Rear-End Collisions And Bodily Injury Claims
People who are stuck from behind in a motor vehicle often suffer neck and back injuries, concussions, leg injuries, shoulder injuries and other types of damage. If you are fortunate, these injuries will heal over time and you will not suffer lasting impairment. Unfortunately, injuries can lead to chronic conditions and affect your life for years into the future.
Insurance companies tend to minimize accident injuries, especially if your vehicle was not extensively damaged — which may be the case in a rear-end accident. It often takes a lawyer’s help to document your injuries and obtain full compensation for damages such as:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future lost wages
- Pain and suffering
It’s important to be patient and not accept an insurance company offer until you know how the injury may affect you in the future. If you resolve your case too soon, you may not obtain all of the money you need to meet your future needs.
You should not discontinue your treatment until you get better. If you stop going to the doctor, the insurance company will claim that you are no longer injured.
