How To Know If You Really Need a Lawyer?

If you can answer “yes” to any of the following questions, you really do need a lawyer.

  1. Have I been injured in a car, motorcycle, bicycle, pedestrian or commercial truck accident?
  2. Have I been personally injured at work, from a dog bite, suffered a ‘slip and fall’ or been injured on someone else’s premises?

Insurance companies might try to settle with you by offering you a cash payment far less than what you actually deserve based on your injuries.  Don’t talk to them.  An attorney will protect your rights and will be on YOUR side. It make sense to have an expert communicate with insurance companies on your behalf and “have your back” so you receive every dollar you deserve.

It’s the job of insurance companies to save as much money as possible, and they do that by attempting to settle with you directly and quickly before you have a chance to find representation.  Don’t let them intimidate you with dollar signs and convince you that a quick fix can be had if you only sign a settlement agreement.  A good attorney will review your case and work directly with the insurance companies on your behalf, saving you the time of learning the lingo and understanding every minute detail of the law and how it applies to your situation.

You might be thinking, “I’m not an ambulance chaser, and I don’t want to appear like I’m taking advantage of anyone.”  Because we deal with insurance companies every day, we get it.  We know what’s fair and reasonable, and what isn’t.  We will fight for you and for what you deserve.
