The Insurance Adjuster Claims He’ll Take Care of Me. Do I Still Need A Lawyer?

One of the most important things to know about making an Orange County personal injury claim is that no insurance company is on your side. And no matter how personable your claims adjuster is, he is still works for the insurance company, while a personal injury attorney works for you.

Personal-Injury-ClaimsIf your claims adjuster tells you that you do not need an attorney, consider all the reasons he would not want an attorney handling your case. An attorney usually enables a claimant to get a higher settlement, which might reflect poorly on the adjuster whose performance is evaluated based on how much money he can save the insurance company. Also, insurance adjusters cannot contact a claimant directly if he has an attorney; instead, they must go through the attorney. An attorney’s involvement with a case may also result a lawsuit if the adjuster continues to offer less than what the attorney knows the claimant deserves.

It is almost always in your best interest to speak with an Orange County personal injury attorney instead of trying to negotiate a settlement by yourself. In fact, most of the insurance adjuster’s arguments that you shouldn’t hire an attorney fall apart under scrutiny. The claims adjuster may tell you that you will lose money because of the attorney’s fees. However, the large settlement that your attorney will likely be able to negotiate will likely result in you receiving more money even after attorney’s fees. The claims adjuster may tell you that getting an attorney will slow down the claims process and delay you getting your money. In reality, there is no time limit on your claim, and it is well worth taking the time to negotiate a settlement you deserve rather than accept a low settlement early. Most hospitals even allow you to defer payment until you recover damages.

If you have been injured in an accident and have to deal with the insurance company, you absolutely need an experienced and knowledgeable Orange County personal injury attorney on your side. Call dedicated Orange County personal injury attorney Samer Habbas today for a free initial consultation.

From the start of my untimely and horrific fall at the most unsafe flight of stairs. Which was in a privately owned complex, where by the way, the owners truly believed they were, as they say, “above the the law”. The MOST WISE DECISION I MADE WAS TO CONTACT THE HABBAS LAW FIRM! This firm from the initial meeting (they came to me!!) Photos were taken of all aspects of this poorly kept complex and a promise I shall never forget! They promised to take great care of me with medical professionals, fully inform me of all the correspondence with the opposing party/insurance company. Most of all have me compensated for the pain and misery the on site owners daughter put me and my daughter through! True to their word, SAM HABBAS AND ASSOCIATES LAW FIRM DID JUST THAT! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FIRM TO ANY AND ALL PERSONS WHO NEED A TRUSTWORTHY PROFESSIONAL LEGAL TEAM!!! From the initial meet and consultation, the scheduling of medical appointments, the medical professionals, the wonderful receptionists at HABBAS LAW FIRM, my paralegal SUMMER, and of course my team of THE BEST OF THE BEST LAWYERS! 5💫 rating! By the way, settlement negotiations came and in a matter of minutes HABBAS LAW FIRM upped and secured a handsome settlement. Thank you 🙏 to all the most amazing team whom I shall always recommend, and appreciate! P.s This poorly managed complex was forced to make all repairs and changes to meet safety code!👍🏼Amanda Inland Empireread more

I was in a terrible wreck back in October. I had multiple broken bones and a severe concussion. I started searching for lawyers immediately and after interviewing 5 different lawyers. I felt Samer was going to do the best to represent me and he did. Samer, Mike, and Jazmine went above and beyond to make sure everything was in order from dealing with insurance companies to getting the medical treatment I needed. They answer their phones and if they do miss your call they actually call you back in a timely manner. They made sure I was taken care of, the service they provide to their clients is unrivaled. I hope nothing like this ever happens to me again but if it does Samer and Mike have earned my business for life. They are hands down the best personal injury attorneys ever. I highly encourage anyone who has been in accident to go with Samer and Mike if your hurt or injured there is no firm better than this one. Thanks again Samer I appreciate all the work and help you and your team have done so i can get through this! :)read more
