After an accident, dealing with an insurance company on your own is difficult. Don’t forget, this is a business to them. The insurance company, like any other business, must make profits. Paying claims doesn’t help their bottom line.
Your insurance adjuster will typically take use two tactics that are not favorable to you.
First, they will try and pay you quickly and cheaply. That might sound good at first, but the problem is once you settle, your case is closed. That means if you have any future medical needs, the insurance company is out of the picture. So, be wary of quick money.
If the first tactic does not work, the second tactic is to delay. In Louisiana, you typically have only one year to file a lawsuit after an accident. The insurance company knows this, so they will try and stall until the anniversary passes. Of course, they’re not going to tell you about this.
They’re not going to explain any of your rights or options.
That’s my job. That’s why you should hire a lawyer.
We know their tricks. And we have tricks of our own.
More importantly, hiring a lawyer opens the door to several benefits for you.
I have arranged a network of physicians that can get you much needed medical care at no up front cost to you. If you have a soft tissue injury, we can introduce you to a chiropractor. If it is something more serious, we can arrange pain management or physical therapy. And eventually, if needed, we can consult an orthopedist or neurosurgeon.
Those skills are not unique to the Jones Law Firm. Any competent lawyer should protect your rights and find adequate medical care.
So, why should you hire the Jones Law Firm? What makes us unique? We give personal attention and care to every client. The big law firms cannot do that. You are just another number at the big firms.
