If you’ve been injured due to someone else’s carelessness and you don’t have health insurance, you could be facing a serious dilemma.
You Can’t Wait on Your Treatment
Waiting May Make the Pain Worse and Stay Longer
You know from common sense that the earlier you get treatment for a problem, the easier it is to treat. An ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure. Studies also show that the longer you take until you start treatment, the longer and more painful the recovery.
Waiting Makes It Harder for You to Make a Claim
Insurance companies flag a claim as possibly fraudulent if you don’t get medical treatment within the first four days of an accident. After thirty days, they treat it as automatically fraudulent – so the longer you wait until you get treated, the harder it will be to make your claim to them. If you have to go to trial, you face the same problem with the jury – the insurance lawyer will say “Why didn’t he get treatment? If he was hurting like he claims he is, why didn’t he go to the doctor sooner?”
Question to ask the insurance adjuster: : Isn’t it true that if I hire an attorney, I’m likely to receive more money in settlement than if I try to settle the claim on my own?
Remember, the insurance companies have spent millions of dollars to persuade potential jurors to believe that everyone is trying to take advantage of “the system” and are faking their injuries. Do you want to give the insurance company lawyers ammunition?
