After a Car Accident: When Insurance is Not On Your Side
A serious auto accident can be one of the most stressful times in a person’s life. Far too often, victims assume they can handle the complexities of a personal injury case on their own. Then they learn that insurance companies don’t always live up to their promises — looking out for what’s best for you. This was reality for Linda Mills. After finding herself in the middle of a six-car pileup on I-40 in North Carolina, she was left with a broken neck and mounds of medical bills to sort through.
This is her story.
After trying everything in her power to hold the at-fault driver’s insurance company accountable for her medical expenses, she finally took the advice of her loved ones and hired an attorney. With over $13,000 in doctor bills, Linda knew she needed a powerful voice. Ward Black Law was able to turn things around — to secure the funds necessary for her recovery.
Like Linda, many people do not realize they are injured until days after an accident. This is why it is important to avoid settling with the other driver’s insurance company right away. See a doctor and give yourself time to recover, as symptoms often don’t arise until your body is at rest. Linda’s initial scans showed no injuries, but nine days later she learned that her neck was fractured in several places. Her case outcome would have been very different had she settled prematurely.
