Are you one of the over 20,000 automobile accident victims in the Hillsborough County area? Did you know that over 80% of these accidents resulted in personal injuries? The minute you can get to the phone after a car accident you absolutely need to call the Hillsborough County Car Accident Attorneys at Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group.
As many of the victims of previous accidents can tell you, you may not realize you have been hurt right away. Often it is obvious but there are times when you wake up the next morning and you cannot move your back, turn your head, get off the bed, or many other ailments may befall you. Not only has your car been damaged, but you are in pain! You deserve compensation for both as well as all medical expenses.
When you are in an accident:
• Get all the information of the person who hit you: name, address, phone number, insurance carrier, policy number and the person’s work number, if possible
• Get the name of the investigating police officer if you can
• Do not ever tell anyone that you feel fine or you are not hurt
• Do not talk to the other driver’s insurance company
• Call Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group at 813-248-4878
• The call is free and so is your consultation
Dealing with Insurance Companies:
Insurance companies are in business to make money and are not known for their generosity or philanthropic good deeds. The way they make money is to charge their clients large premiums yet keep claims payouts as low as possible. If you are not represented by a Hillsborough County Car Accident Attorney, then your adjuster will try to act like your best friend. He or she will tell you how fair their offer will be for your damages, pain and suffering, and medical bills. Do not believe it. These adjusters are not employed to administer fair settlements. Their job is to get you to accept the lowest possible payment.
Our Hillsborough County Car Accident Attorneys have been dealing with insurance companies for decades. We know all the tricks in the books. We know what a fair and reasonable settlement for your type of case and injuries should be.
If you have never been in an automobile accident, then you may not fully realize just how much compensation is needed for you be made financially whole. Medical bills and the costs to repair or replace the car are obvious, but consider these other questions:
What if you are not able to return to work immediately?
How will you support you and your family?
Who will look after your children, clean your home, do your cooking and grocery shopping?
These are a just few examples of the “hidden costs” that accrue from a personal injury, and we know all about them. Therefore, we are in a prime position to ensure all those costs are considered and presented to the insurance company, so you can get the maximum amount of money for your claim.
Dealing with Doctors:
There are good doctors who will treat your immediate injuries, but as a general rule will not accept a patient who has been in an automobile accident. They are called on to make tedious reports and do not want to engage in any reporting that may bring legal action against them. Your Hillsborough County Car Accident Attorney can point you to a list of doctors who our clients have used and been pleased with.
