Auto accidents are a fact of life. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Association 2,346,000 people are injured each year in the U.S. due to auto accidents. In the aftermath of a collision, much confusion exists for the injured person. Not only must the injured person deal with what could be a devastating injury and find suitable medical care, they also must navigate through the red-tape and negotiate with large insurance firms who do not have their best interests at heart. If you factor in pursuing potential legal claims and their accompanying statute of limitations, this can be overwhelming for the injured person. These circumstances place an injured person at a disadvantage in negotiating with an insurance company with unlimited resources. In fact, it is not uncommon for an accident victim to settle for a lower amount than what they are entitled to because they either underestimate the true amount of damages they are entitled to; want to avoid the hassle of dealing with insurance companies; or are pressured into settling by insurance companies.
