I have been in a car accident and have insurance. Why do I need a lawyer?

Even if you have insurance, after being involved in a car accident you should retain an attorney right away for one major primary reason. The insurance companies own internal study show that persons who've been injured and retain the services of a professional injury law firm like ours, on average receive an amount of compensation three to three and a half times those who try and represent themselves. That's even after the attorney's fees are factored in. Insurance companies know that injured people usually don't know their rights and they try and take advantage of that. Their whole job is to minimize the amount of compensation that they have to pay you after a claim. Well, an injury firm like ours, our entire job is to maximize your recovery.
