Q. What advantages do I gain by hiring a personal injury lawyer to handle my auto accident?

May 10th, 2016

A. When an attorney takes your auto-related personal injury case, you are relieved of dealing with all the headaches connected to dealing with the insurance companies that may be involved.

You have an advocate that is on your side. The insurance company, even your own, is never your advocate.

When you hire a competent, aggressive and experienced lawyer to negotiate your auto injury settlement, you usually walk away with more money than if you had tried to negotiate with the insurance companies on your own—even after you have paid attorney’s fees. Insurance companies know you don’t know the strategies and rules that attorneys take years to acquire. This can make a major difference if you do not have health insurance. You are less likely to be fooled into considering a poor offer a good settlement offer. A well-qualified personal injury attorney, like you will find at Boyd Buckingham, knows which costs should be included in the settlement. There are many that you might overlook.
