If you have been involved in a vehicle accident, truck accident, Ohio work accident, or your child has been injured, you can possibly file a personal injury claim. The first thing that you will want to do is contact an accident attorney to help you decide if you do in fact have a legitimate claim. The next step is to hire an attorney to guide you through the process and represent you.
After your accident, it is very likely that you will begin to get calls from the insurance company regarding your case. Their goal will be to try to get you to agree to a settlement as soon as possible. They attempt to settle cases early because it saves them money and it prevents you from receiving the full amount of compensation that you deserve.
An insurance adjuster is a professional who is employed by the insurance company. Their purpose is to keep costs as low as possible for the company. If they contact you after your accident and try to get you to settle your case, you may think that the amount of money they are offering is a lot, but you will later find out that the offer may not even cover your medical bills after all of your treatment. This is why we do not generally advise settling a case before all medical treatment is done.
Ideally, as an accident victim, you will consult a personal injury lawyer to represent you. After doing so, you can simply have them deal with all talks and negotiations with the insurance company. This can help you immensely as the stress of constant calls, transfers, and negotiations regarding your case are overwhelming.
