WHY SHOULD I HIRE A PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY?

Picture this. You have the misfortune of getting into an auto accident. You file a claim with the insurance company and begin treatment. The property claim seems to go very well, so you decide not to hire an attorney. Months later, you have stacks of medical bills and a claim from your health insurance company for a portion of what they paid. Because it has taken you so long to recover, most of your medical bills have gone to collections and you don’t have the money to pay for them because you have been on short-term disability. The car insurance company is giving you the run around, and you don’t know what to do.

Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happened to one of our clients. She visited our office after months of therapy and recovery, completely at her wit’s end because she did not know how to pay her bills or how to handle the insurance company. It can be an overwhelming process, especially if you are unfamiliar with it. Fortunately, we were able to not only get all of her medical bills paid, but we also got most of them reduced so she was able to take home a larger settlement. We were able to help her recover her settlement, but it would have been much easier and less stressful on her if she had come to us first.

So, why should you hire a personal injury attorney? Here’s why:

1. We have experience with insurance companies. We know how to get all of the benefits available to you that you might not be aware of and how to negotiate with the insurance company. Insurance law can be very complicated.

2. You don’t have to do anything. Being in an accident is stressful enough. The more bills you have, the more confusing it gets. It’s a lot for one person to take on and it can get extremely overwhelming. An attorney will not only collect all of your bills and records, but he can also negotiate them for you. All you have to do is concentrate on your medical treatment so you will be able to return to work.

3. The insurance adjuster is not on your side. They work for the insurance company. They want to give you the least amount of money possible. They can easily minimize your claim if you are not aware of your right’s. An experienced personal injury attorney knows your rights and can fight for you to get you what you deserve.

If you have been injured in an accident, don’t get bullied by the insurance company.  Call our office NOW: 888-8000.  You will speak directly to an attorney (Ralph, Richard or Ryan) to learn what you need to do to make the best case against the insurance company.
