The Value Of Having An Attorney Representing You During Your Personal Injury Claim

If you were to ask any insurance company representative if you needed legal representation for your personal injury claim, you would get a resounding "no" every time. They would tell you that an attorney would not change the amount of your settlement and that all the lawyer would do is take a portion of it as a contingency fee.

In fact, insurance company representatives will say almost anything to keep you from seeking legal representation, including the possible threat of taking their settlement offer off the table if you do not accept it immediately. Why would they do these things? Because they know that an experienced Ohio personal injury attorney can help you obtain the maximum compensation they are so desperately trying to avoid paying.

Why You Need An Attorney Beside You From The Start

Insurance adjusters are trained to deny claims whenever possible or, if they can't be denied, to settle them for as little as possible. They prey on injury victims who just want to recover from their injuries and move on with their lives. Insurance adjusters exploit victims' lack of knowledge about their rights in these cases and try to sell them on lowball offers that sometimes do not even cover their initial medical expenses.

Having an attorney representing you from the time you are injured lets the insurance company know that your claim should be taken seriously. Research has shown that people who have legal representation generally receive better settlements — even after attorney fees are taken out — than they would have if they had attempted to negotiate a settlement on their own.
