Why You Need A Personal Injury Attorney
The attorneys at Ross, Midian & Breitmayer, LLC, located in Columbus, see many clients who have tried to handle their personal injury claim on their own. They think they can take on the insurance companies, only to find themselves frustrated when the insurers refuse to bargain with them.
We wanted to take the time to discuss some of the common advantages to hiring a personal injury law firm to handle your case, and would like the opportunity to discuss in detail what we can do for you if you have been injured in a crash.
You have someone who knows the process, and what it takes to get results
Sometimes these cases are much more difficult than they appear. Injuries can become worse over time, and it can be hard to track down the evidence needed to connect these injuries to the accident.
Our team has handled a number of these types of cases and understands the work that goes into a successful claim. We will prepare thoroughly for any of the twists and turns that happen with your case, so that we are ready to do whatever is required to help you recover compensation.
You get to pursue the full value of your claim
They make it sound so easy. The insurance company calls you up, makes you an offer and tells you everything will go away if you just say yes. The check is ready to be mailed and you can have it in your hands tomorrow.
While this does sound like a great deal, do you really know if the insurance company is treating you fairly? Is their offer even close to what your claim is worth? Do you know what sort of impact this accident will have upon your future?
Chances are, the offer you received is only a fraction of your claim’s value. The insurers want you to settle for less, because then they save money. If you help them out, you are only hurting yourself in the long run.
Our experienced lawyers can help you learn what your claim is worth during a free initial consultation. We can tell you more about what we think will happen in your case, and what we can do to maximize the recovery you are able to receive.
You have someone who knows how to fight the insurance company’s tricks
As we mentioned, the insurance companies probably are not making you an offer that is in your best interests. In addition to the low settlement offers they propose, they may also do several other things that have an impact on your case.
In some circumstances, the companies may attempt to negotiate with you, but make it impossible for you to make any progress throughout the negotiations. They may try to outlast you and frustrate you so that you have no choice but to accept.
Other insurers may try to contact you all the time and ask you detailed questions about the accident. They record every conversation and try to get you to say things that undermine your claim. They want you to make a mistake that they can use to pay you far less than you are entitled to receive.
When you work with our attorneys, we take care of everything for you. We handle all discussions with the insurers and make sure to look out for you through the process. Also, if negotiations break down, we are able to file a lawsuit on your behalf and pursue compensation for you at trial.
