Spinal injuries can be life-altering. They can result in a lifetime of reduced capacity and chronic pain which can be traumatic to navigate. Healing can take years of expensive care that Medicare won’t cover.
If someone else’s negligence caused your spinal injury then you have the right to seek compensation from the guilty party. You’ll just need help to do it, because the defendant’s insurance company isn’t going to volunteer to pay a fair settlement. In fact, you can expect them to fight you with everything they have.
How the Defense Undermines Your Case
The easiest way for the defense to minimize or eliminate the need to pay you is to show that your spinal injury was the result of your negligence, not theirs. The second way is to show that you somehow failed to mitigate your losses after the fact. The third way is to claim you’re not nearly as injured or as impacted as you say you are.
You have to expect all three tactics in your case. This can be infuriating, but you have defenses of your own. With your lawyer’s help you’ll be able to demonstrate the weaknesses in your opponent’s case.
We’re seasoned lawyers with a strong network of expert witnesses and investigators who can help us piece together the facts of your case, even if you were too hurt to gather information on your own at the scene of your accident.
We’re adept at demonstrating exactly how your spinal injuries have impacted your life.
How Merchant Law Helps
We start by handling the insurance company so you don’t have to. While some plaintiffs come to us after they’ve tried filing their claim, you don’t have to. You strengthen your case the most by talking to us before you talk to any insurance company representative.
Remember, the insurance company will try to play some dirty tricks. They may try to guide you into making statements they can use against you later. They make a lowball offer that keeps you from pursuing them later but which will not cover your expenses. They may tell you that you must sign statements which aren’t in your best interests to sign.
Our lawyers handle all these interactions for you. We do this day in and day out, and we know every trick in the book. As experts in the law we have the expertise to help you avoid major pitfalls.
The team at Merchant Law is known for their toughness inside and outside of court. Hiring us tells insurance companies you know your rights and won’t settle for less than your due.
