What if I Cannot Work After a Car Accident?
The expenses associated with a car accident can add up very quickly, especially when the injured party requires in-patient care, surgery or ongoing physical therapy. Recovery time also usually means lost time at work while personal bills and other expenses continue to mount. These circumstances can not only be stressful for an injured person, but can also present unique challenges when a lawsuit is involved. Unfortunately, insurance companies often try to save money by offering low settlements that do not take into account the losses the injured party has suffered.
Attorney Gouveia negotiated a favorable settlement for our client in this case, and commented, “A demand for settlement was made to the defendant’s insurance company, and an initial offer was made, which was insufficient. In order to increase, they wanted numerous prior medical records to clearly show any exacerbation of the traumatic injury. We obtained everything requested and once it was reviewed, the adjuster further negotiated and made a fair and reasonable settlement.” Our experienced car accident lawyers can evaluate your case and make sure you get the compensation you deserve while you focus on healing and getting back to work.
