Dealing with the insurance company and aggressive insurance adjusters alone often means one thing: low-ball settlements.
- Doesn’t care about your pain or suffering
- Works in the best interests of the insurance company
- Will offer a low settlement in hopes that you’ll settle for less than you deserve
When an insurance adjuster calls you, be prepared for an aggressive adjuster who tries to get you to say something – anything – that would make you liable for the accident. We know how to deal with adjusters firsthand and will fight for every last dollar you deserve for your damages, medical bills, lost work, and pain and suffering.
We settle for maximum compensation and nothing less.

Our Austin car accident attorneys know firsthand how devastating a car accident can be. Compensation for your accident may not reverse the impact your accident had on your life, but it can help you move into the future with financial stability.
Careless drivers and insurance companies that always try to minimize settlements don’t have to be taken on alone – we can help.
Insurance companies will, in the majority of cases, challenge the losses in a car accident case. Your injuries and losses may come into question along with the medical care that you receive. Insurance adjusters will try to limit their liability in your claim, and it’s our job to fight back against ruthless adjusters to ensure that you get the maximum compensation you deserve.
What Do I Need to Prove My Damages?
Car accidents are complex. You’ll need to prove the damages you sustained while fending off aggressive insurance adjusters that try to minimize your losses. As your attorney, it’s our job to document everything.
Documentation is the evidence you’ll need to win your claim.
- Medical bills
- Medical records
- Employer records
If you’ve missed work due to your injuries, we’ll gather the records from your employer to have proof of the days and time you had to miss work.
We’ll contact all doctors and facilities where you were treated to ensure we have a clear record of your injuries and treatments.
In the event that you were seriously injured, there’s a chance that you’ll never recover from your injuries. Lifelong hardships may follow, and it’s up to us to talk to your doctors and specialists to better understand your prognosis.
Specialists can help us better understand your prognosis, hardships and impact that the accident will have on your day to day life.
Documentation gathered may also include:
- Future costs of treatment
- Injury prognosis
- Day to day life impact
We’ll gather all of your bills, treatment information, car repair estimates and all other pertinent information relating to your case. Documentation allows us to build a strong case on your behalf while ensuring we’re able to seek maximum damages for you.
