Since I’ll Be Dealing With My Own Insurance Company, Do I Need A Personal Injury Lawyer?
When making a personal injury claim under your uninsured motorist coverage, you’ll be negotiating with your own car insurance company. Many believe that since they are dealing with their own insurance company they will be taken care of as a loyal customer and treated more fairly. That would be a mistaken belief.
When you make a personal injury claim under your underinsured motorist coverage, your (or your relative’s) insurance company stands in the shoes of the at-fault driver. The insurance company will fight you just as hard. It does not matter if you have been a loyal customer and never missed a payment—the insurance company will try to pay you as little as possible. Oddly, it is sometimes actually more difficult to settle cases with your own insurance company than with the at-fault driver’s.
It is true that not every personal injury claim requires the help of an experienced personal injury law firm. However, whether you happen to be dealing with your own insurance, or another driver’s, should not influence your decision.
If you are injured through no fault of your own by a driver without car insurance, we strongly recommend that you contact Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers for a free consultation to talk over your options and discuss making an uninsured motorist injury claim. We are experienced in dealing with uninsured motorists claims and locating possible sources of uninsured motorist coverage.
