3 Common Myths About Handling An Injury Claim without an Attorney

Posted by Richard P. Hastings | Feb 05, 2017 | 0 Comments

Chances are that the insurance adjuster, who works for the insurance company that represents the at fault party, will have called you. That individual might apologize about the fact that their insured caused her accident. That individual might assure you that the two of you can work together to see to it that your medical bills are paid, that you are compensated for your lost income, and that you are paid for your pain and suffering. The adjuster will tell you that you should send all of your bills and out-of-pocket expenses so that they can be processed for payment. You are feeling very good about the situation because the adjuster is so understanding.

The insurance adjuster's job is to pay you the least amount of money possible for your accident or injury case. Some of what you are being told is an outright lie and it is communicated to you so that the insurance adjuster can deal directly with you and not have to deal with an experienced personal injury lawyer so they can pay you pennies on the dollar.

If you choose to work with the insurance company directly, without hiring an experienced accident attorney, then the only thing you will be working on is getting the least amount of money possible from the carrier. In most cases, you will not find an experienced accident lawyer to take your case after you have dealt with the insurance company on your own and have completely made a mess of your own case.

You don't have any money to hire an experienced accident lawyer?

Many people think that they cannot afford to hire experienced personal injury attorney. Our Connecticut accident attorneys handle these types of cases on a contingency fee basis. We also advance the costs to develop your case. Those costs and fees are only paid to us if we recover money damages for you. In other words, if there is no recovery then you will owe no legal fees and you will owe no costs. You do not need to come up with one penny out of your pocket to hire our experienced Connecticut personal injury attorneys to represent you in your accident or injury case.

We also provide free books, free advice, and free consultations. You can contact our office and speak directly with one of our experienced Connecticut accident lawyers to get your questions answered over the telephone, or you can set up a meeting where we will be happy to travel to meet with you, or you can fill out our brief online form and someone will contact you.

Don't wait! Contact Hastings, Cohan & Walsh, LLP today!

The insurance company has a team of professionals working for them trying to determine how to pay you the least amount of money possible. You will be at such a disadvantage if you attempt to handle your own accident or injury case without the assistance of an attorney. If you were experiencing a painful tooth that had to be pulled from your mouth, you could probably do that yourself, but few people would think to do that and instead would visit a dentist or oral surgeon.

The same is true of your accident or injury case. Do not make a mistake in attempting to handle your own Connecticut accident or injury case without first getting the advice of an experienced Connecticut personal injury lawyer.

Contact one of our professionals today to get answers to all of your questions.
