i already given recording statement to other party's insurance , and they accept fault , it is been one month , can i still write demand letter ? do i need attorney?
Assuming this refers to a motor vehicle accident, there is nothing preventing you from sending a demand letter on your own. However, many people in your situation turn to an attorney to assist them in presenting and settling claims regarding an accident since this situation presents several legal issues and nuances that could potentially be missed, before and after settlement, if you do not have counsel. While you may be able to resolve this on your own, it may be beneficial for you to consult an attorney so that you receive maximum compensation for any valid claims arising out of your accident.
Yes you can write your own demand letter. The better question is do you know how to write it? Remember that unrepresented claimants are not taken seriously by adjusters.
You can certainly write your own demand letter. Typically, a demand letter is sent to insurance companies once you are fully done treating. Liability acceptance and receiving proper compensation are two separate things attorneys deal with all of the time. You should consider talking to a personal injury attorney for more clarification and case review. Most attorneys offer a free consultation. Best of luck.
You do not mention if you were injured? If you were not injured and have no injuries, you do not need to write a demand letter. The carrier will just pay you a nuisance settlement of about $500 to close your bodily injury claim. If you were injured and received medical treatment, you should absolutely consult with a personal injury attorney. Most of us provide free consultations. There could be money left on the table that you are unaware of that an attorney can advise you of. Insurance companies do not take unrepresented claimants seriously because they know you have no idea what you are doing. Talk to a personal injury attorney first so they could at minimum put you on the right track. Hope this helps.
