Why You Should Consult With a Personal Injury Attorney
Why Should You Consider Hiring an Attorney After a Motor Vehicle Accident?
An attorney can often obtain more money for your claim than you can obtain on your own. The goal of every insurance adjuster is to minimize claims payouts to increase the profits of the company. Adjusters are often rewarded by their employers for resolving claims quickly for a minimal sum or no compensation at all to the injured claimant. Therefore, the goal and purpose of an insurance company is in direct conflict with your best interests. The job of your attorney is to obtain the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries. Your attorney's sole job is to work on your behalf and fight the insurance company, in court if necessary, to obtain the best possible outcome for you.
In cases where you have a severe injury (broken bones, surgery, scars, a head injury, or other permanent injury) and in cases which involve criminal activity (hit and run, driving under the influence, driving under suspension, reckless behavior, or violations of laws and regulations, etc.), it's critical to retain an attorney to ensure that you're receiving the full value of your claim. Under these and other exceptional circumstances, you may be entitled to an award of punitive damages in addition to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. An attorney knows when to make a claim for punitive damages on your behalf.
In addition, you may be entitled to a recovery under multiple policies of insurance provided by other insurance carriers, including your own, who may provide coverage applicable to your claim. The attorneys at this firm have years of experience handling personal injury cases. We know how to assess the value of a case, and we know how to locate other sources of recovery for you. This is where the services of an attorney prove to be most valuable. It's critical that you consult with an attorney prior to signing any document presented to you by an insurance company. Without an attorney, you may be signing away your right to additional compensation for your injuries.

"Matt was my lawyer in a recent personal injury action. Matt is excellent in many ways. His grasp of the law. His willingness to research areas in which he knows 99% but wants to know 100%. His creativity--he thought of a new action which resulted in a better outcome than the original action. His communication skills. His profound concern for the well being (broadly defined) of his client. Last but not least, Matt is a great guy."
"Matt, thank you for your great work and due diligence in my case. Your firm is above reproach and professional. I will highly recommend."
"As a public school teacher, it's always important to let someone know when they do well. I am writing to thank Matt Willis for the exceptional service which he gave me in my recent legal matter. This is a first time for me in dealing with a legal issue, thankfully, and his handling of this lawsuit was superb. Right from the beginning, almost 2 years ago, we were well informed and kept abreast of all developments, the importance of keeping good records, and expectations of filing a lawsuit. I was guided very clearly through the legal system and his responses to questions or concerns was quick and timely. It was obvious from the beginning that he was competent and knowledgeable with a great deal of experience, and we knew we were in good hands. Paralegal Nikki Tolman was very helpful too and also provided us with excellent service. The lawsuit was finalized, and we were overall very pleased with the outcome. Thank you again."
What Can You Expect Following a Car Accident?
Your insurance company may quickly offer a settlement that may be sufficient to cover your losses. This is particularly true in cases where your injuries are minor and the property damage is negligible. Is that the case with your accident? Are you sure?
