If you were involved in an accident for the first time and were injured, hit, or had your car or property damaged, odds are that the first thing you will want is to feel better. The second thing is that you will want to repair your car quickly, and finally, move on with your life.
The insurance companies know this and will do everything possible to help you fulfill your wish, but at what cost? In many cases the insurance company sends you a check for the damages that they believe you have the right to seek compensation for. DO NOT accept any checks! If you do, you are closing your case and the chances of a lawyer fighting for MAJOR and FAIR COMPENSATIONS for you.
In this case, immediately contact an accident lawyer who will guide you through the process and help you learn about the tactics that insurance companies use so that they do not pay what you really need.
To begin with, the appraisers will never give an accurate estimate of compensation, it is their job to aim low. That is why it is so important to have a lawyer.
After rejecting the initial offer and explaining to the insurance your own range of desired compensation, the appraiser will make a new offer, but it will always be the lowest amount possible.
Although you can do the negotiations yourself, insurers tend to take the claims made by a lawyer more seriously because the last thing that an insurance company wants to do is go to court. An accident lawyer will help you get the compensation you deserve.
