If you have been injured in a car accident provoked by a negligent driver, you are legally entitled to seek financial compensation for your hospital bills, lost income, and other losses you have contracted as a result. Regrettably, no matter how apparent it is that the other driver is responsible for your losses, you could still be faced with a dispute if you file a claim.
We know the tactics employed by offenders and insurance carriers during accident-related cases to diminish their liability. Insurance companies will do their best to manipulate you into giving a formal recorded statement they will then use against you. This enables them to lowball you on a settlement offer before you even know the entire scope of your injuries.
