Auto accidents are usually caused by the negligence drivers behind the wheel. Whether it’s a minor fender bender or a major collision on the road, being involved in an auto accident will certainly rattle your nerves. Even though car wrecks happen on the road everyday, dealing with the aftermath of such an accident is not a simple or easy process. Even if you have great car insurance, that doesn’t mean all of your recovery expenses will be covered. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, you may be eligible to seek compensation from the other driver’s insurance company. By working with an experienced personal injury lawyer, you will have a much better chance at obtaining a fair settlement.
In my 30 years of experience as a personal injury lawyer, I have handled many negotiations with insurance companies. If they refuse to offer you a fair settlement, I am not afraid to take your case to court to fight for the highest compensation possible. Let my litigation experience work for you.
Do I Really Need an Attorney for a Minor Accident?
Yes. While you may think that your insurance company has your back, unfortunately that is not always the case. While it’s the job of the insurance companies to honor claims under their client’s coverage, what I see time and again is an effort to pay out as little as possible— even to their own clients. They have highly-trained adjusters who are intent on listening to every detail you share about your accident, in an attempt to recognize areas where they can skirt responsibility for paying out damages. Having a legal advocate on your side is key to effective communication with the insurance companies (yours and the other driver’s) after an accident.
