Is it just us or is the traffic in Brownsville worse than ever? It seems like everyone is in a hurry. It seems as though there are more car and truck accidents on the streets. But maybe we are biased? As one of the top-rated law firms in Brownsville for personal injury, we are getting more and more inquiries from fine folks who just want to defend their rights after an accident.
And that is the way it should be. If you have been injured in one of these Brownsville traffic accidents, and it wasn’t your fault, then you are entitled to compensation. It could be a considerable amount of money, depending upon the extent of the injury that you have suffered and the culpability of the other driver.
However, if the insurance company of the other driver in one of these Brownsville traffic accidents accepts that its’ insured was responsible for the accident, then the last thing you should do is to talk to their people direct. If you do that, it is a fairly safe bet that you will not get anything near the amount of compensation that you should.
You might ask why that should be, and it is a fair enough question. If they hold their hands up and offer to pay you, why not just take the money and run?
We Know The Answer
At Javier Villarreal Law Firm we know the answer to this only too well. It is entirely to do with profit. Nothing else at all. The insurance company could not care less about you. It is only concerned with its’ bottom line.
That means that if it offers you, let’s say, $20,000 in compensation and you take it, that insurance company is going to be very happy. It might seem a lot to you, and indeed it is. But the insurance company knows full well that, if it went to court, the court might make an order for $60,000 compensation, so if it can avoid the expense of going to court and at the same time save itself another $40,000, everybody in its’ boardroom is going to be a bunch of very happy bunnies. The only loser is you! Seems crazy, but that is how it is.
If you have been involved in one of these Brownsville traffic accidents, the first thing you should do is come and talk to us. It costs you nothing, and we will be able to assess the real amount of damages that you should be getting.
If you then want to appoint us to act on your behalf, we will work very hard to ensure that you get the compensation that you deserve, which is very different from what the insurance company offered you!
