When it comes to the safety of pedestrians, Texas is among the most dangerous. According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, it was one of the four deadliest states for pedestrians in the […]
The biggest and most important question is "were you injured?" If you were not injured, you most likely do NOT need an attorney. Property damage claims are pretty well-regulated, and disputes can usually be solved without a lawyer.
If you were injured, you've likely already heard from the insurance company. You have no obligation to talk to them. Do not even entertain the idea of a settlement offer until your injuries have been FULLY treated. The insurance company always wants to settle quickly because once you settle, it's over. You cannot sue them after signing such an agreement. If a month later you find out that your shoulder will require surgery or a lifetime of physical therapy, guess what? You'll have to pay for it yourself.
Even discussing a settlement with the insurance adjuster is a bad idea. The insurance company may offer you, say, $2,000 up front. If you then throw out ANY counter, you've already likely hurt your case. Say you tell them that you'd settle for $10,000. Now, no matter what, even if you find out later that you need a $30,000 surgery, you can be certain they will never offer you any more than the $10,000 you already said you'd accept.
I understand the mentality of people who want to handle their own claims, but you must understand that this is never a good idea. Lawyers don't even represent themselves when they're hurt in an accident. Car accident and personal injury law is very complex, and there's a reason personal injury attorneys exist.
Insurance companies are not afraid to take your case to court. They have ZERO incentive to offer you a fair settlement because they know they will always win in court against a non-attorney.
