If you have a MetLife auto insurance claim after a car accident in Florida, the attorneys at The Law Offices of David M. Benenfeld, P.A. can handle your claim while you focus on your physical and emotional recovery. Contact us now so that we can fight for maximum compensation. No recovery, no fee.
When you are injured in a car accident, in most cases, your claim for compensation is against the at-fault driver’s insurance company. Your claim may be resolved through a settlement; or, if the insurance company does not make a fair settlement offer, you may need to take your claim to trial.
While many people try to deal with MetLife and the other auto insurance companies on their own, this is usually a mistake. Why? Because the insurance companies are skilled at handling auto accident claims, and their goal in every claim is to minimize the victim’s financial recovery. As a result, you may receive a settlement offer without even realizing that it represents full and final settlement of your claim, and you may be asked to sign a settlement without being advised that signing it amounts to a waiver of all of your legal rights.
Florida Car Accident Lawyers for MetLife Insurance Claims
At The Law Offices of David M. Benenfeld, P.A., our lawyers bring decades of experience to representing individuals and families in Florida auto accident claims. Our lawyers regularly handle both third-party insurance claims (seeking compensation from an at-fault driver’s insurance company) and claims for uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage (seeking compensation from your own insurance company). If you have been injured in an accident and are dealing with MetLife, we can help you win the compensation you deserve.
Five Reasons Not to Deal with MetLife Auto Insurance on Your Own
1. You Will Be the Only One with Your Best Interests in Mind.
If you try to handle your MetLife auto insurance claim on your own, you will be the only one with your best interests in mind. While the adjuster assigned to your claim may act like he or she wants to help you, the truth of the matter is that he or she is getting paid to minimize your financial recovery. Without a competent lawyer handling your claim for you, you will not have anyone involved who is focused on protecting your interests during the process.
2. Anything You Say May Be Used Against You.
When you deal with MetLife directly, anything you say may be used against you. For example, if you say, “I’m not sure if I was speeding,” or, “I guess it’s possible I could have been at fault,” the adjuster assigned to your claim will use these types of statements to deny your recovery. Remember, when pursuing a compensation claim, the burden of proof is on you. If the insurance company is not convinced that another driver was at fault, you are not going to recover the compensation you deserve.
3. You Will Not Know What is a Fair Settlement for Your Claim.
MetLife’s initial offer may seem like a lot. A check for $2,5000 or even $5,000 may be more than enough to cover your expenses. But, when you understand all of the current and future losses for which compensation is available under Florida law, you will likely see that any settlement offer you receive is only a small fraction of the true amount you are entitled to recover. An experienced attorney will be able to calculate your losses and help you avoid accepting a small settlement.
4. If You Settle, Your Claim Will Be Over.
Once you settle, your claim is over. If you settle for less than you deserve, you will be out of luck. MetLife will be well within its rights to deny you additional compensation, and you will be left with the financial burden of someone else’s mistake.
5. It Costs Nothing Out of Pocket to Hire Experienced Legal Representation.
At The Law Offices of David M. Benenfeld, P.A., it costs you nothing out of pocket to have our attorneys handle your claim. We handle all auto accident cases on a contingency-fee basis, which means that you only pay if we secure a financial recovery. Before you settle, we will let you know exactly how much you can expect to take home, and we will help you decide if this is enough or if you should fight for more at trial.
