More times than not, your personal injury claim will be a battle with an insurance company. A trained adjuster will be assigned to your claim with the sole job of paying you the least amount possible. We do not like insurance companies. We are tired of hearing about the tactics insurance adjusters use to take advantage of persons legitimately hurt by the negligent people they insure. Attorney, Joel Hudson says, “before starting Carrollton Injury Law, I worked for years representing large insurance companies, successfully defending against hundreds of personal injury claims at several law firms in Dallas and Fort Worth. The inside knowledge I gained from my previous experiences about how insurance adjusters think and operate has been invaluable in my current practice of battling insurance companies on behalf of my personal injury clients.” We know that hiring an attorney will usually result with more money in our client’s pocket, even after taking the firm’s fee out of the settlement. But, in case you decide not to hire an attorney, I still do not want the insurance company to win or lowball your settlement offer.

After you have been injured in an accident, the negligent person’s insurance company will likely try to deny your claim or offer you a quick and fast settlement for far less than you deserve. Often times, an insurance company’s initial offer sounds like a lot of money — but when you consider the long-term impact of your injuries, the amount is often a fraction of what you deserve or may not even cover all of your medical bills. Sure, there are times when perhaps you should handle your own personal injury claim to avoid paying an attorney’s contingency fee. If so, you will have a better idea of how to handle with your own claim or whether you should consult with an attorney after reading our Free Article: “Top 10 Most Common Mistakes Made in Handling Your Own Injury Claim.”
