You’re driving down Central Avenue when, all of the sudden, a car crashes into the right side of your car. A witness says that the car failed to stop at a stop sign. As a result, you’re injured.
The ambulance takes you to the hospital where you’re admitted. Hours later, the physician approves for you to be discharged. You rest for the remainder of the day and decide to call the insurance company in the morning.
First thing in the morning, your phone rings. It’s the other driver’s insurance company. He begins firing questions at you, wanting to know exactly what happened, the details of your vehicle, who your insurance company is, and the medical care that you’ve received.
Now, you’ve had conversations with the insurance company for weeks. You’re tired of the calls and sick of dealing with the aftermath of the accident in general. Then, they come out with an offer. $7,000.
What should you do?
Unfortunately, the answer to that question is unique to each individual case. There are many factors to take under consideration, including:
- The extent of your injuries
- The medical expenses you’ll have in the future, due to the accident
- The damage to your vehicle
- Wages that you’ve lost, because you haven’t been able to work
Please note that this is in no way an exhaustive list.
Don’t accept the first offer from the insurance company just because you’re worn down from dealing with the claim.
