Car Accident and Personal Injury Cases in Sutter County

Anyone who was injured due to a car crash which they were not responsible for has a right to full compensation. The losses which can be covered include loss of wages or lowered earning capacity, as well as your medical bills. Should you now need to retrain for a new career, the other party ought to foot the bill. Pain and suffering or other general damages may also be awarded.

Insurance companies would rather make you feel guilty than telling you all of this. If they make you feel small and unworthy, you will lower your claim. If you wish to get the full compensation that you are entitled to, call us and we will make it happen for you.

Insurance companies will attempt to trick you out of compensation. Here are the top five methods they use.

1) Put in an early but low settlement offer
Taking an offer soon after the accident means that you may not be able to claim for permanent injury later. You can only assess a permanent injury once some time has passed.

2) Trick you out of health care
Insurance companies state that a car crash without broken bones should leave you healthy again after 6 to 8 weeks. This may not be the case, even if you have had physical therapy. What they won’t tell you is that you should get an MRI if the pain continues. Any time spent without new care will be called a “gap in treatment”. The argument is that if you were really injured, you would not have waited for more care. Make sure that you demand diagnostic treatment. We will guide you through this if you need help. It is essential for your claim that gaps are avoided.

3) Preventing you from affording health care
Even those without health insurance are entitled to treatment, and it can be paid for in different ways. Later, the insurance company should foot the bill for these reasonable costs.

4) Recording a statement from you
Taking a recorded statement allows the insurance companies to manipulate your words later on. If you are asked to provide one, call us immediately for advice. Recorded statements can seriously harm your case.

5) Changing your private medical records
If the insurance companies ask you to provide access to your medical history, make sure that you call us right away. They will flesh out your records with their own stories, purchased from hired doctors. They will harm your case by claiming that your injuries existed before the crash. They may even claim that they were from a different source.
