Inadequate Settlement Offers from an Insurance Company
There are many instances where an insurance adjuster will try and get an injury victim to accept a settlement that won’t come anywhere close to properly compensating that victim for all the expense, pain, suffering and more that he or she has suffered. This is especially true of adjusters preying on injury victims who do not have legal help. The only purpose of this kind of lowball offer is that an insurer knows there is every chance it will wind up having to pay a great deal more money in a trial. If you have received such an offer, you can almost guarantee a substantial amount more coming to you. NEVER sign any document handed to you by an insurance company without having a lawyer by your side. If you should sign a waiver of liability or some other document that eliminates your right to sue in the future, you have signed your case’s death warrant. More on this webpage
Not even the ghost of Clarence Darrow, or the world’s greatest living lawyer, could do anything to help you if that happens. If you enlist the help of an experienced accident attorney will shield you from the tactics insurance companies use to fleece injury victims, and will make sure it offers you a truly equitable settlement that compensates you fairly for the harm that has befallen you. You need not short-change yourself.
Your Word Against that of the Other Driver
Many people believe perception is reality; most of the time when an accident takes place, there will be multiple versions of what took place and who was to blame. Of course, those versions will often be in conflict. Should this be the case in your accident, you must produce evidence supporting your side of the story. However, procuring this precious evidence takes the keen eye of an experienced, professional investigator. If you cannot produce this evidence, you stand very little chance of winning – and if you don’t have legal representation, you have very little chance of finding that evidence. There is basically no way you can win a case by choosing to rely solely on your testimony, no matter how compelling you believe your argument to be. And if you don’t win, you will leave the courtroom with nothing. The accident lawyers with our Law Office have honed their investigatory skills over the last 20 years and will launch an investigation into your case as soon as we are hired. We will gather the evidence you need to prove your case and get critical witness testimony so you don’t have to worry about saving your cash through your own words. From the trial and error of litigating countless other cases, we know that compelling evidence is a client’s best possible chance of securing restitution.
