Respect After An Accident And What It Means To You
When you’re involved in an accident of any kind, it can leave you struggling to pick up the pieces of your life and move on. And when the accident was caused by the reckless or careless actions of someone else, it can make things even more complicated.
However, you do have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit and get the respect that you deserve. This may seem like a cut and dry process, but in reality, there is one thing that can have a huge negative impact on your ability to get what you’re owed – respect.
The Big Issue With Respect
Respect is something that you may not initially think about after an accident but once that you begin trying to file your lawsuit you’ll quickly realize that there is more to it than you assumed. Basically, the insurance companies and lawyers on the other side will do all that they can to fight against you when you try to get what you’re owed.
The primary issue is this: insurance companies and lawyers will not have respect for you at all. They will do what they can to bully you out of what you’re owed – even though they know that you are struggling to recover. There are numerous steps they’ll take here including:
• Refusal to pay
• Forcing you through hoops
• Offering settlements much lower than you’re actually owed
• And more
And by offering you settlements that are lower than you deserve, they know that they can trick you into eliminating your ability to get restitution. They may stall or refuse payment to begin with, then offer you a settlement worth far less than you deserve. Since you’ve been bullied for so long, they assume that you’ll take the lowball offer – and most do. Once that lowball offer is accepted, you no longer have the right to additional compensation.
Fixing This Issue
There is only one real way to fight against this respect issue – get respect. The only way to do that? Get someone on your side who can fight for your rights. When you have a legal team like ours on your side, you will have a team who has a reputation for fighting for their clients and getting what they’re owed.
Once that accident lawyers are on your side, the insurance companies and legal teams will begin to quickly change their strategies. Instead of bullying, they will begin to work with your legal team to come to a resolution that works for everyone. The stalling will stop and you will get results for your case quickly.
