In an instant and without notice, a car accident can change your life forever. And no matter how cautious a driver you are, you simply cannot control the way the other drivers on the road choose to operate their vehicles.
In the United States and throughout much of the world, car accidents are a leading cause of serious injury and death—in fact, they are the 9th leading cause of death for all people. To put this into perspective, every year, roughly 1.3 million people die in car accidents worldwide—this is an average of 3,287 deaths per day. If you factor in the rise in texting while driving, the National Safety Council reports that 1.6 million car accidents each year are caused by people using their phones while driving and one out of every four car accidents are caused by texting while driving— that’s 25% of all crashes!
Following a serious car accident, your focus should be on your health and recovery. Yet, in these instances before being represented, insurance companies will seize the moment to try to take advantage of you. Their tactics include getting you to accept an unreasonable settlement offer, or getting you to discuss, while they record, your thoughts on your injuries before you have a time to adequately treat and assess them. It is of the utmost importance that when you are seriously injured in an accident you seek out representation before engaging with the insurance companies.
