Personal injuries are serious matters and shouldn’t be taken lightly. Personal injuries that result from auto accidents, unsafe environments (construction, fire hazards, etc.) harassment, and crime, literally turn the lives of their victims upside down physically, financially, emotionally, and even psychologically. For this reason, victims and their loved ones should seek the necessary reparations to make the path to healing and normalcy easier to walk.

What Can Bell Law Do When I’ve Experienced a Personal Injury?
When you’ve experienced a personal injury a Bell Law attorney can represent your case as follows:
- Monitor your medical records and stay in contact with you during your recovery process;
- Communicate with the insurance company or companies as necessary (it is recommend that clients do not speak with insurance companies as clients are often not treated with respect and given very little information)
- Never negotiate a settlement until your needs and demands are met.
- Prepare a demand letter and negotiate a settlement with the insurance company that takes into account your entire claim including future medical expenses.
- Take your case to trial if a beneficial settlement is not reached.
In the Meantime
After you’ve experienced a personal injury it can be tempting to try and tackle all issues at once. Legal, medical, psychological, financial….it becomes too overwhelming! In the midst of this chaos remember that it is of the utmost importance to reduce stress. This may seem impossible during such a difficult time but one of the best ways to reduce stress is to refuse to talk with the insurance company. It may seem tempting to pick up the phone and try and resolve issues but insurance companies do not have your best interest in mind and are simply concerned with processing your claim with as little costs as possible.
In fact, insurance companies will generally try to settle your claim early, perhaps before you have made full sense of the damages incurred. It is important therefore that you take the time to assess the depth of your claim including lost wages and the cost of medical care. It is also highly recommended to talk through these details with an attorney who has your best interests in mind.
