Every year, there are thousands of injuries from car accidents. There are many factors that contribute to this high number of car accidents:
- reckless driving
- drinking and driving
- cell phone use
- disobeying traffic signals or signs
Sometimes drivers are preoccupied or not paying attention to their driving. It may be a cloudy or rainy day and their ability to drive may become impaired. This is no reason for you to suffer through the pain of a car accident. You may incur expensive medical bills including surgery, physical therapy and chiropractic care. Many of our clients are immediately stuck with no transportation. They need a rental car. They need to get medical treatment and they cannot get the help they need. That is why we want to go to work for you.
You may ask yourself… do I need a lawyer? The insurance companies are motivated to settle your claim for less than you deserve. They want to return a profit for their shareholders. If you have been injured in an accident, you will need an experienced Virginia car accident lawyer to handle your case. Contact The Joel Bieber Firm today.
What’s REALLY Happening with Auto Accident Claims
CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 aired a three-part report that revealed the underhanded tactics that many insurance companies are using to save themselves billions of dollars by reducing claims paid to minor-impact crash victims. These tactics – dubbed the “Three Ds,” delay, deny and defend – are discussed in the reports by former insurance industry insiders. CNN’s investigative team’s research and interviews revealed that multiple major insurance providers have employed these tactics during the course of the past 10 years. The result: 80 percent to 90 percent of accident victims settling without a fight for the small sums the companies offer. Often, these sums are as small as $50 and $100 when the victims are facing thousands of dollars lost.
