Sleazy? Or Serious???

We recently read on social media where someone had gotten mildly disgusted with the frequency and substance of commercials they’d seen on TV for Accident Injury Attorneys. One, in particular, upset them more than the others (you might guess which one). Furthermore, they were completely flabbergasted when we suggested, if they were ever the victims of an accident, they might seek his counsel and retain him for their case. Sounds a little out of the ordinary for an Insurance Agent to say, we know. But let us explain why in a manner which we firmly believe.

We FIRMLY believe in one’s personal responsibility to oneself, their community and their fellow man. Drivers don’t frequently contemplate the results of a sudden Car-head-on-crashimpact trauma to their bodies while carefully driving, hands on the wheel at 8 & 4, wearing their seat belts, going down the road at or under the posted 35 mph speed limit. But consider this. A 190 pound occupant involved in a sudden impact crash at 35 mph absorbs just under 50 G’s of force on their body. So, let us ask, how would your body react to that  amount of force and how long would it take to fully recover, if full recovery were even possible, after a crash of this everyday magnitude. Worse yet, what if the crash happened while traveling down the highway at 55 or even 70 mph. Now you might be talking in excess of 195 G’s. If organs and/or appendages were damaged, will your recovery be speedy and medically economical? Probably not. What if your injuries were fatal? What of your surviving family?

While often ridiculously portrayed, the importance (to the victims)gavel-judge-cash of legal wrangling for sizable settlements following an accident of any magnitude, for the purpose of covering sustained emergency medical, probable surgery, rehabilitation, long recovery, lost earnings, disability and punitive damage expenses, is invaluable. Getting back to our stand on personal responsibility, why should the victim be concerned with baring the expenses resulting from another’s irresponsible actions? Truthfully, they shouldn’t.  This is why you’ll always be offered higher limits of Liability and Uninsured Motorist along with Umbrella coverage with additional limits of Liability and Uninsured Motorist coverage as our part of our basic policy recommendation.

Don’t leave your life up to chance, or worse yet, the other guy. Be protected, not surprised. Get more than you’re already paying for. Come see us. We’ll explain the why’s and how’s to avoiding bankruptcy after an accident.
