Insurance companies will look for ways to reduce your settlement from a car collision injury.
Make sure that you do not settle to soon.
Insurance companies want to cut their loses and pay you a small amount of money to settle your claim.
You want to get all the treatment you need to get you back to work and able to perform your activities without pain.
Once you settle the case is over and any future medical treatment is your responsibility.
Make sure that you see the doctor early and often to get your necessary treatment.
Otherwise the insurance company will argue that you are fine and that the delayed medical treatment is not related to your accident.
Do not give statement to the insurance company.
They will use your statement against you to reduce your settlement.
Stay off social media.
Insurance companies are checking on injury victims and trying to use photos and posts against them to show activities inconsistent with medical limitations.
