You may be feeling overwhelmed right now, as you deal with pain and treatment, mounting medical bills, lost income from missing work, frustrating conversations with the insurance adjuster, and a damaged vehicle. The insurance company representatives don’t seem very cooperative, do they? Well, you are not their client or their insured–they don’t have to be helpful to you. Or maybe they seem really nice. That can be even worse. Are their assertions about what the company will do for you fair? Is it the law? And do you need a lawyer or not? How can a lawyer help and what do you give up to get that help?
It is worth your time to learn the answers to these questions and many more. I offer two easy ways you can get answers.
After either or both of these steps, you will have a much better idea of what your options are and can then decide how to move forward. You may decide to hire a lawyer to help you. I would be privileged if you chose me as your lawyer, but you are under no obligation to do so.
Learn first. Then decide.
