When It Comes To Insurance Companies, What Do I Do If The Other Party’s Insurance Company Contacts Me? Should I Ever Provide A Statement?
If the other party’s insurance company contacts you, you should never provide a statement. I always advise my clients to not do anything, especially without the presence of their lawyer. You can just tell the insurance company that you are refrained from giving any statement, and to contact your lawyer.
How Is The Worth Of A Personal Injury Case Determined?
There are several factors that determine the worth of a case. The main factor is damages. Damages are broken down into several different types of categories. Your damages are determined by your injuries, the amount of money that you might have to pay for the case, the loss that you potentially have as a result of the accident, other factors including but not limited to how good of a complainant you are. It is important that you speak to a lawyer with experience in getting the most out of cases.
What Happens If I’m Hit By A Driver Who Is Uninsured Or Underinsured In Texas?
If you are hit by a driver who is uninsured or underinsured in Texas, hopefully, you have insurance and can make an uninsured or underinsured claim with your insurance provider. If so, the process is typically the same. You will still need to seek medical attention, get in with the provider to get treated, and make a claim to your insurance company to get compensated. Your insurance company will turn around and take care of the rest. In many cases, insurance companies will subrogate your claim and go after the party that injured you.
What Do You Say To Potential Clients Who Think Liability Is Clear And Want To Handle It On Their Own?
Simply because liability is clear that doesn’t mean you’re going to get the best offer or outcome in your case. In fact, my experience has shown that it is mostly the exact opposite. Insurance companies are designed and maintained to save themselves money. It’s important to have someone on your side that has experience, has dealt with insurance companies, and is not afraid to file a lawsuit. Insurance companies don’t give money because you’re a nice person that got into an accident. They give money because they don’t want to give more money.
I’ve had many cases in which somebody started out by doing it themselves. They thought it was going to be a simple case, only to get low-balled and/or have the insurance company deny liability. However, the moment a lawyer jumps on the case, those things seem to change very quickly. Therefore, it’s imperative to get somebody who knows what they’re doing to fight your case. It’s always the right thing to do. The best thing to do is to have someone on your side who knows what he or she is doing.
