My son suffered minor injuries when another driver hit our car. Can I handle the insurance claim on my own or do I need an attorney?

Our answer may surprise you. It is true that people don’t always need personal injury lawyers to handle their auto accident claims; however, when injuries are involved, it is typically in your best interest to have an attorney in your corner fighting to make sure you receive the maximum compensation available to you.

Insurance adjusters are notorious for making accident victims feel like their injury claims aren’t worth more than the first settlement offer they present; however, insurance companies have room to be negotiated up from their first lowball offer. Experienced attorneys know how to negotiate with insurance adjusters and know what a case may be worth.

Most personal injury lawyers in Florida offer free consultations, so you have nothing to lose by talking with an attorney about your case in more detail. You might decide you don’t need a lawyer, but you should hear what a knowledgeable attorney has to say about your case.
