Injury Victims Get Better Compensation With an Attorney
Another IRC study, “Auto Injuries: Claiming Behavior and Its Impact on Insurance Costs,” found that for specific bodily injuries, the average payout for car accident injuries were 3.5 times higher for claimants who hired a lawyer. It is worth taking note that even the insurance industry’s own studies show that auto accident attorneys achieve better results.
An insurance adjuster’s job is to settle your injury claim for as little as possible, and if you do not have a lawyer, the insurance company may offer you much less than your claim is worth. An experienced car accident attorney can inform you of the real value of your case, and when the insurance company knows you are represented by an attorney willing to take your case to trial, you are likely to receive a much higher settlement offer.
