Many law firms take car accident cases in order to settle them quickly. These firms may get you money, but it could be far less than you deserve, and less than you need, to recover your health. The full extent of the damage caused in a serious car wreck may not be apparent for months. If you have already accepted a settlement, there is no going back and asking for more. You need to do it right the first time.
