The bottom line, as I stated in the introductory video, is that insurance carriers want to pay the minimum possible for your case. Insurance adjusters are trained to set ranges in which they can settle cases. That means they set a low end and a high end between which they can settle your case. Obviously, their goal is to settle that the lowest possible amount within that range.

If you don’t have an experienced personal injury attorney, the adjuster knows they can get away with settling at the low end or even the bottom of their range. Insurance adjusters are not there to help you and will not give you ideas about how to build or strengthen your case to increase the value. That will be up to you alone. There are several value drivers that personal injury lawyers will present to the insurance adjuster that you, handling the case on your own, would likely not even know about… Unless you have watched all of my informational videos of course. 😉

If you have an experienced personal injury attorney working for you, they will build your case early on, which will result in a higher range being selected by the insurance carrier up front. Not only will the range that is used be higher, but with a solid personal injury attorney on your side, they can fight to get a settlement that is at the top of that increased range.

Without an attorney, the insurance adjuster will convince you that they’re paying you a fair settlement, because you don’t know about the range and the various value drivers. If you are seriously injured it’s best to get an experienced injury attorney on your side.

Accident Client

“Last March, my partner was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street. During this difficult time of healing, we knew that bills were going to pile up and his was going to be a long process. After looking at multiple law firms, we knew that Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers was going to be the best place to work with. Lauren and her team were patient, supportive and caring during his difficult time. His schedule was always busy with work and doctor appointments that his main source of communication was through email. Lauren and her team made it to where he didn’t have to worry about anything but just sending over the paper work he got from the hospital, and other bill collectors involving his incident and they worried about the rest.

Because of all their help my partner Aaron, was able to heal with less worries on his shoulders. By end of December, everything was settled and we were pleased with the results. I’d like to give a huge thank you to Lauren & the Sally Morin team. If you’re looking for a law firm for your incident, I’d definitely look at this law firm.”
