There’s only one way to make sure that you get the maximum settlement for your personal injury. You need an experienced personal injury attorney for your lawsuit as much as you needed a good doctor to treat your injuries. Only a professional is good enough.
If you’ve suffered a serious injury, you owe it to yourself to find a powerful, expert attorney who will fight for the best settlement possible. If the insurance company knows that you’ve hired an attorney with a reputation to pursue a large settlement, you can call their bluff by filing a lawsuit and heading to court.
Whatever you do, don’t sign a waiver or accept any settlement without having an attorney look at it. Insurance companies will try to make a low offer and take advantage of your inexperience. If your injury prevents you from working, you want a settlement that provides compensation for lost wages. If you’re permanently disabled, you want to get a settlement that compensates for future lost wages, hospital bills, physical therapy and other out-of-pocket expenses.
Make sure you understand your insurance policy. Know what you are entitled to within your policy and be sure you don’t overpay on a rental car, for instance, or rental car insurance if it is already included in your policy.
Insurance carriers are in the business of making money, like any other company. They work angles and do their best to avoid payouts to clients. Don’t let an insurance company take advantage of you. Contact us right away if you’re injured in an on-the-job accident, an auto collision, or if you slipped and fell at a store. We’ll protect your rights and get you the settlement you deserve.
