The frequency of auto accidents in the U.S. has become alarmingly high, which means that anybody, at any given time, can suddenly find themselves in a car wreck. The average number of auto accidents that occur daily in America now ranges between 17000 and 18000, making a total of 6 million car accidents each year.
About 1.2 million of these accidents prove fatal to the victims, and even those who are lucky to survive major collisions don’t walk away unharmed. Physical injuries like head and spinal injuries, wounds, burns, fractures, and whiplash are only some of the common damages affecting auto accident victims. Aside from these, of course, emotional trauma and mental anguish are also among the worst things that survivors have to deal with on the road to recovery.
It truly is no exaggeration to say that an auto accident can change a person’s life, and since it can happen to anybody, it’s best to be prepared for the worst. This is why insurance can prove to be a very useful thing, but unfortunately, that is not always the case. Instead, there are times when insurance companies take advantage of an auto accident victim to cut costs and minimize their losses.
Insurance adjusters, for instance, are people that employ dirty tricks to convince a victim to agree to an out-of-court settlement. They have been known to go to victims’ homes to offer petty sums of cash to get victims to settle before the case has the chance to go to court. If the victim does not know his rights, he will probably take the money and agree to put the case to rest. Insurance adjusters have ways of making it seem to the victims that they are fortunate to be offered the small amounts of cash they bring.
