Why do I need a lawyer?
When you or someone you know suffers from an injury due to somebody else’s action, it often seems that the person would offer to compensate you for your injury, or that their insurance company will do the right thing and offer a fair settlement. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen. Many people will not take responsibility for their actions, and insurance companies profit from under compensating accident victims.
An experienced personal injury lawyer knows how to build your case, how to negotiate your case with an insurance company, and, if necessary, how to take your case to trial. While it is possible to negotiate your claim with an insurance company yourself, insurance companies will typically do everything they can to give you the lowest possible settlement.
