Settling Your Claim: Going in Alone
The process of filing a claim and going through the necessary steps to restore yourself to your pre-accident condition can be arduous. Going through the claims process without the proper knowledge of how insurance companies conduct business can make the process even more difficult.
Most insurance companies are rigid in the way they handle claims negotiations. They offer settlements that only cover the surface costs of your loss, without accounting for all the fees that come up later in your path to healing, and try to discount certain aspects of your treatment to give you a smaller settlement.
Throughout the years, we have taken on clients who have attempted to settle their own claims. They go into settlement negotiations with the belief that they can navigate the claims process as efficiently and effectively as a personal injury attorney. However, when they do so they do not always receive the same results.
The problem with negotiating with insurance companies on your own is that you do not have the same familiarity with the way insurance companies manage their claims as an attorney does. You are handling your claim without any insight into the process, which can make it difficult to make accurate judgement calls, and puts you at risk of accepting an improper settlement.
Additionally, as both injury claims and property damage claims have a statute of limitations, we have found that many people who manage their own claims have reached the precipice of exhausting their statutes, and turn to us to help them receive proper settlements before the statute ends. This gives us a limited amount of time to collect evidence and present a demand.

We conduct ourselves in a professional manner while, at the same time, catering to your needs.
