It is possible to file a claim for damages with an insurance company after an accident without a lawyer. But it is not in your best interests. The insurance company may try to take advantage of your financial situation by making you a lowball settlement offer and hoping you take it and go away. But the offer won't come close to covering all of the damages you've suffered. For example, your injury may require medical treatment in the future. An attorney will determine your total damages and knows how to get a settlement or award that meets your needs. The insurance company will have a lawyer. It's a good idea for you to have one, too.
How can I prove negligence led to my accident?
Our law firm can investigate your accident. We know where to look for evidence that another party's negligence led to the accident that left you injured. For example, a driver may have been distracted or was driving under the influence. Or a property owner may have failed to clean up a spill, causing you to slip and fall. We review all relevant documentation in your case, gather evidence and interview witnesses.
It's possible. But many times, we are able to work out a settlement with the insurance company that meets your needs. We do this by building the strongest case we can and refusing to back down. When the insurance company sees we are prepared to fight, they usually agree to negotiate. Since 1974, we have obtained more than $500 million in settlements and verdicts for clients.
