How To Obtain A Full And Fair Settlement Or Award
You probably bought your car insurance to protect yourself but hoped you would never have to use it. Most people feel this way, which is why you are not alone if you don't know what to do after an accident involving a passenger car, when you suffer injuries while riding your motorcycle or are involved in a collision with a commercial truck.
Here are three things everyone should know:
- Do not take the first offer. An insurer's first offer is almost never enough.
- Do not face the insurance company alone. Insurers have a small army of adjusters and lawyers whose job is to minimize your personal injury claim. We strongly believe that with an attorney on your side, you have a better chance of getting an award that actually covers all of your needs and expenses. At times, we do get calls from people with very minor claims who can handle things on their own. If so, we tell them they shouldn't need a lawyer.
- If you suffered any type of serious injury, then you will need legal help. It's that simple. Your case won't just be about getting the most money from the insurance company, we also have experience in helping you negotiate our clients' bills with health providers, structuring large settlements and providing other legal services that most people just don't know how to handle on their own.
If you have problems with canceled policies, denials or delays, JB Akers is accomplished in dealing with insurance claims and helping clients obtain access to the coverage they need.
