The Houston Auto Accident Attorneys at DeSimone Law Office have represented many severely injured clients in the past twenty three years who were unable to work for extended periods of times. With most persons today living from paycheck to paycheck and under large debt burdens waiting on a personal injury claim to settle can be a major life disruption. As we stated last week the other insurance company will not pay a dime until you are ready to forego any other claims you may have in the future. If you think an insurance company for an at fault driver will pay your medical expenses as you go, you are sorely mistaken. If you think they will pay your lost time from work while you are recovering from an auto accident, you are also mistaken. The game they play is to force an injured party into a situation where they settle their case for pennies on the dollar because they need money today. This tactic is especially used with a major catastrophic injury with broken bones and the need for surgery and where there is a large insurance policy. The insurance company will not settle the case without a lawsuit because they want to extend the time they make the injured party financially suffer making it more likely that the injured party will settle for less than what is fair. Also the insurance company would prefer to keep the settlement money working in their bank account for another two years as a lawsuit slowly rolls on. Commercial insurance companies are notorious for this especially where their insured has a big deductible requiring them to pay a large amount of money before the insurance company has to pay.
If you have been injured in an accident, have been out of work and are experiencing the above tactics, contact the lawyers at DeSimone Law Office. We have handled these cases many times over the years and will make sure you get all the monies to which you are entitled.
