I seriously doubt that this company will pay for future medical needs without a serious threat of litigation. This company's primary incentive will be to give you as little as possible. Period. If your injuries are serious, you will probably get paid a greater amount in compensation if you find an attorney to match up against the company's attorneys.
Seeking the advise and expertise of a personal injury attorney is your best bet. As was stated previously, an attorney will be able to make sure that your present and future medical bills are taken care of. A personal injury lawyer will also be your advocate in dealing with both insurance companies and the grocery store lawyers.
Among the rights you may want to know about is the time in which you must file a claim against any party at fault, where legal fault may lie, what types of compensation you may be awarded, and how to avoid making damaging admissions to insurance adjusters and investigators. Your attorney can explain further.
