No one is prepared for a car accident when it happens, and in many cases, it is hard to know what steps to take after an accident.
Rebecca was involved in a car crash but did not seek medical attention right away, which meant the insurance company denied her claim and refused to cover her medical expenses. She sought the expertise of the team of lawyers at Murphy & Prachthauser.
She explains her experience in this short video:
When Rebecca was hit by another driver, the accident was not her fault. When she didn't seek immediate medical attention, the insurance company assumed her injuries must have been minor and did not offer her fair compensation.
But with many car accidents, the injuries and pain may take a few days or even weeks to appear. Our attorneys always suggest getting medical attention right away, but in Rebecca's case, she sought the help of our team of legal experts to help her recover for her injuries.
"They really took the time to understand my case and understand my side of the story," said Rebecca. "They didn’t take no for an answer from the other lawyer."
Mark Baus, an attorney with the firm, filed a law suit on Rebecca's behalf and that made the insurance company take notice of the case. Sometimes, insurance companies try to make low compensation offers to accident victims, but hiring a lawyer to stand up for your rights can help you get the compensation you deserve.
"They sat down with me, they mentored me," Rebecca stated. "They were there for me and helped me to really understand and how to fight for this case."
Within a few weeks of filing the law suit, the insurance company made Rebecca a reasonable offer and we were able to resolve her claim to her satisfaction.
"They really treat you like an individual, they never treat you like a number," Rebecca added. "I would definitely recommend them."
