As the victim of a car accident, you have the right to claim compensation for your medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering, and other losses that can be proven in a Court of Law. However, without an attorney on your side, you may not get all of the compensation you are entitled to receive. In fact, you may just get pennies on the dollar. Insurance companies are notorious for denying accident claims without a valid reason and for offering far less than accident victims are entitled to receive. Insurance companies are trained for many years in special insurance schools in order to give half-truths to victims and even their own insured in order to damage the victim’s legal rights and prevent him or her from obtaining the true value of his or her damages. We have seen time and time again, on a daily basis how the insurance company will throw its own insured under the bus just to save a few bucks against the claimant. It is our job to advocate and argue for our clients’ rights so that they can collect the full amount of their damages that they have a legal right to receive.
Please note: If you have been injured in a car accident, do not make a recorded statement about the accident to any insurance company including your own, agree to a settlement, sign a medical/loss wage release form or sign an assignment of benefits form before speaking with an Attorney who knows the insurance business.

Protecting Your Rights
Getting fair compensation after a car or truck accident can be like walking through a mine field. Danger lurks at every step, and once a mistake is made in a claim (such as making a recorded statement), it is very difficult or sometimes impossible to repair the damage. Without a strong advocate on your side, you may not get the compensation you deserve, and your claim may be denied even if the accident was not your fault due to strict liability rules where if the insurance company can prove you might be at least 1 percent at fault (a very low standard), you may be denied your damages. Therefore, the Attorneys at The Law Offices of Scott N. Bergman, LLC, will work tenaciously to obtain positive results for you so that you will not be a victim for a second time.
