Been In an Auto Accident? Do I Need a Lawyer?

I want to first take this opportunity to thank you for visiting my website today. If you've been injured in a motor vehicle accident the first question you may have is "Do I really need a lawyer?" Twenty-three years ago when I first began handling these cases, the answer to that question may have been no. But in today's world of hospital liens, health insurance reimbursement, and dealing with super aggressive insurance adjusters, the answer is - absolutely! There are so many potential pitfalls, filing deadlines, notice requirements and medical insurance issues, that getting an experienced personal injury attorney on your side is extremely important! And the sooner, the better.

Please remember that just because you retain a lawyer, this doesn't necessarily mean that you're going to be involved in a long, drawn out lawsuit. At my office, we pride ourselves on resolving cases before filing suit if it can be settled. We believe in giving the insurance companies the opportunity to do the right thing and settle your claim for a fair amount. However, if they won’t do that, we take them to court. The main reason that you need a personal injury attorney is that auto insurance adjusters have one job and one job only and that is to save the insurance company money. You may ask, "How do they do that?" The answer is – they try to save the company money by cutting corners and not paying you a fair amount on your claim. Our job is to make sure that you are fully compensated for your injuries and receive the absolute maximum amount for your claim.

People often ask the question, "What is my claim worth?" There are numerous factors that are considered when coming up with the value of an injury claim. First of all, we look at the severity of the accident or collision. Then, obviously, we look at the nature and extent of the injury itself. Then, there are other considerations, including the amount of your medical expenses, lost earnings, or any permanent injury or disability you may have resulting from your accident. This is where I will put nearly twenty-five (25) years of experience in handling these types of cases to work for you and help maximize your recovery for your injury.
