Car Accident Lawyer
Even when a car or motorcycle accident clearly wasn’t your fault, it can still be difficult to get the at-fault driver’s insurance to pay for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and vehicle repair and/or replacement. You may ask, why should this be so difficult? After all, you have your own insurance company that should seek damages from the at-fault driver’s insurance company, so why do you need a lawyer?
The truth is that insurance companies – whether yours or someone else’s – simply do not like to pay out money if they don’t have to. They have lots of lawyers who can find ways to deny your claim or pay you a small fraction of what it is worth. Without detailed knowledge of how they operate, the average person doesn’t stand a change of getting the money they deserve.
A study by the Insurance Research Council found that injury victims receive an average of 3.5 times more compensation than without a lawyer. And while your lawyer will receive part of that settlement in exchange for their services, the client will usually get a much better settlement than if he/she had just accepted the insurance company’s best offer.
