Soft Tissue Injuries Aren’t Just Another Case of Elusive “Whiplash”
For many years, there was a stigma about these kinds of injuries. But it’s not that the injuries weren’t genuine (though some lawyers did become “whiplash specialists”). They were just so hard to track down because the medical industry did not have the tools to confirm such injuries or determine the amount of pain they caused in these injury victims.
Over the past 30 years, it has become much easier to diagnose soft tissue injuries. The development and perfection of CAT scans and MRIs now give us a clearer picture of the devastation that a soft tissue injury brings to its victims, and the amount of pain they have to live with.
This traditional “whiplash Willie” accusation is tossed at soft tissue injury victims regularly by insurance companies who don’t want to pay a legitimate injury claim. If you don’t have an experienced soft tissue injury attorney to shield you from these insurance companies, fighting for your compensation rights can become a lonely and excruciatingly painful one.
Insurance companies can be tough to deal with. They take up a lot of your time if you don’t have an experienced attorney on your side. And they even try to take advantage of the fact that you are in such pain because insurance companies are out to protect their interests at your expense. They often involve the use of adjusters to try to find ways to deny your claims. They may call you repeatedly, asking innocent-sounding questions about your accident. Their inquiries may seem proper. But they’re usually calculated to induce you to say something in your fog of pain that could be used against you to deny your claims. Whatever you say to them will probably be recorded and could come back to haunt you as evidence against your claim in the future.
On the other hand, all of our accident injury clients have learned the best way to deal with insurance adjusters is to ignore them and let us handle them. Adjusters don’t call our clients’. We make them call us instead. When adjusters can’t talk to you, they can’t twist your words around and use what you innocently say against you. Many other times, an insurance company pressures you to settle your injury lawsuit for less than your claim is worth: sometimes much less! We believe accepting a fair settlement can be beneficial for you. But how can you tell?
The time after being seriously injured in a car accident is often stressful and confusing to the victims and their families. Don’t add to the stress and confusion by letting an inexperienced attorney handle your case or represent yourself when you are unqualified to look out for your or your family’s best interests. We are uniquely qualified and fully prepared to fight for and win the fairest compensation for your total damage claims.
