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
• Stalling
• 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.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
