I was injured in a car accident. Do I need a lawyer?

 

A:

 

Auto Injury Lawyers at Speaks Law FirmYou are smart, tough and organized.  You have dealt with insurance companies before.  It was the other guys fault. They have accepted liability. Why do you need a lawyer for your auto injury claim?

Like everything else, accident claims have gotten more complicated over the years.  The insurance adjuster knows these complex rules. How could you be expected to know them?

Maybe you need a lawyer. Maybe you don't. But, you do need information. We can provide it. We can answer your questions and give you reliable information.  With reliable information you can make good decisions.

The call is free and confidential. There is no obligation.  There are lots of ways we can add value after an auto injury.

1.   We Will Answer Your Questions.

Should I talk with the insurance adjuster?Should I speak with the insurance adjuster? Should I give a recorded statement? Should I use my health insurance? Medicare? Medicaid? Is there a time limit on my claim? What happens if there is not enough insurance? The insurance adjuster knows the process. Shouldn’t you gather reliable information before you speak with her?  Call to speak with an experienced car accident attorney now.  The call is free.  There is no obligation.

2.   We Will Maximize Your Claim.

You didn’t cause the accident. It was the other person’s fault.  The Collision Report says so.  After an accident, you have unexpected bills. You may miss work.  You don’t want to pay for something you don’t need.

So, why should you hire an attorney?

Here is why:

“Injured people recover 3 ½ times more when they were represented by a lawyer.” (-2004 Insurance Research Council study)

Money doesn't solve every problem, but it sure does help.

3.   We Will Help You Find the Right Medical Providers.

We can provide medical referrals.Your Health is your top priority.  It is ours, too.  Should you go to the hospital? Your family doctor? A specialist? A Chiropractor?  What if you don’t have insurance? We will answer these questions for you. We will help you find medical professionals who will see you now and bill you at the conclusion of your case.

4.   We Take Care of Everything.

After an injury, we want you to get better.  We will take care of everything else. We provide:

  • Free Home and Hospital Visits;
  • Free Collision Report Review and Analysis;
  • Free Insurance Coverage Review;
  • Free Property Damage Assistance;
  • Free Medical Referrals; and
  • Free Car Rental Assistance.

In addition,

  • We Open Insurance Claims.
  • We Collect Evidence and Witness Statements.
  • We Perform Necessary Legal Research.
  • We Communicate with the Insurance Adjuster.
  • We Negotiate with the Insurance Company.
  • We Pay your Medical Expenses out of the Insurance Proceeds.

 5.   We Provide Peace of Mind.

In addition to physical injuries, accidents can be mentally stressful.  We take care of your claim so that you can focus on healing.

The law relating to accident claims is complex.  I have been working in this area of the law for over 20 years, and I still have to do legal research every day.  One mistake can end your claim.  We can answer questions and maximize your claim while you get better.  You owe us nothing unless we win.

6.   We Protect Your Rights.

We protect your rights.Within days of an accident, the insurance adjuster will contact you.  Do NOT speak to him or her without first speaking to me.  The insurance adjuster works for the insurance company, not for you.  His job is to save them money and pay you less.  He will ask seemingly innocent question looking for ways to deny all or part of your claim.

We will take over all communication with the insurance company.  We will make sure that your words and actions are not taken out of context to undervalue your claim.  We will prepare the evidence, witness statements and the legal arguments in your case and present it in the most effective way possible in order to maximize the value of your claim.
