Do You Really Need An Attorney? Maybe not.
You DO Need An Attorney If….
The insurance company is trying to claim that you are partially responsible for an accident that was caused by someone else’ negligence. In Virginia this is called contributory negligence and means that the insurance company doesn’t have to pay you anything for you personal injuries.
Your injuries are serious. Getting an experienced Richmond auto accident lawyer can make a big difference in your recovery.
You prefer to focus on recovering from your injuries rather than dealing with the insurance company and their adjustors. It is a lot of work to deal with an insurance company. They love to make you do things to wear you down and delay your claim. Getting a good Richmond, VA car accident lawyer helps you to get on with your life and know that you are in good hands.
The insurance company is disputing the necessity of some of your medical treatment…they say that you do not need some of the treatment that your doctor’s have recommended.
Your claim is against a government entity or corporation. There are special laws that cover that kind of claim. You should contact a lawyer immediately if that is the case.
The insurance company claims that you are not injured or that you ‘should have healed by now’. Last time I checked, insurance adjusters are not doctors. Yet they will dispute your doctor’s advice as if they know better.
The insurance company is trying to blame some of your injuries on a past accident or other medical conditions.
The insurance adjustors are relentlessly calling and harassing you. Sometimes they will yell and scream at you.
The insurance adjustor is pressuring you to agree to a settlement before you have finished treatment for your injuries.
The insurance company wants you to attend an independent medical examination or functional capacity evaluation. They use their own doctors that will do the insurance company’s bidding.
You Don’t Need A Lawyer if…
You were not injured in the accident. Most personal injury lawyers only help people who were injured in an accident.
You recovered within a few days after the accident. If your total accident-related medical bills are below $1,000 you might be better off settling your own auto accident case.
There’s a new way to get valuable information in a Free Consumer Guide about your accident or injury claim before you talk to an insurance adjuster, hire a lawyer or sign any forms.
If you have been hurt by someone else’s carelessness you may not even need a lawyer, but you do need good quality information before dealing with the insurance adjuster on your own.
This Free Consumer Guide will keep you from being taken advantage of by the insurance adjuster. What the adjuster is trying to do is to minimize the value of your case, regardless of your injury.They will try to blame the accident on you. They will try to keep you from gaining valuable information about your rights. They will string you along for as long as they can – so you will not do the things necessary to protect your legal rights.
The adjuster will do anything to keep you under control – so that when the time comes for a settlement offer and they offer you pennies on the dollar for your injury, you will be powerless to fight them at that time because they have lulled you into a false sense that they would be fair with you. Fair is not a word that adjusters have in their vocabulary.
They will be nice to you – even joke with you – so as to keep you away from a lawyer, because adjusters know that an experienced lawyer will not put up with their games. Learn the adjusters’ tricks by ordering your FREE copy of the Free Consumer Guide.
