When you’ve had an auto accident, you need a lawyer on your side. The accident only lasts seconds, but the consequences on you and your family last much longer, maybe forever. You’ll have to recover from your injuries, but you’ll also have medical bills, lost wages, car repairs and other expenses.
The insurance company is not on your side. It’s not their job to “help” you, Insurance companies’ obligations are to their stockholders to make profit, and their profit increases when they pay less to injured people. Insurance companies have enormous advantages: vast wealth, armies of experienced adjusters and attorneys, and numerous reasons to try to deny or limit your claim. We have experience in such cases. We know how to handle the insurance company tactics and get you the compensation you deserve.
Negotiating alone : Often the insurance company will call you soon after the accident, when you’re still in recovery, and offer you a small sum of money to settle your case. Be careful. If you settle your case, did you know that you cannot recover any further compensation for that accident from the insurance company, even if your injuries do not heal or you suffer additional complications. What happens if your condition worsens, you have to return for more medical treatment, or you miss additional work? Also, don’t take the insurance company’s word on what is the value of your case. You need a knowledgeable attorney on your side to negotiate for you.
