Why It’s Always Important to See a Doctor After an Accident

Posted on Dec 31, 2009 3:30am PST

If you have been injured in an auto accident, it is essential that you see a doctor right away if you wish to obtain a large recovery. The amount of compensation you ultimately recover is based largely on the extent of your injuries. The only way to know the full extent of your injuries is by seeing a doctor right after your accident and following through with any treatments or therapies he or she prescribes.

Beware of Insurance Adjusters

Often times an adjuster from the other party's insurance company will try to get you to settle your claim before you are finished with your medical treatment. These people are very persuasive, and may even tell you that the amount they are offering is the most you could expect to receive if you were to take your claim to trial. Do not fall for their tricks. Insurance companies are greedy corporations, interested in making as much money as possible while compensating accident victims for as little as possible. Believe us when we say they will do everything they can to try and get you to settle your claim for less than it's worth.

If you are being contacted by an insurance adjuster, do not make any statements or agree to sign anything. Instead, contact an experienced North Carolina auto accident lawyer at Lanier Law Group, P.A. The reason these insurance adjusters try to get you to settle your claim early is because they don't want to pay the full amount for your injuries. By refraining from speaking with these people and holding off on filing a claim until you are finished with your medical care, you will know the full extent of your injuries, how much compensation you should ask for, and can pursue your claim for maximum compensation!
