Auto Accident, Personal Injury

Three Strikes (in Your Accident Injury Claim)….You’re Out!

Not every auto accident leads to serious injuries.  Those accidents that involve only minor injuries generally lead to modest recoveries.  But, on the other hand, there are accidents that lead to extremely severe injuries that should be compensated with a generous settlement offer.

Unfortunately, there are a few things that frequently cause insurance companies to fight a claim rather than offer a reasonable settlement.  This blog post, from Attorney John O’Neal of the O’Neal Law Office, explains the most common reasons that could prevent a reasonable settlement in your personal injury claim.

1.  Pre-existing Injuries

2.  A delay in initial medical treatment, a gap in treatment during the process of a claim, and/or failing to follow the medical treatment prescribed for your injuries.

3.  Minimal property damage to the vehicles involved

4.  Cotnributory Negligence
