What Can I Expect from the Insurance Company of the Driver Who Hit Me?

Car AccidentWhen you have been hit by a negligent driver in a car accident, you may feel a bit confused about the entire process. Do you talk to the other side’s insurance company? When can you expect to receive compensation for your injuries and property damage? Do you need help from an attorney, or can you handle it yourself? These are common questions clients have after an accident. Attorney Joe Lucé can assist you with your insurance concerns. Here is a bit about what you can expect from the insurance company of the driver who hit you.

Attempts to Settle for Less

Insurance companies’ goal is to increase their bottom line. They do not act in your best interest, and their first inclination would be to settle the accident for the least amount possible. Do not sign anything or agree to settle before discussing your accident with an attorney. The attorney can help get you fair compensation for your accident, and with their years of experience, they will know what is an appropriate amount.

Make the Process Difficult

Insurance companies don’t make anything easy. They will try everything they can to make the process as difficult as possible. Their strategy is to make it so stressful and confusing that you will simply give up and settle rather than fight for what you are owed. When you hire an attorney, you don’t have to deal with the frustrations the insurance company dishes out. Instead, your attorney will take care of the entire process from start to finish.
