If you have been injured in a car accident, you may be desperate for your payment from the insurance company and ready to take any amount of money you can get. The insurance company knows this, and its goal is to pay you as little as possible. The first offer will almost definitely be for far less than you deserve and will need to cover your medical expenses and losses over time. If you accept their offer, you cannot go back and ask for more when you discover that you have been cheated and your expenses and losses are far, far greater than what you were paid.
You should always have an experienced car accident attorney review your case and the offer so that you can make an informed decision. In Las Vegas, contact Attorney Adam Smith for a free, no obligation, consultation.
You Do Not Pay Out of Pocket for Legal Help
The most common reasons why car accident victims forego legal representation is the belief that they will have to pay to talk to a lawyer and they simply can’t afford it. But, that’s not how it works. Personal injury attorneys like Adam Smith represent car accident victims on a contingency fee basis, so you don’t pay anything up front and you only pay your attorney if you get paid for your accident.
Why You Need a Lawyer
If you are not represented by an attorney, the insurance company assumes it can take advantage of you and get away with cheating you out of the money it owes you. Simply having an experienced car accident attorney on your side lets the insurance company know that you mean business and have someone standing up for you that knows their tricks and how to beat them.
With an attorney, it is still more likely than not that your case will be resolved with a settlement, but you will get much better offers and your attorney will do the negotiating for you. If a fair settlement cannot be reached, your attorney has the knowledge, experience and resources to fight for full compensation in court.
