Why Injury Victims Who Hire A Personal Injury Attorney Get More Money

Research proves that injury victims who hire an attorney at a law firm to handle their personal injury claim collect significantly more in compensation than those who try to handle things by themselves:

  • An analysis by the Insurance Research Council (IRC) revealed that settlements for auto accident victims who had retained an attorney were on average 40 percent higher than the agreements negotiated by victims who tried to negotiate for themselves.
  • A separate IRC study found that 85% of all funds paid by auto insurance companies for claims go to individuals who retained a personal injury lawyer.

There are many reasons why insurance companies pay more to injury victims who are represented by an experienced accident attorney. Perhaps the most significant factor is that insurance companies and their claim adjusters and attorneys negotiate settlements every single day. Experienced accident attorneys do the same, but victims don’t.

A skilled Waukegan lawyer will not be intimidated or fooled by the tactics used by insurance companies to try to pay the lowest amount possible or not pay anything at all.

An insurance company is a business, not a charity. Every penny they pay in claims is a dollar that cuts into their profits. They will do everything possible to either deny your claim or try to get you to accept the lowest possible amount of money. When you are looking at mounting medical bills, car repair costs, and other expenses after a motor crash, it can be tempting to take any offer the insurer gives you. They know that.

But insurers also know that claimants who have an attorney on their side aren’t such easy marks. They understand that an attorney won’t be fooled by their denials of liability or efforts to reach a lowball settlement. If they know that the attorney is aggressive, thorough, and fully prepared to take a matter to trial, they will be more inclined to make a more significant offer in hopes of avoiding a costly and unpredictable result from a jury.
