You have probably seen ads on T.V., radio, and billboards for personal injury lawyers, but what exactly do personal injury lawyers do? That is a fair question. In cases of serious injuries suffered in a car accident, truck accident, injury on property, medical malpractice, or any other type of accident caused by someone else’s negligence, a Bowling Green personal injury lawyer helps file a claim against the at-fault party’s insurance policy or sue them directly to recover damages. While the insurance company or the at-fault party may not want to admit fault, we help injured victims build a case to prove negligence. The rest is negotiating for damages.
If you have ever had to file a claim, you probably know what a claims adjuster is. A claims adjuster analyzes your claim and determines how much it is worth. They offer you a (usually insultingly low) number and you (hopefully) reject it. Today, insurance companies employ sophisticated claims adjuster software to give the illusion of objectivity. They will present this number as if it is an objective fact in the hopes that a claimant wants to avoid fighting for more money.
The Bowling Green, Ohio personal injury attorneys at Lafferty, Gallagher, & Scott have years of experience dealing with insurance companies, their lowball offers, and their desire to shift the blame to injured parties. Our job is to get the highest possible settlement award for seriously injured victims.
When your injuries are severe, you will likely be missing time from work. You will be accruing medical expenses and unpaid bills. The stakes are high. The insurance company knows this. This is why they offer low figures to settle the claim quickly. They know that you are in a tough spot and any amount of money will help. Yet playing the long game is how personal injury lawyers maximize the value of claims and get large settlements from otherwise unwilling insurance companies. The closer your case gets to trial, the more likely it is that the insurance company will fold and settle for the policy’s limit.
When you are seriously injured, you deserve a lawyer who you can count on to ensure that you are getting the highest possible settlement. The Law Firm of Lafferty, Gallagher, & Scott fights tirelessly to ensure that you are fairly compensated for your injuries.
When you are seriously injured, you need a Bowling Green injury lawyer that you can count on who will take your case personally and ensure you are not short-changed by the insurance company. Call Lafferty, Gallagher, & Scott today for a free consultation.
