You can try to pursue a personal injury claim on your own, but you risk never receiving the amount of money you truly deserve for your losses. Insurance companies typically want to settle cases quickly and for as little money as possible. They make their policies complicated and hard for the average person to decipher. They hire hard-nosed adjusters who are skilled at limiting claim amounts. Most injury victims lack the experience, resources, and time necessary to challenge insurance companies.
An experienced attorney with resources to devote to a case can pursue maximum compensation for you. At Zbinden & Curtis, we enlist top experts to advance a client’s case. We’re also familiar with tactics used by insurance companies and their representatives. We’re prepared to go toe to toe with them and work relentlessly until our clients get the settlement they deserve. If we have to, we can take a case to trial and argue the facts before a judge and jury.
Of course, in some cases, you may not need an attorney. If you were in a minor fender bender and were not injured, you likely would not need a lawyer. But in cases involving serious injury, or if there’s a dispute over who’s at fault, you would be wise to consult with an attorney. If the other driver is uninsured or underinsured, you should also talk to an attorney.
