If you have been in a car accident, you are not alone. Many people get in a collision that results in injuries and even death. These incidents can be traumatic, and it is imperative that you seek medical attention as soon as possible. Luckily, insurance may coordinate this, and they may even offer a settlement following the accident to compensate you for your damages.
Receiving a settlement is a good thing, of course, but you should be careful not to accept it too hastily. Many people make the mistake of accepting an insurer's first settlement offer only to find that lawyer's fees, medical bills and recouping lost income immediately eat it up. Avoid failing for the following common misconceptions.
