A few causes of car accidents
There seem to be countless ways that a Sacramento car accident can occur. Just a few of those causes could be the result of:
Permanent injuries can result
- Driver error
- Distracted driving
- Fatigued driving
- Failure to yield the right-of-way
Sacramento car accident injuries are often permanent, and they also result in the deaths of thousands of people every year. Our Sacramento car accident lawyers have represented accident victims for injuries that include but aren't limited to:
- Traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries
- Neck and back injuries that require surgery
- Organ damage
- Facial lacerations
- Injuries resulting in deaths
Many of these injuries are permanent and require prolonged treatment and therapy along with significant adjustments both at home and at work.
The insurance company's strategy
Insurers will take in as much money from premiums as possible, and then pay out as little as possible in claims. That's how they make money. The strategy of deny, delay and defend has supported a large segment of the insurance industry for many years now, and it's particularly effective when used against claimants who aren't represented by an attorney. The claimants wear down over time, and they ultimately settle for far less money than their claim is worth.
Never give the opposing insurer a statement
You have a duty to cooperate with your own insurer, but there's no law that says that you're required to cooperate with the insurer of the person who caused your injuries. If a representative of the opposing insurer contacts you and asks for a written or recorded statement, refuse to give it. That individual might sound friendly and genuinely concerned about your injuries, but remember who he or she works for. It's likely that you'll never get that statement back, and it's more likely that it will be used against you in the future. Rather than giving the other insurer a statement, talk with us, and give us your side of the story.
