Unfortunately, justice is not automatic, even when it's clear you've been injured by another person's carelessness.
In order to protect your legal rights, a number of issues must be carefully considered and addressed. These include:
Often these issues are very complex, and errors can be costly. If you make a mistake, such as missing a legal time deadline or notification requirement in an insurance policy, you could lose your right to make a claim. If you say the wrong thing to an adjuster, it could do great harm to the value of your claim.
Those are just a few reasons why proceeding without legal advice is a risky choice. The system is stacked against someone who is not represented by an attorney. Remember, insurance companies are in business to make money, and they do this by trying to pay you as little as they possibly can, and sometimes nothing at all. That's why the insurance companies have their own lawyers on staff, and why they train their adjusters to work the system to their own best advantage.
It's important to remember that, no matter how nice the insurance adjuster is to you, he or she works for the insurance company and not for you. The adjuster's goal is to minimize the value of your claim and this can be easily achieved, if you are not aware of your legal rights, and the steps that are needed to protect those rights. Your attorney's job is to protect your rights and to maximize the value of your claim. Generally, it is most advantageous to hire an attorney soon after an accident happens. But, even if some time has passed, a consultation with an attorney is important to make sure your rights are protected.
