An “accident” by its very nature is something unexpected. “Accidents happen” as they say here in the Rio Grande Valley. You can’t predict them. What you can predict is that if you are the victim of an accident here in Brownsville, the insurance companies will fight you tooth and nail. They don’t give up easily: that’s predictable.
When you have suffered an injury in an accident that wasn’t your fault you have every right to claim compensation. Ultimately, if a court awards you compensation, it won’t be paid by the other driver or whoever was responsible for the accident, it will be paid by his or her insurance company. And if there is one thing above all others that insurance companies don’t want to do, it is to pay out money. It stands to reason.
It is a very simple calculation: an insurance company wants to rake in as much as possible in premiums and payout as little as possible for losses. The more premiums they get and the less they payout, the more profit they make. In an ideal world – as far as insurance companies are concerned – they would never pay out anything at all because then, after staff wages and office rent, it would all be profit.
That Isn’t Going To Happen
Of course, that is never going to happen, but you can readily see why they fight to pay as little as possible. And that is why, when accidents happen and you are on the receiving end, you need the services of a skilled attorney such as the ones at Villarreal Law Firm who can assess your case and figure out how best to handle it.
Over the last few years, our attorneys here at Villarreal Law Firm have won over £500,000,000 in verdicts and settlements for our clients. As you can imagine, insurance companies don’t like us very much!
It doesn’t have to be car accidents or trucking accidents either. Accidents happen in all sorts of situations. For instance, some of the most common accidents in the workplace – and elsewhere – are slip, trip, and fall accidents, and these are often the result of negligence on behalf of businesses who fail to clean up spills on floors, have worn carpets, faulty flooring, and more. Sometimes a slip and fall accident can just result in bruises, but they can also often result in serious injury and on occasion can be fatal.
If you have been involved in a slip and fall accident, then talk to us at Villarreal Law Firm. One of our expert attorneys will examine your case and advise you of the best course of action and the chances of recovering the compensation that you are due.
