car accidentOklahoma, OK- Individuals who are injured either in a car collision, truck crash or workplace accident, are eligible for compensation if another’s negligence played a role. Just because it’s your right to ask for compensation, doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy. Most of the time as an accident victim, you are dealing with insurers and legal professionals whose goal is to reduce their liability and to do so they must put a number hurdles in the victim’s way.
There are many ways a personal injury claim can be delayed. Some of those reasons include things like procedural delays and scheduling conflicts. But some delays are deliberate and purposeful and the work of the responsible party and their insurers. Before you face off with an insurer, USAttorneys urges you to enlist an accident lawyer in Oklahoma to be on your side and protect your interests. Below we’ll discuss four of the more common hurdles accident victims have to deal with while trying to obtain compensation for their injuries.
Playing the blame game
A negligent party can reduce their liability for your injuries if they play the blame game and insisting you are somehow to blame for your injuries. Placing the blame on you can reduce the final settlement amount they must pay out and without legal representation that argument may be successful and you’ll end up being shortchanged.
Diminishing your injuries
A very effective way of delaying your personal injury or wrongful death claim is to diminish your injuries, to allege that they are not as serious as you make them seem and refuse to pay your medical bills. An accident lawyer has knowledge and access to medical experts they will utilize to show just how serious your injuries are and why you deserve a generous settlement.
Giving you the run-around
Another way to delay your accident claim is to give you the run-around.  An insurer or counsel may keep delaying negotiation talks or putting off appointments. They may be unavailable if you call and never return your calls. They are hoping that giving you the run-around pressures you into accepting a lesser settlement than you deserve or giving up on your claim altogether. You are less likely to get the run-around with legal counsel.
