As lawyers representing the injured, we investigate the many factors that cause auto collisions throughout the country. Speeding, driver fatigue, weather conditions, driver distractions and intoxication caused by drugs or alcohol, are just a few examples. In recent years,text messaging, tweeting and the use of cell phones while driving have greatly increased the dangers on our roads and highways.
Unfortunately, many people do not realize the fact that the insurance company does not work for the injured. Insurance adjusters work for the insurance companies only, and not for the injured. Their only priority is to protect the interest of the insurance companies. Often times, adjusters will make offers at a very early stage of an auto injury claim, sometimes even hours after a car accident. They purposely make these offers before the full extent of a person’s injuries are known. The insurance company’s goal is to give the injured party as little compensation as possible. Insurance adjusters are paid to minimize the value of claims, not to advise people about their rights. These are just a few of the reasons that illustrate why it is vital to hire an attorney who can tackle these issues, fight hard for your rights and protect your interests.
We always tell our clients to concentrate on the important things in life such as regaining their health and returning to their day-to-day life, while behind the scenes we deal with all the complicated legal issues and battle with the insurance companies on your behalf. At the Law Offices of Daniel J. Miller, LLC, we are very knowledgeable and experienced in these matters, and are here to protect your rights and fight for the compensation you deserve.
