Considering Multiple Sources Of Compensation
Seeking legal recourse for injuries sustained in an accident isn’t always straightforward. Sometimes there’s more than one responsible party whose actions or negligence led to your injury. For example, if you’ve been injured in a car accident as a result of defective brakes, you may be able to seek compensation not only from the car manufacturer, but from the dealership where you bought your car, and possibly even the city if poorly maintained roads also contributed to your accident.
Of course, each case is different and must be evaluated on an individual basis. But if you don’t pursue compensation for injuries after an accident from every potential contributing entity, you could be doing yourself a disservice. That’s why it’s so important to work with an established and knowledgeable attorney in the wake of an accident. At Berchem Moses PC, we pursue every possible avenue for compensation in your personal injury case in service of maximizing injury compensation.
Talk To A Lawyer Before Settling
When you’ve been injured in an accident, the bills can pile up quickly. You will likely have significant medical expenses that you never counted on having. If you aren’t able to work, you may be losing out on your normal wages. Meanwhile, the expenses of life continue to plod along — mortgage, food, utilities, phone bill. With all of this adding to the stress of trying to recover from an accident, it’s no wonder that people sometimes leap at the first offer an insurance company makes. But this is a mistake. Insurance companies often count on the desperation of injured people when they make an initial offer for an accident claim. They know that injured people are not generally in a position to refuse any offer of resources. But don’t sell yourself short. By speaking with a lawyer before accepting a settlement, you may learn that you are entitled to a much larger settlement than what the insurance company is offering.
