Ramy Joudeh and Brett Kuller win $850,000 settlement for victim of an intersection car crash

Even minor car crashes, such as low-speed collisions or fender benders, can cause serious injuries. Being in a car is not exactly natural for people. Due to the forces involved in a car crash, a collision at even a low speed can cause significant damage. Common injuries from minor car crashes include whiplash, back and neck injuries, and traumatic brain injuries. These types of injuries can be debilitating and can result in long-term pain and suffering, as well as lost wages and medical expenses. It is important for drivers to always pay attention and drive safely to prevent car crashes and reduce the risk of injury. However, even the most aware and experienced driver can be severely injured by someone else’s negligence. This is what happened to a recent client who was injured by a bus. While driving in his own lane and passing an intersection he was struck by a private bus. The resulting crash caused injuries to his face, neck, and an ankle. It also caused fractures to his spine. No one wants what seems like a routine drive to end up being close to deadly. 

Should you take the first insurance offer or demand more?

It is generally not recommended to accept the first insurance offer during a personal injury case. Insurance companies often make initial offers that are significantly lower than what the case is actually worth. In many cases, the initial offer may not even cover the full extent of the damages and expenses incurred from the accident. Take the case of our client who was driving in Brooklyn. If this occurs to someone, and they sustain similar injuries, there’s little chance that an insurance company will pay out nearly a million dollars to the victim. Regardless of the fact that they incurred extensive medical debt and had to lose wages. 

It is important to consult with a personal injury attorney who can evaluate the case and determine the full value of the damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. They can also negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf to demand a fair settlement. It is important to keep in mind that the insurance company’s goal is to settle the claim as quickly and cheaply as possible, and they may not have your best interests in mind.

Don’t accept an offer without calling us

It is also worth noting that there is usually no obligation to accept any offer made by the insurance company and in some cases, if the settlement is not fair, the attorney may advise to go to trial. Without a consultation, we cannot advise you as to how you can proceed with your case. However, we have a history of successfully maximizing our client’s settlements. We’ve been able to recover millions of dollars for our clients. If you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, pick up the phone and give us a call.
