Why you need an attorney to help you file a successful claim
After filing a claim, an insurance company may give you a feedback that you had not anticipated. In such a case, the insurance claim may end up as a legal dispute between you, the policyholder, and the insurance company.The differences often result from insurance companies being profit-making enterprises that sometimes seek to hold some claims to avoid losses. Insurance companies often train their adjusters and agents to offer little claim settlements to maximize their profits. In some instances, they even fail to uphold fairness while apprehending settlements.
For this reason, clients are forced to look for legal assistance to settle the resulting disputes. Some of the legal services that require an experienced attorney’s intervention include uninsured or underinsured motorist claims, personal injury protection claims, life insurance claims, and property and casualty claims. Without the help of a lawyer, insurance-related disputes can cause financial and emotional stress to claimants.

For instance, most general practice attorneys will see liabilities from public car insurance policies but skilled lawyers are able to determine additional obligations such as uninsured and underinsured motorist’s coverage.
Drunken Driving Accidents
Lawyers should be aggressive when dealing with cases involving drunk drivers. Often, drunk driving cases result in higher compensation compared to other cases of negligence. If a drunk driver is held guilty before a court of justice, their insurance policies should be held liable to compensate for medical expenses of those injured, lost wages, pain and suffering among other losses.Our lawyers will look for tangible evidence of drunk driving with supporting evidence from the driver’s traffic violations records. If the attorneys establish that the driver had a history of negligence, they will utilize the evidence to help clients get maximum compensation.

General attorneys often shy away from such cases because due to the difficulties involved in getting evidence to prove liability.Despite the difficulties, experienced lawyers have dealt with such cases and succeeded to identify negligence in part of the train driver or the railway company. Our lawyers often have to generate evidence from the train’s data recorder such as speed and time when the whistle was blown.
Permanent Disabilities Resulting From Personal Injury
Traumatic brain and spinal cord injury from accidents can lead to disabilities. For this reason, the affected parties are forced to live a life of dependency. Our lawyers will strive to ensure that clients get fair insurance compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering, and costs for the current and future medical expenses that they will incur.
Our attorneys help families that have lost loved ones to auto accidents, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, and other types of accidents. They also provide legal advice before signing any insurance form concerning wrongful death. On agreeing to represent the family, the attorneys move to establish how the death occurred. They hire investigators who help in exposing the truth.
Nursing home abuse
Some insurance companies place little value on death or injury of an elderly person in a nursing home. They support their low compensations for such acts by the fact that the elderly are economically unproductive.Our lawyers treat all cases of nursing negligence with the weight they deserve. The elderly may not have a long lifespan but it does not mean they should suffer wrongful deaths. Our lawyers will help our clients to hold nursing facilities accountable for negligence where wrongful deaths occur within them.
