Dealing with insurance companies is inevitable after a serious vehicle accident. But it is rarely simple for an injured person to get the settlement they deserve from insurers, usually because claims representatives start calling you within days, and sometimes hours, of the accident. They catch you at your most vulnerable – and often offer much less than you are entitled to.

Obtaining the Best Insurance Settlement for You
The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration estimates that someone is involved in a car accident every 10 seconds in the United States. Deaths from car crashes occur every 12 minutes. Millions more suffer from injuries – some minor, and others catastrophic and life-changing.
Many times, accidents result in more than just injuries. Although it is never the priority when injuries are involved, substantial property damage also accompanies the most serious vehicle accidents. Put together, that makes dealing with insurance companies quite an undertaking.
Victims are bombarded with telephone calls, paperwork, accident reports, witness statements, medical bills, long-term treatment planning and other documentation related to the accident, many of which have specific deadlines. Even the most organized person can struggle to respond to the onslaught of requests, especially when medicated or when it is the family member of a severely injured or killed person. That’s where insurance companies have the upper hand – they have time and resources to immediately start working on ways to minimize your payout. As sympathetic as they sound on the phone, the truth is that insurance companies want to save money. That’s why you need a lawyer.
As your attorney, we are “pro you.” Our loyalty lies with you, our commitment is to you and we are your advocate in the maze of bureaucracy and red tape that tries to stop you from obtaining the money you deserve. A recent study shows that personal injury victims who are represented by lawyers receive three times more compensation than they would have received if they dealt with insurers on their own.
Maximizing Your Results
Because of events beyond their control or understanding, many accident victims receive no compensation or grossly inappropriate benefits and payouts from insurance companies. Even accidents that appear to lack serious injuries can be legally complex. An experienced attorney can examine your case carefully to identify all possible legal avenues so that insurance companies cannot manipulate you into getting less than you deserve.
