In part two of our Factors That Can Impact The Outcome of Your Personal Injury Claim blog, we will continue discussing the different steps you can take to ensure receiving the compensation you deserve.
Avoid Talking To Insurance Companies
Typically after a car accident, insurance companies will send their agents to contact you and obtain a statement. Normally, you would think that insurance companies have your best interest at heart as they’re asking you to provide a recorded statement to get your side of the story regarding the accident; however, that’s not entirely true. You see, the goal of insurance companies is to decrease their losses as much as possible. Your statement is essentially your witness testimony of the events of the car accident, which they will then use to justify giving you a lower settlement than you deserve.
Victims of car accidents who choose to negotiate with insurance companies risk getting unjust compensation as they might accidentally suggest that they were at fault or forget important details of the damages and injuries. The insurance company can then use that information against them to decrease the outcome of their settlement as much as possible.
Seek The Advice of a Personal Injury Lawyer
To ensure that you receive your rightful compensation, speak with a personal injury lawyer before talking to insurance companies (even your own!). While insurance companies focus on making a profit and paying out as little as possible, personal injury lawyers have a responsibility to you and your family to give the best advice for your case.
Since motor vehicle accident law can be complicated, especially in Alberta, hiring a personal injury lawyer will help you navigate your claim easily. You should know many things about the law to attain the compensation you deserve, so hiring a team of experienced car accident lawyers is your best chance to ensure that you receive the compensation you and your family deserve.
