Few rollover accident victims walk away without at least some injury. While cars have become safer over the years, even the newest cars are not meant to be upside down. When a car rolls over, the injuries to those inside are often serious or even deadly. Regardless of the severity of your injury, it is essential that you retain an experienced attorney who will carefully defend your right to fair compensation.
These accidents are not only physically damaging, but also financially debilitating. Medical bills pile up at the same time that many injured victims aren’t able to work. Doctors don’t want to wait to get paid. Even if you’re not able to work, doctors offices and hospitals will still send your bill to collections if you don’t pay. When you combine the fact that you have to pay to fix your car, covering costs associated with property damage, medical bills and lost wages can seem overwhelming. When household budgets are already stretched thin, they didn’t include paying deductibles and copays.
In theory, insurance companies were put into place to help offset these costs and support you as you move through your healing process and get back to work. Unfortunately, many insurance companies may not offer you the compensation you deserve. Even the insurance companies with the friendliest mascots aren’t looking out for your best interest. The less they pay you, the more money the insurance company keeps for itself.We Fight for Accident Victims
