There are a lot of gray areas in legal affairs. Those are not smoke and mirrors, just the fact that the law is complex. The law is so complicated that people often wonder if they have a legal case. That is why Parrish DeVaughn offers free legal advice.
If you have injuries from a motor vehicle accident and the insurance company is pressing you to settle your case, be wary. There is a lot that goes into medical injuries, especially those caused by an automobile accident. The insurance company may offer you a lump sum settlement, and it may look really attractive, but hold off. Talk to a lawyer because you are likely due more than they are offering.
The thing to consider about injuries, such as those caused by a motor vehicle accident or an injury that occurs at work is that “other” medical problems can crop up later. If you have already settled, then you have also waived the insurance company of any obligation to treat those injuries. That means that you handle paying for your medical care, lost income, and other financial burdens that were rightfully the responsibility of the insurance company.
The lesson here is not to accept a cash settlement without talking to a lawyer. At Parrish DeVaughn, we provide a free evaluation and free legal advice for your case so that you can make an informed decision about what is right for you. This is not about the insurance company. This is about you receiving fair compensation for injuries that you face now, and injuries that you face tomorrow.
There is a lot to consider in an injury case. It is not pain and suffering, but also lost wages, and the potential of lost wages in the future. If you face a legal gray area, Parrish DeVaughn will shine a bright light so you can see the way ahead clearly. For more information or to discuss your case, just contact us.
