You are driving along a major road in Broward County, Miami Beach, Coral Cables, or any other locality in Florida when you get t-boned by another vehicle. The damage to your vehicle is extensive and you suffer serious physical injuries in the collision. Should you hire a Miami personal injury lawyer? This is an important question many Floridians struggle with. You may have heard some erroneous information about lawyers and needing to pay a big retainer fee to even speak to a lawyer for a few minutes. Do not hesitate. Below are three important reasons why it makes sense for you to speak to a Miami, FL injury lawyer.
Insurance Companies Treat People Differently if They Don’t Have a Lawyer
Make no mistake about it. When an insurance adjuster gets a call or letter from an unrepresented claimant, they routinely treat that claimant differently. In fact, many insurance adjusters will try to reach out to you shortly after the accident and offer a quick settlement before you even think about contacting an experienced Miami personal injury attorney. There have even been instances where an insurance adjuster will mislead a claimant and say, “You don’t need a lawyer. They’ll just take a big chunk of your settlement and leave you with a pittance.”
Do not fall for these lies. Hire a lawyer.
Delegate the Hassle of Dealing with the Insurance Company to Your Miami Car Accident Attorney
After a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, or any other accident, you are probably dealing with some serious injuries. You may have been forced to miss a significant amount of time from work. If this is the case, you should spend your time focusing on getting your life back in order. That means devoting the necessary time for physical therapy and catching up with missed work. It does not mean you should have to spend your free time haggling with an insurance adjuster.
When you hire a Miami personal injury lawyer, you get the benefit of letting the lawyer take care of all the necessary paperwork and the task of negotiating with the insurance adjuster. Typically, your lawyer will prepare a demand package and send it to the adjuster assigned to your claim. The adjuster will then relay a settlement offer to your lawyer and your lawyer will then relay that offer to you. The time you spend on your claim should be focused on helping your lawyer get a number that you are comfortable with in terms of settlement.
Delegating the task of dealing with the insurance adjuster will save you time and relieve some unnecessary stress.
