A personal Injury Attorney can be critical to have on your side, whenever you have been injured due to the negligence of an individual or corporation. The Walker Law Firm has too often seen individuals attempt to handle their own cases. However, this self-approach often fails to recover what the injured party is entitled to for several distinct reasons. One reason is that if you handle your own injury claim an insurance carrier will usually start off offering you a minimal amount of money to go away. These offers are often called “nuisance value” offers. The injured party generally doesn’t know what he or she could attain to and will accept the nuisance offer. There are studies that show a claimant represented by legal counsel will ‘net’ over three times more money versus handling their own claim.
You can send the auto insurance carrier countless letters. You can demand a settlement. However, such communications will fall on deaf ears. Why you ask. Well, it is because the insurance company knows that a non-lawyer lacks the ability to handle their own lawsuit. Thus, the carrier has nothing to fear as their policyholder will have no alternative but to eventually accept the nuisance value offer. Unless they hire a personal injury attorney, which unfortunately many don’t.
Walker Texas Lawyer has handled over 25,000 personal injury claims. He has handled car accident injuries, motorcycle accident injuries, industrial accidents and more. Our firm has successfully disputed liability claims involving matters from minor to moderate injuries, as well as, catastrophic injury claims. There is no substitute for experience. Please note that every insurance carrier handles claims in a different manner. Thus, without having dealt with insurance carriers or adjusters, you will lack the knowledge of how to negotiate with them.
Our firm is respected by insurance carriers because they know if a fair settlement is not obtained we are not afraid to litigate your claim against them. We have tried many cases before a jury. As a result, we often obtain much better offers from insurance carriers than law firms that always seek to settle insurance claims rather than litigate personal injury claims when needed.
