When the other party's insurance company is financially responsible for your damages, you need an experienced negotiator to help you secure the compensation you deserve. That's one of the major benefits of working with a Morgan & Morgan personal injury attorney.
As mentioned before, insurance companies don't always play fair. They morph into bullies when they realize they owe you financial compensation for their insured's negligence. Things could go from bad to worse if you don't have an attorney representing you.
Don't expect the insurance company to inform you about your rights and the actual value of your claim. This is because when it comes to matters concerning broken bone injuries, insurance companies know that they might have to pay more than medical expenses.
Earlier on, we discussed how you might be eligible for compensation for economic damages, such as the loss of wages due to the injury. But this is not something you'd expect your insurance company to tell you. Similarly, it's not the only type of damage that deserves compensation.
When insurance companies realize that you don't have a personal injury attorney working on your case, they'll play different tactics to frustrate the entire process. For example, they'll delay processing your claim while hoping that your bills will pile up, forcing you to accept less than what you deserve as compensation.
Some insurance providers will simply refuse to compensate you for your losses, citing various reasons such as underlying medical conditions that might have contributed to the injury. They'll do this even if they know they don't have any facts to support their allegations.
But that's not all - some will dare you to take the case to court. They know that you'll most likely not have the time, energy, or resources to pursue your claim. Moreover, because you don't have an attorney handling your case, insurance providers will also assume that you are unaware of your legal rights.
Unfortunately, not so many personal injury victims understand their rights. This is because personal injury is a wide area of law. Secondly, people don't go to work or run errands hoping that they'll get injured.
When you have a personal injury attorney fighting for your rights, you don't need to worry about complex legal terms or studying heaps of paperwork to understand your legal options. Instead, you can rest easy knowing that your case is in safe hands.
However, one thing most people don't realize is that not every personal injury attorney qualifies to solve their cases. Similarly, insurance companies are not intimidated by just any personal injury attorney. It takes the intervention of an established, proven, and results-oriented law firm to fight the big bullies.
That's where Morgan & Morgan — the largest personal injury law firm in the United States — comes in. Even though we have a team of over 800 attorneys, you can rest assured that we only hire the best in the industry. This is because we take our client's rights seriously.
We understand how much such cases mean to our clients. Most of our clients are hardworking people who just want to live a comfortable life while caring for their loved ones. And when their livelihood suffers a massive blow due to someone else's negligence, we step in to fight for their rights against the big bullies.
