considerable medical care and expense. Our car accident lawyers will review your medical records and reports, hire experts to conduct independent medical examinations when necessary, and gather any other evidence related to your injuries and damages in order to place a financial value on your claim that fully and fairly compensates you.
Contact a Pikeville accident lawyer at Gary C. Johnson, P.S.C., to discuss your accident and resulting injuries and damages. Our attorneys will advocate for a maximum financial recovery on your behalf which may include lost wages, loss of earning capacity, property damage, medical bills, future medical expenses, and pain and suffering. In cases of extreme negligence or recklessness, punitive damages may be awarded as well.
