Yes, personal injury attorneys do handle everything regarding your case, including insurance calls. Typically, the opposing party's insurance company will contact the victim and ask for a settlement, hoping that they haven't had the opportunity to discuss with an attorney yet. We strongly recommend that you do not give any statements to the opposing party's insurance representatives and that you let the personal injury attorney discuss with them.
The answer is yes, our law firm deals with all types of insurance calls. When you have been in an accident that qualifies as a personal injury case (be it a car crash or a slip and fall), you are entitled to receive damages for your injuries from the negligent party. The compensation is received through the insurance company of the at-fault party. So whether it is a Miami car accident or a Florida medical error, we always get in touch with the insurance company and take the pressure and stress off of our clients. We usually represent clients at the meetings with the insurance claim representative. We can exempt you from having to deal with all the paperwork and negotiation hassle.
You need to make sure you follow the advice below when dealing with an insurance company. If you have questions, please contact our Miami based office, where your legal rights are protected every step of the way. The Law Offices of Sean M. Cleary has more than 20 years of experience in dealing with insurance companies, and we can say that working with them can be tough and frustrating at times.
Insurance companies will often try to get you to accept their amount of the settlement, which can be far less than you expected. If your case is not clear-cut, be sure to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney before speaking to an insurance adjuster. Consulting an attorney will save you from making statements which may be damaging to your claim and which you may later regret.
