Why Hire a Vehicle Accident Lawyer
When you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle accident, you should not be talking with insurance company adjusters about your accident. You need time to heal and recover, especially if you’ve been seriously injured. But in the days following your accident, a representative from your insurance company or the other driver’s insurance company will likely give you a call to take a statement, and if you give one, the insurance company may use it against you.
Most people believe that insurance companies are in business to help you get the medical treatment that you need or to give you a fair settlement based on their insured’s negligence in a car accident. Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. An insurance adjuster works for the insurance company and is an expert in limiting or eliminating the amount of money that it will have to pay out for medical treatment or settlements.
You need an experienced personal injury attorney to stand up to the insurance company and prepare an expert case against the driver that injured you. Our team of experienced motor vehicle accident attorneys can help you collect the maximum amount that you are entitled to from the driver’s insurance company as reimbursement for medical expenses and as compensation for pain and suffering.
