Settling an Insurance Claim After an Injury

You’re on your way to your daughter’s soccer game, when out of nowhere a distracted driver hits you.  You go to the hospital in pain and are told you have whiplash.

The next day the insurance company calls.  They offer you $500 and to cover your medical bills for 30 days to settle the claim.  Despite still being in pain, you reluctantly accept it.

Three weeks later you’re still in pain and told you have a serious neck injury that will require more medical treatments and time away from work.  You immediately reach out to your insurance company again, but are told there is nothing they can do because the claim has already been settled.

After an accident, make sure you know the full extent of your injuries before settling a claim.  If you need help, call one of our experienced personal injury attorneys at Anderson O’Brien Law Firm.
