Should I Try to Settle My Serious Injury Case Myself?
No. Insurance adjusters are trained to save money for the insurance company. They will not pay you any money for your injuries unless it is less than what you are entitled to receive. Many insurance companies try to intimidate people who are not represented by a lawyer into taking less money than the law allows. Instead, if you are dealing with a car wreck you should seek the advice of car accident lawyer that is board certified in personal injury trial law. If the insurance company wants to interview you regarding your accident, please know that they are doing this to reduce the amount of compensation they will have to pay or defeat your claim completely.
In some cases insurance companies have led victims to believe that they are negotiating in good faith. If this negotiation goes beyond 2 years after the date of the accident, the statute of limitations will have passed destroying the victim’s ability to file a claim for their injuries.
