Insurance explained: Avoiding Unfair Settlements

Whenever you are involved in an accident, the first thing an insurance company or the law firm representing the other party will suggest is that you quickly settle, often for an insignificant sum of money. Even worse, these settlements may involve signing away your rights to later monetary compensation for long-term expenses or injuries. You should never sign anything until you have a chance to consult with our attorneys. In fact, T.J. and his team will make certain that any legal settlement is one that is favorable to you. In fact, you may find that the company or individual who is at fault will suddenly become eager to come to an agreeable settlement when they realize that you have secured expert legal assistance for your case.

What Types of Compensation Can You Receive?

When you are injured in an accident due to the negligence or fault of another individual, you are owed compensation for your injuries. T.J. Smith can make certain that you will receive the best possible compensation, which may include the following items:

● Short and long-term medical expenses.

● Pain and suffering, both physical and mental.

When a family member has died, his or her family can be compensated for the deceased’s lost earnings and companionship.

● In some cases, further punitive damages against the defendant may be levied by the court.
