Highly Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers Committed to Helping You Get Your Dues
When you’ve been in an accident that results in personal injuries, loss, or damage, the direct impact it has on your life and the lives of your loved ones can be a serious struggle. If you happen to be the financial provider of the family, the impact becomes even more devastating.
Along with the physical toll of an accident, the emotional and mental toll can be equally devastating. Many victims of personal injury accidents are frequently unable to work and are uncertain about how to move forward financially and career-wise.
That’s why, when the insurance company calls, injured victims frequently accept their offer quickly, even if it’s not ideal or even reasonable. Insurance adjusters know exactly what struggles injured victims are going through, and they can use that knowledge to try and take advantage of the very people they’re supposed to be helping.
Do Insurance Companies Really Not Have My Best Interest at Heart?
The unfortunate truth is that, most of the time, the job of an insurance adjuster is to get the victim to accept the least amount of compensation as quickly as possible. It’s unfair, but it’s the reality that insurance companies profit by paying out as little as possible to their clients.
That is why you need experienced and proficient Jefferson County, MO, personal injury lawyers, Grafe & Batchelor Attorneys at Law.
As skilled attorneys with experience working to get reasonable settlements for our clients, we know all the tactics that insurance adjusters use to try and keep injured people from receiving the compensation they need and deserve.
Insurance companies might think that personal injury victims don’t know any better, and sometimes it takes an experienced lawyer to step in and act on the injured party’s behalf so the insurance company takes the claim seriously. We’re proud to be the lawyers who strive to make that difference for our clients.
If you or a loved one have been injured by someone’s negligence or carelessness, we can help you. You shouldn’t have to suffer because someone was not paying attention or doing what they should, and you shouldn’t be left high and dry because your insurance company doesn’t want to act responsibly and compensate you.
How Do I Make Life-Changing Decisions During This Difficult Time?
We understand how quickly life changes after an accident. Not only are you recovering physically and mentally from a traumatic life event, but you’re also being asked to make critical decisions that can affect the rest of your life. No one should have to make such serious decisions on their own while still in recovery from their injuries.
The pressure of mounting medical costs and bills piling up can make your situation feel overwhelming, and sometimes it feels like the only solution is to take the offer that is on the table. We understand that instinct for immediate survival.
However, we also know that your life will continue long after you get an offer from the insurance company, and you may need to seek continued physical or emotional therapy or other kinds of care. Getting a lawyer who can help you secure the proper offer now will allow you to make those plans for the future and keep your health and well-being as the first priority. Our goal is to help you solve your problems for now AND for the future.
This is why we’re highly committed to helping our personal injury clients get the compensation they actually deserve. Call Grafe & Batchelor today at 636-933-9151 to schedule a free consultation.
What Damages Can I Claim For In A Personal Injury Case?
If you are successful in pursuing your claim for a personal injury, there are a number of damages which you may be able to claim for. These include the following:
- Medical Costs: You will be able to claim for any medical expenses incurred at the time of your injury, as well as any costs which are needed in the future. This may include ambulance trips, inpatient hospital stays, medication, physiotherapy, doctor’s visits, and check ups.
You will also be able to claim if you require any additional help around the house, such as nurses, carers, or domestic staff to help you manage day-to-day tasks.
- Loss of Income: If you are unable to work as a result of your injury, you may be entitled to claim for loss of income. This will cover the period that you are unable to work immediately following the injury, as well as considering any future loss of earnings. If you are unable to return to your previous role or are forced to reduce your potential earning capacity, these factors will all be taken into account when your damages are awarded.
