An insurance company may contact you soon after your crash with an initial settlement offer. This offer can be tempting, especially if you are facing bills for surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy and medication. But the insurance company's offer likely suits their own best interests, not yours. And if you do not have an attorney, it may fall far short of the compensation you deserve.
Focused on getting results
Attorney Colin Scott uses his knowledge as a car accident lawyer to estimate the total amount of damages you have suffered in your accident. This includes all current and future medical expenses related to your injuries. It includes any lost wages while you are unable to work as well as any future wages you may no longer be able to earn. It also includes noneconomic damages you suffered as a result of the accident, including pain and suffering.
We work hard to build a strong case and fight for your rights. This often includes reviewing relevant documentation such as property damage estimates, photographs, and police reports. It also sometimes includes interviewing witnesses, visiting the scene of the accident, and may also include consulting with experts to determine who was responsible for your crash. Having done this for years, attorney Colin Scott knows where to look for evidence that the other driver was negligent - for example, if the driver was driving recklessly, driving distracted or drunk.
Using this information, Colin works hard to build a strong case that can prove you were the victim of another driver's negligence. Then he demands that the insurance company provide compensation for the damages you suffered. When they see that we are ready to fight for you in court, insurance companies oftentimes will offer a fair settlement.
But we are not interested in a quick settlement agreement that helps the insurance company save money. We are determined to help clients reach a resolution of their case that meets their needs and allows them to improve their current situation. Our client's expectations in the case must of course be realistic. But if the insurance company won't agree to a settlement that works for you, then you are the person who will ultimately make this decision. If we advise you not to accept a settlement and you agree, our firm is prepared to fight for your rights in court.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident due to the negligence of another driver, you have legal rights that must be protected.
