Driving is a necessity for most people. Many of us find ourselves behind the wheel almost every day. Unfortunately, the road isn’t always the safest place to be.
In 2012, 188,841 traffics collisions that resulted in injuries or property damage occurred in the state of Indiana. The truth is, even if you are a perfect driver, you can’t be prepared for the negligent acts of others when you are on the road.
Winter is an especially risky time. Black ice, snow, and inclement weather can create conditions that are less than ideal. According to previous Indiana traffic safety statistics, December had the highest frequency of collisions in 2012 with 10%, as did January in 2011, also with 10% of the collisions that occurred during that year.
The best way to prevent auto accidents is by driving defensively and paying attention to your surroundings. But even the best drivers can become involved in auto accidents in the blink of an eye.
If you are involved in an accident and approached by an insurance company regarding a settlement, consult with the lawyers at Schuerman Law first. Don’t settle for less than you deserve. Consequences from the accident can burden you financially, physically, and mentally for years.
Insurance companies are in business for themselves. They will deny or limit the value of your claims any way they can. That’s why you need a personal injury attorney on your side to aggressively fight for the full compensation of your claim.
Here at Schuerman Law, our goal is to make navigating the legal process easier for you so that you can focus on healing. We deal with the insurance companies and provide the support you need every step of the way. We make ourselves available to make hospital and home visits during evenings or on the weekend to make the process as easy as possible for you.
