An individual should always consult with a lawyer before agreeing to any type of settlement with an insurance company. In the most ideal situations, a victim of someone else’s negligence should immediately contact a lawyer after an accident. Any telephone calls from the insurance company to a victim or a representative of the victim could be used against them if the case goes to trial. The insurance company will make every attempt to settle for an amount that is much less than a victim should receive.
Negotiation skills by an experienced lawyer will ensure a settlement is fair and just. If the insurance company will not agree to a fair settlement, the lawyer will take the case to trial. A victim does not have to pay legal fees unless the lawyer wins the case. For more information and assistance about a personal injury case, please visit the Turney Law Firm.
