It doesn’t take long after a serious car accident has left you injured for the bills to start pouring in. If you have had to take time off from work, you will start to feel the pinch of lost wages right away as well. These pressures may push you to accept an insurance company’s first settlement offer so that you can get back to your normal life as soon as possible. However, with just one phone call to our personal injury law office in Elkins, we will lift the burden off your shoulders and may even be able to negotiate a higher settlement for you.
Getting the Damages You Deserve
When you have been injured in a motor vehicle crash that was not your fault, you deserve to be compensated by the negligent driver who caused the accident. Damages may include compensation for the following:
- Past, current, and future medical expenses
- Lost income
- Out-of-pocket costs
- Pain and suffering
- Any other losses that result from your accident
You will soon discover that insurance companies will try to minimize your recovery because they maximize their profits when they pay out as little as possible in settlements. However, as a personal injury law firm, we are well aware of insurance company tactics to reduce the value of your claim, and we will fight to get you what you deserve.
When You Should Talk to a Lawyer
For simple fender benders with only minor injuries, a lawyer will not add much value to your claim. However, when you have suffered major injuries, have unmanageable medical bills, and are entitled to pain and suffering damages, there is a lot an experienced attorney can do to maximize your settlement. Not only will the insurance company take your claim more seriously if an attorney represents you, but as skilled negotiators, we will fight to get you what you deserve—or take the claim to court. And the best part is, it will cost you nothing to talk to our legal team about your claim. Attorney Ty Nestor offers free case evaluations and, if you decide to hire us, you won’t pay a dime until we win your case. Our fee—which we will discuss in our initial consultation—will come out of the final settlement. The bottom line is, you have nothing to lose by talking to our West Virginia law firm, and you may have a lot to gain.
