There are millions of traffic incidents each year. Sadly, this probably comes as no surprise to you; in fact, you may have seen several accidents on your commute this morning and this evening—not to mention motorists stopped by law enforcement for speeding or other violations. Distracted driving is one of the biggest problems facing other motorists, made vulnerable due to the reckless driving of others, which may also include driving under the influence, speeding, ignoring traffic rules, and more.
Last year, Texas was named third highest for traffic fatalities in the nation, meaning that drivers in Houston too must be more defensive than ever while driving. In some cases, this still isn’t enough to ensure your safety and that of your passengers if another motorist is out of control and coming at you. Whether you are driving a car, motorcycle, riding a bike, or walking, a wreck could have catastrophic results. You may be affected with whiplash, serious spinal injuries, or even paralysis. Head injuries could result in concussions or traumatic brain injuries, and even death. Broken bones, contusions, lacerations, and a wide range of trauma may be sustained.
Having to deal with and adapt to a physical injury can be devastating. Not only that, it may be impossible for you to return to work either temporarily or even permanently. While you are healing, the last thing you want to have to worry about is finances, but that may be exactly what ends up happening if the insurer is not responding appropriately to your claim. If you have been injured due to the negligence of others, it is extremely important to consult with an experienced accident attorney like Andrew ‘Pike’ Piekalkiewicz, PLLC as soon as possible.
Your attorney should be handling all communication with the insurer. This is especially important if they seem to be acting in good faith. Signs that they may not be ready to pay out like they should could include lack of investigation of your claim (this is usually one of the biggest red flags, as most adjusters are very quick to get to work and begin talking to you and questioning you about your case), an outright denial for no good reason, or they may have submitted an outrageously low offer, insinuating that it is all your case is worth and all you will be offered. This is not the time to go it alone! You need expert legal help to protect your best interests—and your future.
If you have been injured due to the negligence of others, please call the law offices of Andrew ‘Pike’ Piekalkiewicz, PLLC as soon as possible at (713) 748-7453 or visit AttorneySgtPike for a no obligation case review.
