Filing an Insurance Claim After an Injury Accident
An insurance company wants to settle injury cases for as little as possible. They may do this by rushing the process or using other tactics to get injured victims to accept a settlement for far less than they deserve. Often, they count on an accident victim taking whatever the insurer offers out of desperation.
An experienced personal injury lawyer will know how to negotiate with the insurance company to pursue the full compensation you deserve. Consult an attorney before you speak with the at-fault party’s insurance company. Trusting this process to a skilled lawyer is one of the most beneficial actions you can take for your legal case.
Personal Injury FAQs
You likely have many questions about what to do after an accident. Here are some answers to our personal injury clients’ most common questions.

Avoid speaking with insurance companies, and don’t post about your injury on social media. Don’t accept any settlement offers. Consult an attorney at our firm to help you through the legal process.
