Catastrophic injuries cause lasting effects, and even if the injured person survives, his or her life is likely to be changed forever. Catastrophic injuries affect the family members of the injured, as well, especially if the injured person was the primary breadwinner in the home. Surviving family members often wind up being caregivers to the injured, and being forced to find ways to continue supporting the family financially.
Insurance settlements rarely cover the costs of on-going medical expenses and care a person with catastrophic injuries will need in order to have any quality of life.
G. David Smith always advises his clients to have an attorney review any documents or settlement claim submitted to them by an insurance representative before agreeing to sign it. Remembering that insurance representatives have their company’s best interest in mind is critical when considering a settlement agreement. Our firm has many years of experience in negotiating insurance settlements that will benefit our clients. Insurance companies are familiar with Smith’s expertise and understand that he will not back down when it comes to a fair and just compensation settlement for his clients even if it means pursuing justice through the court system.
