Insurance companies often intentionally deny, delay, and defend against LEGITIMATE CLAIMS to increase profits. They know how to use the complexity of the legal process in their favor. After you've been in an accident, you should be concentrating on getting the treatment you need and not having to deal with uncooperative insurance companies through confusing unfamiliar rules and procedures. This is why you shouldn't go it alone. You should engage the services of a knowledgeable and experienced attorney to sort things out and protect your interests-especially when the damages are high and/or the injuries severe. In fact, most insurance companies will give your claim more serious consideration if you have a knowledgeable attorney on your side. They often believe that a claim is not serious, or at least not one deserving high compensation, unless the victim has hired an attorney. Your lawyer will determine whether or not you have a case, perform a competent investigation, help you gather and organize the records and materials needed to pursue thee claim, and carry out negotiations with the insurance company and other parties to get the best result possible.
