Convincing A Stubborn Client To Accept A Settlement Offer Rather Than Going To Court

Talking a stubborn client into accepting a settlement offer

Many clients that I have represented have never been in an automobile accident or had a personal injury prior to contacting me. They are relying on my expertise and knowledge to guide them through the process. Usually, they will defer to my opinions about most matters about their case with one exception, whether to settle the claim or file a lawsuit. 

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!

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!!!

Low Policy Limits For Third Party Insurance In Car Accidents

When the driver of the other car involved in an accident has low policy limits

I just signed up a great new case!! There were 5 people in a vehicle involved in a car accident where 4 of the 5 people in the car were badly injured. The 5th person was somehow not injured. The driver of the other car made a left turn in front of my clients and a head-on collision ensued. From a quick glance at the police report, I can see that the other car is listed on top of the report which usually means that the police thought that he or she was at fault. The other car’s insurance company is Progressive, which is a good insurance company in Illinois. Everything looks great, or does it?
