Insurance Companies Keep Secrets V
Insurance companies are not going to tell injured persons all the various types of damages they may be able to make a claim on. These damages regarding a personal injury claim could include compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, unpaid medical bills, and future medical expenses. A claim for pain and suffering can be the hardest claim to put forward but could also be the biggest category of damages that an injured person may be able to make. Therefore, Insurance companies will not bring up pain and suffering or if brought up, they will try to minimize it. In order to get the secrets, an insurance company is keeping from an injured person, the injured person will need the help of a good personal injury attorney.

Insurance Companies Keep Secrets IV
Insurance companies are not under a duty to tell injured persons about all the potential defendants or responsible parties there may be for their injuries. This could include persons that have negligently entrusted their vehicle to an “at fault” driver. The insurance company does not have to tell you about prior accidents that involved their insured’s vehicle. Insurance companies will not tell an injured person about any possible claim for diminished value that the injured person may have for his or her vehicle. The insurance company does not have to tell injured person what they really think their case is worth. Insurance companies will seek to get injured persons to sign overbroad medical authorizations that will allow them to find out about prior injuries that can be used to devalue an injured person’s claim is worth less. An insurance company will not tell an injured person that they will be looking for prior injuries. Consequently, seek out a personal injury attorney before you sign any medical authorization forms.

Insurance Companies Keep Secrets
In this five-part series, I will discuss how insurance companies seek to keep secret information that is harmful to them and helpful to injured persons’ seeking compensation for their injuries. Insurance companies owe no duty to volunteer information to injured persons not insured by them. What this means is the insurance company is not obligated to give an injured person information that would make their case worth more than the insurance company is offering to pay.
Insurance companies want injured persons to be uninformed when it comes to settling their personal injury cases. Insurance companies do not want to be transparent when it comes to policy limits, types of insurance coverage such as first party coverage, history of the insured’s car, driving history of its insured, types of claims available, or how uninsured or underinsured coverage works. That is why it is important to seeking the counsel of a good personal injury attorney.

Raytown Personal Injury Lawyer: Construction Zones
It is that time of the year where there is construction going on the roads and highways in and around Raytown. These construction zones create unexpected hazards as well as frustrations for drivers. In a number of situations, construction zones require extensive detours that lead drivers into areas that they may not be familiar with. A number of these detours have involved the use of streets that are not designed for such additional traffic as may be routed onto them. This can create choke points as well as situations where vehicles going in the opposite direction need to use the same stretch of road. When this happens, it is important for drivers to share the road and not become frustrated by the driving situation. Otherwise, an accident may result including a head on collision that can result in personal injuries to occupants of the vehicles. Caution, therefore, is the watch word of the day. If you have an accident in a construction zone or on a detour caused by a construction zone in the Raytown area, then you should contact a Raytown Personal Injury Lawyer.
