How Toledo Injury Lawyers can Help
Chances are if you sustained a serious injury due to someone else’s carelessness, the next thing that you will do is file a claim against an insurance policy in their name. In these cases, it is important to remember that the insurance company bears little resemblance to a good neighbor and you are not in good hands so much as greedy ones. The insurance company represents the interests of their policyholders, and they have no incentive to pay out large settlement claims as this impacts their bottom line.
The first thing that the insurance company will do is attempt to blame you for the accident. You and your attorneys will need to need to protect you from that tactic. The insurance company, if successful, can have your case thrown out or significantly reduce your damages by arguing that you contributed to the accident.
If that does not work, they will begin taking a look at the extent of your injuries. If they can claim that an injury that you deserve to be compensated for is part of a problem that predated the accident, that is what they will do. If that fails, they will attack you and your credibility.
In order to prevent this from happening, we will:
- Put together a claim file complete with witness reports, medical records, video surveillance, and more to ensure that the insurance company cannot exploit ambiguities in the evidence.
- Hire experts who can testify on your behalf and corroborate your version of events.
- Talk to medical experts who can testify as to the extent of your injuries and discuss how this impacts your ability to work.
