Hiring A Lawyer For Your Personal Injury or Workers’ Compensation Claim: Myths by Insurance Adjusters

• Mar 26th, 2013

Many people are often skeptic when it comes to hiring a lawyer for your personal injury or workers’ compensation claim. They are often of the view that hiring a lawyer will only take a large piece of their pie and leave them with a lesser monetary amount from their claim than if they had done the claim on their own. Sunne Law is here to tell you that is just a myth. This myth has been long fueled by insurance adjusters. Can you think of the reason why?


Adjusters Work For The Insurance Company, Not You.

Insurance adjusters manage your claim, whether workers’ compensation or personal injury.  They work for the insurance company and the insurance company cares about maximizing its bottom line, not the injured person’s welfare. The adjuster will contact you as soon as possible after your personal injury accident before you have been given the chance to consult with a lawyer. They do this because they know once you contact a reputable attorney such as Sunne Law, they will pay more for your claim.  The adjuster will often make it seem as though the insurance company is addressing the injured person’s needs but make no mistake, the adjuster’s attentiveness is really an effort to keep the injured person from hiring a lawyer as their own advocate, a lawyer who specializes in workers’ compensation or personal injury claims.

Hiring A lawyer for your Workers’ Comp or Personal Injury Can Increase The Value Of Your Case

The truth is, many fail to understand that using the services of a lawyer will result in a substantial increase in the value of your personal injury or workers’ compensation claim.   Insurance adjusters are rewarded, as any employee, by results. Results for an insurance company would be closing cases for less than the expected cost projection.  If the adjuster can close your case for less, he or she will.  Remember, the adjuster works for the insurance company, not for you!  So this is even more incentive for them to close your claim with a small payout as much as possible.  If you have been injured on the job or in a personal injury you need an advocate that knows your rights and is aware of the  tactics used by the insurance company to minimize the value of your claim.

Will you receive less if you hire a lawyer?  While it is true that you do have to pay the lawyer a percentage of your settlement there is no doubt that your rights will be protected and you will recover more if you hire a lawyer.  The insurance company knows the law.  The average injured person does not.  The insurance company cares about its financial bottom line, not the injured worker.  The insurance company has its own lawyers advising it.  All of these factors put you at a distinct disadvantage, a disadvantage that will affect your overall monetary recovery.


You Absolutely Need A Lawyer To Represent Your Best Interest

A good lawyer wants you to receive the compensation you deserve for your injury and will work to ensure that you are properly compensated. If you have been involved in a workers’ compensation claim or personal injury accident and the insurance adjuster dealing with your claim is stressing that “you don’t need a lawyer”, take that as a sign that you absolutely need to hire a lawyer to represent your interests.  Protect yourself and call a lawyer.  Sunne Law has worked with the injured workers for over 24 years, fighting the insurance company and squeezing every last settlement dollar from its pockets.  If you would like to know more about your rights or the importance of having a lawyer on your side then then call Sunne Law at 404-240-0975.
