Should you hire a NY accident attorney? It’s one of the most pressing questions facing victims. Many people hesitate to call. They think they can handle their claim alone. In some cases, they’re right. In far too many cases, they’re wrong.
Insurance companies notoriously lowball victims who are not represented by an attorney. Insurance companies believe that they can trick and intimidate unrepresented accident victims into accepting an offer to settle their case that is below the true value of the case. Moreover, injuries that appear minor at first can develop into serious injuries. Without an experienced accident lawyer to offer advice, unrepresented accident victims frequently accept the insurance company’s settlement offer too soon. And once you take the insurance company’s offer, you can’t re-open the case if the injuries turn out to be more serious than you thought.
Whether you’ve suffered from medical malpractice, a car accident, a dog bite, or a slip and fall, it’s always a good idea to explore your options and cover your bases. At the very least, a quick call to an attorney may save you a great deal of time, money, and hassle.
