Monticello, Arkansas car accident lawyers will fight for you
In the 10th year of being a Playful City USA, Monticello residents care about quality of life. That’s why auto accidents can be so jarring. As residents of Monticello, Arkansas, you have the right to know that whether you are driving your automobile, eating at a restaurant, receiving care from a medical facility, or buying goods from a local store that you will be able to do these things without worrying about injury. Unfortunately, time and time again Monticello residents find themselves the victims of personal injury accidents. More times than not, when these accidents are investigated, it is clear that the personal injury was caused by the negligence of another party.
In the case of automobile accidents, the driver of the offending vehicle may have been driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. They may have been driving distracted or tired. Or they simply might have been in a rush to get where they’re going. As a result of their recklessness, they cause an accident that injured you or your family.
Why You Should Call a Monticello Personal Injury Attorney
When you or someone you care about is the victim of a personal injury, after gaining the needed medical care, your first call should be to a Monticello personal injury attorney. This is because Arkansas law limits the amount of time that can lapse from when the personal injury took place to when you seek legal compensation. Additionally, the negligent individual and their insurance company will likely have a bank of attorneys at the ready to protect their interests.
Speaking from experience, we know how difficult it can be to interact with insurance companies. Whether it is an automobile accident, a work-related injury, medical malpractice, or a slip and fall injury, the insurance company’s only goal is to prevent you from getting the compensation that you deserve for your injury.
Understanding the Tricks Insurance Companies Play
Sadly, while insurance companies are dragging their feet and putting up roadblocks to you getting the money you deserve, your medical bills keep coming in. Depending on the severity of your injury, you may not be able to go back to work for some time. This only complicates the challenges you face because just because you’re not working does not mean that your bills automatically stop.
Insurance companies understand the financial hardship you are going through as you are recovering from your personal injury. In fact, they are counting on using this hardship as a way to get you to accept a settlement that is far less than what you deserve. They know that the longer they drag their feet, the more into debt will you get. The more debt you get, the more desperate you get, and the easier it is for them to lowball you.
Our personal injury attorneys at Gatti, Keltner, Bienvenu & Montesi, PLC have seen these tricks played time and time again, and it is something that we cannot tolerate. We have been defending residents of Monticello, Arkansas for more than four decades. In these 40 years, we have won settlements for millions of dollars collectively for our clients.
How GKBM helps
A great example that testifies to this is a case that we took of a 35-year-old man who was involved in a automobile accident. It was proven that the accident was not the victim’s fault. However, as a result of the accident, he was left with back problems, knee problems, and neck problems. His total medical bills were $3,000. The insurance company thought that a $3,758 settlement would be sufficient to cover this victim’s needs. We clearly realized that it was not. Our team of lawyers and investigators went to work. When all was said and done, the jury awarded our client $20,085.
This is just one example of many that show how Gatti, Keltner, Bienvenu & Montesi, PLC is able to vigorously fight for our clients.
