At least you should consult with an attorney. Personally, I believe that you should hire an attorney on a contingency fee basis so there is no money out of your pocket

I would strongly suggest that you consult an attorney. In a significant injury case there are many issues that an attorney can help you with -- to maximize the outcome, make sure that all available insurance coverages are utilized, and that any medical liens or bills paid by you are minimized. The insurance adjuster's job is to pay as little as possible on the claim. If you wish to discuss this further, my office handles these types of claims on a contingent fee basis and could provide some guidance.Ask a similar question
I am very sorry to hear about your husband's accident and injuries. I hope he will recover well. I strongly suggest you contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Your husband has significant injuries and attempting to work with Geico on your own will prove to be difficult, time consuming and frustrating. Keep in mind, the insurance company is not on your side. Their main goal is to find a way to compensate your husband as little as possible for the injuries he has suffered. Insurance companies also tend to take advantage of unrepresented injuried parties. Please, do not give any statements to Geico until you contact a personal injury attorney. I am happy to help further if you need. Good luck to you.Ask a similar question
You absolutely should retain an attorney to represent you. Insurance companies are in the business of low balling non represented persons like yourself. They have all the power and experience, and you have likely never done this before. You very much need help to understand what is reasonable compensation for your injuries and to negotiate the settlement you deserve. Moreover, you will likely need help to figure out how to handle and negotiate with the hospitals and health insurance companies that are going to try to get a big slice of your settlement. Don't walk, run, to an attorney.Ask a similar question
I'm sorry to hear about your situation. That is a serious injury. DO NOT give the insurance company a recorded statement. DO NOT sign their forms that allow them to get your husband and son's medical records. DO call an experienced lawyer that handles these types of cases and get help quickly.

You should contact an experienced personal injury attorney if for no other reason to sit down with an attorney and have them explain the process to you regarding injury claims. GEICO has an incentive to resolve the matter for as little as they can, please keep that in mind in your discussions with GEICO. Generally speaking in severe injury cases it is almost never a bad idea to get advice from an attorney.
Good luck to you and if you would like I am available for consultation at (480) 838-9000.

I would strongly suggest you NOT negotiate a claim of this significance without an attorney. Geico is notorious for trying to settle for pennies on the dollar, especially in more serious injury claims. Make an appointment with an injury attorney who can provide you with all your legal options available. I personally offer a free consultation, and would be happy to meet with you for further discussion.

Sorry to hear about your situation. I think that you absolutely need an attorney on this one. On a small case you may be able to handle it on your own and may not need an attorney. In this situation an attorney will likely prove to be invaluable. There will be much more than just negotiating with Geico. Very likely you will be looking at a lien filed by the hospital and depending on your insurance situation you may have a health insurance company seeking reimbursement for medical expenses paid. It is unlikely that the girl who caused the accident will have adequate insurance to cover the extensive injuries to your husband and you will therefore want to see what assets or other potential insurance exists. You will want to look at your own policy to see if you have underinsured motorist coverage. You will want to see if there was any other person or entity responsible for the crash. Perhaps a bad road design or a vehicle that was not crashworthy. A lawyer can assist you with all of these things and give you the piece of mind of knowing that it is being done right with no stone unturned. This allows you to then concentrate on your husband and his health.Ask a similar question
