The“whiplash” injury is a frequently used non-medical term for what is the most common neck injury suffered in a truck car, motorcycle, or bike accident. Insurance industry lies, as well as false and deceitful advertising and information published by automobile insurance companies have made this type of personal injury to be one often perceived by the public as exaggerated, or even faked. Insurance companies try to prevent people who suffer this pain from putting in a claim by demeaning the injury and the person feeling it. They use false medical studies and information, and even use “paid for experts”, to diminish and deny payments they owe people.
Insurance companies have well-developed schemes to deceive and cheat car accident victims. Do not be fooled by the apparently kind and trustworthy injury adjuster! They are trained to “con” the injured accident victim into trusting them and after the insurance company has gained the trust of the injured person, they then reduce or deny payment!
They use many different types of pretexts to deny payment to an injured person. They may claim to have hired a so-called biomechanical engineer who determines they were not hurt. For a few hundred dollars, these fake scientists will send out a false “canned” report, dismissing the injury as not having occurred. Insurance companies even hire doctors and pay them thousands of dollars to write reports stating a person is not injured. Some of these reports are made by doctors who have never even examined the person! A competent car accident lawyer can and will spot these tricks, and warn his or her client, and take steps to stop the insurance company’s schemes.
Getting proper medical care and regaining your health should be the most important concern if you have been injured in a car accident. Do not let insurance company schemes alter or stop you from getting proper medical care.
An injured person should never feel embarrassed or afraid to tell their doctor and to seek immediate treatment for a “whiplash” injury. These injuries can be very devastating, and if untreated, can become permanent. The insurance industry has spent millions of dollars over the years in spreading false information to convince the public that these types of injuries are not real, not because such injuries are in fact faked, but because they want to pocket the money they owe injured people. The car insurance companies reap undeserved windfall profits by not having to pay injured car accident victims who have suffered these sometimes devastating whiplash injuries. Anyone who has suffered a neck strain or sprain injury, i.e., whiplash, knows that not only are such injuries very real, but they have a tremendously harmful impact on a person’s ability to perform their every day life activities.
Even a short delay in seeking legal advice can cause a “whiplash” injured person to fall prey to the sophisticated tactics of the insurance company. Waiting to seek legal advice can mean the insurance company will have already gained the upper hand by the time an attorney recognizes and informs you of the tactics being used against you.
A personal injury lawyer should always be willing to give a free consultation so delay in seeking legal advice makes no sense. Call The Cooper Personal Injury Law Firm today, we have over 35 years of experience as a Stockton whiplash lawyer.
