According to 2004 statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 1,500 deaths occurred that year because of fatal car crashes. Three years later the NHTSA found that motor vehicle traffic crashes are the leading cause of death in the US for those aged 3 to 33. The people who survive car crashes may have debilitating injuries, emotional stress and mounting medical bills.
With high priced medical treatments, victims may look for a quick fix and feel tempted to accept an insurance company's settlement offer. Injured car accident victims see an easy solution with this type of settlement. However, accepting an insurance company's offer is usually a way to lose money. In return for accepting their settlement, the injured person signs away their right to ever pursue additional compensation from the insurance company. What if their condition requires a lifetime of physical therapy sessions?
An insurance company gives their lowest number with a settlement offer. Victims need to look out for their own best interests. Hiring an accident attorney increases car crash victims' chances of getting the highest payment possible.
