This week attorney Jeff Weinstein will be speaking with Tina Wycough, Insurance Adjuster and Weinstein Law Pre-Lawsuit Case Manager. Tina has over 20 years experience in supervising claims against drunk drivers. Tina and Jeff will be discussing why someone who is injured by a drunk driver needs to hire a lawyer. If you are involved in a car accident where you sustain an injury you will want to seriously consider hiring an experienced personal injury law firm. An auto accident lawyer can help you recover losses by negotiating with insurance claims adjusters or by taking your case to court. While you may choose to negotiate with an insurance claims adjuster yourself, remember that claims adjusters are trained to settle your claim for as little money as possible. Also, once you accept money from an insurance company, your claim is settled and there is little an attorney can do at that point to recover more money if your injuries are more extensive than you originally thought. Keep in mind that insurance claims adjusters record conversations and try to establish liability and limit damages. A seasoned injury lawyer is experienced in negotiating with insurance companies; therefore, it is best to consult a car accident lawyer early to avoid financially painful mistakes. Also, people who utilize a car accident lawyer typically receive higher settlements than people who negotiate their own claims, even after paying legal expenses.
