The fact is, you could go it alone. While you’re focusing on recovering, you could talk to the insurance company and hope they’ll offer a fair settlement for your injuries, medical bills, lost wages and other damages. The insurance adjuster (or claims representative) will probably be a kind and understanding person – even sympathetic. They’ll offer a settlement amount that might sound good, after all, the adjuster seemed like a nice person.
But think about this: adjusters are employed by insurance companies and so are the attorneys they work with to determine how much they will offer. And, you won’t be working with your own insurance company – you will be negotiating with the liability insurer (or the at-fault person’s insurance company.) Insurance companies are for-profit organizations and their priority is to protect their profits. It is not in their best interest to offer you a single dollar more than you’re willing to accept. There are so many questions to ask and facts to consider. Without the representation of an experienced attorney like Ron Smith, you may never know whether they really tendered an appropriate settlement or if they convinced you to take much less than you deserve.
We research your injuries and investigate the accident that caused them. We use that information to steer negotiations with insurance companies on your behalf and with your best interests in mind.
The cost of medical treatment for personal injuries can add up very quickly, and medical providers will seek payment sooner rather than later. And, on top of those expenses, you might miss time from work – or you may not be able to go back to work at all. Don’t take the risk of handling these complexities alone.
Wouldn’t it be nice to answer a call from an insurance adjuster or a bill collector and say, “I’m represented by Attorney Ron Smith and you’ll need to speak with him from now on?”
