DO YOU REALLY NEED A CAR ACCIDENT ATTORNEY?
You may be wondering why you need an injury lawyer following your car accident. If everyone has insurance and the other driver admits it was his fault, why would you bother to retain an attorney? We have so many clients who start out with this point of view, and it is understandable. At first, insurance companies are great at making you feel like they want to help. They are your friend. The adjuster might even tell you “You don't need a lawyer.” What generally happens, however, is that the claim proceeds with insurance and after a while, the client feels like they are being mistreated, ignored, or downright cheated by the insurance company. That's usually when we get the call. Hopefully by then, it isn't too late.
Without the experience to handle these matters correctly, you are only hurting yourself by trying to navigate the claim with an insurance company on your own. No matter how they come off early on, insurance companies look out for no one except themselves. They twist your words and look for any excuse to assert a defense to liability and damages. Because you ‘t deal with these claims and these companies on a regular basis, you get worn down and start to feel like you might actually be wrong, or that you just want to settle the case for whatever number they offer. Don't do it!!
