Insurance Companies Do Not Want You To Hire An Attorney
When you are injured by someone else’s negligence, you may not know where to turn for help. An early settlement offer from the insurance company may seem tempting because you don’t know what else to do. You may wonder why you need a lawyer if the insurance company is already offering you a check.
The attorneys at Killian Law Firm, LLC have been handling personal injury cases for decades and know that the insurance companies are working hard to pay you as little as possible for your claim. They hope you will accept their first offer before you even know the extent of your injuries, and certainly before you speak with an attorney. Once you settle, your door to compensation is closed forever. An experienced attorney will make sure you do not settle for less than your injury is worth.
Giving You An Edge In Negotiations
Once you hire an experienced attorney, insurance companies know you won’t be easily dismissed with a lowball offer. The threat of litigation becomes real, which is far riskier and more expensive for the insurance company. This gives you an edge when negotiating a settlement. Of course, your attorney must be able to back up the threat with a reputation for taking cases to trial. Our lead attorney has taken over 250 civil cases to trial all the way through verdict and has represented clients in over 60 appeals.
In addition, an experienced attorney will help you understand the extent of your damages and make sure you have a thorough understanding of your injuries and the medical care you will need now and in the future to address those injuries.
Choosing A Personal Injury Lawyer
Not all attorneys are the same. Look for one with experience in personal injury law. Beyond that, you want an attorney who has a reputation for success and gives clients personal attention, rather than handing them off to a case manager. You also want an attorney who does not shy away from taking cases to trial when necessary.
At Killian Law Firm, LLC, our attorneys handle each case personally and will always be willing to discuss yours. In addition, our lead attorney recovered over $215 million for personal injury clients from 1997 to 2017 and has won many honors and awards. We pride ourselves on being a neighborhood law firm. The Killian family has provided legal services in Glynn County for over 70 years.
