Standing Up Against The Insurance Companies
In the last several decades, insurance companies have become less and less concerned about the well-being of the people they insure, largely because these companies are more focused on profits now than ever before.
You may have a legitimate need for insurance coverage after a motor vehicle accident or some other injurious event, and your claim could still be unfairly reduced or altogether denied by the insurance company.
We understand the complexities and nuances of these matters, and we negotiate with insurers to achieve optimal results on our clients’ behalf. By thoroughly preparing each case, we are able to hold insurance companies accountable and maximize our clients’ compensation for a variety of costs, including:
- Medical bills
- Rehabilitation and emotional counseling
- Lost income
- Loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship
The Importance Of Medical Treatment And Medical Records
If you have been injured in a car accident, motorcycle accident, truck accident or animal attack, it is important that you get medical treatment as soon as possible. Often, insurance companies claim that not getting immediate medical treatment is a sign that your injuries are not as severe as they really are, and waiting to get treated could have a negative effect on the amount of compensation you receive.
In building a strong claim for compensation, our duties include contacting all of your health care providers and obtaining the relevant medical records and summaries of medical bills. In general, medical providers tend to be very happy to know that a personal injury lawyer is representing their patient because there is more assurance that the medical provider will be fully paid for the treatment.
We handle all of these legal and technical matters while you concentrate on getting better.
An unfortunate fact of life is that the location of your accident could have some bearing on how best to approach your case in the event that it goes to trial. In Kansas, some county courts have historically been more favorable to personal injury claims than other county courts.
In most cases, personal injury claims do not go to trial and instead result in settlement, but if your case does require a court to decide, you will need a trial lawyer who is familiar with the courts and judges in the particular county where your injury occurred.
We have that experience and knowledge at Colgan Law Firm LLC.
