Negligent drivers should be held accountable for the car accidents they cause, and they should be forced to fully compensate you for medical costs and lost wages that exceed your own insurance coverage, pain and suffering, future medical expenses and any other loss of income you may encounter in the future.
At Katz Law in Paducah, Kentucky, our goal is to make the at-fault party, or his or her insurance company, pay all the compensation you are entitled to so you can move on financially as well as physically. Our goal is to make sure your bills are paid, and you have money in your pocket so you can get on with your life. We are members of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum because we have recovered millions and millions of dollars for people like you – which is very good proof of our ability to achieve that goal.
What Caused The Car Crash?
Car crashes happen in the blink of an eye. You may not immediately know what happened. Later, you may learn from a police report or a witness statement that the negligent driver was seen texting before hitting you or had been drinking beer at a bar before getting into a car. Ultimately, it is our role as your attorneys to determine exactly what took place and to prove it in order to build a strong case designed to get you full compensation.
We frequently handle cases involving:
- Texting and driving accidents
- Distracted driving accidents
- Drunk driving accidents
- Speeding accidents
- Reckless driving accidents
- Accidents due to inattention
Dealing With The Car Insurance Company
As if the stress of recovering from injuries suffered in a car collision was not enough, victims have to suffer the added stress of trying to deal with the car insurance company.
If you have already attempted to work with the insurance company, you probably have learned that insurance adjusters are not your friends, no matter how friendly they may pretend to be. The reality is that insurance companies are big businesses. They thrive not by giving out money, but by doing everything possible to avoid paying claims.
They use a wide variety of tactics to avoid or minimize losses, including losing paperwork, delaying payment to the point that you become desperate or outright denying valid car collision claims. Frequently, they take advantage of people who are in a tough situation by offering a quick settlement that might look okay on the surface but is far less than the victim actually needs and deserves. We encourage you to review any settlement offer with one of our trusted attorneys before agreeing to it. Once you accept a settlement offer, you cannot go back to the insurance company for more money if it runs out before your bills are paid.
Why It Is Important To Act Now
While your focus should rightfully be on getting better, it is important to move forward as soon as possible with your personal injury claim. Keep in mind that the negligent driver’s insurance company is likely already putting together a strategy to keep you from getting all the money you deserve. Better to avoid letting them get a head start if possible. Delay is not in your best interest. Call us today at 270-908-2872. You can also reach us by email.
