Why Is It Important to Hire a Local Champaign-Urbana Car Accident Attorney?
The short answer is because insurance companies, and their representatives, cannot be trusted because they do not work for you. If you have been injured in a car accident, the next step after filing a police report and seeking treatment is to file a claim with your insurance company along with the insurance carrier for the at-fault party. It is an insurance carrier’s job to determine the value of your claim but they do not always have your best interests at heart.
Insurance companies have teams of lawyers and adjusters and their sole purpose is to deny a claim or settle the claim as quickly and as low value as possible. You can certainly try to take on these teams alone but they are aware that you have no idea what your legal rights are nor how much compensation is fair for your type of claim. They may fight you on how much medical care or how little medical care you have obtained or the timeframe in which you sought medical care. In other words, these teams are going to find any way to make this claim go away whether it is by an outright denial or paying as little as possible to settle the matter.
