When you are involved in an auto accident and suffer bodily injury or slip and fall at work and hurt yourself, normally there is some sort of insurance coverage that will compensate you for pain and injury. Auto insurance policy coverage can often take care of medical bills and possibly even time off of work during your recovery. Workman’s compensation on your job may take care of your medical bills but may not cover time lost from work or other pain and suffering; and there may be a large deductable on your car insurance that could be higher than your actual medical costs.
Don’t Assume your Covered
When you look for insurance coverage it can be a daunting experience. There are so many different types of coverage with tons of confusing information that even insurance agents have trouble understanding. This is why it’s always a good idea to get an injury lawyer involved. They are strictly regulated by the bar association and are better equipped to deal with anxious insurance organizations who look out for their own interests and not necessarily yours!
On Your Side
Injury lawyers are trained and licensed the same as any other type of lawyer but they have special knowledge about personal injury, liability and can negotiate with insurance companies better than an average attorney. An insurance company may seem like they’re your friend, but when it comes time to file a claim, they’re not quite as friendly as you thought. Getting an injury lawyer involved in your case will help cut through the red tape and confusing paperwork that can make your injury hurt even more! Injury lawyers can give you peace of mind when dealing with insurance companies and negotiate for the maximum award you deserve.
