Do I Need An Attorney?

In order to protect your legal rights, a number of issues must be carefully considered and addressed. These include:

  • complying with various time deadlines,
  • maneuvering through the insurance company mine-field,
  • preserving and compiling evidence to prove your case, and presenting it in the most favorable light under the applicable law.
  • taking advantage of all benefits afforded under various laws and insurance policies.

Often these issues are very complex, and errors can be costly. If you make a mistake, such as missing a legal time deadline or notification requirement in an insurance policy, you could lose your right to make a claim. If you say the wrong thing to an adjuster, it could do great harm to the value of your claim.

Those are just a few reasons why proceeding without legal advice is a risky choice. The system is stacked against someone who is not represented by an attorney. Remember, insurance companies are in business to make money, and they do this by trying to pay you as little as they possibly can, and sometimes nothing at all. That's why the insurance companies have their own lawyers on staff, and why they train their adjusters to work the system to their own best advantage.

The Insurance Adjuster Is Not On Your Side

It's important to remember that, no matter how nice the insurance adjuster is to you, he or she works for the insurance company and not for you. The adjuster's goal is to minimize the value of your claim and this can be easily achieved, if you are not aware of your legal rights, and the steps that are needed to protect those rights. Your attorney's job is to protect your rights and to maximize the value of your claim. Generally, it is most advantageous to hire an attorney soon after an accident happens. But, even if some time has passed, a consultation with an attorney is important to make sure your rights are protected.

Steps that our attorneys take, to maximize the value of our clients' cases, include:

  • Determine all possible sources of insurance. Many times there are additional sources that injured people miss when filing a claim on their own. Examples can include: liability insurance, resident relative insurance, medical payment coverage on auto and other policies, uninsured motorist coverage, umbrella coverage, health insurance and disability insurance.
  • Take appropriate steps to ensure compliance with notice and other requirements in all insurance policies that may provide you with benefits.
  • Determine the applicable "statute of limitations" (the time frame in which your claim or other notice must be filed to preserve your rights) and take all required actions to protect those rights. This is very important because failure to comply with these deadlines will result in the loss of your right to make a claim.
  • Determine all parties who may be liable for your injuries.
  • Gather and preserve evidence: for example, this may include taking photographs of the scene, vehicles involved, and injuries, and get statements from witnesses, as may be appropriate.
  • Analyze the applicable statutes and case law in light of the facts of your particular case.
  • Develop a strategy for the best way to present the facts of your case in order to maximize the dollar recovery.
  • Determine the full extent of damages for all injuries - including pain and suffering, cost of medical care, and lost wages.
  • Determine the types of damages applicable to your case - compensatory, and possibly punitive damages as well.
  • Determine the fair value of your claim.
