Is Your Insurance Company in Your Corner?
Having insurance provides peace of mind, but it doesn’t guarantee you’ll receive the best possible support after an accident. When you are injured in an accident, it pays to call a personal injury lawyer who knows the insurance process inside and out and will protect your interests at every step.
It’s always a good idea to seek legal advice following an accident. Even if your insurance company is being supportive, a personal injury specialist will go the extra distance to ensure you receive full and fair compensation.
The insurance process can be stressful. With a lawyer on your team, you can be sure you are meeting all the deadlines for starting a claim and collecting the evidence you need to be successful. A lawyer will also advise you on all of your legal rights, discuss your options for compensation, and clarify the benefits you’re entitled to under your specific insurance policy.
While insurers are technically on your side, they’re also focused on their own financial health. More importantly, in many cases, the losses resulting from your accident (e.g., pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, income loss, and out-of-pocket expenses, etc.) are not entirely reimbursed by your insurance company. They may also incorrectly assess your injuries, making it difficult to receive the recovery support you need. Here again, a lawyer can step in to support you in managing any disputes.
Finally, it’s important to remember that injuries from an accident can take a long time to heal. That’s why the team at Lerners will take the time to assess the present and long-term impacts of your injuries on your daily life and ensure they are captured by your claim.
