Are you wondering how a lawyer will make a difference after injuries in a car accident in Orange County or Los Angeles? The insurance adjuster in your case will probably tell you an attorney is not needed. The truth is insurance adjusters always offer far less than they are able and willing to pay for an injury settlement. Why is this?
The adjuster and the insurance company have one motive and incentive: maximize their profit by reducing the amount they pay on your claim. Every dollar they hold back from you goes straight to the bottom line profit of their business. I know this for a fact. I represented all of the major insurance carriers for the first 20 years of my career. I know their motives, strategies and tactics. This provides my clients with a significant advantage.
My name is Rivers Morrell and after more than 40 years of experience I can provide first hand perspective on how a lawyer will make a difference after injuries in a car accident. The first thing to look for in a personal injury attorney is proven experience and success at trial. It may surprise you to learn many injury lawyers have never successfully taken a case to a jury verdict. Most have never seen the inside of a court room and settle every one of their cases.
Insurance companies pay based upon their own risk. The greatest risk to an insurance company is having your case placed before a jury. Juries tend to force insurance companies to pay more money. Insurance companies keep extensive records on every attorney, and know which attorneys will take them to trial and defeat them and which will settle a case for far less than its worth. If I take a case I will obtain a lot more money from the insurance company than my clients could get on their own.
It may also surprise you to learn that we are able to negotiate the actual medical bills you have received in treatment for your injuries. Medical providers are happy to know they are certain to receive payment and know attorneys are held to a high legal standard. Thus, by increasing the amount you receive from the insurance company and reducing the amount owed to medical providers you have more resources to cover your bills, lost wages and fair compensation for having to endure your injuries.
I invite you to watch a video shot by a client, a former Marine Corps Captain, who was seriously injured in an accident while riding his motorcycle. He wanted to share his experiences and insight into how a lawyer will make a difference after injuries in a car accident and how to select a personal injury attorney. I think you will find it to be valuable.
