Who To Watch Out For In Personal Injury

Not every player in the game is on the up and up.

Here is a list of people you may run into while you seek compensation:

The idea of being compensated when you have been harmed is ancient. But not every player in the game is on the up and up.

Here is a list of people you may run into while you seek compensation:

The Beginner. This is a newly graduated lawyer who has zero personal injury experience - but promises you the world. You don't want to be a lawyer's first client.

The Settler. This is a personal injury lawyer who works hand in glove to settle injury suits on the cheap. Some of these lawyers have never set foot in a courtroom.

The Ambulance Chaser. A hyper-aggressive lawyer who haunts emergency rooms looking for clients.

The Mill. This is the firm that advertises on TV, maybe with an impressive, gray-haired head attorney. But when you sign up with them, you work exclusively with paralegals and office staff.

Your New Best Friend. This is the insurance company representative or claims adjuster who seems so sympathetic - but is really trying to get you to settle quickly, without talking to a lawyer.

The Troll. This is a new one -- someone who scans police and hospital records to find injured people - and then sells your name to quick-buck medical providers, who try to keep you from hiring an attorney.

The Belittler. This is the insurance company lawyer that takes pains to minimize your injury - even if you are paralyzed or have lost a loved one -- and implies that you are faking. He has one job - minimizing the money his client pays you.

With this colorful cast of characters, you may be wondering, How do I get through this?

The answer is always: Look for an attorney who has been around the block, who has successfully represented clients just like you, with the same exact problem. Someone who is wise to the antics of all these other players, and will guide you to the compensation that is so important to you.
