Insurance companies have teams of lawyers, underwriters, and finance professionals evaluating your injury claim.
An experienced lawyer on your side helps to level the playing field. It’s important that you understand what your legal rights are after you’ve been injured. You could leave a lot of money on the table by simply not hiring an attorney.
It is important to note that not all personal injury law firms are the same. Many of the biggest advertising firms are little more than settlement mills. A settlement mill is a firm that relies on heavy advertising as the lifeblood of their business and litigate a disproportionate amount of their cases. Such firms do not rely on current or former clients to refer cases via word-of-mouth. These firms usually settle no matter what the offer presented to their clients.
When choosing an attorney, it’s important to rely on their experience and knowledge of both the insurance companies and the law. Protect yourself and your rights by hiring an attorney shortly after you’ve been injured in a car accident.
