As a victim of personal injury, the first question you’re likely to hear from the insurance company is, “Will you be securing a personal injury attorney?” The insurance company hopes you won’t choose an attorney — and in fact, many victims of personal injury think they can negotiate a settlement without involving one.
The problem lies in that your goals and the goals of your insurance company are out of sync. You want fair and reasonable compensation for your injuries. The insurance company, on the other hand, is in the business to make profit — and as such, their primary goal is to pay you as little as possible on each claim.
Insurance Companies Hope You'll Go It Alone
If you don’t have an attorney, insurance companies secretly celebrate. With no personal injury attorney present, their odds of being able to pay out the minimum is much more likely and they are almost certain to negotiate accordingly. For that reason alone, it’s in your best interest to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer to learn more about your legal rights and potential means of recovery.
