Understanding Your Options After A Car Accident Case
If you or someone you love has suffered a serious injury in an auto accident, you may have many questions about your legal options. For example, if the insurance company of the at-fault driver offers you a check to settle your case, should you accept it?
At The Joy E. Miserendino Law Firm, P.C., we offer a free initial consultation to answer your questions and explain your options. Call us at 716-854-1005 to meet with an experienced and compassionate personal injury lawyer at our office in Buffalo or Fredonia in upstate New York. If you are too injured to travel, we will come to you.
Why You Shouldn't Take A Quick Settlement
Some lawyers encourage their clients to accept quick settlement checks. They may negotiate for a few dollars more. However, will the money offered be enough to meet future needs?
When you are injured in an auto or other type of accident, the civil justice system gives you one opportunity to right the wrong. Once you accept a settlement and sign a release form, your case is over, even if your injuries turn out to be more serious than you first thought.
Unfortunately, some injuries develop over time. Instead of improving, your injury may be persistent or get worse. A year after the car accident, you may discover you need surgery. For this reason, it’s important to wait until you recover fully — or as fully as you will recover — before you resolve your case.
At The Joy E. Miserendino Law Firm, P.C., we will treat your case as we would an injury affecting a member of our family. We will do what it takes to ensure that you recover the maximum compensation you deserve for damages you have suffered, now and in the future.
