Do I Need An Attorney If I Get Rear-Ended?
Imagine it: two days ago you were rear-ended at a red light. No one was bleeding. You exchanged insurance information, maybe went to the doctor, and made your way home. You’re sitting at home, wondering if your neck is going to stop being sore soon, when the phone rings.
It’s an insurance adjuster, telling you they just wanted to check on you and “oh by the way, would you take a thousand dollars to settle your case because it’s just a soft tissue injury?” Always answer “no” to this question!
If you find yourself in this situation, you will need an attorney by your side. You don’t want to face the insurance company on your own. They will do everything in their power to make sure you do not get fair compensation for your injuries. If you’ve been rear-ended and are hurt, you need a lawyer. Period.
An attorney makes sure the insurance company doesn’t talk to you directly and makes sure that you get a proper medical treatment plan to get better, whether that involves a chiropractor, physical therapy, or an orthopedist. The most important thing after an accident is your injury recovery.
At Johnson & Alday, we focus on injury recovery both literally and figuratively. We will do all that we can to make sure you get the proper medical care so you can recover physically and get back to doing what you could do before the rear-end collision. But we will also make sure your recovery includes compensation for your injuries, your pain and suffering, your lost wages, your time, and every other debt you’re incurred because someone didn’t happen to see the light was red.
