If you've been in an automobile accident, it's important that you know your rights before speaking to an insurance company or entering into a settlement. The insurance company (even if it's your own insurance company) is going to work against you to try to undervalue your claim. And if you don't have an someone on your side to fight for your rights, it is easier for them to get you to agree to a low ball amount because they can settle quickly and take advantage of an injured person's unfamiliarity with his or her rights. Jeff Bennion has experience in negotiating with insurance companies, and the experience working for insurance companies to ensure you get the maximum amount of money due to you as a result of your collision.
Major collisions typically involve a wide array of injuries from hitting your head on the steering wheel, concussions, breaking a bone, hitting your knees against the dash, or anything that usually requires immediate medical attention.
While most minor impact cases don't lead to major injury, some of the most complex and expensive medical procedures involve treating victims of minor impacts who have suffered soft tissue injuries.
Even experienced motorcyclists need to be careful when driving motorcycles. Motorcycles can be more dangerous than cars because the driver is exposed. Cars and trucks have a number of safety features built into them such as reinforced frames and seatbelts. In the event of a collision, motorcyclists are especially prone to broken bones, spine injuries, whiplash, herniated discs, and other soft tissue injuries.
