Does Hiring an Accident Attorney Mean More Compensation?

Does Hiring an Accident Attorney Mean More Compensation? After a car accident in Dallas, insurance agents spring into action, hoping that they can get the accident victims to agree to a settlement before they speak with an attorney. Why? Because they know that after the injured party hires a Dallas car accident lawyer, they will likely have to pay the victim more than they want to.

An insurance agency is a business. While they may appear to have your best interests at heart, the truth is that they would rather save themselves a buck than ensure that you have enough money to pay for:

  • Current medical bills
  • Future medical treatment (surgery, rehabilitation and medical procedures)
  • Lost wages
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Therapy (mental and physical)
  • Repair or replacement of your vehicle
  • Modifications due to disability (in-home and vehicle)
  • Cost of assistive medical devices

Even if they say that they have figured in the costs of the above items, they are most likely offering you the lowest amount they can; leaving you without the money you so desperately need.

The Cost of an Accident is Higher Than You Think

The insurance company may have offered you an amount of money that seems fair. However, are you sure, absolutely sure, that you are going to have enough money to recover from your accident? As a Dallas car accident law firm with extensive experience in car crash litigation, we can help you determine if the offer from the insurance company will cover your costs.
