Reasons to Consult an Attorney after a Personal Injury
Although nearly everyone pays for insurance for their health, or their car, or their home, very few actually file claims against their insurer. Insurance companies have intentionally made the claims process a complicated and tangled web that keeps the average person from being able to recover for legitimate injuries. That being said, the best thing you can do after being injured due to the negligence of another person is to consult with a personal injury attorney. Here are some reasons why:
To begin with, you need to keep in mind that insurance companies and their lawyers most likely do not care about your best interest. It is much more likely that they are more concerned with their profit margins more than you. They will do anything they can to either minimize your claim or to flat out deny it. They’ll argue that you had a delay in treatment, that you had some pre-existing conditions, that you were injured because of the actions of an unknown third party. They’ll even scour your social media accounts to try and deny your claim.
However, an experienced Personal Injury attorney can help plug any leaks in your claim before they harm you. They’ll ensure you get to medical professional to correctly diagnose your condition, and will hire the experts necessary to prove what happened to cause your injuries. They’ll also review your social media accounts and help educate you on what insurers may be looking for.
One of the most important aspects to having an experienced Personal Injury attorney represent you is that we speak the language of the insurance company. We know how to present your claim to insurance providers, and how to provide the correct information so that your claim is timely evaluated. We also demand the respect of the insurance claims adjusters and their attorneys. Without us, it’s David (You) vs. Goliath (the insurance company and their lawyers), and not only does Goliath have teams of people attempting to deny your claim, they do this everyday. Odds are, this is your first time, and the odds are stacked against you.
Just as you shouldn’t try and remove your own appendix, or fill your own cavity, you shouldn’t go it alone against the insurance company. It’s a complicated process and there are a myriad of ways to wreck your own claim. And you only get one chance. So let the experienced attorneys at the Kirbo Law Firm help you navigate the process.
