Motor vehicle accidents occur almost every second of the day around the world. When someone becomes injured in an accident that was the fault of another driver, the victim has the right to pursue motor vehicle compensation payouts. Because the full burden of proving their claim lies with the plaintiff, it is imperative a lawyer is hired. Working with a lawyer will help to ensure the victim has the legal help they need so they can pursue a fair outcome.
Lawyers Help Victims Receive Greater Settlements
When an injured victim tries to seek compensation alone, they will often end up receiving an unfair outcome. This is because the insurance adjusters are not always fair in their approach to offering settlements.
Insurance adjusters are paid to work for their employers and protect the bottom line of the company. When the insurance adjuster is attempting to work on a claim, they will do their best to reduce the payout or deny the claim entirely. They will often work to make the injured victim think their claim is worth much less than it really is. If they can get the victim to settle for less, they save their company a great deal of money.
When a lawyer is working on behalf of their client, the insurance adjuster is more likely to be fair. The lawyer will send a demand letter to the insurance company, making demands for settlement. If the insurance company continues to be unfair during negotiations, a lawsuit can be pursued.
Those who hire a lawyer are generally able to receive a greater payout. Since injury lawyers work on contingency, injured victims are not required to pay any money for the lawyer’s services unless their case is won.
