Dealing With Non-Standard Insurance Companies

Non-standard insurance companies

While there are many highly rated, good quality auto insurance companies out there, there are equally as many, if not more, sub or non-standard ones out there as well. These non-standard companies exist for several different reasons. As a consumer, be aware, because as the old adage goes, you get what you pay for!

What To Do When A Client Disappears On You

How to handle the situation when you cannot locate a client

Throughout my years of practice, it seems like every year I have a handful of clients that just up and disappear. The phone number is disconnected. The mail gets returned to sender. And thus, the file sits. Even though one of the first things that I tell all of my clients is to notify me if they move, change their phone number or plan on leaving town for an extended period of time, some of them just vanish. People, don’t do that!!

Don’t Steal Cases and Clients From Other Attorneys

Why stealing clients from other attorneys is not good practice

Every so often I will get a letter from another personal injury attorney letting me know that one of my clients is firing me and hiring him or her to represent them. Whenever this happens, a few things always run through my mind. First, why didn’t the new attorney call me first before stealing away my client? Second, wouldn’t the new attorney want to know about the case before he or she steals it from another attorney? And lastly, karma is a %*tch!!

If A Personal Injury Attorney Tells You How Much Money Your Case Is Worth On Day 1…………RUN!!!

Don't trust personal injury attorneys who will tell you what your case is worth shortly after the accident/incident happened

Often times I have had potential clients tell me that, “they spoke with another attorney and he/she guaranteed me that he/she would get me at least $10,000.00 on my accident claim.” My answer is always the same, “that is impossible!” It is 100% not possible to determine the value of a personal injury claim shortly after an accident or incident occurred.

Don’t Give Insurance Companies Recorded Statements Following A Car Accident If You Plan On Hiring An Attorney

Why you should not speak to opposing party's insurance company following an accident before speaking with an attorney

Insurance CompaniesMany auto insurance companies will contact the adverse party involved in an accident with their insured very shortly following an automobile accident. They will ask a myriad of questions about how the accident happened, injuries that were sustained, treatment at a hospital or doctor’s office and many other questions in great detail so that they can evaluate the merits of your claim. DO NOT TALK TO THE OTHER INSURANCE COMPANY UNTIL YOU CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY!!!
