Insurance companies are supposed to help when people get hurt. But in reality, they are mostly concerned about the bottom line. In order to keep their profits high, they try to keep their payments low. They may question the extent of your injury. Or they'll make you a settlement offer that doesn't begin to cover the damages you've suffered.

The insurance companies have lawyers working to protect their interests. You need an experienced personal injury lawyer who will fight for your rights.

The damages a personal injury accident can cause

The damages you suffer in a personal injury accident can add up quickly. There are medical expenses for treating your injury. And if you suffer an injury that requires long-term treatment, expenses will continue to add up in the future. For example, you may require additional surgery, medication or therapy. An injury could also require home modifications, or home nursing care.

If an injury leaves you unable to work temporarily, your damages will include lost income. But some injuries can affect your ability to work at all, resulting in a loss of earning capacity.

There are also noneconomic damages that people can suffer after a serious injury. These include the pain and suffering, and emotional distress an injury can bring. There may a loss of consortium if the relationship with your spouse is never the same. There can also be loss of enjoyment of life, if an injury no longer allows you to take part in activities you love.
