Do I Really Need Personal Injury Attorney Help?
When you’ve gotten into the pickle of a bad accident, you’ve really got to understand the way insurance companies run their operations. Some insurance companies have been known to use every trick in the book to deny, or devalue your liability insurance claims (Read more here about auto insurance bad faith law.)
Tyrannical insurance companies are known to use unsavory, yet legal tactics to bully and play “hide the ball” with unrepresented parties. They will try and use procedures like demanding to record your phone calls, and ask you loaded questions, to try and impeach you later. The big insurance carriers have trained their staff in the magical techniques of delay, deny, defend, and an unrepresented victim who is already vulnerable can often be exploited, and easily convinced, or “programmed” to accept much less than their insurance claims is worth. Worse still, adjustors are experts and stringing you along until your right to sue is expired under the Statute of Limitations.
In any event, all these tactics assure the carrier that the settlements will be avoided, or very low in comparison to the compensation forked over for losses faced by those parties who have their own lawyers. These multinational corporations simply are not in business to research your claims in an un-biased manner. Even when they pay a third party to research the value of your claim, it is done with a mind of paying the smallest possible amount, let alone its “fair market value”. Are you understanding this so far? In any event, there is no substitute for a lawshark, such as those found at Ehline Law Firm PC, when you want to recover for the impact this bad situation has caused you. Contact our firm and we can at least give you a free case analysis and advise you on how best to proceed, even if you do not elect to retain us.
The comedy that shows how silly insurance companies are in their low ball offers to parties without a lawyer is fully demonstrated by their own industry funded studies dealing with parties acting in propria persona. The Insurance Research Council (IRC), conducts paid research for many of the countries major property & casualty associations, including insurance companies. Their case studies comparing final settlement valuations, contrasted victims who did, and those who did not retain legal counsel.
In fact, their own industry experts concluded that wounded victims who hired negligence law attorneys received on average, more than a forty percent (40%) greater monetary pay out at the final settlement, when compared to the individual who elected to represent himself. This study goes on to show that these net payouts were still higher after the attorneys took their portion out for their contractually agreed upon contingency fee!
The final nail in the coffin to an unrepresented party, is that this same study shows that the settlements paid in bodily injury type claims, was not just a little bit higher, parties with attorneys recovered Seventy-Nine percent (79%) of the total insurance payments, despite the fact that they made up less than half of all claims presented for resolution. If that does not convince you that you need a lawyer, nothing will.
As of the 2000 census, Manhattan Beach, California, had a population of 33,852. This city is located in a crowded beach community, with lots of tourists and recreation seekers. This is a hotbed for personal injury accidents, in particular, those from drunk driving wrecks and injuries.
