When proposing a settlement after a car accident, insurance agents and claims adjusters do not have your best interests in mind.

You may be surprised, but insurance agents and claims adjusters do not have your best interests in mind when making a settlement proposal after a car accident. In fact, many will go out of their way to discourage you from retaining a lawyer. They may tell you that you will receive more money without a lawyer representing you.
However, several reliable studies have shown that people typically get more money by retaining an experienced lawyer after an auto accident than if they took the insurance company’s initial offer without attorney representation.

This is even true if it is your own insurance company, especially if serious injuries are involved. How can this be? Because, even though you may be the one who pays the premiums, the insurance companies are working for their shareholders. They are trying to make the most profit possible, which includes collecting the highest premiums while paying out the least amount in claims possible.

Settling a car crash claim can also be detrimental if you are injured. If ailments or further injury occur down the road due to your car accident, you may be prohibited from recovery if you have already settled your car accident claim.

If you are involved in a car accident or have lost a family member in an automobile wreck, please seek counsel from an experienced personal injury attorney to protect your interests and maximize your compensation. Retaining an experienced car accident lawyer will ensure you have someone representing you who truly has your best interests at heart and will zealously fight to protect those interests and maximize your compensation.
