If you are injured in an accident, you need to give serious thought to the issue of seeking legal help. If you are injured in a car accident, calling a lawyer should be one of your first concerns. An auto insurance claim triggers an investigation by the insurance company, and they will have their own interests at heart. The other driver’s insurer will also conduct their own investigation. Without your own attorney, you may find yourself caught between the two, at the mercy of their legal departments. If a commercial vehicle is involved, such as a semi, issues of federal safety regulations may be involved, adding additional complication. By retaining our law firm, you can concentrate on recovering from your injuries, while we deal with the work of pressing your claim to insurers.
Similarly, if you suffer an injury on private or public property, retaining a lawyer can help you confront delays presented by the property owner’s insurer. Common accidents, such as the “trip-and-fall,” may settle quickly. However, coverage for exposure to hazardous chemicals, dog bite injuries, or accidents due to inadequate safety measures may exist but be harder to discover. It is important to have a skilled attorney inspect any insurance policies involved to determine the actual extent of coverage. This is especially true in cases where wrongful death is concerned. Having legal support can provide insulation from the stress of dealing with reluctant insurers in your time of grief.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, you may be entitled to more compensation than you are originally offered. We have the experience and knowledge to discover the true extent of insurance coverage that you are entitled to under the law.
