Have you suffered a serious injury, such as paralysis, from a truck, job or construction accident? Do not settle with an insurance company before consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney. You will cost yourself money if you do.
Insurance adjusters receive raises and promotions based on how much money they save their company. No matter what they may tell you, their bottom line is more important than you are! You can be sure an adjuster is not looking out for your best interests.
In the tragic event that you suffer a serious injury as the result of an auto accident or a work-related injury, or lose a loved one as a result of an accident, your best bet, every time, is to work with a reputable personal injury attorney who is legally obligated to act in your best interests and advise you accordingly.
Contrary to what you see on TV, a reputable personal injury lawyer’s end goal is making sure their client receives enough compensation to cover medical costs and to meet the financial needs of their family for what is lost due to the accident. This includes past and future economic losses.
If you know someone who has been seriously injured through no fault of their own, encourage them to call a reputable personal injury attorney who can protect them from being taken advantage of by the insurance company. A serious injury could result in financial hardship for the rest of the injured individual’s life which can be dealt with by an experienced attorney working on that individual’s behalf.
To ensure you get a fair settlement, here are three things you should know:
1. Don’t talk to an adjuster without an attorney. Before innocently answering questions that will be twisted and turned to be used to devalue your claim, contact a personal injury attorney and let them speak for you.
2. Be patient and wait for the right settlement. Do not jump on the first settlement offered to you. Chances are, it will be weeks before you know the total cost of the accident and your actual losses. Insurance companies will often make an offer right away to avoid paying what they know will be fair. Don’t fall for it. Get a lawyer on board quickly. It will be to your advantage.
3. Hire a knowledgeable personal injury attorney. Only a lawyer will know all the laws regarding your case, and how they apply to you. To get the best settlement in your case, hire a personal injury lawyer. Insurance adjusters want you to deal with them and not hire a lawyer because they know it will save the company money, hurting you in the process.
