The other driver admitted fault at the scene. Why do I need a lawyer?
Memories fade, stories change, and people lie. Some cases take a long time to resolve, so it’s important to preserve the evidence you will need to prove your claim. Witness statements, photographs, skid marks, damage to the vehicles. Remember, the burden of proof is on you, the victim.
An insurance adjuster’s job is to minimize costs to its company. They are good at their job, so they may appear to be helpful. Never give a statement to an insurance company without consulting a lawyer. Never sign a release of your medical records without consulting a lawyer. A crafty insurance adjuster will use this against you.
If I file a personal injury claim, will I have to go to court?
Most cases do not go to court. We will gather all of the evidence to prove your case. We will make sure we know your full medical status by talking to your doctors and acquiring your medical records and bills. We will contact your employer to prove loss of wages and benefits. We will prepare a formal written demand package to present to the insurance company and begin negotiations. If the insurance company agrees to pay and you wish to settle for that amount, your case will not go to court. Some cases do not settle and proceed into litigation. You need an experienced law firm to put you in your best position.
