What Compensation Can You Get After an Auto Accident?
Auto collisions can be painful, traumatizing, and expensive. Although your finances may be the last thing on your mind after a crash—especially if you’re dealing with serious and disabling injuries—there’s a good chance you’ll soon face an overwhelming pile of medical bills. To make matters worse, you may be unable to go back to work due to pain or disability caused by the crash.
At Rainwater, Holt & Sexton, it’s our goal to help injured victims get the money they need to move forward with their lives. We can work to help you get compensation for:
- Medical bills – An ambulance ride, surgeries, overnight stays in the hospital, and physical rehabilitation costs quickly add up, and it may be more than you can afford.
- Lost wages – Your job is your livelihood, and your family depends on your paycheck. But your injury may prevent you from returning to work for weeks, months, or even years.
- Pain and suffering and anguish – It’s hard to put a price on the value of a pain-free life. Auto accident victims are sometimes unable to enjoy the things they once loved due to injuries and disabilities.
If the collision wasn’t your fault, you may get a settlement offer from the insurance company that sounds good but … be careful. When an offer is made by the at-fault driver’s liability insurance it will typically be just one number. That number is not the real issue. The only number that matters is the amount of money going into you pocket. That’s the catch. The insurance company will let you believe the total amount offered is the amount that will go into your pocket. Actually, the amount offered will be reduced by the outstanding bills, by the liens, and by any other claim expenses. At Rainwater, Holt & Sexton, we will work to maximize the money coming into the claim (from all sources) and to minimize the money going out of the claim (to pay all the bills, liens and expenses). That’s how we get you the money you deserve so that you will be fully compensated for your injuries.
