In our previous blog post, we discussed how teen drivers need good examples and clear expectations before they head out on the roads by themselves. Many parents take the time to ensure that their teen is ready for the open road; however, there are some parents who don’t take this seriously.
Any driver, including teens and adults, who isn’t ready to drive and who isn’t taking the responsibility seriously might end up causing an accident. This is a devastating situation for an innocent bystander, especially when there is a catastrophic injury that comes along with the accident. These injuries can mean that you aren’t able to return to work and that you have unfathomable medical bills coming in because of the injury.
There are some instances in which the settlement from the insurance company might be sufficient to cover all of the damages from the accident. This isn’t always the case since insurance companies have to look at their own bottom line when they are handling claims. You can’t count on the insurance company to protect your interests. Instead, you have to take steps to ensure that you are being taken care of appropriately.
We know that dealing with a large insurance company might be more that you can handle right now. We can help you deal with the insurance company, but we can also go a step further. We can help you to seek compensation from the driver who struck you. This might help you get compensation that truly covers the damages that you suffered in the accident.
