After an accident, the primary person looking out for your best interests is you. That is why it is so important to make all the right decisions, including contacting a lawyer who can carefully walk you through all of your options. Accident cases require a deep understanding of every legal nuance involved, such as the investigation of the accident scene, a determination of the responsible party, and a determination of the potential damages. The importance of hiring the right lawyer will ensure that you are awarded a complete and fair settlement. Here are three items you must demand from your personal injury attorney:
1. When bill collectors are harassing you, it makes it even harder to heal. At the Law Offices of Paul J. Fina we understand that peace of mind is essential to the healing process. We will work diligently to stop the harassing creditor calls.
2. Your medical bills may be higher than the insurance policy limits. At the Law Offices of Paul J. Fina you will get money in your pocket, regardless of the insurance policy limits, or we will not take a fee.
3. Trying to settle your auto injury claim may have seemed like a good idea at first, but now it seems like the adjuster just isn’t offering enough. In fact, a recent study conducted by the Insurance Research Council (IRC), an organization supported by property and casualty insurance companies, compared the settlements paid to injured persons who hired lawyers with the settlements received by people who handled their cases themselves. The study showed that on average people who hired an attorney received three and a half times more money in settlements than those who didn’t hire a lawyer. If you’ve already received an offer from the insurance company, the Law Offices of Paul J. Fina will get you more cash in your pocket or you won’t pay an attorney fee.
