Truth: You need a lawyer. This is probably your first serious insurance company claim and you are up against a professional insurance adjuster with a team of lawyers.
Insurance companies make billions of dollars by paying claimants less. The less they pay you, the more they make. The less your adjuster gets you to accept, the happier his boss is.
Our accident attorneys see client after client frustrated by trying to deal with an insurance adjuster directly, only to be offered a small fraction of the money we end up recovering for them.
In one recent case, the insurance company offered $2,000 to an accident victim in an effort to try and get him to settle his injury claim quickly and before he hired an attorney. This client called us and decided to hire Ostroff Injury Law. Once we were able to determine the seriousness of our client’s injuries, we were able to recover $25,000 from that same insurance company. Now we’re working hard to get an additional $75,000 in additional insurance benefits for this same client.
