What Will Hiring an Attorney Do for My Personal Injury Case?
Insurance companies' strategies are to deny and delay claims and by hiring an attorney you accomplish a couple things. You legitimize your claim - if you don’t have an attorney, the farthest you will probably get is sending a letter demanding some sort of payment. If they don't comply with your request or refuse to speak with you, the only option you have left is to file a lawsuit. They know that by the time you figure this out, you are deep into debt with medical bills and you have lost countless hours, days, weeks and months in where an attorney would have been able to investigate and control the flow of information.
Oftentimes without an attorney, I liken it to a baseball game. These insurance companies have been playing this game for 30 or 40 years and they know the rules of the game. Now even the most intelligent layperson can’t compete with them-- they just haven't been playing the game for 30 or 40 years. The way to even the playing field is to make sure you hire an attorney who does know the process. This is the best way you can look out for your interests and make sure that at the end of the day, your legal rights are handled the best way possible.
