Why you should hire an attorney after your car accident

Frequently, I meet with clients who ask me why they should hire an attorney when the insurance company has already told them that they will be fair with them. Here is the answer. Insurance companies are in the business of collecting premiums from their customers. They are not in business to pay claims. If they pay more claims than they collect in premiums, they would go out of business, hypothetically. In reality, insurance companies are nothing more than large hedge funds. They take the money from their customers and invest it for the profit of their shareholders.

Insurance companies pay adjusters to "adjust" the potential claim you have against their insured driver. What does adjust mean? Well, it does not mean give you everything you deserve. In this context, adjust means get you, the injured person, to accept as little money as possible to resolve your claim as you will accept. If anything, they are adjusting your expectations of what you deserve. My role as your personal injury attorney is to get the adjuster to give you as much money as possible. If I cannot get what I believe is fair compensation for you, I will take your case to trial. And insurance companies know that most people are not able to get a car wreck case ready for trial and successfully try the case against an insurance company armed with teams of lawyers and experts who are highly paid to minimize the value of your claim. Therefore, the settlement value of a claim is generally more when you hire an attorney than value of the case without an attorney.

When you choose to hire an attorney after your car wreck, you should make sure that attorney has the knowledge and experience necessary to handle your case. At the Gold Injury Law Firm, we have handled over 1000 car wreck cases since 1998 and helped over 3000 people recover millions of dollars from insurance companies. Before you accept a settlement from an insurance company, you should call the car wreck attorneys at the Gold Injury Law firm to have one of them evaluate your claim. There is no fee for this evaluation and there is no fee if we do not get you money.
