You Deserve Current and Future Compensation After a Crash

It’s easy to get swept away by the expenses that come your way immediately after a car accident. You’ve got medical bills that need to be paid right now, and you may have missed several days, weeks, or even months of work. You need money as soon as possible to get your head above water.

Insurance companies know that victims are often in financial trouble after accidents and injuries. To avoid paying big settlements after drawn-out negotiations, they often try to pay victims small but quick settlements, often just days or weeks after their accidents happen. In many cases, victims are happy to get the money, but they don’t realize that by accepting it, they forfeit the right to get more money later.

Unfortunately, car accidents often cause expenses to pile up long after they happen. Victims often find out their injuries are more serious than thought and that they need more medical treatments. They also may be out of work for a significantly longer time than their doctors initially predicted.

But because they already accepted the insurance companies’ offers, they can’t ask for more money. Part of the terms of accepting a settlement is agreeing that the case is finalized. At Skolrood Law Firm, we see this situation play out over and over, and when victims contact us after accepting settlements, it’s often too late.

Don’t make their mistake. Contact our Roanoke car accident lawyers right away after a crash that wasn’t your fault, and before accepting any settlement. We’ll work hard to determine exactly how much money you’re owed for all your expenses, including those you’ll face months or years in the future.
