Speedy settlement isn’t always best tactic after car accidents

When we suffer any form of life trauma there is an understandable desire to try to get past it as quickly as we can. No one wants to dwell on the pain and misery that a catastrophic accident can create.

At times, it may be smart to move fast, but not after an accident. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury in a crash, the most important thing to do is concentrate on getting better. And if the injury is particularly serious or life altering, then the chief goal needs to be on figuring out what will be needed to make the most of life going forward.

Both of those objectives take time. But if you were involved in an accident in which someone else’s negligence was the cause, you are likely to be confronted with fast pitches from insurance adjusters looking to close the book on the claim as quickly and cheaply as possible.

To extend that the baseball analogy, this is the time when a batter should plan to take a few pitches and assess the situation before taking a swing. With all that is at stake and because the legal playing field has a lot of confusing rules, it makes sense to seek out and enlist skilled teammates.

There are a lot of different types of vehicle accidents. The thing they all have in common is that if they result in you suffering injury, you need confidence someone is looking out for your best interests. Take the time to get in touch with experienced legal counsel.
