After a car accident, injury victims are often overwhelmed with medical appointments, property damage expenses, medical bills, and other accident complications. Insurance companies often contact injured parties after a collision and pressure them to accept settlement offers. Unfortunately, injured parties who agree to settlement offers without first consulting an attorney are often left undercompensated and paying out of pocket for accident-related damages.
If you have been injured in a car accident, the attorneys at Tillmann Law can help. We know that it can take time to discover the extent of your injuries and accident losses. We also know that accepting an insurance company’s first offer is rarely in your best interests. Our attorneys represent those who have been injured in car accidents, and we are dedicated to maximizing compensation in every car accident case.
If you are contacted by an insurance company after an accident, you may be tempted to try to negotiate a settlement without an attorney. This is exactly what the insurance companies want you to do because they know that adjusters typically end up paying more for claims when injured parties are represented by an attorney.
We begin our legal representation by meeting with clients to go over car accident details and injuries sustained. We then start the discovery phase to collect evidence demonstrating liability and the losses you have suffered. Once we have calculated the value of your claim, including past, ongoing, and future damages, we will negotiate with defendants and insurance representatives to reach a settlement agreement.
Our attorneys are always prepared for trial because we care about our clients, and we want to make sure that they get the compensation that they deserve. We reach settlement agreements for many of our injury claims. However, we will be prepared to litigate your case if necessary because we would rather take your claim to trial than accept a settlement offer that does not cover the full extent of your losses.
We take on personal injury cases when we believe we can help our clients secure a financial recovery. We know that many people face financial struggles after a car accident due to missed work, medical bills, and other expenses. We represent our injured clients on a contingency fee basis so that you only pay for legal representation after we help you reach a settlement agreement or win at trial.
