If you were in a car crash, you probably need a car crash attorney to help you so you do not lose benefits and rights.
In 2015, there were more than 6.2 million police-reported motor vehicle crashes with more than 2.4 million people reporting they were injured in those crashes.* The injuries likely ranged from small injuries-only requiring a few visits with medical providers-to significant injuries that resulted in surgeries or, in some cases, even death.* See National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Insurance companies use these type of statistics to create large data bases and computer programs to track the types of injuries, types of medical providers seen to treat injuries, and the average recovery time of those injuries in order to evaluate your claims for injuries and offer settlements. But averages fail to consider your unique history and injuries and how the crash has impacted you and your loved ones, which often leads to unfair and inaccurate settlement offers that do not truly reflect fair compensation for your injuries.
Do not let some insurance company tell you the value of your case without knowing you.
