Why do I need a lawyer? I have insurance.
You are correct that the insurance companies can and should pay for any medical bills or truck repair. Sometimes, this is all you need.
But what if you have a previous medical condition that was aggravated by the collision? What if you did not notice the pain was worse until months after the settlement? What if you start having symptoms of whiplash or even nightmares from the trauma of the collision long after the case is closed?
Or what if your injuries start to affect your job performance? Your bills were paid… but suddenly you’re struggling at work and not sure you can successfully do your job? The insurance companies won’t reopen the case; so what do you do?
Or what if the other driver’s insurer does not believe you? Or what if the other driver has lied? Just because you are being honest and fair, it does not mean the other party will treat you fairly. The people representing the person that hit you are not advocating for you; shouldn’t you have someone on your side?
Not all damages are immediately recognizable; and not all people are honest. But sometimes, even if everyone is acting above board, still, you’re not being heard. Just because someone is insured, it doesn’t mean you are protected.
