Traffic accidents happen every day. If you or someone in your family has been injured in a motor vehicle accident, you’re entitled to compensation for your injuries, your medical bills, loss of income, and the damage to your vehicle. If you want to make sure you receive all you’re entitled to, you need a personal injury attorney. Of course, the first thing you may hear from an insurance company claim adjustor is that you don’t – or that, because you have to pay an attorney, you’ll receive a greater amount by settling on your own.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
The fact is, the insurance company’s claims adjuster’s job is to pay you as little as possible to settle your motor vehicle accident claim – to save the insurance company money, not to see that you are treated fairly. The claims adjuster knows that if you don’t have an attorney to protect your interests, the insurance company can decide the settlement amount. Also, be aware that the insurance company or government agency that paid your medical bills may be entitled to be paid back out of any insurance settlement. Thus, If you settle an injury claim without an attorney, you may have to turn around and pay back the medical insurer. An attorney can often obtain reductions in medical liens – and in some instances can have medical liens eliminated.
